Antigua has changed quite a lot since our first visit back in 2008 - inevitably it has become far more crowded and far more touristy. There are now many hawkers and also people begging and sleeping rough in the main plaza. There are also Range Rovers, Porsche Cayennes, designer dogs and large numbers of heavily armed police. It’s still a... More

Just had a lovely one night stay in this hotel, excellent location, friendly staff and such a beautiful interior! Breakfast was quite small but freshly made pancakes and waffles were avaliable. Great stay!

This hotel has a great location in Antigua. It is close to great restaurants, shopping and historical places. My favorite restaurants nearby were Frida's and a Mediterranean Cafe. Prices are a little high in Antigua when compared to smaller cities in Guatemala but it is worth checking out for a couple days. We also did a walking tour through the... More

I stayed here for 4 nights . Arriving very late after a flight from the UK and they were very friendly. I was amazed by the volcano view the next morning. Room and bathroom good. Breakfasts good and no restaurant but restaurant opposite was excellent. Also no bar, which was surprising, but the hotel provided a beer when I asked... More

Loved this place. I took so many photos of the arty objects (including the dentists chair) around the hotel. Every room and courtyard was lovely. An enjoyable explore. Our room was quite dark but it was at the rear of the hotel in a small courtyard. Not much natural light so we had to keep the light on. No dramas... More

The Meson de Maria is very attractive: arranged around 2 courtyards and with a roof terrace with stunning views. We had a 'suite', the best of their rooms, which was really just a good sized room with a large bathroom (complete with Jacuzzi and skylight) and a tiny outside seating area screened by potted plants. The standard rooms looked to... More

I found the room small, but clean. It has excellent free Wifi and CNN among the tv channels, which is very important for me. But I stayed at a room Next to the courtyard which I did not like at all because I could hear everybody and everything which happened in the courtyard. The breakfast buffet is Limited. It is...

Great service, extremely charming, central and good value. Every room is unique, great view of the volcanos from the roof top terrace. Nery the bellman was an excellent host and provided 5 star service. Would definitely recommend this place and will come here again when I'm back in Antigua.

Don't underestimate this hotel when viewed from the outside, it is like a designer Tardis inside. It is ideally placed to drop in and out of whilst walking around Antigua, plus you can get your bearings from the roof. Reception is trendily rustic, then you are through to the first courtyard where a very wholesome breakfast is served with good... More
