I absolutely loved it here! It's just full of little corners to relax, read and take in the old world vibe of the hotel. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Roof terrace is amazing. Delicious breakfast. Staff are friendly, smiling and so helpful. So Central- just walk out the door and you are in the middle of it all.... More

This small boutique hotel located in the heart of Antigua was a perfect fit for us. Built around a central courtyard, with an incredible rooftop patio, this hotel was very quiet and intimate. Carlos and Louis at the front desk could not have been more helpful. From arranging tour guides, shuttles to the airport and suggesting places to eat, they... More

Spent 3 nights in Meson de Maria before heading off to Lake Atitlan and Chichicastenango, then back to this great hotel, and same room, for another couple of nights before our long trip home after 7 weeks away. Loved the place, had room 205/206? can't quite remember, but it was a lovely room with balcony on the second floor. The... More

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
