This is such a cute hotel in Antigua! I love their rooftop with the chairs to sit on. It's a good base point to room and explore Antigua. Our first night here, we saw lava spewing from the volcano in the distance! That was amazing! Additionally, I love that they have a restaurant right across across the pebble-stone street that...

We stayed at this hotel for one night in August 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location of the hotel is perfect, very central and a short walk to city centre/the park/many shops and restaurants. The building itself is beautifully decorated, with a lovely open ceiling courtyard in the middle of the hotel quarters. Clean rooms and bathrooms, with... More

What a beautiful colonial building this hotel is set in. The room we had was beautifully decorated, comfortable and just what we needed. The hotel grounds and rooftop are beautiful and the location is superb. The breakfast, free coffee on demand and staff are great.

Hotel with a lot of colonial character and nice common areas, especially the rooftop with views of the town, volcanoes, Cerro de la Cruz, Catedral, etc. Clean rooms with hot water. Very nice, hard-working staff that will go out of their way to make your stay pleasant and who can help direct you to local attractions. Wifi worked well. Landmarks,... More

Traveled with wife and three adult kids - stayed in Meson de Maria while visiting Antigua. Arrived shortly after midnight, and were greeted by a big smile of the reception. All luggage moved upstairs - rooms were a bit hot, but got immediately a fan in the room. Rooms well decorated in traditional style. Fantastic patio's - although some North... More

I've stayed here twice and really like it there. Low key with a lot of places to hang around when you need a respite from touring the town. The people are friendly and helpful. Nice view of the volcanos and city roofs from the terrace above. Although kid friendly given the need to have your bar covered windows open to... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in April as part of an independent Guatemala tour. We travel extensively but have rarely come across a place that was so full of character and atmosphere! We had asked for a room on the top floor in the back courtyard to avoid any breakfast noise in the morning and got... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice now while I have been doing some work in and around Antigua. The hotel is very well situated near the main square of Antigua. The rooms are comfortable (if a little dark) and very clean. I think what I like most about this hotel are the common areas outside of the rooms. There are... More

The room was stuffy the first night but at breakfast we asked for a fan which was delivered immediately. This made the room perfect. Nery, our host is the most caring hotel employee I have encountered throughout the world. He remembers every detail about his guests. Upon walking into the restaurant the second morning he asked, "cafe negro y cafe... More

Great location, welcoming/helpful staff and lovely building. Yet this was one of the most uncomfortable stays of our 4 months travelling across Latin America. The rooms are just too hot and stuffy (they gave us a fan when we asked but it did not make much difference) and extremely cramped. I have no idea why there are two double beds... More
