My boyfriend and I stayed at Meson del Valle for three nights and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The staff was extremely helpful. They answered any questions we had about tours and attractions throughout Antigua and set up our shuttle to the airport without any problems. We also had an amazing (and huge!) breakfast every morning.
The location is quite ideal. This was our first time in Antigua so we weren't completely sure if we were staying in an accessible part of town. We were in luck with Meson del Valle as it's located on 5a Avenida Sur, one of the busier streets with plenty of shops and restaurants. It's also just a few blocks from the central park and a block away from the pick up spot for a few tours and attractions around the town.
There were only two drawbacks on this location: The walls are quite thin and you can hear just about everything and there were a couple times when we were without water. Thin walls are something we could easily get over, but no water became an issue. However, we just told the staff and they turned on a reserve. No big deal! However, it did give us a reality check. Although Antigua is beautiful and bustling with tourists, it's important to remember that Guatemala is still a very poor country and it made us realize there's a lot more beyond the polished look of Antigua.
