Great location between the Arch and the central plaza in Antigua. Clean rooms, plenty of bottled water supplied daily, queen beds extremely firm but (to me) still comfortable. Kind and helpful staff, lovely setting with an idyllic courtyard and porches providing space to lounge, and a great rooftop terrace with excellent views of the surrounding hills and volcanoes. Room had a nice flat-screen TV, good bedside reading lamps, and a safe inside the wardrobe. The power outlets accommodate American electrical plugs, so no need for a converter. Concierge can supply a blow-dryer if you need one. Be sure to bring your own travel alarm clock, though, or to use your cell phone to set a wake-up alarm.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 210, which is at the end of the veranda above the central courtyard, with a sofa and chairs on the covered porch. No tub, but the shower had a skylight.

Loved Antigua. Loved the hotel and everything about it. The communal areas are beautifully done and a great place to relax after a day's sightseeing. There is a lot of outdoor areas and a nice roof terrace with fabulous views.

The breakfast was a local plate of eggs and beans and cheese - very tasty. They were kind enough to provide us with a small packed breakfast for us to enjoy as we had an early checkout.

The restaurant opposite was great too, and is also owned by the hotel. Bill Clinton has eaten there!

Would recommend both.

You can barely identify there is a hotel there when you are next to the main enterance to this hotel, but once you enter it feels like magic: very warm and friendly environment both in the rooms and in the public spaces, very nice bathrooms and very friendly staff. The decorations make the place feel like a warm and welcoming family mansion. There is free cold water during the day, coffee and hot chocolate in the evenings. Breakfast is either pancakes or Guatemalean eggs, toast and beans, both excellent, though not very large, but the staff replenish anything you ask, And the breakfast room feels just right, not too large, cosy and friendly. The rooms are a bit small, but there are lovely public spaces next to all of them. And the roof offers a spectacular view of the whole Antigua region.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the second floor. There are lovely nooks you can sit and read or write or meditate on.

Beautiful. Great location. Very attentive staff. Small and cozy rooms. Spectacular views. We (family of six) were guests here for three nights. Loved the design, decor, location.
The view from the rooftop is great, the public areas are inviting! Two blocks from the Central Park, and pretty much anything worth doing in Antigua.

El Mesón de Maria is located in the centre, but it's very peaceful and cozy. The decoration and the furniture are very nice, there are little details to discover everywhere (e.g. on my key ring there is a cute little wooden statue of - probably - Maria :)). There are two patios, lots of plants and flowers, a roof terrace with nice views, lots of outdoor seating, it's a lovely place. I'm staying in room 206 which is larger than most of their rooms, with a fireplace and a little balcony over a patio and a fountain (which is unfortunately not switched on all the time... maybe some guests are disturbed by the sound at night... but when I asked the reception to switch it on, they did immediately). Wifi is good. Breakfast is a choice between pancakes and fruit, and the traditional Guatemalan breakfast of eggs, beans and cheese, both are tasty. The staff simply couldn't be more friendly. After having discovered this place, I would never stay elsewhere in Antigua.

Room Tip: Room n 206 is a great choice :).
