We spent our first night in Antigua here and it was perfect. Staff was friendly and helpful. The rate was very inexpensive considering the size, comfort, and attention to detail in the rooms. My friend and I especially enjoyed the decor, traditional dark wood furniture and the gorgeous garden and terrace. The hotel was quiet and peaceful

Was difficult to find. Sign is about a foot tall and to the right of the door. The location is a straight shot to the arches and plaza. It’s further than other hotels but bc its a straight road it’s always easy to find.
We got there late and someone let us in and showed us to our room. Music was banging next door so loud but eventually shut off. Bed was broken or mattress was that worn bc you would roll to the middle bc it sagged so bad. Didn’t sleep well there. Wouldn’t stay at that one again but the staff is super nice and helpful.

The service here was Amazing. Brian took great care of us throughout the week that we were here. Our little one was sick and they brought us whatever we needed. Close to everything and about as quiet as it gets in the middle of town. I would definitely stay here again.

Great prices, dont get me wrong.
Staff need additional training. One of my hotel charges appeared on a fellow bill, despite we each have two separate names, two separate reservation and yet front desk still charged HER for my room.
Second, there is no breakfast option. Fortunately, 100 meters away is the Guatemala chain restaurant of "San Martin." Great option.
Price point is economical, hotel is safe, quiet and I can appreciate them having a water bowl and dog food dish for the occasional stray dog that wanders in off the street. Adds to the image of compassion. Please look at this photo I've attached; it's placed in the main walkway; there is no jacuzzi, there is no swimming pool, there is no food. RonPodmore.com

The location is fantastic. It's very close to the central park and it's nice and quiet, with a lovely central garden. However! Breakfast is not available onsite as described. They offer a discount on a small selection of items at a place four blocks away (!) and call that "breakfast available". Very disappointing since that was a priority feature for us. Also, we never had a full hot shower. If we were lucky enough to dial in to some hot water it only lasted a few minutes. The staff weren't concerned. One of the beds was very comfortable and the other one was ... cardboard? To end on a positive note, we woke to lovely bird songs every morning.

This was a beautiful, quiet hotel with a lovely garden and terrace. Our room was simple and comfortable, exactly what was need after a long day of travel. The front desk people were very helpful. I would stay here for the garden view and peace and quiet anytime.

Positives:
-Hotel is very conveniently located only two blocks from the parque central and walking distance to all major sights and restaurants
-rooms very clean if a little dark, overlooking beautiful courtyard garden
-staff very friendly and will arrange a transfer from aurora airport if you call in advance for USD37. They also kindly arranged for transfer to chichi for us.
-good value breakfast at USD5
-we stayed in room 10 which was great as on the top floor and right at the end so you have fewer people walking past.

Negatives:
-The hotel puts up signs which i think go against the basic etiquette of hoteling and border on the almost rude. Outside our room was a sign saying , smile you are on camera. Inside the room on the door you had signs, saying we will check your room before you leave for missing or broken items, take care of stuff..
- all hotels we stayed in guatemala quote prices inclusive of taxes meson does not. The difference is considerable, its 28percent which is misleading
-i also did not like the fact that they attempt to charge you in quetzals at higher exchange rate at 8 to USD. Its more like 7.5 in the shops and 6.3 in the airport. Also levy 6 percent surcharge if you use a credit or debit card!
-contrary to other reviews our room was not that quiet, music was clearly audible till 1am as bars and restaurants located very close blurt out loud music
-the walls are paper thin, we could here every conversation our neighbours had even though im sure they were not being very loud. So bottom line, this is not the place to stay if you are a light sleeper.
- no fridge in the room.

Overall a well located and well appointed hotel with friendly staff and i am sure most guests will enjoy their stay. The three rather four stars is due to 1. Noise and 2. Management's lack of subtlety around signs and sharp practice around room pricing and exchange rate which made us feel a little like they were trying to take advantage of us and other guests, which is never good.

We arrived at Hotel Meson Del Valle with a reservation made on their website. We are a mother son travelling so we booked a double suite with two beds. They took us to a room hidden under the stairs that had such a strong smell of mould I highly doubt it's even safe to stay in. The window did not lock and it is at ground level. It also had only one bed.

Their solution was a crappy cot which I'm sorry is not a "double suite". For this they offered no discount or other option on site although the hotel appears to be empty.

I own and operate a hotel. These kinds of things only happen from a lack of management and leadership and it is completely unacceptable and in our case, likely unsafe for your health.

They sent us to another hotel who I believe is the same owner but seems to be under much better management.

We are thankful for the comments, truthful or not. I am sorry this guest had a bad experience in the hotel. According to most other 100 + reviews, people are very pleased with their time here. We do not have any rooms under the stairs, please be truthful and not exagerate your reviews. It is true, during the rainy season, Antigua hotel rooms have more humidity, but our rooms do not have any mold. What she was calling a crappy cot was actually a regular twin bed with full mattress and box springs. We offer standard double rooms. We also offer suites that are a little larger rooms and larger bathrooms with separate shower and 2 person jacuzzi tubs. Our prices for a double room is $50 to $75, depending weekday or weekend. This is a very good value for a 3.5 star hotel, and very much in line or below the price of other similar Antigua hotels. So, we feel our guest recieve a very good value for their money. I think this guest was expecting a suite at the Ritz for their $70. I would like one too, for that price. Honestly, this guest does not need to travel international, because she wanted everything to be just like she had at a large corporate hotel in the states.

Quiet hotels are hard to find in Antigua, and this is a major plus for this hotel, having suffered with sleep elsewhere. The rooms are nice if a little dark, staff are nice and location is great.

The major negative for me is how the price is disclosed on the various booking sites. Price is quoted less taxes and charges which in total come to 28%. I feel this is dishonest . We did not experience this in other hotels. If this was sorted I would be happier with the hotel.
