My husband and myself have stayed here for 4 nights in mid November 2015. This is a beautiful little Hotel in prime location in Antigua. Its only a 5 min walk from the main plaza.There are many Restaurants and Coffee shops near the Hotel, it couldn't be more convenient. Nearby eating out: We have been eating out at the restaurant...

To set this in context, this was by far the best hotel we stayed in out of 12 hotels in 6 countries during our visit to Central America. Located in a beautifully restored colonial building one street back from the main Plaza, it's convenient but quiet. The rooms were lovely with an outside terrace (and a rooftop terrace with stunning...

I could not have been happier with my choice to stay at Meson de Maria and I have no reason to look elsewhere the next time I am in Antigua. Location, Setting, and Staff made this a perfect stay. The Location is 1.8 blocks from central park and roughly the same to the Arc, which is great for ease of...

A friend had recommended this hotel and I booked for one night just in case I didn't like it. I ended up booking another two nights there! The staff was amazing and friendly in every respect. The style of the hotel is a beautiful upgraded colonial and the room was immaculate. It was centrally located to everything!

I love the location one block from the central square yet quiet. They don't nickel and dime you: free wifi, plenty of free water and breakfast is included. Many nice restaurants walking distance. The problem with some of the more expensive hotels thst they are further away, and are not so pleasant to walk to after dark.

We spent 2 nights here and slept well each night. The staff members were friendly, helpful and vested in our enjoyment of our time there. Rooms were small but clean and comfy. They have a number of lovely outdoor spaces to sit and relax and a view to die for from the rooftop. Breakfast was satisfactory and there are several...

This was our first hotel on our trip through Guatemala and our best. It's in a great central location yet has a lovely relaxing atmosphere inside. Our room was gorgeous and spacious and we loved the decor. All the rooms overlook a beautiful courtyard and there's a roof terrace with a great view of Antigua. Breakfast was a highlight each...

Hotel Meson de Maria is one of the most charming hotels that I've ever stayed in! Located a block and a half from the Main Plaza makes it the ideal place to explore beautiful Antigua from. The decor is eclectic with plenty of antiques and flowers adding to its charm. The roof-top patio is the perfect vantage spot to relax...

We absolutely loved our stay at meson de maria. Though, Santa Domingo is the premiere hotel in Antigua (and it is absolutely stunning), we found the rooms there too plain and stark. By contrast, rooms at Meson De Maria are warm and colourful and beautifully appointed. The staff are very helpful and I would even say "chipper" popping up out...
