El Meson de Maria

Characterful hotel within a converted colonial residence

Boutique hotel with interesting design touches

Located in the heart of historic Antigua, El Meson de Maria is a charming boutique hotel housed within a converted colonial residence.

Featuring 20 characterful rooms adorned with local crafts and traditional furnishings, each exudes a unique charm. Suites offer shared terraces or patios, along with the added luxury of a fireplace and jacuzzi, while standard rooms, though more compact, are tastefully decorated.

Reflecting its Spanish colonial heritage, the hotel's interior is a showcase of period furniture, art, and decor, evoking the ambiance of a refined private residence.

Guests can unwind in the central courtyard or on the terraces, taking in panoramic views of the old town and surrounding volcanoes. Breakfast is served in either the dining room or courtyard, and while the hotel does not offer other meals, local restaurants provide delivery services for dining in the comfort of the property. However, with numerous dining options within walking distance, culinary exploration awaits just beyond the hotel's doorstep.
