With its trickling fountains, echoing passageways, and traditional hanging tapestries, the Hotel Mesón de María preserves all the charm and hospitality of a bygone age of Antigua Guatemala. Housed in a restored 17th-century mansion just steps from the city’s plaza mayor, this cozy inn embodies the colonial heritage that so strikingly characterizes the cobbled streets and red-tiled roofs of this Central American marvel.
The Hotel Mesón de María offers a variety of amenities, from its rooftop terrace with splendid views of the Agua, Fuego, and Acatenango volcanoes, to its gorgeous hand-painted tile décor. It also caters to its guests with a range of services, from laundry to babysitting. But the main attraction of this inn is the sheer beauty of its accommodations, a living legacy of its deep historical heritage.
