Great location

The hotel doesn't offer much aside from a place to sleep and that it is located in a great area in old san juan. Needs to arrange some sort of parking arrangement nearby for greater convenience. Also, the bed wasn't very comfy but I'm used to sleeping in a tempur pedic bed, so it may just be me. The food at the restaurant is expensive and not very good tasting. Small portions and bland. They should lower their prices on the food and/or at least offer free breakfast. I would recommend for a short stay. Also, they don't have an elevator but are in the process of building one.

Charming Hotel in Old San Juan

We selected this hotel for it's location and relatively reasonable price. It is inside Old San Juan and close to great restaurants and attractions. The decorations are charm. The only drawback was that it does not have elevator, and it does have 5 floors.

Perfect for Old San Juan

If you are looking for a unique hotel right in the heart of Old San Juan this hotel is perfect. The room we stayed in was a little small but we didnt plan to be in the room except to sleep anyway. The location is perfect if you are wanting to explore Old San Juan. It is also very close to one of the parking garages if you plan on having a rental card. There is also a very cool rooftop area that features outdoor tubs. As long as you arent expecting a frilly hotel room, you wont disappointed with this hotel. There is also a restaurant and bar in the hotel and the front desk staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

best kept secret

this place is conveniently located in the middle of the old San Juan. Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about sites of interest. The décor is amazing, every room is different. the room was clean and the bed very comfortable. To top it all there were bathtubs on the roof that you can enjoy day or night. It definitely exceeded my expectations There are no elevators and this makes it not suitable for people that can not manage going up and down the stairway. I would recommend it for a couple since the setting is very romantic. kids will be bored here since they can not appreciate the beauty and historic value of this cute hotel.
