Da House is the urban-latino pronunciation of 'The House', with the emphasis on 'the', 'the one', 'the space where it is happening'. In this case, it is your vacation or visit to Old San Juan. You will find yourself proudly replying in Da House to inquiries as to where you stayed.
Located in the heart of Old San Juan, above legendary cafe teatro 'The Nuyorican Cafe'. We offer clean, comfortable, eclectic accomodations in a friendly, vibrant setting that is reminiscent of the character of hostals in great European cities like Amsterdam, Paris or Barcelona.

Great location but the pool was out of service

We booked the hotel on a whim while travelling in PR and were disappointed that the roof top pool was out of service. Other than that the value for money was great. If you are bringing a lot of luggage, note that there is no elevator at the hotel and bring your own toiletries as they only provide a bar of soap. There is no TV but free internet on the second floor. Also, you can hear salsa music till 4am so if it is not your thing make sure your room is on the upper floor. I would stay there again provided the pool is fixed.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

For an authentic Boricua breakfast go to the Majorca cafe and order a breakfast on Majorca bread (located just down calle San Francisco. For a good afternoon pub try El Patio de Sam on calle San SebastiƔn where there is happy hour 2 for 1 drinks in the afternoons.

Good location

The location is great; it is right in old San Juan and walking distance to the El Morro fort (which has an amazing view). It is also walking distance to restaurants and bar. The downside is that there is no elevator (if you have heavy luggage). Also there is no wifi unless you are in the lobby (2nd floor). There is also a salsa club downstair which is really loud if you try to sleep before 3am.

Great Location

The hotel is located right in the heart of Old San Juan. Within walking distance of everything in Old San Juan. Safe. The Hotel is basic. You get what you pay for as its inexpensive. The rooms are clean and very Puerto Rican. The hotel staff is friendly and gave us good tips on where to go out and drink at night. If you don't like noise I wouldnt stay here, as its above a salsa club that stays open very late. I traveled with my boyfriend and we loved it (but we are from a city so noise doesnt bother us). My one concern was the beds, very basic, noisy, not really comfortable. But hey you have to give on something, and its very affordable!

Marmalade. It is literally around the corner. Amazing food, probably he best meal I have ever had. Pricey (was 270$ for 2), but was well worth the splurge.

interesting and good value in Old San Juan

Despite some other reviews to the contrary, we found our room (on the third floor) not unbearably noisy due to the salsa/jazz club beneath at street level. Was a little thumping from the bass, but the airconditioning gave enough good "white noise" to drown most of it out. Would have loved to have partaken of the band, but unfortunately didn't start up until way after midnight. San Juan is after all a wee hours of the morning kind of place. But our room was wonderfully Sparten and CLEAN (the place used to be a convent) with local art work in all the rooms. hallways, and multi-story interconnecting air shafts. Great view from roof, but hot tub not working when we were there. Would be a nice place for a little bar. Nice helpful staff and close to everything (but what in OSJ isn't?) and great price! rather weak WIFI in room and a tiny little light bulb in bathroom, but otherwise, loved it.

old san juan or bust

No elevator and carrying bags up four flights of stairs was a bust. But it is located right in Old San Juan and has a great view from the roof top terrace.

Beautiful Anniversary/Birthday Getaway

We originally reserved The San Juan Beach Hotel and upon getting there we did not stay due to the rooms smelling bad of mold. We were able to reserve this hotel last minute and so happy we did. The hotel has beautiful art throughout roof and balcony access and in the middle of Old San Juan close to everything. The only reason i gave 4 stars is the rooftop jacuzzi was out of service and there is no mini refrigerator or tv in the room. Definitely not deal breakers and would definitely stay again it's a beautiful location.

Superb for a weekend break

Friendly staff who gave tips on places to go to find live music when checking in just before midnight and who were happy to organise early morning airport transfers. Lovely, simply furnished room (great antique Chinese furniture) that was perfectly comfortable. There is noise from the bar next-door but you come here prepared for that.

Hotel was fine nothing spectacular but the location and some of the artwork ... when I went no noise except on Sunday and was minimal from room 404.. room 404 nothing in room. a.c broke twice second time could not be fixed so was moved to 402 which actually has a fridge but as with other room nothing else .. 402 has shared balcony. Rooftop hottub not working /being fixed. Loved the location and thankfully did not see any bugs in room ... hotel needs updates but decent for a stay. When ur tired or drunk those steps are nooo bueno. If don't get to experience better Would stay again

Very helpful staff

A perfect location for being in the middle of Old St. Juan. Da House Hotel has a beautiful artistic atmosphere, which is very pleasing to the eyes. The staff were more than helpful with any question I threw at them. Rooms are not fancy, but plenty comfortable. Great view from roof with hot tub. I didn't want to leave. I highly recommend this hotel. The salsa music from downstairs was loud, but that's part of the fun!

Do not book

No elevator, no tv, no closet/dresser, except for 4 small drawers which do not fit 2 pairs of shorts. You would have to live out of your suitcase for your vacation, so do not take any close that needs to be hung. Be in good shape to up and down the stairs. The staff is great and very helpful as far as getting you around. If you're coming here to relax, it's not going to happen, book elsewhere, because they have a club downstairs which closes at 5AM, do you will not be able to get any sleep until after 5AM. Simply not what I expected for a getaway. Don't be fooled by the pictures placed on several travel websites, as these are pictures sent to them by the hotel, they've never visited this place.
