Heaven!

Perfect location, we walked everywhere. No need for a rental car if all you want to do is hang out in Old San Juan (where most things are anyway). Beautiful hotel, great staff, just awesome. And you get hotel/beach passes to their equally gorgeous hotel La Concha in Condado if you want ocean for the day. Can't wait to go back!

Living history

We really enjoyed staying at El Covento. The staff was extremely helpful, anticipating requests. The room was absolutely lovely, and staying in an old convent provided a feeling of living history, although with the addition of air conditioning. The location could not have been better, as it was possible to walk everywhere in Old San Juan.

Emerald Isle on Calle Fortalezza is a locally owned jewelry business with lovely, reasonably priced pieces. The owner, Lawrence, is very customer service-oriented.

Romantic getaway

If your staying in Old San Juan there is no better place than this romantic renovated old convent. Ammenaties and cleanliness complement the hotel's historic charm. Pool and excercise room make good use of limited space and are quaint/up-to-date. Entire staff were courteous, helpful and friendly. The complementary evening wine and cheese was a good place to begin your evening and meet other guests. My wife and I will definelty return.

Amazing boutique hotel with great history

Upon arriving at El Convento, we couldn't have been more happy. The staff is so helpful. The restaurants in the hotel are excellent. Can't wait until my next trip back.

Perfection

Even with an extra hour and a half wait checking-in (our room wasn't ready and the check-in time kept being pushed back), our stay was perfection. Our room was grand with large windows looking out onto Catedral de San Juan Bautista. What a view! The staff was helpful and the complimentary drinks/bottled water a plus, but the nightly complimentary wine and cheese reception was our favorite part. It is not to be missed.

Beautiful, historic hotel in Old San Juan

Gorgeous building, beautiful arch-ways, with an interior courtyard...very romantic. Helpful, friendly staff. Excellent restaurants. Would definitely go back in a heartbeat! Right in the city, you can walk to everything. Take a cab to one of the hotel's sister facilities when you want a day at the beach/larger pool. The rooftop pool is small at El Convento, but great to cool off after a day of sight-seeing. Can't wait to return!!!!!! Would highly recommend!

Hotel El Convento Old San Juan

Positives: This was one of the best hotel stays we have ever had. The hotel is old but in excellent shape, located in the center of Old SJ and in walking distance to all parts of the old city. Staff excellent. Do not expect new hotel room size though. A/C worked great in room. Negatives: Parking at hotel $25/ day for guests. Friday night price triple any other day! Friday night noisey as they have ladies night in one of the restaurants.
