The Miramar Hotel San Juan extends a friendly hand to anyone visiting San Juan's shores, with its traditional bar and rooftop views of the lagoon and the Atlantic beyond. Even the most dedicated workers are treated to a warmly-lit, comfy business lounge, complete with eclectic furniture and lampshades, while wooden writing desks stand in for computer stations for a 'home office' feel. The Bistro 606 Restaurant serves up tempting plates of tapas over a glass or two of vino. The gym is located on the same floor as the ocean side sundeck, so sticking to your vacation workout may prove a challenge.

Neighborhood

The Miramar Hotel San Juan is located at the crossroads of San Juan in the unassuming neighborhood of Miramar. To the northwest across the water lies the district of Old San Juan, with its sea-forts and rambling cobbled walkways; to the east is the upscale Condado district, with Condado and Oceanpark beaches providing all the surfing and volleyball action you could wish for. The nearby Puerto Rico Convention Center is the gleaming, modern landmark of the district, and the calm waters of Condado Lagoon are only a block away.

Hints and tips

Buses run by the stop in front of the hotel frequently, so it's easy to get around San Juan and cross the bridge into the old historic district as well.

Inexpensive Lima Bar does a mean ceviche for dinner, and there's also a movie theater located a block away from the hotel for those looking to catch a flick.

Area description
Miramar is, for the most part, a quiet, unassuming neighborhood across the water from Condado. It's a mix of residential community, business sector, and some admittedly shady areas. But Miramar's fortune changed with the arrival of the Puerto Rico Convention Center. An architectural wonder, the center is still putting it's stamp on the neighborhood, but it has already transformed the landscape.
Directions from San Juan Airport: Take Route 26 West to San Juan. Take exit: "Ave RH Todd-Santurce Pda.18-Condado Centro".Turn left at street light. Turn right onto Ponce de Leon Ave (Rt.25). Hotel is at the end of the avenue on your left. Stay on the inside left lane and make a U turn to access the hotel.

Pleasantly surprised...

Picked the hotel based on it's proximity to the airport... was expecting a dumpy place. The hotel is super cute, close to everything, the food at the bistro is fantastic and the staff is very helpful. We saw a great movie at the cinema just a block away, grocery store and restaurants all at your steps.

You Have to Take a Chance

Besides the WiFi not working in the first room and the remote control for the TV not working. The second room we asked to be tranfered to when available was really nice and it had both working. They should tell you about the terrace when you check in because its a beautifull site but we found out about it the last day we were there by another guest that stumbled upon it. If you rent a car it is really good because it is close to the beach without all the mark ups of a resort on the beach and use money you save on activities there. Close to everything not walking distance but bus or rent a car distance.

Vacation

staff was very helpful and polite. time spent on the roof viewing the surf was beautiful, the exercise room was small but adequate as was the laundry. vending machines did not always work. need for more parking area is a negative, but you can leave your keys with the front desk and they will move your car if needed.

Precruise hotel night

The hotel is walking distance to the water, but we didn't care. There are many restaurants up and down the street as well as one in the hotel. The only drawback is there is only one person checking folks in. So if a group arrives all at once, you just have to wait your turn. We got there a little early and our room wasn't ready -- they gave us a different room. It's not new and fancy, but prefectly fine for a night prior to cruising.

Family Vacation

We stayed at this hotel twice, once upon arriving and again the night before we left. It's location is ideal, just 10 minutes from the airport and also to the rental car places. The bus stop to Old San Juan is just a few minutes away and it takes one to the bus station near the boat docks in Old San Juan. The staff were helpful, the food service at the Bistro on site is so so but there are good restaurants within walking distance. Traffic noise early in the morning could be a problem. Taxis are readily available. They allowed us to check our email on their computers for free.

Nice reasonable hotel

I liked the hotel a lot. A great value for the money. The restaurant was exceptionally slow for breakfast by northern standards

Everything was good but the bed

Wonderful staff, good location close to convention center and beach hotels, nice restaurants nearby, bistro nice for breakfast and lunch. The bedding needs to be updated...mattress hard , mattress cover in tatters. Bedding tolerable, but experience would be enhanced by a new set.

Could definitely use some improvements

While the cost of the hotel is reasonable, you are getting what you pay for. Like other reviewers, our shower drains were AWFUL with water starting to accumulate within 3 min into the shower. Not to mention that there is insufficient hot water. The gym also leaves little to be desired. If you are willing to put up for the horrible shower conditions, the cost may be worth it.
