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.

clean hotel in a convenient location

The Miramar is within easy walking distance to the Condado area (over the bridge). Its also conveniently located at the highways that connect to the east (El Yunque, Fajardo), south (Ponce, etc), and west (the Bacardi plant!) The staff was great and the room very clean...

the room has bad smell and the AC is too loud

It's a small hotel with a small lobby. The staff is OK. But the room has some kind of smell and the AC is too loud and I cannot sleep.

San Juan

The hotel was average...the location good, the service great. There was a night without running water b/c they had to clear the water lines. We didn't have water to flush the toilet, wash or brush teeth for 12 hours. It was a little inconvenient to say the least. Also, the rooms did not have coffee makers nor was there coffee available in the lobby. NO breakfast either.

Great price and service, but skip the cafe

The hotel staff was always great and accommodating. Walter happily answered any questions we had and always had quarters on hand when we needed to exchange dollars for change for the bus and/or laundry machine. The top balcony is the best feature of the hotel. It's quiet up there and the view is nice, albeit obstructed by a few badly abandoned buildings and parking lots. The hotel is located a short bus ride from pretty much everything. There are some nice restaurants in the area, but pricey (average $22 a plate), even pricier for the fancier restaurant. One thing about Puerto Rico restaurants is the service is awful across the board and mediocre at best. Maybe I'm just spoiled by great service from where I'm from. The worst part about the hotel is the adjoining cafe. Aside from the horrible service and pricey menu, the staff are unprofessional and mostly absent. The chef seconded as the bartender the entire time we were there and he didn't know how to make even simple drinks (less than three ingrediants), which became increasingly annoying. The people who live in the area are not the friendliest. On our first day a guy on his bike tried to start a fight with my boyfriend, who was standing outside the grocery store waiting for me to check out. My boyfriend just ignored him and we left. And no, you will not be a snob if you return thinking the the hotel's surrounding area is run down and not so great. We didn't let this deter us from going out, but it is definitely a valid observation and worth taking into consideration.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

I highly recommend taking a guided tour (E&B Tours -- ask Walter to make the reservation for you) of rain forest. The package includes an all-day excursion of the rain forest and Luquillo Beach for $75 per person. The tour guide, Joey, was excellent. Warning: There is an astounding number of homeless dogs and cats that roam Luquillo Beach. It was extremely depressing. Most of the dogs has exposed rib cages. All the dogs I encountered were social and friendly. I was informed by a worker that people drop off their unwanted dogs at the beach. My research later confirmed this and, worst, that animal homelessness and cruelty is an epidemic in Puerto Rico.

Wonderfully Romantic Honeymoon Stay

My husband and I were thrilled with the MIramar! Located in the business district, the all-night diner, post office, bank and grocery store were all conveniently close by. Even the "tourist section" and beach, and Old San Juan were just a short walk away. The cleaning staff did a wonderful job--the room was spotless. The reception staff was so pleasant and incredibly helpful, too. We really enjoyed chatting with them and got great advice about the city, the culture and "must see" places. Also, the view from the sun terrace is amazing! One can appreciate the tropical city-scape, the lagoon, and the ocean. It was the perfect place to enjoy a pitcher of mojitos as the sun set. Staying at the Miramar was a wonderful experience.

From the Miramar hotel, the all-night diner "Los Pinos Cafe" is less than a block away. The food is good, and the prices are reasonable as well. The grocery store, "Pueblo", is about 2 blocks away, and has a delicious dine in/take out specials for under 4 dollars. Breakfast is the best: Ham, eggs, toast, and coffee. The tostones are great there, too.

PERFECT SERVICE FROM STAFF!

THE HOTEL STAFF, FROM RECEPTION TO MAID SERVICE WAS THE BEST. VERY CONGENIAL, COURTEOUS AND ACCOMODATING. SECOND NIGHT WE WERE THERE THE BATH TUB DRAIN CLOGGED. WALTER, THE CONCIERGE IMMEDIATELY UP-GRADE US TO A BIGGER ROOM AND GAVE US COMPLEMENTARY BREAKFAST VOUCHERS AT THE HOTEL BISTRO. AFTETR A 5 NIGHT STAY, IT FELT LIKE FAMILY. THE ROOF TOP TERRACE GIVES YOU A VIEW OF OLD SAN JUAN, THE CIVIC AREA, AND THE OCEAN. BEAUTIFUL, AND AFFORDS YOU GREAT PHOTOS. HOTEL IS LOCATED CONIENANTLY CLOSE TO THE EXPRESSWAY, MAKING DRIVING TO DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE ISLAND VERY CONVIENENT, AND TEN MINUTES FROM THE AIRPORT. MY KUDOS TO THE EXCELLENT STAFF.
