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.

Good value hotel

This hotel is actually not a bad one. There was a microwave, washing machine, dryer, sun deck. Rooms were cleaned each day, everything was tidy. Beds are comfy and rooms were nice. The only problem was the food counter had these little tiny black bugs that were annoying. Love the sun deck, we enjoyed eating a lot of our meals there. Great place to also sun tan and just relax. Location is pretty decent. You're just a few walk from Old San Juan, Condado and even Isla Verde via bus. Bus is right up the street, you also have restaurants nearby and even a supermarket!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy some items from the supermarket (Pueblo). You save a lot of money cooking your breakfast in the hotel. You can also buy snacks there too!

great place to stay!

My girlfriends and I stayed in a 2 bedroom and it was very comfy. We loved how it had a.microwave and refrigerator because it came in handy a lot. One of my girlfriends had given me a compliment about booking this hotel because of its location amd amenities. Altho we were disappointed about the false advertising on the complimentary breakfast but its ok because there was a good cafè across the street to go and eat. Overall a great experience!

Great Girls Getaway

The hotel was great for the time that we were there. Not exactly very close to the beach. The bus system was okay, confusing at times. But great for the amount of the fare.

Great for the Price

The front desk staff was awesome. Don't fall into the tourist trap of taking a taxi, it's overpriced, instead utilize the bus stop right next to the hotel. It is only 75 cents each way and airconditioned. The front desk is more than happy to tell you which bus to take to get to your destination, including downtown San Juan and the airport.

not bad at all

Although staff is friendly they could of been more helpful in certain areas such as clarifying which bus to take. The room was very clean and had ammenities such as a refrigerator, microwave, iron board, everything needed for extended stay. Conveniently located between Isles de Verde and Old San Juan. Both were easily reached by bus which is 75 cents each way exact change only. Real good and reasonbly priced restaurants with 5 minute walk. Taxi to and from airport is $16 plus $1 per baggage. Let cabbie know u know the going rate to avoid rip off. Would stay again.

Good location and nice size rooms

The staff was very friendly and helpful - especially when giving directions. The room was bigger than anticipated and we enjoyed the mini-fridge and microwave. The beaches aren't to far to walk to but you will do quite a bit of walking. There are a couple local restaurants close by as well as a grocery store and pharmacy. If you have a car, parking can be tight but they'll "valet" it for you. Very convenient to a bus stop for easy access to Old San Juan.

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.
