Perfect Location

Would recommend Sat, Dec 19, 2015
A beautiful quaint old hotel, but just that...old. I recommend this hotel but only for certain people who are not looking for any luxuries. If what you are looking for is just a place to crash in a perfect location with friendly service for a reasonable fee, then the Hotel Plaza de Armas is for you. Otherwise, if you would be upset by things such as tv remote not working, shower not very warm, clock radio/alarm not working, no iron in room, etc...then don't stay here. When I asked for an iron they brought me a leaking steam iron and mini ironing board that could only next be used on the bed. However staff was very friendly and helpful when I needed some personal help.

Would not recommend Thu, Nov 19, 2015
The hotel is not good for nothing.. the floors are dirty and broken, the room smelled weird, towels were old and the shower doesn' t work properly .Wifi service does not exist at all in my room including my phone service was cut. The elevator slow and sometimes the hotel staff recommended take the stairs for fear that it can locked. Good location but ver bad hotel...a scam.

Excellent location-Expections match its great rate

Would recommend Thu, May 28, 2015
The staff was terrific. They took amble time addressing every question that I had. The location is absolutely awesome. The hotel is near so many places in Old San Juan. I can't express the value of its location enough. My bedroom layout was awkward but it was clean, which is most important. I did not have access to WiFi in my bedroom. I had to access it outside my room. The television was very difficult to use. It was the cable service that actually made it very difficult to use. The hotel's highest mark is its location. Overall hotel room comfort is fair so plan to spend more time enjoying its surroundings in Old San Juan and less time in this hotel.

Stopover in San Juan

Would recommend Thu, May 21, 2015
This hotel was meant as a stopover, before a flight to Vieques. It wasn't supposed to be fancy. It was supposed to be convenient, inexpensive, and comfortable. It was all of those things. If I flew to Puerto Rico with the hopes of luxury, this is not the place. But if I wanted to go to Puerto Rico, be near the sites, and get value for my money, this can be the place. It was comfortable. The AC was good. The service was friendly. It could be homebase for a great vacation.
