stylish hotel at a great location

The hotel is located right in front of Plaza De Armos. Parking is not included but available in south old San Juan. Overall positive experience.

Great smaller hotel

I stayed here after returning from a cruise so we could check out Old San Juan. This hotel was perfect for the price. It was a clean place to stay and allowed us to keep our bags there until check in. This is not a huge name brand hotel so dont expect all the fancy things. But this was a very clean place with great accomodations. I would stay here again!

Get what you pay for.....

For what I needed the hotel worked fine. I had a king room with windows that faced the street. My only recommendation to anyone staying in one of these rooms is to bring ear plugs because it is true what other have stated about the delivery trucks outside the hotel at 4am. If you like to sleep, then get one of the interior rooms with no windows. The wifi worked fine in the lobby every time I needed it. If you are someone who is very picky about hotels then I would not recommend this hotel. It provided a decent room (my room had a microwave and small fridge) and nothing else besides the free wifi. The location of the hotel is however central to everything.

good

Great hotel, staff nice and friendly, great location and restaurants near by. The room was too dusty there was dust on floor, tv, bed and tables. Other than that it was great to be so close to the old San Juan.

Hotel Plaza de Armas

This is not a bell and whistle hotel nor is it a family friendly one either. It is just ok. It serves its purpose as being somewhere to sleep. The fact that the rooms have no windows is seriously odd to me. However, the staff is nice and aid you with whatever request that you have and also give great tips. The location of the hotel is also in a great place, in the heart of old San Juan. If you need to take the bus (50c trip) to go somewhere in the city, the bus terminal is a few blocks away. In front of the hotel, there is a trolley stop (which is free) which the tourists usually use cause it go through all of Old San Juan. The hotel also gives out coupons for local restaurants including a free pina colada from La Barranquilla which is where the drink was originally invented. Overall, great bang for your buck as long as you are not looking for a red carpet hotel. And the hotel is clean!

Basic room, central to all the sights of Old San Juan

We booked this hotel room for one night in a pinch. It is set in a utilitarian building, many rooms do not have windows, but just the basics. The room was clean, the AC worked well, and you receive the value of its discounted price. Our room card key often required a dozen swipes to function...These little details matter far less when you realize you are steps from all the shops, cafes, and restaurants Old San Juan has to offer. Park you belongings here and plan to take your vacation to the cobble stone streets.

Find the guy with the shaved ice cart. Ask for Tamarindo and Crema. A little tart a little sweet, you will not be disppointed.
