Herencia Hotel San Juan

Visited San Juan. Stayed at the Herencia Hotel, next door to El Convento. Great staff and location. Could use a small refridgerator in the room. I would definitely stay there again.

a beautiful stay in san juan viejo

casa herencia is a beautiful private getaway in san juan...it is located in a quiet part of san juan where you can see the beauty of the city.... very close to historical buildings and entry way to the wall around the city. casa herencia is your basic necessities..bed,shower etc but the hacienda itself is beautifully preserved and adds to its charm....

Unbeatable location for the price

The La Herencia was absolutely charming for a romantic stay for a couple. It was located right in the center of Old San Juan, across the street from the National Cathedral, and everything was within walking distance. In fact, we walked to the cruise ship pier with our luggage in tow. The hotel is 300 years old, with the rooms opening into a courtyard with a fountain. The rooms are small, but adorable, and clean. A nice breakfast was included, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only reason I did not give a 5 is that they did not have hair dryers, or washcloths. But this was so much more fun than staying in a standard hotel room.

Interesting, quaint hotel

Very pretty, unusual hotel. Could use some rugs in the room as the tile floor is cold. Very damp. Pretty, just don't expect a room like a Marriott or Hilton....much more unique. Staff were great.

Beautiful boutique hotel

The design of this small hotel is very chic. Very memorable. The room (H4) was small but who spends much time in their room while in San Juan? The location couldn't be any better, next to the City Gate. Fabulous place.

If you have a car, the best parking deck is Dona Fela on Recinto Sur. $1.25 an hour and only $4 from 6 pm to 6 am. Parking spots on the street is hard to find.

Hidden Gem in Old San Juan

When booking hotels, I typically look for brand name hotels because you almost know what to expect. However, I decided to take a risk based on reviews I read for the Villa Herencia and booked this hotel for 3 nights. Words cannot express how pleasantly surprised I was upon arrival. This old convent turned boutique hotel was super cute, clean, close to everything and the staff were insanely friendly and amazingly helpful. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a small, intimate hotel close to everything Old San Juan has to offer.

Culturistic Hotel

Great looking old hotel, if you like taking in the culture then this is one of the places you might want to stay the night at. They are just finishing up a roof top bathtub like their sister hotel la casablanca which was amazing.

Wonderful Experience

This Hotel was wonderful. Very charming and beautiful, it felt like being in Europe. The courtyard did get a little noisy at times but for us it did not diminish the experience at all. I would gladly return. The Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, but I think the hotel is new so the taxi drivers did not really know where to go and the number provided goes to a sister hotel across town. Might be a good idea to have the directions printed out beofre you go, but the extra preperation is well worth it.

spanish feel

We were in the heart of the Old San Juan and we walked everywhere. The room was rather small but it has an authentic Old Spanish home feel. The patio was really beautiful and the bed was comfortable enough for two. 4/5 experience. It was nice.
