Beautiful Hotel

Would recommend Fri, Jan 9, 2015
We arrived late after a delayed flight into San Juan and was met by a welcoming gentleman, Mark, who was filling in for the receptionist. The hotel itself is beautiful, the rooms look like something from a magazine and we were highly impressed with the many photo opportunities the hotel offered. Mark was extremely helpful and caring and gave good tips on where to go, including to nearby Barrachina for the best pina coladas. Possibly the only letdown is the quality of the breakfast which was rather basic, although the fact that it was so prettily presented on a silver tray perhaps made up for the lack of a hearty meal!

Shopping hint

The hotel is in Old San Juan and you can walk everywhere on the pretty cobbled streets where you will find lots of boutique shops. There is a night market nearby and the pier where we boarded our ship is a 10-15 min walk.

Very nice Hotel!

Would recommend Tue, Dec 23, 2014
This hotel located in a very quiet and nice area of old San Juan, almost next to Governor house. It is a very safe and pleasant place. Not far from old castle and inner harbor - you can walk there. Staff of the hotel is very friendly. Hotel it self represent a local style in regards of interior design. Might not be 100 appealing but it is comfy and nice. It has a pretty patio on the roof or top floor. Entrance is a bit small from outside so it is easy to miss. No near by parking is available and I would not recommend to rent a car for old San Juan.

Dining

Don't rent a car for staying in Old San Juan. It is very compact and parking is a problem. If you want a loud fun place to stay - try to rent near commercial ship port - there are a lot of restaurants. If you like quiet place - rent closer to old castle that located at entrance of San Juan harbor.

Very Nice, Cultural Experience

Would recommend Mon, Dec 8, 2014
This hotel was PERFECT for what we were looking for. A hotel in Old San Juan convenient to walking around the area, walking distance to catch the ferry to Bacardi Factory, close to shopping, bars, restaurants, taxi's, etc. It's a classic establishment that looks like it was converted into a hotel...not very big, but very nice. Rooms are comfortable, each have the bed, bathroom, couch/lounge area, etc. Don't come expecting to walk into a 5-star resort....but it's very comfortable and serene if you'd like a LOCAL place to stay that doesn't break the bank.

High quality service at a beautiful intimate hotel!

Would recommend Fri, Sep 12, 2014
We had an amazing experience at Villa Harencia! The service was amazing and the staff was very accomadating and assisted with any question. The location was in the heart of Old San Juan. We loved that this small hotel was only 8 rooms. Therefore, it was soooo quiet. The rooms were so beautifel! I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Take a step back in history

Would recommend Wed, Sep 3, 2014
The hotel is beautiful and feels steeped in history. The rooms are beautiful and have that old world feel (place was a home for the nuns). The beds are comfortable, bathrooms are modern. Location is amazing. The other amenities are no frill. There were mosquitos, which appears to be a San Juan issue, but the open air hallway I think magnifies it. But the hotel has repellant available.

Can't beat this location

Would recommend Mon, Jun 2, 2014
My wife and I stayed only one night at the Villa Herencia Hotel but we would have gladly stayed longer if possible. We got into San Juan a day before our cruise departed and wanted to get some time in there before the cruise. Most of the hotels were booked by the time we looked for rooms because of the cruise and other people with the same idea so I was surprised such a great hotel was still available when we booked. The room was much more spacious than I expected and very clean and comfortable. Best of all, it was directly in the center of Old San Juan and walking distance to everything that it has to offer. If you're staying in Old San Juan and are looking to experience this particular part of Puerto Rico, definitely give Villa Herencia a look. You will not be disappointed.

Money saver

The restaurants in Old San Juan are a little pricey but a short walk to the water reveals various food trucks that are cheap and delicious with a good deal of variety. If you're not insistent on a sit-down meal, give these trucks a try.

Hidden Gem in Old San Juan

Would recommend Wed, Jan 2, 2013
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.

PERFECT Location!

Would recommend Tue, Aug 21, 2012
If you want the REAL genuine, authentic Old San Juan experience you will enjoy Villa Herencia! It is a quick relaxing walk from everything you want to enjoy on a vacation. Lovely, charming and quaint. Maria and her staff will try their best to accommodate you-super gracious! Great place for a honeymoon, anniversary, birthday or any celebration. The water is wram/tepid throughout the island-so no steamy hot showers anywhere! *OSJ is a cat colony so if you are allergic to cats bring your Benedril!
