The staff was super friendly!

Super helpful & friendly staff. Great area, eclectic & vintage hotel property

I cannot say enough how absolutely AMAZING the El Colonial and ALL the employees were! We were there for my son's wedding and treated like Queens. Thank you all for being so awesome!!!!!

I loved staying at El Colonial! As a single woman, I loved being in the center of OSJ, appreciated feeling safe, and liked knowing that the staff was always available, 24/7 - as was the bar, heyooo. The rooms are plain, but functional, and it's easy and fun to meet people in the lobby. I had a great time talking with other travelers. The rooftop tubs are neat substitutes for a pool (not the same, but pleasant to cool off in). Thanks a lot to Hector, Giancarlo, and Christian for being so great! They are just three representatives of the amazing staff. A hint: use Uber to get to the hotel (it's a better deal than taxis), and back to the airport (leave from the nearby Plaza).

The property has a great chick and quaint ambient.

Amazing staff and service. They go above and beyond every single time. If you have trouble with going up and down steps that is the only reason you shouldn’t stay. Open bar and the friendliest people. Will definitely stay next time again.

Had a lovely time.

We very much enjoyed our stay at el colonial. The staff was very friendly and always ready to help and serve us. The hotel is within walking distance of many restaurants/stores, plazas, and historic sites. The rooftop area and bar/ lobby areas were very nice as well. Our room was quite small, but it did the job for the 3 days we were there.

A hidden gem in the heart of Old San Juan. Hotel staff is incredible! Highly recommend this property.

Lovely place

The staff was genuinely welcoming and did everything to make us feel at home.

The staff was amazing and took care of everything we needed. They also had excellent recommendations for food and activities in the area. A real jewel in the heart of Old San Juan!

Everyone was so nice and helpful!

Excellent location. Superb customer service. Free open bar is a plus.

Giancarlo and Joshua were extremely helpful and explained everything in much detail. Very pleased staying at El Colonial hotel

Pro: People are friendly, and we like the bar. Con: shower had no hot water at the first, but was fixed later.

Extra care in service. The staff went beyond expectations at every level.

Absolutely the service and people here!!!!
