Great stay in San Juan
Great hotel in the heart of San Juan. Would definitely stay here again. If you’re renting a car, parking can be a bit complicated, so would suggest not renting a car if staying here.

Good location & building, but misses on a lot
The hotel has charm in it’s historical architecture and design. Location is great for Old San Juan. However, the rooms felt dirty and in major need of renovation. There was dirt on the walls, the linens didn’t seem fresh, and the power outlets by the bed didn’t work. It’s a 3-star experience at best.
