My stay at La buena Vida Inn was amazing. The property is really a hidden gem. It was so beautiful and put together. The whole thing was so clean and comfy we really felt at home. There are a lot of dining areas around and it is only a 9 minute drive from the beach. The hotel is pretty much in the middle of San Juan so it is a convenient location for getting around. I will definitely be back my next visit!

4/10 Fair

Really beautiful in pic and aesthetically pleasing at first look but it stops there when you got over it. And I got over it quick! First, right off the bat, NO PARKING!!! I have to circle around gazzillion times to find street parking!!! It looks very modern but function wise sucks big time. I have 2 beds room and only one bed has outlet by the headboard which is inconvenient when charging and using phone & laptop while charging them while in bed. Bathroom, it's cool that it has 2 toilets & 2 showers/stalls but do we need to share our business in there together? Shower stall has no shelf to put my toiletries, so do i put them on the floor while taking a shower? The grout seems like it has abundant mold on it. The shower curtain keeps hitting me while taking a shower. The linens on the bed is dirty; it even has a small blood stain on it. It's 0200 and I can hear guests coming and talking loudly. The lady at the front desk is really nice and it's her first day so that somewhat makes up for it. I will not book in here again!

Hidden gem…
This is a true diamond in the rough. Five minutes walk from beach, bars and great restaurants, in a safe San Juan neighborhood. I worked during the day in the co-working space, which was both quiet and a had strong internet connection. The kitchen area is well equipped and is an unexpected addition. The rooms are clean, thoughtfully decorated, and spacious. All in all 5 out of 5… (TBH I was reticent to leave review because I want to keep this gem hidden ;-))
