The property is okay. Nothing extraordinary, but okay. Nicer accommodations can be made for less money. We encountered zero staff, just the 3 combination locked doors/gates. It made if feel like you weren't in a safe part of town, though we never felt unsafe. It is rather loud at night. There seemed to always be people hollering and partying until 1-2 am.

It is very nice located, in downtown Viejo San Juan. The apartment is clean and has all you need but is kinda small

Just perfect for a couple, table in the courtyard garden. Small room, but wonderful- safe, clean, comfortable and in the right location for Old San Juan. Our family will visit in the future. Walking distance- well right in the heart of all that happens - location was perfect!

In heart of old San Juan
Very well located in old San Juan. Clean and comfortable bed. No hot water at bath sink and instructions were to put toilet paper in wastebasket rather than toilet.
