    Quiet, Convenient Boutique Inn in Old San Juan

    This was a lovely property! We were steps from the cathedral, great shopping, cool bars, and open air restaurants... all while seemingly tucked away down a side street near the Old San Juan Paseo, which scenically links to El Morro. Our bed was super comfy and the AC worked perfectly- all important in PR! Staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating. It helps to check in before 5. There and a a lovely veranda where you can eat and gaze down the calleta (up at the cathedral). I simply cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Will definitely stay here again the next time in OSJ,

    You pay for beauty without amenities

    The floors in the room were dirty. It was basically self service. I used a code to get in and retrieve my room key. I never actually saw a worker. No coffee on site, no cleaning of the room during the stay, or fresh towels for the next day. That aside the decor was very nice

    Excellent authentic Old Town hotel with style

    Beautiful hotel. Very nice room and luxurious bed. Authentic feel with beautiful roof top open-air patio. Very convenient area in the heart of old town. The front desk attendant Miguel was very personable and knowledgeable. We would stay here again on future trips to Puerto Rico.

    Magnificent historical building in the heart of Old San Juan, perfect place to stay. One must like cats, they are everywhere. Not a nuisance though.

    The room we stayed in downstairs was amazing. It felt so comfortable, loved the bed decor and chandelier. It was very classy and affordable. My favorite place we stayed there. Has a nice roof top hang out and so close to everything. That’s where I’ll be staying from now on.

    Great historic small hotel, would stay again.

    Really lovely hotel, one of our favorites. Nice location very close to lots of shops and restaurants, but the street itself is mostly quiet. Very nice common areas in the converted historic home, hot tub seemed new and clean. Room was pretty small, but bed was perhaps the most comfortable hotel bed I've slept in. Staff was very nice.

    It’s a beautiful villa in a historical and visually aesthetic part of town. The weekends are full of cheerful visitors. The rest of the week is quiet with friendly locals. The views are wonderful. I would definitely go back.
