What a wonderful gem! Pros: romantic decor, great location, amazingly comfortable canopy beds. Even sheltering from the rain instead of exploring doesn't seem so bad in this lovely hotel. Cons: The breakfast is very plain... But then again, for this value, why don't you go explore the lovely little restaurants in the city instead? All in all, a great deal... More

I would call this more of a boutique hotel than a B&B but it could go either way. There are two rooms upstairs and 6 (I think) downstairs. The upstairs rooms are definitely worth it if you can get one. There is a large outdoor patio area upstairs that you can see in some of the pics. Anybody at the... More

I got a chance to stay for the weekend, just this past weekend. The hotel is small, quaint, charming and beautiful. It smells like flowers, at sundown it is candle lit. Small details, like an umbrella in my room, make a difference (it was raining upon my arrival). Located beautifully in historic Old San Juan, I would love to go... More

June 21 2014 we had booked one night post cruise. Taxi took us 1/2 block and you roll luggage down cobblestone street. Interesting historically,old & origionally for sisters from the convent attached. Our room had been flooded & the young lady was so apologetic, she had already booked us a room in the Convento Hotel next door. She met us... More

We stayed for three nights in Villa Herencia during Christmas time, and the hotel was solid booked. The hotel is beautifully decorated in the old style. We booked the suite H9 which is quite spacious. I slept on the sofa in the living room with glass ceiling and saw a cat sitting on the ceiling in the first morning :)... More

We had booked one night at Villa Herencia, this is a small little bed and breakfast located in the heart of Old San Juan. It is a very cute old world style with about 9 or so rooms, off an open air courtyard, we were in room H4 Isabellino, which was right next to the fountain in the courtyard (thankfully... More

We'd never been to San Juan before and booked this strictly based on other reviews, but boy, did we luck out! This hotel is both beautiful--just absolutely stunningly appointed--and wonderfully located, just half a block from the main cathedral in Viejo San Juan. It's right next to the brightly colored escalera de la monjas and--if you look carefully--a couple of... More

My husband booked this at the last minute for my daughter and I. He wanted us in a safe yet convenient location to walk Old San Juan. He knows I love charming boutique hotels and took a chance. We hadn't even seen our room and I texted him a big thank you. Our very best place ever in San Juan.... More

What an awesome little find in Old San Juan! We spent 5 nights before joining a cruise and really loved it. It's close to all the points of interest to be explored around Old San Juan but it didn't take us long to walk to a beach. It's on a quiet little street and has a great rooftop terrace. On... More

We stayed here one night before heading out for a cruise. As the taxi drove us to the hotel, through the quaint and colorful roads of Old Town, our excitement mounted. This is a beautiful and personal boutique, perfectly located to allow for enjoyment of all that Old Town has to offer. The room, a king-size room on the second... More
