I didn't actually stay in Villa Herencia because of a mix-up with the reservation system, but the concierge was exceptionally kind and helpful. He got us a room at another hotel in the area and was just very helpful. It's a beautiful, beautiful place and I wish we could've stayed here!

I honestly couldn't ask for more. Small clean and charming rooms. Listen, this is not the Ritz, thankfully, but a really nice stay with super friendly people that give you a real feel for PR. Roof top terrace and location is awesome. The limited breakfast was just perfect to start your day, everything fresh and fantastic

Stayed for three nights last week. A wonderful, small historical property in the oldest part of Old San Juan very close to the cathedral, San Juan Gate and the El Convento hotel. Our room was quite large enough for the two of us (quaintly furnished with a four-post bed) and the bathroom was well-sized with modern fixtures. The staff were... More

We stayed at Villa Herencia for 5 nights. Our room was charming. We stayed in room h-9. It has ample room to spread out as well as access from the bedroom to the rooftop patio. So pleasant to sit outside after dinner. The staff is very friendly. Our favorite front desk attendant was John....nice as well as helpful young man.... More

Stayed here in early November 2015 for 3 nights in H3 after a cruise. It was a wonderful surprise - room was quaint and perfect for us. Staff was awesome and very accommodating. Breakfast was a real treat and very adequate. Will definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get a real feel of OSJ.... More

Great location and price for Old San Juan and great for its proximity to all the travel destination in the city. The room was very quaint and comfortable. I particularly loved the rustic character of the hotel and the terrace on the top level as well as the way it smelled.

Cannot say enough about the wonderful service at this small boutique hotel in the heart of OSJ. Every person who sat at the front desk was friendly and eager to help with directions, reservations or advice. The rooms were small but romantic with stone walls and a gauze canopy over the bed. For the center of a city, the price... More

We stayed 4 nights in H4, the room is well appointed, be it that it is a little small --something that can't be helped in this type of house. We liked it that the room is on the 1st floor, but inside the room you have to go up a few steps to go to the bathroom. The beds are... More

Small boutique hotel located at the best possible location in OSJ. Close to great restaurants and El Morro. The room was clean and was up to the expectations, and breakfast was basic and good. Wifi did not work for us. The hotel host (Jonathan) was very friendly and helped us a lot with the things to do and places to... More

Villa Herrencia is in an incredible old house with multiple courtyards and beautiful common rooms. It is close to the city gate in the nicest part of old San Juan, on a narrow cobblestone street, close to myriad restaurants and shops. The folks at VH were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was OK. Our room was pretty small but very... More
