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

I found this place on trip advisor and decided to try it out for my birthday trip to San Juan. I was delightfully surprised when, as it turned out, they upgraded me to the "KING ROOM" on the second floor. The room was small but beautifully furnished, and the bathroom was tiled from floor to ceiling with Marble! The best... More

We generally visit Old San Juan once a year to visit the museums, galleries and to eat in a couple favorite restaurants. On our most recent trip we spent a couple nights in the Villa Herencia and were completely charmed. The location is perfect on a quiet street across from the cathedral and near all the shopping and museums without... More

My husband and I stayed here one night before a cruise out of San Juan. We had originally booked another hotel. The night before our trip, we received an email from that hotel saying they had closed, but that Villa Herencia would honor our reservation at the originally booked price which was less than the Villa Herencia rate. When we... More
