This review is about the hotel bar, not the hotel itself. If you have a friend or two with you, ask for a shot called the Lamborghini. You won't regret it. The bartenders are extra friendly... And they really know their stuff.

Just returned from a weekend in San Juan and stayed at this little gem in the heart of old San Juan. All in all a great place if you want to avoid the beach hotels and experience this part of San Juan at its finest. Location; Smack dab in the middle of the historical old San Juan. Easy 10-15 minute... More

From the moment you walk in the door you know you have made the right choice. The friendliness of the staff, especially Joyce Oller, made you feel right at home. The location is unbeatable and the uniqueness of the hotel from the film of Casablanca showing, to the artwork, give you a change from the cookie cutter hotel chains, and... More

I had a high expectation for this place. Location is unbeatable--located right in the downtown area and in a walking distance to both historical forts. All I only need was a taxi from the airport to the hotel to start my journey. Hotel decoration is so beautiful. Though the room is quite small--only 1 king bed, it has everything I... More

This place had a great location in the heart of old San juan. We had a balcony room and we loved it! The room was clean and the hotel had so much personality. We would love to return this location and spend a few more days exploring this town. Great hospitality also!!!

The hotel is beautiful nice antiques threw out the hotel the Resturant inside makes good breakfast. Only thing I didn't like there was no hair dryer in the rooms no cloths iron and the room was a little small. Other then that it was ok. But if u want the old rustic feel this is the place.

Wow we stumbled upon this quaint little boutique hotel while exploring Old San Juan Puerto Rico, and wow what an amazing place! The decor is lovely, the smell intoxicating, and the rooftop has turn of the century, stone tubs! Architecturally interesting, charming, rooms, awesome staff. Although we were staying at another resort, we stole away for a night anyway. Also... More

We stayed here for 4 days. The hotel and room were cute. A nice change from the chain hotels. There were a few things in the room that needed to be fixed up, but nothing major. The ac wasn't super effective and we were on the third floor so it was a bit muggy in the room but not too... More

This is a great place in Old San Juan. Loved the bathtubs on the roof! It's great to go up there at night and see the city lights. This hotel is full of style and character. Our room was super romantic, very clean, and surprisingly bright, given that there was no window (there was a skylight in the shower). Would... More
