This hotel is in a historical building. There is no elevator and no pool or fitness center. There are five bath tubs on the roof terrace which is six flights up and a good workout. That being said the free trolley can drop you off right in front of a nice beach (no lifeguards) that is perfect for cooling off.... More

We stayed here for two nights before leaving on a cruise out of San Juan. The hotel was booked based on Trip Advisor reviews so I figured I should leave my own review. Let's start with the caveat 1. No elevator. This is published everywhere so it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. I didn't have a problem with moving... More

Reasonable value and good location. Wifi in room alright. No lift. Simple and clean. Friendly and helpful staff with an exception : had an early flight and had been told taxis were easily called from nearby taxi stand. As it turned out, I was made to wait for a taxi driver friend of the receptionist for 25 minutes (already pressed... More

Dear Exphilip, Thank you so much for leaving feedback on your stay with us! We are so sorry you have left Puerto Rico with a bad experience or several with taxi drivers in the Island. That morning it was specially tricky because it was Iron Man Puerto Rico and main arteries were closed since 4am in Old San Juan/Condado area.... More

A friend and I stayed for two nights before a cruise to the Caribbean, and it was just delightful. Very nicely decorated lobby/restaurant/bar area, and, as you would expect, it's like you just walked into a Humphrey Bogart movie. Very friendly and helpful staff. The room was comfortable, clean and had all the amenities you would expect, including great air-conditioning... More

Casablanca hotel is amazing! My room was the perfect size for two. The stairs can be a little annoying but will definitely help burn some calories. The breakfast in the hotel is quite delicious and their freshly squeezed orange juice was everything. The location is perfect. It's so close to everything. The guys at the front desk were fantastic. They... More

The hotel is in a great location and was a key reason we chose it. The location did not disappoint. The rooms are small but perfectly adequate. There is no elevator but that was fine with us. There was construction on the street in front of the hotel when we were there so we requested the quietest room they had.... More

Hello Sarah, Thank you so much for your review! We held a fundraising event Sunday October 27, 2013 in the afternoon as a one time event to help raise funds for Puertorrican dancers to compete internationally. We thought it would be a good idea since it was the International Salsa Congress in Puerto Rico, however, this is not on schedule... More

When I walked into the lobby, I was pleasantly surprised by the charming bohemian vibe – colorful, playful and artsy. However, as my stay progressed, my enthusiasm dimmed, starting with the climb up five flights of stairs to get to my room. The room itself was disappointingly bland, lacking the appeal of the lobby, but not really a big negative.... More

Hello Patti, Thank you so much for bringing this very important issue to our attention!

This happens to be the only room with that type of... More

Thanks to the previous people who posted their reviews it helped me find a real jewel. The hotel was charming and the staff was wonderful. I would like to let future travelers know that there is construction in the area that does not allow you to get near the hotel at the time of this posting. We had to circle... More

This hotel is nicely located in the center of Old San Juan and makes it easy to walk to all of the tourist attractions - forts, cathedral, museums, etc. The hotel is in an old building and is decorated with a variety of art that...

The hotel is beautiful . It's centrally located and makes it easy to get to the other shops and sights. The room was clean and tastefully decorated. I would recommend it to my friends. The stairs maybe just a disadvantage for some.
