We stayed here for a night before leaving on a cruise and loved the location. Right across the street from several nice eateries, and convenience shopping. It was a short cab ride to forts in Old Town. The hotel itself is older and the rooms are small, but we were very comfortable. We had 2 rooms for a family of... More

This place should be a hostel as it resembles one. My fiancé and I stayed here three days to spend the weekend in San Juan. We aren't picky but the bathroom was tiny, maybe 10 feet long and 3 1/2 feet wide for a toilet, a sink, and a standup shower. It was an odd set up since the toilet... More

Its an inexpensive place to stay the night, have breakfast (free) and leave. If you are thinking of staying in, this is not the place. Although it is reasonally well maintained, there is no view, no pool, no parking, no bar. Basically nothing to do. Sleep, eat, and go!

When I relocated to San Juan for work, I stayed here on my first night before moving in to my apartment. The location is in the heart of all the action, yet I could not hear it from my cozy room. The AC was cold and the service was great. I would recommend this place to people vacationing in San... More

I liked this place a lot. I don't understand the other bad reviews. All the guests I talked to, I'm a very social person, seemed very happy with the place. I thought the staff was very nice & helpful. It's a great location where you can walk anywhere. It's very safe & clean. I liked it & will stay again... More

Great people, comfortable, quiet without all the craziness of large families little kids. They treated me great! It's a block from the beach and walking distance to everything. I would definitely stay again! The walk to the room was private, beds are super comfortable and the ac blows super cold

Where to start. Photos online looked nice, authentically Spanish, non-corporate chain. Reception fine but steps leading up to lobby and to rooms. Booked the 'deluxe king-size room'. Once out of the lobby area, the corridors to rooms looked like a cheap hostel, walls decorated with cheap woodchip paper and doors to rooms just paper thin. Our door didn't open very... More

We stayed at El Canario by the Lagoon prior to leaving on our cruise and had a great time, however we booked El Canario Inn after the cruise, and expected that it would be a similar stay. However upon arriving and realizing that there was no lift, and having to carry all our luggage up three flights of stairs to... More
