The hotel was clean; the king bed comfortable; the air conditioning and WiFi worked well. It was a good budget hotel for the money. But, the rooms are small; the bathroom needs updating; the hall carpet is shabby; you have to carry your own luggage up and down the stairs. The staff is helpful and there is always ice water...

This hotel has a great value for the location, that is a trendy part of the city with lot of night buzz. The region doesn't have too much small hotels, so if you son't want to stay in these big and sometimes expensives hotels, this is a good option. Also it is close to the port, which is good for...

My husband and I booked this hotel for July 2013 to celebrate our four year anniversary. We enjoyed the fact that this hotel wasn't terribly costly and was right in the middle of the shops and restaurants in downtown San Juan. While the rooms were not super luxurious, they were clean and perfectly suited our needs. The breakfast patio and... More

This small inn took me for a wonderful surprise. My initial impression of the 'too small' room was quickly dispelled by the friendly staff, attentive service, great location, and overall ambiance. This little gem has been here for many years, tucked in among the glitzy mega-hotels. While it lacks the amenities of a large hotel, I did not miss them.... More

Used this hotel the night before a cruise out of San Juan and didn't want to pay "resort" prices for an 18 hour stay. The place is old and kind of run down. Wifi works well, which is the best thing you can say about it. Small, cramped rooms and the "breakfast" is a few rolls, cereal, and a pot... More

The receptionist was AMAZING my friend and I didn't have a clue what to do when we were to arrive in Puerto Rico. The receptionist helped up out with EVERYTHING her name was Aida and she booked everything for us. Seriously one of the nicest most caring people I've meet while staying at the Canario boutique My best-friend and I... More

Stayed 1 night after a cruise. It is located in a safe area, although I don't know why there seemed to be 2-3 police hanging out quite often. The room was adequate and clean, but nothing special. The courtyard outside was a convenient place to sit at a table and have a cocktail before heading out to dinner. The location... More

We stayed here because we had a 16 hour layover on our way to Dominica. The hotel is so cute and charming from the outside, and in the lobby area. Dark woods, brightly colored tiles. The rooms are totally no frills. Small, window with view of a building, no alarm clock, just enough room to walk around the bed. A/C... More

This was a quaint boutique that was affordable, yet the rooms were clean and comfortable. I don't think you can call out on the phones in the room, but you can receive calls. The staff is helpful and there is a light continental breakfast. A cab ride was necessary to get too Old San Juan and the markets, so this... More
