We booked El Canario solely because we planned to stay out late on the last night of the San Sebastian Festival and had an early morning flight the next day - we knew we'd only be in the room for a few hours. For what we required, it was fine. The room was extremely small and bare bones, but it... More

On booking.com this hotel is listed as "El Canario Boutique Hotel", while here on Trip Advisor it is listed as "El Canario Inn"...now it all makes sense. The positives about this place include its location - in the middle of the "Miami Beach" area of San Juan (if that is your thing) - and the fact that our room had... More

My wife and I spend five nights in Canario Boutique Hotel, This was probably a low season for PR, we arrived next day after Thanksgiving (end of November for non US people). Hotel was quiet. Everything was as advertised. Boutique lobby, relatively small/clean room. Common kitchen area (you can use refrigerator, put food in the bag, and write your name/room/date... More

El Canario is the best value in the Condado section of San Juan. Short walk to the beach, many restaurants nearby. You can enter the beach through the Marriott next door, where there is a beach bar and a pool. This hotel has a common kitchen that serves coffee & pastry. You can cook there and use the shared refrigerator.... More

Charming exterior and lobby. Feels more like backpackerslodge when there. Little effort in room, no effort in breakfast (bread but only jam to put on).. Like the look and their plants and staff fine. Shame as could be much nicer if someone had made a little effort.

My friend and I had booked through a third party website one week prior to our arrival in San Juan. We were sure disappointed when we reached the hotel late in the afternoon and were told we'd been overbooked. Without even giving us an option, we were walked down the street to a very low-end, budget hotel with paper thin... More

they were having electricity problems, no air conditioner and no parking. Since it was a false advertisement we decided to inform them and stay at another hotel. We did not check in and we did not stay not even one night. They charged four nights. We made a formal claim with booking.com and with our bank
