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

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
