Good budget choice located central in Condado and close to the beach. Very clean, big rooms with balcony and complimentary breakfast. Shaky wifi but good laundry facilities. Especially I would like to highlight the great and friendly service provided by all staff - made me feel like being home!

Was just looking for somewhere for 1 night after a late arrival into SJ. This ticked all the boxes. Good location - stumbling distance to a few bars etc. Room was basic but clean. Best off all the friendly staff. The guys at reception were really helpful and answered any question, nothing was too much trouble.

We were greeted by an amazing staff and to our surprise by the owner also. He was very friendly and gave us recommendations on dining and shopping. We loved that the rooms were clean and smelt great! Our view was great even though we didn't spend much time in the room. Rates were good and he took care of us!... More

It's a small but friendly Hotel next to the Lagoon. The Hotel does not have parking but has made arrangement with a parking lot close by the Hotel at small cost.. The rooms are clean and well arrange. It 's close by restaurants and about ten minutes from the old city San Juan. They care about details and if something... More

The Canario has been totally redecorated with everything new. (Flat screen tv’s, bathrooms, beds, drapes etc.) This is the best deal... More

It was a lovely hotel, and a perfect place for me to stay. I do not like conservative - corporate hotels. They are the same all over the world. This hotel is a mom and pop hotel, small with the flavor of old Puerto Rico . I came alone and did not know the area. The front desk was very... More

I found the hotel staff to be quite helpful and friendly and felt like I was a member of their family that you look forward to seeing... More

Excellent location! Worth the money. Close to all the best Condado Hotels, beaches, trendy shops, banks, etc. Cant go wrong. I stay there most of times to Puerto Rico. You also have parking. Now, wether is available or not, it is solely to the hotels discretion. But don't worry, there is always parking garages or you may get lucky and... More
