My husband and I just escaped for a few days to Puerto Rico to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We just wanted to find a nice, clean and not to expensive place in downtown San Juan. A place where we don't have to drive anywhere. Hotel Plaza De Armas was it. The room was small but had that European charm... More

An affordable, relatively clean hotel located in the center of Old San Juan. It's a fairly standard hotel, so if you're looking for fancy, try elsewhere, but this is a great option if you're looking for a place to lie your head at a reasonable price in between exploring Old San Juan. Very friendly staff. A note of caution: all... More

This hotel, located right on the Plaza square, is small and unusual. The location is ideal and one can easily walk to restaurants, the habor, and shops. The rooms were clean and functional and the hotel staff was helpful and courteous. For the money it's a great value. I don't think it's really suitable for families, as the rooms are... More

We booked a room with a balcony for 1 night. If you're looking for a sleek, modern hotel, with all the amenities, you might not be satisfied with this choice. But if you're looking for a place to stay for a couple of nights, this hotel offers you a teriffic location, modest, yet clean room with all the basics (comfortable... More

After doing a lot of research on where to stay before leaving on a cruise, I decided to give Hotel Plaza De Armas a try. I was not disappointed; everything that I expected for the money was what I got. The rooms are small, but very clean and this is more important to me than size. The staff was amazing... More

We stay there for two nights (Dec. 6 & 7) before my cruise. It was WELL worth it; room and things were clean. The manager and assistants were friendly. It is in a perfect location for enjoy the night market and walking around Old San Juan.

charming little hotel in the heart of Old San Juan. Perfect stay for the purpose of our mini vacations, to stroll the hidden streets, alleys and corners we haven't visited before. Everything was walking distance. The room was comfortable but nothing fancy. We weren't planning on staying all day in it so for us it was just perfect. The management... More

I absolutely loved this quaint old hotel. It is located close to everything, I did not drive during my two day stay so I walked and walked everywhere. But first I will talk about the hotel, I arrived after dark so I did not see the exterior nor the street and other buildings but I did see the beautiful little... More

This is a historic hotel. It is in a perfect location for walking around old San Juan. It is not a fancy place, but if you want to stay in a funky, clean, classic, old San Juan building on a beautiful square with a decent restaurant on site, this place is for you! What makes this place not just a... More

We stayed here for one night before a cruise and couldn't have been more pleased. The location was perfect...we were able to poke around Old San Juan the next morning before leaving on the cruise. The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The room, while small, was impeccably clean and quiet. Would definitely stay here again.
