Older hotel with some nice updates... managed to get a suite last minute for $99/night by walking in! Steamroom/rain shower was lovely. Comfy bed and free breakfast were also appreciated. As was the fact that we could walk everywhere we wanted to go in old San Juan! :) Would absolutely recommend.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights prior to joining a cruise from San Juan. The location was great for exploring all that beautiful Old San Juan has to offer. The staff are very friendly and Ana provided us with a map and recommendations of where to go and what to see. We stayed in a junior suite... More

Stayed in a really nice suite here, first night in PR. Staff got us all checked in and showed us to our room. Room was huge with two balconies. Street below has some noise but what would you expect with a great central location. Right in the heart of old San Juan. Had an amazing stay, comfy bed. Spent the... More

Stayed 1 night at Cervantes and the hotel was awesome. The people at this little hotel were so nice and helpful. 2 blocks from the Cruise terminal. Great place to stay. Will stay at this hotel again. :)

Cute, updated rooms. On the small side but all we needed for one evening. Staff was very friendly and full of information. Ana greeted us and made coffee for breakfast that was great. Continental breakfast could have been better, fruit wasn't ripe or appealing. Great location but don't park right across from the hotel, very expensive and no break for... More

We stayed at this hotel the night before a cruise. Really nice place right in the middle of anything you'd want to see in Old San Juan. Our room and bathroom were spotless. No complaints whatsoever. The staff were very friendly from start to finish. I would stay in this hotel again. For the price of the room it can't... More

This hotel is located right at the edge of the the Old City, so everything worth visiting is in walking distance. It may not look like much from the street, but once inside there's a Spanish style to the surroundings, which is emphasised by the lovely interior, high celings and wonderful windows in our huge room (number 9, the suite)....

We stayed in room #12 one night after our cruise! We walked with our luggage to the Cervantes which is only a couple blocks from the Carnival pier. Anyone who has ever been to San Juan can tell you it is HOT! We were tired and hot from the walk over. When we arrived Ana informed us our room would... More

We stayed here for two nights before boarding our cruise in Puerto Rico. The rooms are a good size, the air con was effective, there was a safe in the room and the bathroom was very nice. The breakfast was of a continental style and very good. A good choice for a short stay. There was also free wifi.
