This hotel has a perfect location at the heart of San Juan. I'm afraid the praise must end there. Upon arriving we were greeted by what I can only describe as a frantic and unprepared staff, as if they didn't expect there to be guests. That is likely why our room was not ready, despite arriving 4 hours after the... More

This hotel is located to the heart of Old San Juan. A problem is with parking. Hotel has not parking area, but cheap parking house is not far. Stuff is very friend and pleasure (namely Anna). Room is large for two people. For four people too, but second bed is a sofa. Continental breakfast is fine.

We wanted to love this hotel having gone to great lengths to find the perfect location for our next trip to San Juan but from the moment we arrived it was a nightmare. Checking in at 4:00 pm we hauled all of our luggage by ourselves up to the Cervantes Suite as the elevator was not working, only to find... More

We stayed 1 night, prior to our CCL Valor Cruise out of San Juan. It’s in a very good location, leaving you with a nice, short, downhill walk to pull your luggage to the ship for boarding. The staff were all super friendly. Check-in was fast, then they will walk you up to your room. There were 6 of us,... More

We have spent many a night at hotels in San Juan, including in OSJ, but last week, New Year's Eve to be exact, we spent the night at the Chateau Cervantes. We were not disappointed and are looking forward to returning in the near future. The location, of course, is very convenient, but fortunately, that's not the only plus to... More

We had a junior suite, plenty of room with a nice bathroom all very clean and comfortable. Could have done without the plug-in deodorizer. Staff were great, attentive and helpful. Continental breakfast was uninspiring! Location in old San Juan is perfect for getting to know this delightful city. Our first night was really noisy with party goers and trash collectors.... More

Although our room was tight by today's standards this boutique hotel was charming and accommo- dating. The coffee was the best, puerto-rican style. The breakfast was nice, no eggs nor pancakes but it had style. The location was great, easy to catch the free trolley with many nearby restaurants and sights of old San Juan. Walked to the ferry to... More

We were in a junior suite for 1 night. Jose checked us in and was pleasant, professional and walked us to our room on the 3rd floor. The room had a electrical outlet plug in deodorizer which smelled awful. The room was large with a small bathroom without a tub. The shower head had good water pressure. Toiletries were provided....

Clean, comfortable rooms that had wonderfully tall ceilings, made the room feel spacious despite it's smaller size. Great friendly reception, breakfast was a poor bust as I am gf and it was all about the bread and pastries.

This is a hotel with two faces, and given the great reviews we read online, we expected more. Unfortunately, the negatives outweighed the positives for us. On the upside, when we checked in we were greeted by a very friendly, enthusiastic desk person. She was efficient, asking if we wanted a wake-up call (we did) and noting that we needed... More
