My husband and I stayed here for three days during our second Puerto Rico tour from England. The hotel is conveniently located just off of the main square, literally a stones throw from the Parque de Bombas. There was a gated and attendant controlled parking area at the rear of the hotel (not sign posted but a local vagrant pointed... More

I spent three days and two nights at the Hotel. It was a very nice experience. The Hotel has been renovated with a nice lounge with music at the very top of the building. Beautiful view, good service, nice and we'll decorated place. It's a good place to stay to know the south coast of PR. Ponce is a beautiful... More

I agree with most of the other reviewers' comments, but I still had a great time. Yeah, the hotel is dated, but it served my needs and the location was perfect. Its only a few steps from the historic central square, and during Carnival, that's a big advantage...unless you're trying to sleep before midnight. The staff was very helpful and... More

We were disappointed. This was one of the pricier hotels on our trip but turned out to be a disappointment. The lobby was wonderful but the room was below par. I understand its a older hotel but thats no excuse for below average maintenance and upkeep. Initially we got a room with the toilet flush broken and no towels. I... More

I can't say enough about the positive, helpful, fun treatment we received from the hotel front desk during our stay...during Carnival. Everything was really, really busy but Roberto Ubides took time to help us figure out a difficult departure issue. He made our trip memorable...thanks.

Run down, we upgraded and found the room to be average at best, renovated but small, not what you would expect for a $50.00 upgrade. Wi Fi not working for first 24 hours of stay. No coffee in the morning.

We stayed for 2 nights during Ponce Carnival. The room was clean and very comfortable. The location was perfect for the Carnival. It's a half block to the famous firehouse and park. The staff was very helpful. They have a small breakfast place and a Sky Top restaurant which offers great panoramic views of the city. Next time I stay... More

We didint had to get in the car to go the stores, restaurant plaza del mercado and enjoy activities and share... More
