This hotel was founded in 1890 and according to the gentleman in front desk it is the oldest one still in business in Puerto Rico. From the moment I entered the facility to ask for the parking lot to check out time service and attentions from all the staff were incredible. Once inside it's time to travel back in time... More

Its ok..I was there for a night and I am not a big fan. A lot of bars around the area. The place is a bit too old and the room is too small.Ponce is a beautiful city but there are better hotels around the area.

Great experience at the historic Hotel Meliá Ponce. I definitely recommend this hotel if you are planning to explore the historic district of Ponce. Upon arriving I was greeted by an amazing staff. My room was very clean and cozy. Wonderful getaway and would definitely return!!! Hope it will be soon.

This is a beautiful historic hotel in the center of Ponce. But don't expect luxury, this is the hotel for you if you want to be in a genuinely Puerto Rican hotel, in the historical area of Ponce.

If you like to stay at the center of a city that is centuries old, This is the place to stay. The service was very good and the view of the Castle and Cross is great! Although Mark's Restaurant closed there are other easy access restaurants like Lola's. Excellent food!

The hotel is one of the oldest on the island...and it shows. It has that nice touch of old glamour but I couldn't help but feel that the property was rather dated. The lobby is very elegant, the elevator very small (think European) where 2 thin people with 2 bags can fit comfortably (and in regards to the elevator, do... More
