The hotel is well situated for easy walking around Ponce, and it has a lovely ambiance. Our room on the third floor facing the courtyard was very small--pretty much just room for a queen bed, a desk, one chair, and a small end table. It also lacked amenities such as a clock, a second night stand, and towels. (There were... More

We prepaid and not only received a great rate ($110/nt for two queen beds and a plaza view) but had a really nice room. Our room, 216, was very large . . . queen beds, two easy chairs, TV, mini refrigerator, balcony overlooking the plaza. Our bathroom had a tub-shower, nice toiletries, hair dryer. Our room was clean and pretty.... More

This is a very old and historic hotel. As such, the rooms and elevator reflect that fact. Despite this the rooms were clean and I had no complaints. In fact, we could not get a room anywhere in Ponce and were jumping for joy when the Front Desk Clerk, Roberto told us that they had just had a late cancellation.... More

This place is well situated but as for the rest it's really old and falling down Our room was horrible. They have not invested in many decades ... Ancient carpet, beds and curtain... I would not go back The restaurant serves good breakfast but it's very slow

Their web site is not a true representation of the quality of their rooms or at least the room they gave me. The elevator dropped at least 6 inches every time you reached your floor. The walls in the bedroom had stains and the furniture was dated. This was not a historical or period decoration. It was flat out old... More

We spent two nights at the Melia in a recently renovated room and enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is located right on the main historic square in Ponce and near several museums. Best to time your trip from mid-week to the weekend when more things are open. The property is definitely showing its age but it has some... More

Oldest hotel in PR----upkeep is an issue. Rooms are being renovated, make sure you get one. We didn't and received a dated room with an AC that was full on or off. However, the lighting was good, the TV worked and the shower and towels were good. The restaurant had a decent breakfast and the staff was pleasant except for... More

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
