Small, dated room but clean. If you want great access to the square in Ponce, and are not too concerned about modern accommodations, this would be a good choice. We enjoyed breakfast in Mocha, the restaurant in the hotel. Staff: courteous. Room: clean Elevator : holds only 2 people! Overall "fair" because 1900 building being held to 2015 standards.

We stayed for a night in January and had a 2 double bed room facing the main square. The room was tiny and outdated, but with a nice balcony facing the main square of Ponce. Bathroom was tiny as well. Air conditioning was noisy. and very strong. We liked the restaurant and bar area on the rooftop. Parking was secure... More

I am a single dad with two kids. I take a short trip every two weeks to a different hotel in the island. (I am a local) Plus side: location to every attraction in Ponce, and the history of the hotel. Night life is good for a small town and is close to bars, and good restaurants. Minus side: the... More

It was terrible!! The valet parking guy scratched my car, the room was filled with cockroaches, my husband killied around 7. We could not sleep at night because we could hear all the music downstairs. It was the worst place i have ever been. Dont waste your money

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
