I stayed here for two days prior to a cruise from San Juan. You can't beat the price and the location! Hotel Belgica is an older hotel full of character and in the center of town, within walking distance to a lot of museums, restaurants and bars. My room was large with a comfortable bed, mini fridge, and a huge... More

Perfect location. Beautiful old hotel with high ceilings. Very comfortable. Friendly staff. OK breakfast. We were in Ponce for 2 nights, Wednesday and Thursday. It was very quiet. Many restaurants closed. We ran out of things to do. I imagine it would be busier on the weekend.

Highlights: 1. Well located off of Fuentes de los leones and Parque de Bombas 2. Spacious rooms with cathedral ceiling (big plus) 3. Sleep quite well given the room was very dark at night and conducive to good sleep (room #215) 4. Expeditious check in and very friendly staff 5. Be aware that breakfast on morning I was there was...

Room with balcony overlooking noisy street. Tall wood shuttered doors without glass nor other sound insulation from street hammering, honking cars below. No hot water. Charming room, but not good sleep quality.

My group had two rooms at the back of the second floor, with small windows that looked onto a terrace. The rooms were clean; the bed was small but comfortable. The shower water takes a while to heat up since they use solar. Friendly staff gave us some advice about where to eat and drink. Luckily there was a band... More

Very friendly staff and an unbeatable location, as long as you are not looking for a beach. Rooms towards the street can be very very noisy, but inside rooms are not. On the other hand, the inside rooms tend not to have windows. The hotel could do with a refurb but it is totally ok to sleep in. Bring mosquito... More

Hotel Belgica is right in the center of Ponce. Within walking distance of creole restaurants, shopping, and tourist attractions. The staff is very friendly and informative. Breakfast is light but included and free parking is three blocks down. If you're looking for a hotel that has uniqueness and character, consider Hotel Belgica.

I still remember how nice this place is. The foyer is beautiful. The room was nice and clean. It is centrally located in the heart of Ponce. However, parking is not available for which guests are directed to the city parking, which is safe and within walking distance. The only drawback: I was awake by loud music from a club... More

I read the reviews here before staying at the hotel. Therefore, I was prepared. Mine was a large room, with large bed, and high ceilings -- overlooking the street. Prepared means I brought earplugs, which frankly the hotel should issue with these rooms. With the earplugs, all was fine. No earplugs + street facing room = no sleep.
