Was in Puerto Rico on business for a whole week. Every other hotel was able to provide an invoice except this one. The restaurant was not as I had heard. Not a pleasant experience for both breakfast and dinner. Too much noise also. Do not recommend.

This was our 5 th time staying here at El Buen Cafe. The attitude of the staff is great. Always asking what can I do for you. We brought our grandkids with us for their 1st visit to Puerto Rico. They loved it and wanted to know if we could move to El Buen Cafe so they could come every... More

This Hotel is in a very good location (if you want to be away from the busy city crowd) and it's very easy to find. It's not very fancy and kinda reminded us of school. It has no eleveators but it makes up with the friendly staff and it's cleanliness. Yes, the beds are made for very short people but... More

We spent one night here as we were going to the Camuy Caves and the Arecibo Observatory the next day. We were given room 109 and at first we thought it was just a box spring on the floor because it was six inches off the floor and so, so, so hard! Nope, it was a mattress, still wrapped in... More

Stayed for two nights on a business trip. It was the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in. The wireless didn't work and when I asked the front desk clerk if there was anything they can do, she said they don't have any technician on the weekends. It was a Sunday so I hoped they will fix the problem the... More

This was a nice, clean place to stay, but it was nothing fancy. I would stay there again because the room was clean, the area seemed safe, and the people at the hotel and cafe across the street were nice. We stayed there on a Wednesday night, and there was a party in the basement. Our room was on the... More

If you are looking for a luxury hotel, this is not it. But if you are looking for a hotel that is a great deal and really friendly staff, this is your place. The hotel is located close to downtown Arecibo. My room was extremely clean and surprisingly spacious. It had a couch, desk and bed. The hotel is small... More
