I was originally suppose to stay one night at the Casablanca but I ended up adding an extra night prior to my arrival. The hotel was clean, the reception and staff were quite friendly and helpful. I had a basic room, it was a bit small but being in Old San Juan, I didn't want to stay in my room all day anyway so it suited well. My issue was the first night, which was a Thursday night, at 2 am a bunch of clients were partying it up in the cafe/bar area of the hotel (they had their own alcohol) and they decided that they should start singing out loud and playing guitar... it lasted for over 30 minutes and it was quite annoying... the second night (Friday), no such events so that was better. Aside of that I did enjoy the rooftop patio... it was nice sitting in the tup and relaxing. Again, it was clean, well located, (no lift tho, so people with mobility issue should avoid), friendly staff... con: small rooms, no lift...
