Don't expect glamor and glitz at the Hotel El Convento, or a beach view. This little gem of a hotel is all about soaking up the history of old San Juan in a comfortable, quiet (except for the rooms overlooking the bars adjacent to the hotel), and historic setting. Service is quite good, there are three restaurants in house, and the rooms are varied and some are quite unusual and interesting. This is not a cookie cutter place, not a chain, but has so much Puerto Rico personality that I stay here every chance I get. Don't miss it.
