“Great choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We were recently in San Juan for a conference at the convention center so location was important to us. The Miramar was about a 15 min walk to the convention center, close to several restaurants and a grocery store and a beach so the location was great. The staff at the hotel was very helpful in giving directions and information. The rooms were large, and even had safes, fridges, and microwaves. The only negative was the water in the shower became cool after the first person showered, no more warm/hot water for a while. The service in the restaurant was extremely slow but we soon realized that this is the norm in San Juan. We had a lot of slow food service but the food was good. They even allowed us to store luggage before we checked in and again after we checked out. Overall this is a great option for being close to the convention center but cheaper than the big name hotels.

Very nice hotel, close to Condado beach and San Juan beach.0-15 min walk. Close to conventioncentere.
Nice room, clean with frigde and microwave. Very friendly at the reception. Breakfast very simple if included. Every day the same choice. But this was no problem for the 4 nights we stayed there.
Very close to the public bus to Old San Juan, just 0.75 ct for the ride.
Roof terrace has a nice view, with chairs.

Had a wonderful stay proir to boarding a cruise in San Juan. The location was wonderful to get around and close to the cruise ports. The service at the hotel was wonderful. Walter went over and above to make for a comfortable stay. He was helpful even prior to getting there as I called for assistance a week prior to starting the vacation. This hotel rocks because of great people like Walter doing everything possible for an enjoyable stay.

Stayed at the Miramar the night before our cruise. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, eager to please and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was very large and clean with good facilities e.g. a microwave, fridge, safe. The view from the roof terrace is amazing. Very close to the port if you are going on a cruise. There is a supermarket a few minutes walk away which was handy. Would stay again if cruising.

Room Tip: Ask for a view out to sea.

This is the second time that I've stayed at Hotel Miramar. It's affordable and the staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and the view from the rooftop is fantastic. The hotel is only 10 minutes away from the beach. It's close to Old San Juan and Condado. There is also a great restaurant across the street called Casita MiraMar and next to the hotel. You can park your car rental at the hotel's parking space in the back. They will park it for you.

We were at The Miramar and can repeat what most people have said about Walter (and everyone else) being helpful. Ditto the rooms being clean and the view from the roof. The PCs were free and was hardly used by anyone else. I don't think that we heard another guest while we were in our room. The buses that go to old San Juan are cheap and about every 8 minutes during the week. At the bus station you can get various free coaches to most of the small city. Puerto Rico claims to have the happiest population in the world - we never got any form of grumbling from anyone when we asked endless stupid tourist questions.
The best thing about Hotel Miramar is the location. Anyone who thinks that it is in a slum district is a snob! There is a cafe slightly to the right, on the other side of the road which appears to be open 24 hours a day. Not only does it have relatively cheap breakfasts with brilliant coffee, but it was also possible to have a decent, three course dinner there for about $20. If you turn right out of the hotel, and then go up the road by the side of the church there is a really good Puerto Rico eatery. It may be only open for about four evenings a week, and when you do order it might take about half an hour for your food to appear, but it is worth it. By comparrison we went to the hotel district of San Juan on the other side of the lagoon for the day. There was no local, cheap, supermarket and eating out was strictly American fast-food chains or relatively expensive local food. Casa Lola provided very tasty, authentic food, but it was quite expensive. The Miramar equivalent was cheaper, had far bigger portions and appeared to be packed out with locals. If there were any complaints about the hotel it was that the TV kept breaking down and there isn't really much room to put your clothes (latter point not made by me) although these are hardly reasons to ignore the numerous benefits that Hotel Miramar offers.
