“Perfect for us!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This small, boutique hotel was much more to our liking than one of the big resort hotels would have been. The location is close to the beach, restaurants, and shopping and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The premises are simple and lovely, and our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was adequate, and we really loved the always-available coffee and fruit juices. Don't count on the free parking--the four spaces were usually occupied, but we were able to find street parking after lots of hunting. We would definitely stay here again if we ever make a return trip to Puerto Rico, which we loved.

I stayed at this hotel about a year ago and decided to write a review now since a friend of mine asked for some hotel recommendations in San Juan.

This hotel was perfect for me and my Boyfriend. It was quaint, small and friendly. The location was great and the staff were very nice and accommodating.

As others noted, location is very good--2 blocks from beach, but without the high prices of the beachfront hotels. Room was fine, nothing special, but clean and comfortable. Parking complaints of others are justified: only 4-5 small spots (the number changes with the location of the flower pots), so you should resign yourself to paying $13/day at the lot a block away. Not too bad for me, but single women might feel uncomfortable making that walk at night, although that area is crawling with police. Good continental breakfast, a little better than what you usually find in the states (includes meat, which I guess is a European thing). Juice machine is available 24/7, which is great in that very warm climate. Driving in Puerto Rico is a major adventure, so if you're uncomfortable driving in midtown Manhattan or on the L.A. freeways, you might want a hotel with shuttle service. Otherwise, if you don't mind walking a few blocks to your car, and battling the traffic and bizarre road system, this hotel is a good value.

Great cozy boutique hotel. A block away from Condado area night life. Very clean rooms and relaxing. Typical continental breakfast included. Friendly and helpful hotel staff. Highly recommend if you want a quiet get away.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms in the back of the building.

The best part of this hotel is that its 2 blocks from the beach in "New San Juan". The room is ok, but the included continental breakfast is horrible. We asked to chsnge the room because the sheets and pillow covers had not been change prior to our arrival. The staff was friendly. Next time we go San Juan we willm look for another place

Room Tip: The rooms needs to be clean, the bed clothing need to been clean, and the location of the room. The...

Frequent traveler to Puerto Rico. This hotel is the worse I've stayed in. They should not claim free parking since they only have four spots available in front which the employees take. House keeping doesn't exist here, everyday requesting towels and/or toilet paper. Manager doesn't address issues.

I spent a week at the Coral Princess with my 6 year old grand daughter and had a wonderful stay. The little hotel is clean, convenient and the staff is very accomodating and pleasant. It's walking distance to several beach areas, shopping and restaurants. It's not the big resort type place, as are so many hotels in the Condado area, but for me, it was homey and comfortable.
