Booked a room for the night before boarding our cruise from San Juan. It was an interesting place and I really wanted to be able to give it a great review. We selected Da' House based on two factors: Location and Price. The Location was very good. It was in the heart of Old San Juan (where we wanted to be) and also close enough to the Cruise Terminal that we could carry our luggage down to the pier the next morning. The Price was also good, and I liked the fact that you can select your own room in advance, however, I failed to put sufficient weight on the description relating to "the party." (My bad!)
We stayed in Room 204 with a description of "Close to the Party" as opposed to others described as "Right above the Party." Let me say now, there is NO difference!
Not knowing what "the party" was or how much it would impact our stay, I was not too concerned since we would not be arriving until around midnight anyway. "The party" though continued well past 2 AM and was very loud. Impossible to block it out. The bed was not particularly comfortable either. I did eventually sleep though, but mostly from the exhaustion of working most of the day and then traveling until midnight.
If returning to San Juan under similar circumstances, I would probably consider staying at Da' House again, but would definitely select a room on the other side of the building away from the club next door.
