I stayed here in business February 2nd which also happened to be a Friday night. The hotel is located just steps away from the town square in Ponce's Colonial Zone. This is great for walking around and touring Ponce but be warned there are many bars and much partying that happens in and around the square. I opted for a Balcony Room which I thought would be great but proved to be a noisy nightmare. My Associate stayed in an Interior Room for less money and did not experience the noise factors that I experienced. The Bars are open until 4 AM and the noise lasted way past that time. Then the clean up noises start!
The hotel itself in a blast from the past and is over 150 years old. My room was quite large and spacious. There, however is no elevator so be prepared to carry your bags up several flights of steps. Also, I never was able to get hot water in the shower. All in all the price was right and I enjoyed seeing old Ponce. Next time I would certainly staty away from the Balcony Room and probably stay out later to deal with the noise. As the old saying goes, "if you cant beat them;join them". I am certain that is the only way to get a quite nights sleep on a weekend!!
