“Work hard to find some other lodgings”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

Not a two-star hotel. Maybe a one-and-a-half star hotel. We stayed a total of four nights here because every other room in San Juan was booked. Our bathroon had a strong sewer smell and to use the toilet you had to reach into the water tank to pull up the flapper valve. It was repaired 36 hours after we asked them to. The WIFI connection in our room was unreliable, coming a going. The only way to get a good WIFI connection was to sit in the hall way outside the front desk. The room phones cannot be used to dial outside the hotel; if you don't have a cell phone, you are out of luck. Room lighting is very dim; difficult to read by it. No air conditioning, so the widow must be left open, allowing street noises in making it difficult to sleep. The overall maintenance of the hotel is poor: many cracks in the bathroom walls, scruffy carpeting, and the bathroom door jammed requiring extra effort to close.
On the plus side, they did clean the rooms as best as could be expected, clean sheets and towels each day. The contenental breakfast was OK, not great. The morning coffee was good. The afternoon/evening desk clerk was attentive and spoke good English. The rest of the staff was so-so. You should do your best to find some other place.

Room Tip: Don't, just don't.

We chose Hotel Nuevo San Francsico due to the rather positive description in Lonely Planet.
O boy were we wrong. At first it seemed like an average 2-star hotel but the service they offered was horrible.
First of all the bed and the pillows were the most uncomfortable ever. For example the pillow was as thick as an average napkin. We actually brought our inflatable pillows from the car because it was otherwise impossible to sleep.
But the worst problem was the noise. The hotel is situated by a large avenue and as the windows were crappy, it seemed like your bed is in the middle of the street when you closed your eyes. The active traffic ended ca 1 o'clock at night and started again ca 5 o'clock in the morning. So we practically did not sleep that night.
Can't say anything about the location though. We arrived San Juan in the evening and left next morning, did not go sightseeing there.
Couple of positive things also. The staff was very friendly and tried really hard. Besides that we were able to park our car in a closed courtyard ca 1 block away. And there was an excellent grill-restaurant nearby - not particularly well furnished but the grill-mix for two was heavenly and really abundant.
So if you need rest at night, don't go there.
