I stay here every time I go to Puerto Rico. Every room is unique and very artsy. The room on the top floors are the best in my opinion. I love the art work throughout the hotel and would come again and again for it service, location and yes the vibe!

Excellent hotel in every way. It is beautiful , clean and comfortable. The roof terrace is also a nice touch. All of the major sites are within walking distance. The helpful friendly staff makes the stay all the more enjoyable.

When we travel, we like to get a sense for local culture and Villa Herencia really does give you that Old San Juan experience. The location is great as it is only a few blocks in any direction from something to see. The cab driver may not know where it is, but if you tell them it is next to... More

Fell in love with Villa Herencia the first time my husband & I stayed here in our first visit tonPuerto Rico on our 20th anniversary & knew right away that we had discovered a hidden gem in Old San Juan.

When I usually visit Puerto Rico, I stay with family. As this was my boyfriend's first visit I wanted to stay in Old San Juan to take in the rich historical culture. I did not want to stay in such a beautiful part of the island and stay in a chain hotel so I had remembered finding this place about... More

We stayed at La Herencia for our daughter's wedding at El Convento on May 7, 2016. We had stayed at El Contenvto 7 years ago and fell in love with Old San Juan.

First, I am not a huge fan of commercialized hotels. I like smaller independent boutique hotels. Villa Herencia is just that. Each room has charm and the hotel is in a wonderful location in Old San Juan that allows you to walk everywhere within a few blocks. The longer we were in Old San Juan the more we realized that...

Location, location, location. Just up from the San Juan Gate, this boutique hotel is one of a kind. The service was exceptional. We had a first floor room that was small, but comfortable, and the courtyard and rooftop space more than made up for it. The rooftop at night was magical. Breakfast was simple, but the dining room and service... More

This is, hands down, the best place to stay in Old San Juan. It's perfectly located in one of the quieter areas of Old San Juan, near the Governor's Mansion. It's just steps from the iconic cathedral, forts named as national treasures, and the San Juan Gate and trail, which is right on the water. The hotel itself is perfectly... More

The property is in a great part of Old San Juan. It's quiet, charming, close to great quality shops and restaurants. We had a king bed. We opened the door and the bed was right there! Ever so slightly cramped. This particular room was used for a kitchen when nuns occupied the building. It certainly has charm. Unfortunately, the water... More

Dear Wordzee, Thank you so much for staying with us, Villa Herencia is an upgraded Villa from 1772 where you can breathe history and local culture. It is really a one of a kind and with this amount of history comes certain compromises like space. But, that being said the comforts of modern amenities and the convenience of its central... More
