My husband and I stayed here after disembarking from a cruise. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. We arrived earlier than check in time and were offered a different room since our reserved room was not yet available. We accepted the offer. This room, however, was on the 2nd floor and was not elevator accessible. The gentleman at the front desk told us not to worry and had a young man carry our bags to our room for us. Upon checkout, the front desk staff was helpful in obtaining a taxi to the airport. We give this hotel a 5* rating and look forward to returning.

Went to P.R for family matters and was aware of the restrictions the Puerto Rican government had in place so expectations were set. CasaBlanca is located in a fantastic location in Old San Juan. Lots of the dining options in the area were open including La Taberna Lupulo and La Sombra coffee shop. The hotel had a beautiful main lobby and my king bed room was nice and clean and modern. amenities were limited, but the rooftop was available. I would definitely return and give this place a chance when things come back to normal.

We came here the moment the island open business back up and lifted the curfew up til 10pm. It's a decent hotel at a great location and they are in the middle of making changes. The wifi is decent but please don't expect 5G speeds. My firestick was working without problems but the only thing is that I had to keep signing in every morning. In the rooms, they don't have any personal microwaves or mini fridge so be prepared for that but the beds are comfortable. I don't think they had any cleaners around due to COVID cause no one came to clean up but I understand. The staff was great and knowledgeable as well, can't forget about those guys. You can ask them anything dealing with Puerto Rico. The food was GREAT! They served the best food I've ate since I came to this island and I am not exaggerating. Please give them a try and tip accordingly. The only thing I would nitpick is the stairs going to the roof top 😭. Listen... I understand cause the elevator is under construction but if you're a person that works out and do lots of squats then look no further, you will not miss a beat on your exercise but If you're out of shape then I recommend either not going up or just be mentally prepared cause those stairs are HELL! It's like a sinner that was damned to hell ignored God judgement but found a back way to get into heaven. As you can see in the picture, I'm tired as fck cause that was the aftermath. Overall it's a good place to crash if you're not looking for a 5 star hotel with a 2-3 star budget.

Stayed here for three nights before a cruise and one night after. We were in room 3F for the first nights and the room was very very small and we had air conditioner problems and the floor became very wet. The whole room smelled musty. Staff were very nice but said a technician wouldn't be available until Monday. Not helpful! The good part is the staff were very very nice and we loved the hotel decor. I would give staff 5 stars! The little bar was very nice to have a night cap or hang out for a few. We also bought some beers at a market a few doors down from the hotel and enjoyed the rooftop. I found the bathtubs just took up space. After the cruise, I was not looking forward to staying in the room but to our surprise we were in room 2D and it was a totally different experience. The room was much larger and we had no problems with the air conditioner. I learned that it depends on what room you get as to what your experience is in staying at the hotel. Although I think everyone would agree that the staff were awesome! You also can't beat the location.

Stayed one night at this charming boutique hotel. Staff was so helpful and friendly! Location can’t be beat - in the middle of walking distance to everything in Old San Juan. Rooftop offered amazing views of city and a great place to chill out. The rooms were small and bed was comfy. Only reason bumping down to 3 stars is because the rooms were not clean to our standards. Noticed multiple hairs in the bathroom- shower and floors.
