It is difficult to get a good hotel in San Juan under 100 dollars. This one was quite a bit under and it was excellent value for the money. The hotel is close to the university and one can access old San Juan via a metro and a bus. We did not do this but we were told it took... More

Thank you for coming and for your honest review. We are a budget hotel, we try to keep it clean. Nearby University Of Puerto Rico, is a very crowded area with plenty of places to eat. Thanks for your time, and we hope to see you in the near future. More

We booked this hotel to spend some time in San Juan and wait for our cruise date. We were satisfied with the accommodations and the staff was very agreeable. It is out of the way and if on a budget you should factor in a $35 taxi from airport and back to town for a total of $70. However, for... More

Elena and her staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed there a week ago and had a pleasant stay. Everything that the hotel said that was offered was there. Only thing we didnt get to use the breakfast as there was only coffee offered. lots of food options around the hotel. Elena was great and helpful in getting us transportation... More

HI: Is the second time that you submit the same review since May 2015. I did not know what is your intention. When you made the reservation was very clear our localization, that this is not a big hotel, that we are not in Old San Juan. You paid for one night 63 usd plus tax for a room, what... More

Let me begin by saying that I had an excellent stay here, so the 3 stars have nothing to do with my stay but with other factors that I'm sure other travelers will agree we all consider essential to staying at a hotel. SUMMARY (for those who don't like to read extensively detailed reviews): We enjoyed our whole trip to... More

Good morning. Thank you for the review and for your visit. Sorry for the lady that did not bring a nice welcome to you. That night was the first day working alone and she was nervous. We feel sorry about the situation and we will work hard to improve that. Was a pleasure, to have you here. We hope to... More

The Dreams Hotel is located in an older section of San Juan. There are a few local restaurants on the same street, as well as a small grocery store and a couple of "bars." I appreciated having some conveniences within a very short walking distance. The rooms are very basic and there is no elevator; the staff was more than... More

Arrived late and left early so can only really comment on the room - a $60 single which had a comfy bed, clean bathroom with shower, good wifi and TV. Also a little fridge. Check-in took a while due to an inexperienced but friendly clerk. She came up to show me the inner security door and how it functioned. The... More

The owner Elena does an outstanding job running this property. I found this hotel on Tripadvisor, and like other travelers had a great experience. We stayed at this property for 3 days...on 2 separate occasions. The first time we were on the 2nd floor. All the tile and paint on the 2nd floor are new. The room was spotlessly clean!... More

Thank you so much for the review and the nice explanation of us and the area. Is good for other people to know that we are three blocks away from the University of PR, and plenty of students are here.

My experience with the Dreams Hotel was lacking. Upon arrival, I found it extremely difficult to park the rental car and had to use street parking twice during a three day stay. Check-in was easy after I located the staff - there is a very small point-of-sale style minimal check-in followed by steep stairs that will be difficult for guests... More

In both English and Español, respectively. As a first time visitor who lives in mainland U.S., I was a bit anxious when going through the hotel selection process in our visit to Puerto Rico —specially because we were looking for the smaller, more down-to-earth options in the San Juan Metropolitan area. I am glad we paid attention to the positive... More
