Hotel Melia is nothing fancy but has plenty old world charm. The furnishings are plain and dated. However, the hotel is located right on city center square and is in a great location for all the attractions.

This is a classic old world hotel, with some nice amenities, including updated pool, coffee shop/cafe and rooftop terrace bar. The lobby is tastefully decorated and features incredible examples of vejigantes (traditional demon masks worn during Carnivale). There is a historical working elevator for moving luggage to upper floors, but the elevator doesn't travel to the rooftop bar. Our room... More

Unfortunately the stay was not the best nor expected. I spent three days and two nights at the hotel during the third week of January 2016 and it was the worst experience I've had in a hotel. Within ten minutes of arriving at the room I started with allergy. I went to bed and as at about three in the... More

The location is perfect, because it's just on the square. We had a large room at the frontside with a balcony overlooking the square with the Parque de Bombas and the cathedral. Here, at night I loved to watch the people coming from everywhere to buy an icecream downstairs. Downside in these rooms is that you must expext some noise... More

It's right next to the historic sites in Ponce downtown, yet a bit difficult to find coz the GPS is inaccurate. The lodge looks decent, good restaurant, nice view on the roof with bar. They provide a free drink in the rooftop bar and a free coffee during breakfast. You have to pay $6 to park on site, but there... More

It was a nice place to stay, old but Nice. Has a Nice restaurant/Bar on top of the hotel and the food was good, ( food from different parts of the world on menu). Centrally located and the area is a nice walking area to see all the old buildings. Parking is great and secure.

We stayed for 2 days. The Hotel is cozy and reminds me of Europe. This Hotel it's not a resort but if youu want to know the city, enjoy the Puertorican culture and being able to walk to the town is the ideal place. My room was clean. I love the nightlife in this town, we walk to all the... More
