If you are going to Ponce and stay in a nice hotel this is a perfect option. My stay was perfect. Colonial stylish hotel, clean and beautiful. Monica at the front desk was very professional, kind and helpful. She gave me good recommendations of the city and definitely she made my stay easy. Hotel is located in the middle of everything. Theres good spots to eat near. Theres a food truck in front of the hotel and i recommend it, also there is a cool souvenir store Utopía and theres a cafeteria inside with good breakfast. Rooms were beautiful and i loved my balcony. Check out was very easy by Madeline she was very kind too. They also provide me a letter for staying at the hotel and that was beautiful and professional. Nothing bad to say about this place is perfect. Norberto is the GM and he had a great communication with me. Thank you so much guys for being part of my journe, i really appreciate your kindest. See you soon!

We stayed at Hotel Belgica on Plaza Las Delicias, during the Ponce Carnival and loved it! We chose Ponce Carnival because it was our 30th wedding anniversary and we were married at Mardi Gras in New Orleans, so we decided to stay with the theme. First, I would say that if you want the excitement of a festival with parades and traditional costumes, etc., but not the public drunkeness that goes with it (in New Orleans) the Ponce Carnival is for you! The hotel is situated close to the festivities, so that we could get to the action in a five-minute walk, but far enough away that the hotel was quiet during the night. The staff was very friendly and Humberto, in particular, was gracious and had a number of great dining and sightseeing recommendations for us. The room was fairly spacious and had a nice queen bed & TV with Netflix (if you have an account, which we did). Huge double doors that open to a small balcony, on which we sat and had a glass of wine for happy hour, on the day we arrived. The AC worked well with a remote control. If you like a hotel with a historic feel, but all the modern amenities, located in a traditional city center, this place is for you. We did have some confusion about the carnival itself, which was scheduled for Saturday through Tuesday when we booked the reservation, but later was shortened to Sunday only. This was done because of the recent earthquake, of which Ponce was still showing some damage, with maybe 5 percent of buildings in the historic center being uninhabitable. However, the city was showing its resilient spirit during the carnival and we had a very good time at the parade and the musical performance in the evening (a salsa artist/band called Pirulo y La Tribu) was fantastic. We worked with Humberto to arrange an early check-out so we could see more of the island before we return to cold, snowy Colorado.

When old hotels try to adapt to contemporary tastes, the results are often disastrous. Either the antique charm of the original building is destroyed or the attempts at modernization are so halfhearted that you wind up with the worst of both eras. The Belgica avoids these pitfalls and is a textbook example of how a hotel built in 1872 can be gracious, spacious, and full of all the amenities today's travelers expect. This means, for example, that original worn marble and tile floors are intact, that the high-ceilinged rooms have beautiful and fully functional wooden shutter doors that open onto a streetside balcony, that wainscoting has been seamlessly replaced and maintained, and that you will find very little if any sheetrock about the place. However you will find booming WiFi, big flat-screen TVs, en suite bathrooms with piping hot water, firm mattresses and luxurious sheets, and good lighting throughout the rooms. The staff was understatedly excellent, giving us a mix of professionalism and the down-home hospitality that Ponce extends to travelers. I loved it from the moment we walked in.

Nice little hotel in beautiful Ponce, at walking distance of some of the best attractions. While rooms are very clean and the bed was comfortable, it lacks some of the details and amenities which we are used to having in other hotels: No elevators, no telephone in the room, no room service. Nevertheless, employees were very attentive and eager to serve. Restaurants and convenience stores are just but a few steps away. Perhaps other things we noticed are less important, but being in an old mansion they could be better are the lack of attention to decoration and common area maintenance. Everything clean, though. So, overall a nice alternative for a short stay.

The hotel is very clean , the service is helpful. I had a problem they fixed it. The hotel has no elevator and parking is a difficult but the staff is helpful in that regard. I am grateful they were open and in business even with the difficulties of the Hurricanes. They were very sincere and always asked me if I was ok. Amazing people . I would stay again. Amazing décor.
