We recently stayed at the Casablanca Hotel, located in Old San Juan. We arrived late at night and were warmly greeted. Our room was on the third floor of the hotel, which normally would have been okay, but there was no elevator. Being as tired as we were, it was a hard climb with heavy luggage. The room was small but nice, and clean. Previous reviews listed complaints about noise from the street. I have to say, it was very quiet in our room, on a Saturday night. We slept really well. Everything in the room was well-appointed. The next morning, we were able to get good suggestions for places to eat in the area, since the hotel is in a good area of the old city. Now I have to say that I am disappointed that I didn't realize that the hotel restaurant was a hidden gem, so we didn't eat there (since we had a cruise to board).
I consider this hotel to be quite the find. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because of no elevator. Had I been a little younger and agile, I would have given it a 5.
