Kinda cool, kinda creepy, has you looking over your shoulder, then exploring the next room wondering if you should open that creaky wooden door at the top of the stairs.
Despite the above, and because of the above The Gallery is a place not too be missed in Old San Juan.
On the practical side the rooms are funky and well equiped, bathrooms clean, closets a tad musty, but all else spotless. The roof has one of the best views in Old San Juan, and the abundant patios and captive parrots make for many varied settings in which to have your morning coffee, or evening happy hour. The staff was extremely helpful and professional, and able to point you in any direction you might want to go. The location is prime, exactly where you would want to live if you were an Old San Juan resident (which I was for 2 years). And the summer rate makes it a much better deal than just about anywhere else you might think about staying.
Now for the artistic side - this is a place for poets, artists, and wandering souls. Imagine a dream scape filled with creations both stunning and morbid. Sun draped, flower filled patios, and china cabinets filled with ceramic heads. Opulent piano rooms found next to crowded book filled rooms, decorated with horse riding memorabilia and a stuffed former pet Hyacinth Macaw.
Wonder in and get lost among the many twists of the Gallery as you also get lost among the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan.
