This place was cute after you get used to to steep incline going up and the unmarked last step of what appears to be a long slope at the end, until you trip and realize there is a stair there. I did comment to them that with a stroller, this could be perilous for someone, meaning me.
The people who work there are really sweet! They have an elevator which is quite tiny, but works. It does not seem to line up with the floors it stops at, however. So watch your step. You have to watch your step a lot in Condado and in Old San Juan. There are literally huge holes in the sidewalks and tiles that fall away leaving you with a mere precipice of salvation.That is, if your foot doesn't get caught. This hotel was very cute and has a nice outdoor patio where you can have an ok breakfast. The toaster over did not really work right.
The parlor area is really cutely decorated. There are nice travel brochures to help you get ideas for your trip. There are always tons of taxis outside. Don't even bother waiting for a but. It takes hours and they never seem to arrive. I gave up and finally rented a car. You really need a car while there. IT's not like being in Europe or Israel where the busses are all over the place. The walk across the bridge the long way to Condado Plaza is really pretty. And there is a little beach along the way that is great if you have kids because there are no really big waves. Most of the beaches everywhere are kind of dangerous with kids. Also in Pinones there are beaches toward the end of the town that are shallower and safer. This hotel was really fun and nice, aside from the gay disco bar next door. The coqui frogs begin at around 4:30 or so and are a wonderful compliment to this fast paced city.
