We stayed at this B&B for one night on our way back home after 8 days touring other parts of the Puerto Rico and Vieques. I was really looking forward to it based on the reviews, and feel bummed to even write this, but it didn't live up to our expectations. In short, we were glad we were only there for one night.
The location of this property is terrific - wonderfully easy to get around Old San Juan and easy to find. Feels safe and secure (you are given a gate code).
The proprieters of the B&B were extremely helpful, almost to a fault. While they spent a tremendous amount of time acquainting us with our environs and giving recommendations on places to eat and things to see, it was almost information overload and got to the point where we were politely looking at our watches, trying to subtly get out of there. The local guide that they e-mail you before arrival, however, is terrific.
We stayed in a smaller one bedroom unit that can be part of a larger apartment (which we did not see). There is a common foyer that had very thin walls, so you could hear anyone outside of our door. This would have been annoying had we been there for more than one night.
While the room was nicely furnished, the linens felt somewhat cheap, and there were no windows (despite lovely tall ceilings - the history of the building is pretty neat).
The bathroom seemed clean, but just barely. The bathroom mat looked like it had had better days, and overall, the bathroom seemed to need a deep clean, rather than a cursory once-over between guests. Worst of all, we couldn't get any hot water during our stay, only barely lukewarm showers.
Breakfast was just ok - great coffee, but we didn't think the spread was anything special to write home about.
