Reviewed July 23, 2009

If you are looking for budget accomodations in San Juan then look no further. Now don't expect, tropical swimming pools, gourmet restaurants, ammenities galore, or the beach at your doorstep, but what you can expect, is a very clean quiet comfortable room with air conditioning, a full private bath, an in room safe and cable TV with a helpful and freindly staff. To get to the resort areas, restaurants or the beach, you will need to take a taxi or the bus. However, location aside, this is what a budget hotel should be. Besides, the bus stop is only a half a block away and will take you anywhere in the San Juan Metro area cheaply.

Whenever me and my husband travel to puerto rico we stay at Olimpo Court. In short walking distances you have a 24/7 restaurant, dominoes, supermarket, pharmacy, shopping and your about 3 to 4 blocks from a theatre and bus rides away from the famous mall plaza las americas and many other exciting places. The rooms could have been a bit bigger but it makes up for how clean their keep and you usually don't spend much time there anyway, so many places to go. Norma and Jose are so helpful and pleasant they complete the package. The price is suitable for the deal. Were always satisfied at the end of our stay

I travel frequently to Puerto Rico and I am very familiar with San Juan and the rest of the island. I knew this hotel was in an inconvenient location and I was also ready for a low budget accommodation. I choose this hotel because I had a late night flight and needed to sleep only for a few hours before driving to my next destination. After sending some e-mails asking for information and pointing out to my late night arrival, I gave the hotel my credit card number and personal information as requested. In one e-mail, the hotel manager reassured me, even though the hotel did not have a 24 hours reception desk, that they would leave my room key with the watchman. I called and e-mailed the hotel a couple of times as I was experiencing very poor communication and little response, up to finally, my reservation was completed. When I arrived to the hotel, located in a dark and isolated street, I was informed by the friendly and solitary watchman that the reception was closed and he was not expecting any guest. As I requested his help, he made a phone call and then informed me that my credit card did not work, so no reservation was made. I was never informed about this situation. To end my adventure, he told us that I was welcome to sit in a chair in the bare and simple lobby or search for another hotel. After some more talk, I noticed it was pass 4:30 A.M. so I decided to drive to my next destination where I did not have any problem with my reservation - as I never have had before my Olimpo Court shocking experience.

Our group of 7 (with 3 teenagers) was looking to find a decent place w/ good value, for our first night ever in PR. Found this place through TripAdviser & we found it met our expectations. In a very safe neighborhood w/ a staff that was attentive to our needs. We got two rooms w/ enough beds for all & slept comfortably. Rooms were basic, but clean & met our needs; ours had a small fridge, microwave & a balcony overlooking the harbor. Only thing missing was some coffee and fruit in the lobby in the morning.

After reading many reviews my wife and I chose the Olimpo Court Hotel for a two night stay in San Juan. We were pleasantly surprised.
CLEAN: The hotel was clean, beds, bathroom and room in general.
COMFORTABLE: Although the room was small, The beds were comfortable, plus it has
all the ammenities we needed air conditioning, microwave, fridge,
kitchenette, cable TV.
CONVENIENT: 75 Cent bus ride to Old San Juan. Restaurants both fast food - Subway's
Domino's as well as an upscale restaurant within the hotel and a few
authentic Puerto Rican local restaurants ( Los Pinos ) Local supermarket
Pueblo if you just want snack foods for your room.
CURTIOUS: Upon arrival we were greeted by Jose, very gracious and helpful, next
day we met Norma who was as helpful and gracious. Both of these
people were a great example of the many pleasant people we did meet
while in San Juan.
COST: After many hours on the computer trying to find a reasonable hotel, we lucked out
the cost for this hotel was in our range for a 2 night stay before we got on our
cruise, and we definately made the right decision.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone we knew who were going to San Juan, do not expect a pool or beachfront, ( 15 minute walk to public beach ) but do expect the five things my wife and I look for when traveling and planning short stays in specific areas.

For the prices I was seeing, this hotel had an affordable price, although I think Puerto Rico is an expensive place to go. But it worths. The city of San Juan is beautiful, modern and the historic part is conserved. So, I have seen some comments here in TripAdvisor and resolved to take a chance on this hotel. Actually it was more than I thought. The hotel is being renewed, so the main entrance and lobby are modern and new. The parking area is wide and safe. I was a little affraid about the pictures I have seen in internet, but everything was better than imagined. The room still needs to be reformed and renewed; instead, it is clean and spacious. The bathroom seemed to be renewed as it was looking a little bit more new than the room. The room decor is not that good. TV is old, but enough, as we spent more time out of the hotel. Concluding, I would stay there again. It was a good option for the prices used in San Juan. Staff are friendly.

  • Liked — Location, Rates.
  • Disliked — Old decor in the room.
