“Good hotel, Great location & staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Very nice hotel in overall!

Good about this hotel:

•Clean room
•Great staff, helpful, friendly & professional especially Juan!
•Great location in the heart of Condado •Good area for restaurant and beaches
•Free dispenser of juices, coffee, tea
•Many small rooms to have a time break and relax
•Clean and good small swimming pool

No so good

•I had a room just next to the breakfast area and very nose in the morning. To to avoid this one
•Tv: impossible to watch, but to be honest I didn't ask help!
•Parking, only 4 places available. But better than nothing.
•Water in the shower take a wile to be warm/hot

Prices are correct for this area. But in general I was surprise from the high prices level of hotel in San Juan

This hotel was decent. Very pretty and in a great area. Easy to walk to a lot of different restaurants and places. We got upgraded when we arrived and had a nicely decorated room with a big jacuzzi tub. I was a little frustrated because there was no parking and we had to park down the street and pay $13 for overnight. The breakfast was okay, mainly yogurt and boiled eggs and a coffee/juice machine. Overall a decent stay.

We absolutely loved this hotel ! Very small and boutique style. Excellent staff (so nice and helpful) with a tropical courtyard for relaxing. This is also where they serve breakfast in the morning - Great breakfast, by the way (LOTS of choices and plenty of food). Walking distance to the beach, the shopping area, and lots of restaurants and bars. This part of Condado seems to be a very trendy area and is just a few short minutes from Old San Juan. The only thing I wished was different was that the jacuzzi was heated (they have a nice jacuzzi on the rooftop terrace, which was beautiful, but the jacuzzi was a little chilly and would have been PERFECT if it was heated) But, not a big deal, and it didn't take away from the experience. I would highly recommend this hotel ! A nice location, lots of amenities, and a convenient parking area in front of the hotel. Two thumbs up !

We stayed at the hotel from 01/23/13 to 01/26/13, It was amazing!! Its a small hotel but very nice. Very cute public area, the terraces are really cute, the Jacuzzi is amazing (after a long day its really good) and they have a swimming pool. The bathtub is really amazing its like a private Jacuzzi ! And the breakfast was really good! Lot of choices, good food. You have coffee and juices unlimited 24hours!
But the most important in this hotel is the staff!!! Really nice and helpful ! When you ask for something they do it right away and they give you good tips about San Juan or other sightseeing!
Location is amazing, 5 min of the beach, 2 min from a 24h walgreen and 2 min from the main street to go out.
Perfect for everybody!!!!!!! Couple, family or friends!

A very nice hotel with good location, 5 minutes from the beach and just a few minutes from the main restaurant street in the area. And the bus from Old San Juan passed right by the hotel and cost only 75 cents.
Clean, simple rooms with everything you need, including air condition and a reasonably priced minibar ;-) Lovely roof terrace with a jacuzzi, and on the patio there is a small swimming pool that's very refreshing when you come back after a day at the beach or in town.
Breakfast was simple, but with everything you need: toast, cheese, ham, cereals, several pastries, juice, coffee etc. It was self-service with seats both inside and on the patio.
Very quiet compared to the large resorts we saw on the main street, excellent choice and good value for money. Staff was very friendly too, and there is free wi-fi.

This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and we decided to take a chance with a smaller family hotel rather than stay at a bigger, popular resort style hotel and it was a win. The hotel is a cute, art deco style building two blocks from the Condado beach. The room was clean and bright with everything you need for even a longer stay. Marble tiled floors, flat screen TV, comfy bed with plush linens and ample storage for clothes. Even the smaller rooms have a jacuzzi tub to ease the soreness of a long day of city walking or hiking in the El Yunque rainforest and the hotel supplied toiletries were great quality. The room contained a small table with two chairs and a larger than average mini-bar/ fridge which has enough room to store items that you might buy for later consumption. The hotel has a common area on the roof with a great view and a 4 person hot tub as well as an adjacent common room with a pool table and reading areas. The free continental breakfast supplied more than expected and you can eat in your room or in the outdoor enclosed garden area. Within walking distance of 4 star dining as well as cheaper fare. Night clubs and casinos are also a walk away if that is your cup of tea. The staff is wonderfully pleasant and the service is far above what you might receive at a larger chain. We are from Atlanta and, on our last day, found that the owner is an Atlanta transplant. Serendipity indeed!
