Nice, OLD, OLD hotel in the heart of Old San Juan. Within walking distance to many of the things to see and a fairly short taxi ride to the airport and cruise port for Celebrity Cruises. Other cruise terminals are even closer.
The hotel had no special attractions other than old world charm, good location and GREAT staff. Luis Garzon was especially helpful with directions, restaurants, tour trolleys and using the antiquated elevator -- when it worked. When it broke down, hotel staff was quick to help us get our luggage down. The room did have AC, a decent shower, and flat screen TV. Our room faced the street, so we heard the early morning deliveries to nearby stores, etc. but we also heard the jazz and classical music played in the park across the street in the early evening.
