“Jump on this when it opens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We stayed here two nights on our honeymoon. The hotel was unable to open as scheduled, but our original reservations were accommodated as a rental instead. The place was beyond fantastic and magical. The location was perfect, right at the end of a main Old San Juan street, a short walk to most things we wanted to visit in this area. The decor was an artistic blend of old and new, with and explosion of creativity. The rooms were more like apartments: very spacious, modern, yet respectful of the buildings history. The views from our room were great, looking out over the water with regular San Juan in the distance. The bed was the best we encountered, the rug in the living area was so mesmerizing to our feet, and the bathroom was very cool modern style. With a flat screen, Apple TV and good air conditioning, this is a fun and comfortable place to hang out. I mean, hammock in the living area, nice size dining table, two day beds/love seats, all in an area that was far from cramped. There is a small fridge and microwave that we loved for storing and heating our leftovers. We really wanted to move right in. I only hope I can afford this place once it finally opens as a hotel and starts catching on.
It is difficult to review it as a hotel, as we didn't get that experience (service etc.), but my communications with the mgt. were more than satisfactory and indicate that the service should be very good for this hotel. It was clean, new and oh so beautiful. I would love to stay here every single time I'm in Old San Juan. It is that cool. Downsides: no pool (who cares), no parking (cheap garage Dona Fela is nearby) and, well, I just can't think of another.

Room Tip: We had two separate stays, so we got to try two different rooms.Room 2 had the best view; room 3 was...
