“Da House is fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

We found Da House after a horrible experience at a hotel around the corner. Eduardo was great - he gave us a room that was 1/2 the price of the hotel we had just fled. After we told him we had not slept the night before, he put us in a room in the back of the hotel. He warned us that there might be some noise from the club downstairs, but our room was quiet. The sheets were nice and the bed was comfortable. The room was tiny, but who needs a large room? The hotel itself was in a beautiful building with lots of work by local artists. Eduardo, though, is much of the reason we had such a great experience. He was warm and engaging and genuine. He made us feel so welcome.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back if you want quiet.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our Puerto Rico trip and had a great time. It was a very eclectic hotel done in an artsy tasteful fashion. After 5 days of relaxation in Vieques, we were ready to get our dance on down in the Cafe Nuyorican downstairs. The music was excellent and we felt comfortable with our mediocre salsa skills. The location was great, right in the heart of Old San Juan. We actually never left OSJ because we had such a nice time exploring the area and appreciating all the architecture and art it has to offer.

I recommend exploring the forts. Also, we had excellent eats at Blessed Cafe (Chicken curry OMG), Pirilo Pizza Rustica, El Jibarito, and the old school diner-style breakfast at Cafeteria Mallorca (I think that's what it's called). Great area overall. And just beautiful.

This is a great hotel for anyone who has the basic needs. We wanted a hotel close to the cruise port and in Old San Juan. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room is very basic. But for one night it suited us. The rooms are a nice side and there is a small bathroom with a sink, toilet and shower. No televisions but we only had to open our windows to view the street below if we needed entertainment. It is noisy if you are a light sleeper but the location is wonderful. Remember there is no elevator and you have to climb a flight or two of steps to your room.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the main road are a bit quieter. The view in the morning on the rooftop is beautiful. E...

The good: great location, good prices, roof deck is okay

The bad: small, dingy rooms; low water pressure; very very loud; our bathroom had a frosted glass door, so that when one of us went to the bathroom at night it lit up the whole room; old towels; shower leaked onto bathroom floor and got the whole place wet; no soap holder shelf in shower; roof deck had dead or dying plants

We got here and they informed us the hot tub was under construction and would be ready "later" but when I asked them to elaborate they only said "later". When it was later after a night of drinking and touring we were informed it "might"be ready tomorrow...but after we checked out. Not happy. Also they don't have an elevator and no bus boys working for tips... Not recommended for groups with multiple bags.

We had tons of fun at this hotel. Stayed for 2 nights on our way to Cuelbra. Careful which side of the hotel you are on bar in the ally gets very, very loud and stays that way very late. Comfortable beds, great location. The bar in the ally unless you are spanish is not much fun. When we checked into the hotel we were told the hot tub was ready and waiting for us but when we go to the roof (which has amazing views) it was drained and stayed that way for our visit. I would stay again

Room Tip: call and ask to be in a room away from the bar.
