I stayed in room 205....literally on top of the club. Since I'm from New York City, I had absolutely no problem falling asleep. In fact, the two nights I was there, both nights I woke up at 2am because the music STOPPED!
The staff is VERY helpful and incredibly nice. On Friday night, they had an all you can drink mojitos on the roof deck...a welcome and nice way to kick off the weekend!
A group of us stayed there prior to our cruise. I checked in to my cruise early in the morning and still had time to go back to the hotel to take a shower. Literally a 10 to 15 min walk.
Please be aware that on this side of Old San Juan can appear a little sketchy. I walked down Calle San Francisco AWAY from San Cristobal forte and it was like walking in to a completely different town. Cleaner, nicer shops, more tourist friendly.
Pros: Comfy bed. Decent shower. Location. Very friendly staff. A couple of doors down from La Mallorca Cafe!
Cons: No closet/drawers (didn't even notice...but my roommate needed to hang linen slacks). Housekeeping ran VERY late (returned to the room around 4p in the afternoon and room still hadn't been straightened up. Fresh towels AND wash clothes came around 6p)
No elevator.....but I should put that as a PRO....you need the exercise after all the food you eat.
No TV (but I knew that going in)
If you are looking for a hotel with room service ,and turn down service....this isn't the place for you. Da House can be best described as a Hostel for adults. If you have to stay more than three days, don't stay here.....most people are there either before or after the cruise (which leaves at 10p on Sunday),
I would stay here again for sure you can't beat the price and the location!
