“Nice boutique hotel in great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Room was very nice and location is outstanding. My only complaint is that there is no breakfast but there are several places to eat within short walking distance. The pool area is very nice and the staff helpful.

Very nice and resonable for a day or two. Close to the beach. GREAT mexican place to eat one block away. Best margaritas we've had in a long time and great food. hotel was generally clean. very accomodating and pleasant staff. Super little pool out back with 10 foot walls and excellent privacy/security. Our rooms had little patios and lounge chairs. Nothing different to report from other reviews other than you get what you make of this. We liked it and will be back.

Room Tip: We had two rooms at the end of the hall on the first floor that had windows facing the little pool...

Right in the heart of Condado. Service was excellent. Price great too!! Very little time is actually spent in the room in Condado, so this place was ideal. I would stay there again!! Walgreens and Starbucks very close also.

Well 1st off the front desk attendant Johnathan was very helpful and friendly (by far the easiest one to ask questions about tourist attractions etc). He recommended restaurants nearby the hotel as well as gave us accurate directions to get to them. Any time we needed something he was eager to lend a hand (hard to find these days). The pool was nice although id prefer it be a bit warmer. The room door got stuck opening but that was most likely due to the humidity, as for the room itself the bed was comfortable and surfaces were kept pretty clean. Over all decent hotel considering the location (do not walk the beaches alone at night because the cops , despite the number of them, do not do their jobs) I would stay here again.

Please do not stay at this hotel unless you dont mind having your items stolen. There is this guy named jonathan that works at this hotel from 3pm to 11pm. He sits at th front desk and once you leave the hotel, he will enter your room and go through your personal belongings. My friends and i experienced this first hand.
Mostly eldely guest, nice pool in the back
The hotel rooms smell ok but can be better. Other staff are nice

Room Tip: First floor rooms have a back patio if you smoke

4 adults stayed 1 night pre-cruise - we had a late arrival and the young man working the desk was very nice & helpful - we stayed in the room requested - 2 queen beds, small and adequate - nothing fancy, but we weren't expecting that - Walgren's short walking distance to pick up some water & wine for our cruise. It is definitely a 2 star hotel - could be kept a little cleaner and with some updates in furniture etc - could be nice for a few days. It's definitely for a budget crowd which we were that night - any other hotel would have charged us over $300 for 1 night with 4 people - Le Consulat did not charge extra for the 4th person so for $150.00 for the night, we were pleased. Be warned that we did not have any hot water for our 4 showers - that was frustrating as we took them at night/and 2 in the morning and nothing changed.

Housekeeping need to be improved that's the reason for a 4, Otherwise, this one should be a 5 when using Choice hotel points to stay for free. Hotel prices are in general expensive in San Juan, so use points would be a great way to save money. Hotel Location is good not too far away from Condado Beach. They gave us a room with 2 queen beds and pretty modern amenities but we felt the housekeeping was subpar for sure. San Juan's buses were not reliable so we used taxi many times. You can always share taxi ride with people waiting at the bus stop since most of their taxicabs were like big vans that can take more than 8 people and the price is negotiable. This hotel doesn't offer complimentary breakfast like other choice hotel does. There's a small swimming pool on the back of the hotel that we didn't use since it's really small. There's a Walgreen 2 blocks away with good prices. In general, nice cozy hotel perfect for using points.
