We had a room on the second story with a balcony that overlooked the street just steps from the town plaza. The room had very tall and narrow entrance door (2 feet). The place was time warped from early 1900's but was well maintained but gave you a taste of old PR. The towels were plush and large and there were lots of them. The air conditioner was a bit hard to figure out, but worked well. It took about 25 minutes to locate the hotel in Ponce rush hour, so make sure your GPS has it in the memory. Breakfast was minimal, but acceptable since it was included. Good value for your buck. Hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. Parking was available on the street for free from 4:30 pm til 8 am, after that you need to pay the meter. There is additional parking in a lot, but it is a bit of a walk. The square at night had some interesting activity going on (free roaming dogs, lady bellowing thru a bullhorn about Jesus (I think!) . There was some road noise, but was mitigated by the air conditioner. Hotel had WIFI and a computer in the fitness area ( just 1 machine). All in all we would recommend you staying here--it was a good deal.
