Our group was two couples vacationing together. We stayed in the garden suit. The location is hard to beat. Literally step out the front door into prime old San Juan charm. The apartment decor and furniture could use updated but overall we were very happy with our stay. We have no regrets and would stay again. The beach is not...

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed yourselves. You were model guests!

Staying at the Gallery Apartment was absolutely wonderful! The location was perfect; our balcony was overlooking Calle del Cristo, directly in the heart of Old San Juan. Being directly in the center meant we were in walking distance to each and every attraction in Old San Juan. The gorgeous apartment allowed for a relaxing start to every day, drinking a...

About the neighborhood
Enjoy the romance of Old San Juan with its gaslights, cobblestone streets, legendary cultural events, shopping and nightlife, from your very own apartment in a 16th century restored building, certified authentic by the Institute of Culture. You will be on the best and most secure block in Old San Juan, in the middle of the gallery/shopping district: bustling during the day, and quiet at night.

The building is surrounded by historic monuments. We are 1 block south of the Cathedral de San Juan, 1 block north of the Cristo Chapel, Pigeon Park, and La Fortaleza (the Governor's Mansion)

One block west is the Plaza de Armas, where you'll find cafes, grocery and drug stores as well as a stop for the free trolleys that go around San Juan and a taxi stand. You are 2 blocks south of th...

How to get there
Airport: SJU: 11.8 mi
SJU is an international airport so there are cabs there 24/7. Any taxi driver will know how to get to Old San Juan. Once here he may need help, or if you're driving yourself: When you leave the airport, follow the signs to San Juan. Stay on that same road all the way to Old San Juan. When you are getting near, the road will turn left by the Normandie hotel. From there on you'll have the view of the ocean on your right. You pass the capitol on your left. Keep to your right. As you come into Old San Juan, you go down a slight hill, and see the Plaza Colon. Before the plaza go right, up a steep hill and continue as the road turns left and runs along the top of San Juan (This is the best way to avoid traffic). After several blocks you'll see El Morro ahead and another plaza on you... more
