This is a most delightful place to stay. The building is authentic, from 16th century. It is in a good location in Old San Juan on a quiet street. The staff is very friendly. I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in San Juan.

We stayed here for a few days after our cruise. The hotel is delightful! Only nine rooms. We had a terrace suite where our room opened onto the rooftop terrace. Had a master bedroom, sitting area with microwave a refrigerator and a second bedroom. The staff was very attentive and even delivered our breakfast to our terrace! So well located...

We came for our honeymoon and the hotel was EXACTLY like the photos online. Within walking distance to many shops, places to eat, and historic landmarks. If you have a rental, their sister company offers parking for $20/day for Villa Herencia guests. The continental breakfast included with the stay was light, yet filling.

Had 3 nights pre Cruise in this charming property in the old part of San Juan. We had a comfort king room which had a huge bed, even wider than our NZ super king! It did leave little room surrounding it for 'operational' purposes but we soon got used to it. Continued Breakfast is included served in an antique dining...

When my fiance and I came to Puerto Rico, we wanted to stay somewhere that FELT like we were in Puerto Rico (not some generic hotel), and this little gem right in the heart of old town was definitely that. We really enjoyed our stay, but I wouldn't recommend it for everyone. One of the biggest pros is the locations....

Discretely tucked away right in the middle of everywhere you want to be in Old San Juan, an inconspicuous little door opens up into a beautiful, magical, private boutique hotel par excellence! With four rooms on the ground floor encircling an open air courtyard, and four more upstairs on the garden terrace, this place is designed for serenity and atmosphere....
