The history, architecture, and decor of this hotel makes it one of the best hotels to stay in San Juan. It's situated in Old Town, so the walking during the day makes it even more enjoyable. It's a short walk from the Fort as well.

The rooms are all air conditioned. The outdoor open terraced areas and some of the main lobby is not. But you must remember this is Puerto Rico and outdoor living. This hotel is so fabulous you’ll love it.

I think the populated parts of the city are fine now- just the rural areas are still in pain. Do it! PR needs tourism again and it’s so beautiful 🙂
