Very good location. Close to the ports if you are going on a cruise. Lots to see and everything is in walking distance, or if you want you can take the bus just right outside and it’s free. Very good service. Friendly staff. Rooms are very cozy.

I would suggest phoning the hotel also. I would return in a heart beat if the hotel was open. Just love Puerto Rico and Old San Juan in particular. Happy travels and best of luck. Val.

"get a balcony room"
"Book a balcony room."
"Don't use Agoda.com"
"Ask for the king room on the second floor overlooking the street"
"The room I was in was very quiet. I didn't hear much noise at all. Ask for a room with a window. It does get claustrophobic."
