We stayed here the night before our cruise. I love Old San Juan and this hotel was right in the middle of it all. The entrance is a little strange because the outside door is locked and you have to ring a bell to get in. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. What more could you ask for? You... More

No, it's not the Ritz, but it is a nice funky hotel in a GREAT location...reminded me of an old European hotel. It is an old converted office building with only 24 rooms, but they are large with modern bathrooms. Your old-fashioned key...yes, a real key...gets you in the secure front door and into your room. There is no telephone... More

Good spacious modern rooms in a superb location. The outside of the building and entrance made me fear the worst but inside the rooms are very nice.

We stayed at the S.J. Suites for two nights in December and were very pleased by this hotel. The beds were great and the rooms clean but the best was the great location directly in Old San Juan. If you want to pay not so much money but still have all places in walking distance this is a great choice.... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights before venturing on to other parts of the island. Old San Juan can be very exciting (read: loud) on weekends, but our guest room on the third floor was whisper quiet. The accommodations aren't lavish, and they're not especially stylish either. But it's a good place to get a good night's... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night prior to our cruise. We had one of the king suites, and we were very pleased with the condition of the room and the overall service.

We stayed here for 1 night before leaving on a cruise. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Our room (520) had a couch/sitting area, king size bed, mini fridge/wet bar area. We did not have a street view so we found the room to be extremely quiet and had a great night's... More

Found this hotel through TripAdvisor. We rented a suite which was an interior set of rooms with no windows so was quiet. The living room was at best basic with a refrigerator and a bar sink and an uncomfortable couch.. The bedroom had a queen bed, huge closet, and a small bathroom.

I would simply reiterate what virtually EVERYONE has already said in this forum. This hotel is extremely well situated to do everything in Old San Juan. It is not deluxe, but the rooms are very spacious and clean and the front desk quite helpful. Although we arrived late evening and were concerned about walking around in a "strange" city, we...
