I stayed here for the weekend, overall the hotel is very good, and mainteinance has been good for such an old building. Perfectly located in the center of the city, is a good point to start a trip to the rest of the south of the island. Just might recall 3 small details that can be improved, AC units are...

The place was good, simple with basic accommodations. Very original in almost every sense including the elevator and the flooring. It has great views of the city and the nature from the hall in front of the rooms. Great price and service overall!!

Stayed at this hotel during our visit to Ponce. We were lucky enough to stay at a room overlooking Plaza Delicias (main square) where everyone, it seems, likes to hang out. The hotel met our needs: has parking around the corner, pool, cafe( though a bit pricey for breakfast items). if ambient neighborhood noise bothers you, you might request for...

It's in a great location right on the main square. Overall the rooms could use some sprucing up, but it was clean and safe. We ended up at the rooftop bar that night and really enjoyed that. Would stay here again next time I'm in Ponce.

The Hotel Melia in Ponce is ideally located in the center of the city; across the street from the historic Firehouse Station with its colorful façade. It's within walking distance to a variety of restaurants. It hosts a lovely café facing the pool and indoor patio where exceptional Puerto Rican coffee is served, plus a roof top bar and restaurant....

You can tell the hotel has long past it's glory days. Pity because it has great potential for restoring. The rooms are fair and relatively clean but it needs a big investment. There is a small cafeteria style restaurant if you dare call it that!

Excellent customer service:) Basic and comfortable rooms...very clean!. Located in the heart of Ponce. Nice pool, clean areas, green plants in the hallways, nice terrace. The only thing is that the breakfast is not the same anymore (pastelillos de carne and the baked goods, etc.) but the coffee at the cafeteria is pretty good.
