This is our second stay...first time unfortunately the courtyard was completely under construction. That area is so beautiful and so we enjoyed seeing it completed.

The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful and more charm that you can handle...you really feel like you are somewhere...

You are in the heart of downtown old San Juan. Walking distance to pretty much everything: shopping, restaurants, historical monuments. The natives are helpful and very friendly. The hotel has restaurants breakfast, lunch and dinner and a great bar in the evening for drinks and appetizers. The staff very friendly.

El Convento was just what I was looking for while staying in Old San Juan. Perfection. Loved, loved the rustic and historical feeling that is so well kept! The patio/courtyard is so beautiful and it's just perfection to enjoy breakfast there. Loved also the rooftop terrace. Plus for the complimentary wine & cheese service - which you can enjoy while...
