“Comfortable and Quiet - A Total Gem”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Spent the weekend at La Caleta for a friend's wedding across the street at El Convento. The owner Betsy is fantastic and extremely helpful. My incoming flight was delayed but she was happy to wait up late, speak to my cab driver to give directions, and make sure that I was settled in and got there safe. The location couldn't be better and the room was spacious and clean with excellent air conditioners and light. My only complaint would be slow internet. Then again maybe it was the universe telling me not to work on vacation. For the price I'm not sure you can get a better deal.

Our host and hostess were gracious, accomodating, helpful. We were two doors down from an amazing restaurant with a Flamenco show Friday and Saturday. night. We were down the hill from the Old Cathedral.

Room Tip: Location was excellent.

Spent two days after 5 in Cuelbra Nov 2012 (sorry late in review but great experience). Owner greeted us and gave us great recommendations - totally appreciated. Apartment is mindblowing: sexy, aged, even helped us with our floor remodel in our home (loved the aged brick...seriously aged!) You won't regret booking any room with Caleta 64 (although we really don't want to share this amazing place... book at el convento instead:-)

Room Tip: Even though El Puerto was on the bottom floor we were good with closing the main doors and opening t...

We have traveled to old San Juan multiple times, and frequently stay in El Convento, a beautiful hotel on the square just across the street from Caleta 64. I was nervous about staying here, as was not sure it would meet our needs for PR character coupled with modern amenities and was a bit nervous about a street level entry, from a standpoint of security. No worries! The apt (La Puerta) was very comfortable , and afforded privacy and space not readily available in a hotel. As most guests have commented on previously, the host, Betsy Garcia is most gracious and helpful, and the location is ideal for exploring the old city. We did not cook in the apt (too many interesting places to try in town) so can not attest to functionality of the kitchen, but the sleeping area in the loft worked well, and downstairs, opening the windows wide, sip wine and watch and hear (there was frequently a musician outside) were great. Wi Fi worked well, for anyone who needs to stay connected. We took a cab from the airport, and when we left for a few days at the beach, we had Charlie's car rental pick us up at the corner and transport us to their office to pick up a car. I highly recommend this, as it is much simpler than trying to park a car in Old San Juan, which would be both difficult and pricey.

Great location! We walked everywhere in Old San Juan -- and when our feet gave out, we took the buses that circle the old city. The apartment itself is unique -- our first floor apartment was built around an open courtyard! Convenient small kitchen -- AND a washer and dryer. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

We are an early 30s couple and just stayed there for 3 nights. Excellent location. Walk all over Old San Juan. It is just a block from Paseo del Muro, a walkway where you can see the sunset. We are both artists, and enjoyed photographing and sketching from there. We stayed on the first floor, but the name escapes me. Not Casablanca. It was the front room and had a loft bedroom. Very romantic and whimsical to open the doors right up to the street. It is a side street, so not so noise, but a cent amount of foot traffic. Kitchenette, dining area, living room with daybed, loft bedroom, one full bath (shower only). We would absolutely stay again, and do recommend it to those with children. Other rooms had multiple bedrooms, like the one upstairs with a family of four. We never heard them, and had excellent sleep! Bear in mind that it is an old building. You need to throw toilet paper in the trash (not the toilet, which is common in PR) and the shower is a bit screwy. There is also a weird pipe in that gave off an odor when it rained. Not too unusual for old buildings especially in Old San Juan, but something to consider. Also, the washing machine was leaking, but we were able to use the one in the hallway. Washer/dryer on site is a plus! The room was clean, although the washer kept leaking so navigating the kitchen around the river was interesting. Betsy was very helpful. We didn't have the rental car until our final night there, and she gave us directions within a 5 minute walk for cheap, secure parking. She also told us places where the locals go, as we prefer to go outside our comfort zones and enjoy non-touristy places. Highly recommend this place!

Room Tip: First floor, front room!
