“Architecturally interesting”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

We stayed two nights in the first floor apartment, "Casablanca," and spent a good amount of time just talking about its charming peculiarities. The apartment was open to the sky so that when it rained, which it did several times, the rain came down into a central bricked court. The protected rooms -- kitchen, bedroom, living room -- were arrayed around this open area. High ceilings throughout...the amazing four or five story central court -- but no actual windows. So if you like such things you're going to like this. We did, but I could imagine getting tired of it after a while. And the rain did make for a musty smell throughout the apartment.

A great location right in the middle of Old San Juan. Some problems with the plumbing. But still and all a good experience.

Our trip just completed was an amazing experience. Our second visit for the San Sebastian festival and this location was perfect. Could participate in all the activites yet have a quiet retreat. Three people, worked perfectly could have easily had the fourth. The open courtyard was our bonus. We had a friend who came cooked Puertian Rico dishes for us a couple of times so the kitchen was perfect too. Well furnished with dishes, pans, etc. Besty was the ultimate "landlady" and we fell in love with her young children.

Room Tip: Check your ability for steps.

We were two couples wanting a kitchen and two separate bedrooms. We reserved the Aldoquin, thinking that the word "Loft" indicated a separate room from the main bedroom. It was our error and so Betsy showed us the "Casa Blanca" downstairs which provided us with a kitchen, a bedroom with a full bath, and a living area with a couch that made into a comfortable bed and had its own small bathroom with a toilet and sink. In the middle is a patio with attractive plants completely open to the sun or rain.

The living room can be completely shut off with doors so in effect we had separate "bedrooms."
Our friends rewarded us with the actual bedroom and they made do with the 2nd "bedroom." The location is just fabulous being only a 1/2 block away from the famous San Juan Gate, the Cathedral, the Convent (now a beautiful hotel) and a only a block away from the Fortaleza which is the governor's home, 2 short blocks to the Plaza de Armas, restaurants, etc.

We loved Old San Juan and appreciated Betsy's willingness to change our apartment, offer advice on where to go and nearby restaurants. We would definitely recommend Caleta 64.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, but the steps are safe. Do you like cats?...lots of them are around outside

We had an enjoyable visit. The apartment was clean, comfortable, beautiful, and everything worked well. The location is great and the owner very friendly and helpful in providing information about the surrounding area. We stayed in Casablanca. The open air courtyard was fun and allowed us to watch the rain and yet stay dry. The beds were comfortable and the showers worked great. Our only minor complaint would be that the light shines in from the hallway (through the window in the door to the apt) so that the person sleeping on the futon has a light shining on them all night long, no matter how you position the futon. Perhaps figuring out a way to cover the window would help. All in all, a great apartment, charming character and features in the building, and a lovely stay. All apts were occupied but the building was peaceful. The area felt very safe. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend Caleta 64. Thank you Betsy for the care you put into these apts!

Room Tip: Casblanca is beautiful and it is fun to have the open courtyard. You can hear the frogs chirping at...

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.

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:-)
