“Ballaja was just right.”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

We stayed with our 2 kids. Our apartment was great for a family of 4. Clean and comfortable, on a very pretty and historic street. So much nicer than staying in a hotel room. We loved wandering through Old San Juan. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Ballaja has a separate bedroom, and 2 pullouts in the family room. Great for families.

We really enjoyed our stay at Caleta 64. The apartment was very clean and well stocked. Beds were very comfortable. Betsy met us when we arrived and gave restaurant recommendations, All within walking distance and were excellent. There are many sites to see also within walking distance. Betsy was able to answer text messages during our stay which was very helpful. We will definitely be returning!

This place is amazing it's in the heart of Old San Juan.The apartment is clean and comfortable full kitchen with washer and dryer.The best location ever restaurants and shopping right at your doorstep.The gate to Old San Juan is right at the end of the street with access to a beautiful ocean walk and you can walk to everything in town from this location including the forts which is a must see. The host Betsy is amazing and the nicest person you will ever meet.We checked in late at 11pm and she met us at the apartment showed us everthing and went over the map of Old San Juan with us and gave directions and suggestions of where to go and what to see.Her and husband own a store right around the corner from the apartment so anytime we needed anything or had quedtions we just stop by the store to talk to her and she was always helpful and gracious. We will always stay at Caleta apartments when we come to Puerto Rico.

Betsy and her husband were so accommodating and easy to work with from the time we booked the apartment until check out. After we arrived, Betsy spent 15 minutes going over a local map, showing us the apartment and answering any questions we had. She even gave us her cell number so we were able to text her throughout our stay if we had additional questions. So helpful!

The apartment is gorgeous, very San Juan and is in a perfect location. It's half a block from El Convento, down the street from the cathedral, around the block from Betsy's store, one block from one of the best coffee vendors, one block from the red gate and two blocks from a full-service grocery store.

You can cook anything in the kitchen if you want to, but honestly there are dozens of authentic restaurants within walking distance why would you want to eat in? At night you can hear the gentle sounds of local musicians in the park and the singing in the cathedral. You can open the two front doors onto this beautiful street and hear all of the sounds. It was intoxicating to be in the middle of such beauty, warmth and history.

Let's talk about the parking. If you rent a car, get a compact one as it will be easier to park on the streets. Don't plan on getting a space in front of the apartment unless you happen to be extremely lucky (like we were on day one), but there is public parking for just $6 a day a short 4 - 5 blocks away. No worries, just double park in front of the apartment, unload your bags and then go park. Or take a taxi. This city is easy enough to walk around day or night.

For the money you will never find a better apartment in this prime location. Thank you!

Room Tip: La Puerta can accommodate four people - two upstairs in the loft bedroom and two in the living room...

We stayed in the Adoquin room, and couldn't have been happier with our experience. Betsy was so easy to work with and available for anything we needed. The room was incredibility beautiful, and the porch overlooked a stunning street that had little traffic. The full kitchen made cooking a great experience, and having the washer and dryer was really handy. We will definitely be staying here again next time we are in OSJ!

We stayed for two nights in the front top floor apartment (I think it's the Algonquin, but I can't remember). It was exactly what we wanted - clean, well located, and made us feel a bit more "local". Checking in was easy, we found street parking in old San Juan and then just used our feet to get around the area. There are tons of great restaurants nearby and old San Juan itself is so beautiful and lively. The front balcony on the apartment was perfect for enjoying a beer between our day plans and a late dinner. Overall, a wonderful stay!

We stayed in the "Casablanca" unit on the first floor of Caleta 64, with its traditional interior courtyard -- what a treat to hear the rain showers and the faint music of street musicians coming from the courtyard. I loved the experience, and the two nights we spent here were quiet, very private, and comfortable. However, I don't know if this particular unit would be comfortable for a full week, since it's a bit dark and damp, due to rain and some plumbing problems. The owners have created beauty in this space, though, which is located on an intimate side street with the loveliest small park in Old San Juan, mature trees, historic properties.
