Caleta 64 Apartment
Ranked #12 of 30 San Juan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 January 2011

My family (including 2 teenage girls) had the pleasure of staying at Caleta 64 for 3 days prior to our Christmas cruise. The room was spacious and more than enough room for our family. The location in Old San Juan was perfect. Betsy was extremely helpful to us and looked after any questions or needs that we had. We would stay here again without any hesitation.

This was a superb place to stay in San Juan. In the heart of the city....steps away from San Juan gate. We stayed with our son and his wife and all had room to chill, cook and be together. We will make sure we stay here on our next visit. Our host Betsy was the best.

Betsy and Gustavo were super helpful. If you ever needed them, they were right around the corner at their store with advice. The location of the apartment is absolutely perfect. You couldn't be closer to the history of Old San Juan. The apartment we stayted in (La Puerta) was suuuuper old and charming. It was convenient, it was updated, it was right in the heart of everything when we wanted to be and when we needed privacy we shut the doors and were in complete solitude. Due to the humidity and the age of the place the apartment smells...wet...? But it's nothing terrible. The sheets and towels and everything that counts were fresh and smelled nice :) All the comforts of home but in an awesome location.

Stayed here after reading about it on TA....we stayed in Casablanca. Had no problem checking in early and Betsi and Gustavo are great. Being in an old house w/ such tall ceilings was definitely neat....we even had an inside patio - which I hadn't realized when booking was an actual patio. You can't beat the location - easy to walk to everything and if you want to exercise you can't beat the path out the fort door which is just down the street. There is also a great tapas restaurant on the same street.

We did have some trouble w/ the shower, but, overall I'd recommend these apartments and the washer/dryer were definitely an extra bonus.

Stayed: November 2010

We stayed one night at Caleta 64 and regretted not having more time! The apartment was beautifully decorated, well equipped and very comfortable. Air conditioned with flat screen TVs and a full kitchen with washer and dryer, there wasn't anything this unit didn't have! The fact that it is in the heart of Old San Juan and within walking distance of everything was the icing on the cake. Betsy went out of her way to meet us after a late arrival and answered every question and made suggestions that were very helpful. We will definitely be back!!!!!!

we stayed in the la puerta apartment and absolutely loved it! the place was beautiful. it was completely charming and had so much more character than any hotel. the location is absolutely ideal - a short walk to everything in old san juan, while also on a pretty, quiet street. the owner personnally made sure we found the place (even met us as we were getting out of the taxi) and was full of great tips and info to help us with our stay. the set up of th apartment made it a great place for up to 4 people to stay comfortably, and the nicely equipped kitchen made it easy to save money by making some of our own meals. really cannot say enough good things about this place!

We stayed at Caleta 64 for two nights prior to a Southern Caribbean Cruise and we couldn't be happier with our choice. A great stay always starts with your hosts and you couldn't ask for better ones than Betsy and Gustavo. We let Betsy know ahead of time we'd be arriving in town before the normal check-in time and she was kind enough to have our apartment ready for us when we arrived, so we were able to check-in, relieve ourselves of our luggage and start enjoying Old San Juan right away. When we checked out, Gustavo graciously allowed us to store our luggage by his shop so we were able to spend a few more hours shopping & sight-seeing until it was time for us to leave for the port and board the ship. Both of these gestures by our hosts were greatly appreciated and were the type of thing that would make us want to stay with them again.

Of course even if the hosts are great, it doesn't help if the place you're staying fails to meet your expectations. Fortunately Caleta 64 was all we expected and more! We stayed in the Adoquin apartment and it was every bit as charming as the pics on the website made it look. We loved sitting out on the balcony and watching the activity in Old San Juan. We felt like we were part of the neighborhood, rather than guests in a hotel. And that's the other great thing about Caleta 64- location, location, location! You are literally in the heart of Old San Juan- just up the hill from the San Juan Gate, just down the hill from the San Juan Cathedral and just around the corner from Calle Del Cristo, where many of the fine shops and restuarants are located.

As you can tell from this review, any future trips we take to San Juan would include another stay at Caleta 64 and we have no reservations whatsoever about recommending a stay there to our family & friends or to whoever might happen to read this review.

Thanks again to Betsy and Gustavo for a memorable stay in Old San Juan!
