Reviewed 8 July 2014

This hotel is very basic, very cute and very charming. It does not really offer any amenities other than free Wi-Fi but the amenities is not why you would stay at this hotel. You would stya here for the the price and convenient location. Like I said, it is very charming with an ecclectic Moraccan-esk decor. The terrace gives a great view of the old city and it is located on calle Fortaleza close to great restaurants and other sites. The one negative, in my opinion, is that most rooms don't have windows. It is an older building therefore the interior rooms (most of them) do not have windows. It is also VERY clean and smells really good.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view.

My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Casablanca.

The room was amazing...it was fsacinating being in a building so old yet so modern.

The staff were always ready to make a recommendation or handle any request that we had.

We will undoubtedly stay here when we return to San Juan.

Stopped in this quaint boutique hotel again, and was completely blown away by the mixologist, Tisha, and her amazing concoctions!! Be sure to try the "Cinnamon Tish" or the "Birds and the Bees", they are fantastic creations!! Of course, the hotel itself offers a ton in character and personality. The "hot tub rooftop" is especially cool and different, great views and a great spot to cool off. BUT, even if you're not staying at the hotel, you now have a GREAT reason to stop in the Cafe Americain Bar and have Tish make you one of her best!!! I'll be back in every time I get the chance!

This is the second time we stay at the CasaBlanca Hotel and will be back. We had a 2 night stay including our 10 year old daughter who help me prepare this gift for dad. The hotel has a great ambient, like a moroccan theme but with a casabanca glam; the mvie is always playing. The staff is incredible they are always willing to help and make your stay a magnificent one. The hotel doesn't have an elevator but the staff is available to help you with the luggage. We stay at the 3F and love it. It has a king bed but in addition had a chair that turn into a twin bed, where are daughter slept. We call late at night and they provide everything for us to prepara the bed for her. They help us with selection of local restaurants. In the roof they have this tubs that you can just relax with a glass of wine and look at the Old san Juan view. I love this hotel and I know you will love it too.

My boyfriend and I wrapped up our 10 day vacation in PR with a two night stay at Casablanca Hotel. After staying at many amazing hotels throughout our vacation, we honestly had pretty low expectations for this property--but it ended up being one of the highlights of our trip!

It's conveniently located on Fortaleza Street near shopping and great restaurants. While the street is busy, we didn't hear any of the noise from outside.

The hotel is beautifully decorated, it feels very high end and modern with a Moroccan influence and charming touches. The rooms are small, but the bathrooms are completely updated and the beds are very comfortable. For neat freaks like me, you'll be happy to know the room and overall hotel were SUPER clean.

The only downside was that our room was interior overlooking the lobby. As a light sleeper, I was woken up early by the breakfast noise in the lobby and the sound of people running/talking up the stairs. But we knew this was a possibility when we booked an interior room, just something to keep in mind.

Cynthia at the front desk was extremely helpful in helping us arrange a zip line excursion. She did some research and helped us find the right adventure. Miguel was also great, offering advice on the local bar scene.

Room Tip: There's no elevator, so if possible request a room on a lower floor. For those staying in an int...

I have been in some amazing hotels but this one is hands down easily my favorite. It could be the amazing energy, genuinely friendly staff, and very unique decor that draws you in, but one thing is for certain, you won't want to leave.

If you're headed to San Juan and not too sure where to stay, this is it, you will instantly feel at home.

We stayed one night at the CasaBlanca after vacationing in El Yunque and on Vieques, and we loved it. Great location, rooms were very clean and, particularly after so much time without it, the air conditioning felt wonderful, even COLD! The hotel decor is sort of Moroccan/bohemian, and having the movie CasaBlanca playing on the wall of the bar and on some TVs in the lobby was very cool! Our adult children enjoyed the rooftop bathtubs. The hotel is in the heart of Old San Juan, so you couldn't ask for a better location. We had no problem with the hotel having no elevators.. a small price to pay for being in a beautiful old building. The staff took most of our luggage to our rooms for us, so that was not a worry. Speaking of the staff, they were all very helpful and attentive, especially Miguel, who remembered talking to me 2 months earlier when I made the reservation and had a great sense of humor (we needed two rooms, traveling with adult children, so it was difficult to find a place that could accommodate us all comfortably at a reasonable price).
