While waiting to leave on our cruise ship, we decided to spend a night in Old San Juan. We chose The Galleria from pictures on the internet because it looked like an unusual place and not the same American-style hotel. We were not disappointed!! It was more like staying in someone's house instead of a regular hotel.
Since we were in five, we were given the rooftop suite which had a magnificent view and our own terrace! The owner is an artist so she has decorated every room differently and included all her artwork and sculpturing all over the house.
Breakfast was interesting ( included) because it was not a sitdown meal. A wide variety of local fresh fruits and the normal eggs were put out on a buffet in one of the halls and you could help yourself and sit in any of the many living rooms off the entrance hall.
The staff was great and called many places to find us a tour because it was the last minute.
We really felt that we had gone back in time in this quaint bed and breakfast.
I would return to San Juan just to stay in this unique place.
