“Super clean and awesome location in Old San Juan!”
Reviewed 11 May 2011

This hotel was super cute-like a boutique. The owner, Juan, made us feel very welcome. The room was clean and the location was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better stay!

The reason we picked this hotel is because of location, we wanted to be in the heart of Old San Juan. Easy to get around with plenty to do. The staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Even looked after our luggage before check-in which gave us opportunity to be out during the day without lugging it around. A nice stay.

My wife & I stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise. It was perfect for what we wanted. We knew we wouldn't have time to see all of san juan and decided to just stay in OSJ. If this is your plan too, this would be the perfect hotel for you. Centrally located right in the center of town walking distance to anything in OSJ. My wife and I must have walked 5 miles in one day. totally doable but the hills in OSJ are a killer!!! LOL Would I want to stay here a week? No, but for 1 or 2 nights it's perfect!

This is a great small hotel in the middle of everything in Old San Juan. It is not fancy and doesn't have a ton of amenities but for the price it can't be beat!

This is a perfect place to be to walk the Old San Juan district. It is close to everything that you could possibly want and the staff are all wonderful. We arrived late and needed something to eat. Edwin directed us to a neighborhood restaurant near the hotel that was just what we needed. We liked it so much that we ate there a second time during our stay.

This was a great choice. We were worried initially that it may be too loud. We got a room in the back and those 2 nights we spent at Hotel Milano we got the best sleep in our Puerto Rico journey. It's centrally located and you can walk around the entire Old San Juan from there. There are also lots of good restaurants, bars, and music places around it (somehow though all that noise doesn't make it to the hotel).

The owner is around and he'll say hi and chat with you if he's got the time. Very friendly person. After meeting the owner I finally understood all the positive thinking and relaxing messages around the hotel. Breakfast on the roof top is OK. Nothing spectacular. If you're used to heavy American breakfasts probably you should go somewhere else.

All the staff is friendly and will try to help you. When we were there the person at check-in helped us book a tour to El Yunque with a local company (perfect tour with Manuel as the driver).

The rooms are small and nothing fancy, but clean and OK if you're planning to spend a lot of time in the rooms. Whenever we'll make it back to San Juan, we'll definitely stay here again.

We chose Milano to overnight before flying to Tortola and didn't want to leave. The hotel was the perfect location for OSJ. We walked to the fort twice and around the city. Everyone from the maid to the front desk was very friendly. My room was small, but I knew that when I booked because I was on a budget. I was very happy to spend money with these people. We will be back!!
