This was a last minute trip, and Melissa at the front desk made sure it was absolutely perfect. My room was actually a spacious apartment with a full kitchen (the perfect place to eat their scrumptious breakfast!), four juliette balconies, comfortable beds, big closets, large bathrooms and fantastic showers. The rooftop terrace (another excellent place to enjoy a meal/cocktails) has an infinity pool overlooking Old San Juan.. simply gorgeous.
Melissa recommended and reserved day excursions to Culebra and El Yunque.. and also recommended fantastic restaurants and not-to-be missed points of interest in the area.
Beautiful, cozy, comfortable and ideally located property plus wonderful staff (Melissa, Franklin, Jessica, thank you!) = truly wonderful vacation.

Room Tip: My apartment suite in the main building was spectacular.

I highly recommend this place especially for a nice long weekend. It's perfectly located in Old San Juan and close to great bars and restaurants while somewhat removed from the cruise ship crowd closer down towards the docks. prices are very reasonable and the rooms are beautiful and have a lot of old world charm, if you get a room with a balcony even better. Very helpful front desk staff too and awesome breakfast

We had two rooms for our family over the holidays. The owners and staff were all incredible. They made us all feel so welcome, like we were part of the family. The manager, Franklin, had excellent suggestions for things to do, where to shop, and restaurants, plus he makes a great cappucino.

The location is great, on a quiet street, just a couple of blocks up the hill to museums and the old fort, and a couple of blocks down the hill to the square for groceries and shopping. The rooms and kitchens are all really great. The rooftop deck has fantastic views of the harbor and we really enjoyed relaxing with a glass of wine there in the evenings.

When we go back to San Juan, we will definitely stay here again!

Planned cruise out of San Juan, but booking hotel for few days AFTER cruise was held off till last. Why? Bc there were just too many hotels/resorts/ in the area. Searched & searched & finallllly decided on La Terraza. OMG, did I do good! From moment of booking, Franklin, the GM, kept in touch w/me, helping me to understand the process, etc.
It is difficult to explain the facility...it is Old San Juan, now mixing w/the new. It is right in the middle of Old San Juan, complete with cobble stone streets...a ton+ of charm. Technically, it's B& B, but w/acquisition of bldg. next door, it's gonna be awesome! Renovations are underway & we actually stayed in suite in new section, but not without minor problems. Hubby used to suites of the Las Vegas category, say pent house @ the Cosmo, so he had some problem with the "oldness" of the facility, but think I have convinced him of its charm; come on now, it's not America! Construction starts at 8am, & there is lots of saw dust & noise, BUT we are early risers. Breakfast is served daily DOWNSTAIRS, of fresh fruit, juice, bread, pastry, local cheese, & honey baked ham. Your room is cleaned daily, & the staff is fabulous!!! New section has very modern bathroom (so American), & VERY comfy bed. We were in room 323, w/balcony overlooking bay ( not on bay, but visible). There is fabuloso rooftop deck, now complete w/small pool, which proves very rewarding at end of long day; bar up top will be opening soon, but for now you do have to furnish your own alcohol.
Don't hesitate...if you want great stay w/lots of charm, this is your place. Learn about the trolley system (totally free) from front desk, & you can get around all over the city.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE PLACE!!!

Room Tip: Stay in back, so there is no road noise.

We recently traveled to Puerto Rico to celebrate our son's birthday among family & friends. Our son has severe food allergies and we were looking for a hotel equipped with at least a kitchenette. Instead, we found this jewel in the heart of Old San Juan! La Terraza Hotel is a beautifully renovated old spanish style building filled with amenities and charm. We stayed 4 nights in a 2 room suite, equipped with a full kitchen, living and dining area. We were able to prepare our meals safely and even invited friends to share them with us. For anyone traveling with food allergies or any dietary restrictions and in need of preparing meals, this is definitely the place for you. It is located walking distance from a grocery store, a pharmacy and discount store. The staff is amazing and welcoming.
At greeting, they sit with you and give you a map of Old San Juan and point out several points of interest. After a full day of exploring all of Old San Juan's attractions, you may sit, relax & enjoy the breeze in the terrace and even go into their infinity pool.
Complementary breakfast is either taken to your room or you may enjoy it in the dining area in the lobby. Their coffee is also an excellent treat!
We can't wait to our next trip and will definitely stay at La Terraza Hotel again.

It was our first trip to Old San Juan and we wanted to stay at a B&B type hotel and we were amazed with the property, service and food! The staff was friendly, attentive and the room was amazing! We stayed for 3 nights before our cruise and 2 nights after our cruise. Franklin and his staff are wonderful! We had the opportunity to stay over Valentine's day and when we returned to our room after dinner we found chocolate dipped strawberries and a bottle of Rose' champagne. Wow! More than we would have ever expected! You need to check out the roof! With the swimming pool and showers and plenty of room to sun or soak, it's the perfect place to see the city and enjoy the view. If you want a large hotel with 1000 rooms, this is not for you, but if you want an amazing experience with a friendly staff and wonderful accommodations and about 24 rooms, this is the place!
We'll be back!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights last week. Throughout the stay I was strongly impressed by how much the staff seemed to care that we enjoyed our stay and had everything we wanted. The rooms were beautiful - centrally located in the old city. The entire stay reminded me of the small, family owned hotels that are so common in Europe, and their equal seldom met in the US,
