Our one night pre-cruise stay was interesting, not bad. Entrance to hotel seems a bit odd, the front glass corporate doors don't really match what is inside. Staff was friendly and helpful when needed.
Due to the three kings holiday the plaza across the way was filled with loud music all evening long so hard to sleep, but we just woke back up and went down to check it out.
This hotel is on the far end of Old San Juan, but quick cab ride from airport and to cruise terminal.
If you are scared of elevators and can't climb stairs don't stay here:) The elevator is very old. My wife wasn't comfortable riding in it so she walked to the 4th floor.
Overall, I would stay here again, but don't if you expect a 5 star experience. If you are laid back and enjoy unique and interesting experiences then this is your cup of tea.
