The good: great location, good prices, roof deck is okay

The bad: small, dingy rooms; low water pressure; very very loud; our bathroom had a frosted glass door, so that when one of us went to the bathroom at night it lit up the whole room; old towels; shower leaked onto bathroom floor and got the whole place wet; no soap holder shelf in shower; roof deck had dead or dying plants

We got here and they informed us the hot tub was under construction and would be ready "later" but when I asked them to elaborate they only said "later". When it was later after a night of drinking and touring we were informed it "might"be ready tomorrow...but after we checked out. Not happy. Also they don't have an elevator and no bus boys working for tips... Not recommended for groups with multiple bags.

We had tons of fun at this hotel. Stayed for 2 nights on our way to Cuelbra. Careful which side of the hotel you are on bar in the ally gets very, very loud and stays that way very late. Comfortable beds, great location. The bar in the ally unless you are spanish is not much fun. When we checked into the hotel we were told the hot tub was ready and waiting for us but when we go to the roof (which has amazing views) it was drained and stayed that way for our visit. I would stay again

Room Tip: call and ask to be in a room away from the bar.

Gem of a Hotel. Not expensive and in a great part of Old San Juan. Near all the restaurants. Nice Bar/Music Venue downstairs. a 24 hour rooftop with a hot tub. Helpful front desk. Noisy at times, but it didn't bother us. In general Old San Juan is a sleepy place at night. Glad we found this place

If you don't mind being in the center of things -- including above a salsa spot (but they have rooms facing the courtyard which are very quiet) this is the place to be in the PR. For the record, the salsa club (Nuyorican cafe) rocks! They had amazing live bands, and wonderfully experienced dancers to watch. It was tight but not too crowded; I would recommend checking it out!

The hotel showcases great artwork on their walls. It was neat to stay in a hotel/gallery. The rooms had high ceilings and shuttered windows. They were very clean and comfortable, as well as stylish. The staff was incredibly nice. They were happy to make recommendations of local restaurants or things to do. Overall the ambiance was very inviting.

There is a cute roof deck with a hot tub if you want to hang out in the hotel in the evenings. The location is very central ... overall this spot was great and I'd head back any time.

Only caution -- If you want to go to bed at 10 pm or have kids, this is *not* the spot for you! I would imagine it would be very loud and uncomfortable.

Magical place with lots of character. Artistic and tasteful decor together with old detailing of colonial architecture create an incredible charm that transport a traveller into another era. Even the famous noise from the club downstairs can become a part of the ambience and cease being a bother at all. Hot tub on the roof is a cherry on top. Great location, very friendly and helpful staff. The only comment I can make on the negative side is that internet service is irregular and wi-fi is only availabe in the lobby, however the lobby is very beautiful and pleasant.
