This is our second visit to villa herencia. both times stayed at h9 , the only double suite room. i missed the daily breakfats(cancelled due to covid restrictions). water and coffee is available. our room had a small pron=blem with the shower head which was fixed quickly. There was s leak of water from the shower floor which required repair, but we temporized it with small towels. The hotel gave us a discount for our troubles. but The hotel is still very nice and away from too much noise . So you can sleep comfortable. It is near la calle de la fortaleza. and San francisco , bustling streets with many shops, restaurants. Old san juan is only 6 square blocks so can be walked comfortably. this hotel is in the middle of everything.

It had a cute little garden up top where you could lounge that was lit up at night. The staff was kind and helpful, and there was a fountain on the main floor which I loved. There was a lock with a code to even get into the hotel which made me feel safe. The bed had a canopy which was very romantic. The location was right in Old San Juan Breakfast was cancelled due to covid which was annoying, but not the hotel's fault.

We visited here as soon as we were fully vaccinated and were very happy with our choice! Ricardo at the front desk was as helpful as could be and the location was the best! This hotel is right next to Hotel Convento and on the square with the cathedral. The pros for this hotel, in our opinion, are as follows: Location! Fabulous architecture Plenty of hot water COVID compliant/awareness Air conditioning worked well Availability of ice for drinks in the common area Staff was extremely helpful Upstairs sundeck/common area was fabulous! Cons: Not quiet due to louvered doors. Loud guests coming back at night sound like they are right in your room! Rooms are small Water pressure is just ok No availability of coffee in the hotel. I understand this is a COVID thing, but it seems like having a pot of coffee available would not be a risk. There is definitely some wear and tear noticeable in the common areas. Overall we would 100% stay here again. We loved how small the hotel is and the personal contact with the staff. We walked everywhere with no problem and felt like it was a wonderful spot to enjoy the few days we had in Old San Juan.

This hotel was great from the beginning to end! Ricardo at the front desk was a total professional and so helpful. This was our first visit to Puerto Rico and he was so knowledgeable of all the main attractions in the area. The room we got was a king in the first floor and the bed is very comfortable and the entire room is very clean👌🏻 The bathroom area was a little small for both us to shower together but the large king side bed made up for it. The room also has an air purifier, and ac unit, along with a little desk area if you want to get some work done ✅ Lastly the roof top terrace hot tub was perfect last night as we had it all to ourselves. Local restaurants, bars, and boutiques all walking distances along with all the historic sites. Bring the most comfortable walking shoes because there is a lot to see. Get your ice for in-room cocktails from front desk before 5pm, the ice machine is not accessible.

We have stayed at Villa Herencia twice. Definitely get one of the sun deck suites if available. H9 has two bedrooms and a small sitting area. Relaxing on the terrace at night is great after a day of exploring PR. Villa Herencia is very quiet and clean and relaxing. Very nice open air spaces. And always smells really good, for what that’s worth. :) great location away from traffic and cruise passengers. we wouldn’t stay anywhere else in old San Juan.
