We came for our honeymoon and the hotel was EXACTLY like the photos online. Within walking distance to many shops, places to eat, and historic landmarks. If you have a rental, their sister company offers parking for $20/day for Villa Herencia guests. The continental breakfast included with the stay was light, yet filling.

Had 3 nights pre Cruise in this charming property in the old part of San Juan. We had a comfort king room which had a huge bed, even wider than our NZ super king! It did leave little room surrounding it for 'operational' purposes but we soon got used to it. Continued Breakfast is included served in an antique dining...

I booked our one night pre cruise stay at Villa Herencia for October back in February and also PAID for it at that time. After reading all the reviews I was very excited to stay here so we would be off the beaten path but yet a close walk to shopping. I read one review that left me a little...

When my fiance and I came to Puerto Rico, we wanted to stay somewhere that FELT like we were in Puerto Rico (not some generic hotel), and this little gem right in the heart of old town was definitely that. We really enjoyed our stay, but I wouldn't recommend it for everyone. One of the biggest pros is the locations....

Discretely tucked away right in the middle of everywhere you want to be in Old San Juan, an inconspicuous little door opens up into a beautiful, magical, private boutique hotel par excellence! With four rooms on the ground floor encircling an open air courtyard, and four more upstairs on the garden terrace, this place is designed for serenity and atmosphere....

Ok, let's get the negatives - the rooms are small but for what is lacked in space, is made up for by service and a beautiful property. We had an issue where the shower head did not release strong enough water pressure but it was addressed immediately by Rafael and the shower head was replaced. The property is so unique...

We stayed here two days it was amazing, I love the ambience the staff was super nice, breakfast good but simple. Near everything you would want to do in old San Juan.

I had a confirmed reservation at this property but it was not honored. I was informed my room was not ready upon arrival (it was before the check-in time so to be expected). When I called to see if the room was ready I was told they actually had no rooms available. They had overbooked and decided not to honor...
