For a nice experience with Puerto Rican locals without the glitz and crowds from the Condado and other San Juan tourist areas you must try Dreams Hotel. Located near University of San Juan, Rio Piedras campus the local flavor is in abundance. The management and staff at Dreams Hotel go out of their way to be helpful, from recommending local...

Set in the center of SAN Juan, next to the large University, makes for an interesting place to stay. Surrounded by food as you might expect catering to the young and locals the choices seemed endless. We found none we did not enjoy. The one that was most visited was the little stand ran from the hotel. We would say...

The hotel is tolerable if you're on a budget, however please note it is not in the best location to explore the whole of Puerto Rico unless you have a car!
