Mr. Fernando is a nice and helpfull person who will do anything to help and make your staying att the GH as nice as possible. This place is suitable for people on self catering. Puerto Rico is a 3-rd World country (similar to Colombia or Honduras) with New York prices, be advised. Costa, Sweden

We were in old San Juan at another establishment prior to going out to some of the islands nearby. On return Fernando picked us from the airport and gave us a tour of the area known as Ocean Park...

Had a lovely time staying at this small guest house, the owner was friendly and gave us directions, a room upgrade and late check out! Made our stay really easy and we would definitely be back again one day, it's a great area too, close to the beach, bars and shops. Loved the little cat (Lorenza?) too!

“There are rooms without windows...you'll get better ventilation with one. And, not all balconies are created equal; some are definitely larger with a better view.”
