I recently stayed at Posada Colonial and it was a great place for a great price. Located in a quiet neighborhood, close to the beach, restaurants, a supermarket and convenient stores. An easy ride by public bus to "Mi viejo San Juan" located about ten to fifteen minutes away. It is like living in a little apartment with all the... More

The beginning of my booking was unpleasant to say the least. I spent hours combing through listings and narrowed it down to Christianne's down stairs apt. To avoid the stairs. The host was away on vacation and I did not get confirmation in time to book. I re-booked the upstairs apartment and that is where I stood. Eventuall the host... More

I don't normally write reviews but this place had everything we were looking for. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood away from the tourist areas, we fell in love with this cute little apartment. Our flights were delayed several times due to weather and we arrived at 4 am. A friendly neighbor across the street helped us find Shawn and Christiane’s... More

Owners have presented this property accurately. It is an experience in the local community, not a spa or resort. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Being picked up at the airport was so convenient. And, the owner's quick tour of the neighborhood helped us scope out what we wanted to do. The beach is very close as well as a... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Posada Colonial (Upstairs 2 bedroom apartment) April 30-May 5 and had a wonderful time!

We initially booked this apartment for 5 nights, but then our travel plans changed and we could only stay for 3. The apartment has a 5 night minimum stay, but the owners were very accommodating and gave us a full refund. I can't speak to the apartment itself since we ultimately didn't stay there (although based on other reviews and... More

“The back downstairs apt had a table and chairs to sit outside where it really felt like our own place.”

“For two travelers the private room is quiet. If there are more individuals and they are required to sleep on the twin beds near the street, it can get a bit noisy with car traffic and barking dogs. It is a neighborhood and should be expected!”

“Each set of rooms is unique. The bottom back has a terrace which is welcome. Ask to take a peek at the other rooms if they are vacant. It really is worth seeing.”
