This hotel is very good at screening and cleaning for COVID. They have wonderful front office staff. We enjoyed our room. The location is great to enjoy old San Juan. There is generally loud music until 11pm. It wasn’t a disturbance for us. We enjoyed a night cap every night at the rooftop bar. No food up there yet. But soon coming. The hotel is very clean. Wonderful showers. Great staff. Highly recommend.

Hotel's Favourite
The Decanter Hotel is wonderfully situated in Old San Juan within walking distance to the port, lovely cobbled streets and trendy hot spots in the city. The vistas from the rooftop bar are stunning and the bar team can't be beat. Each room is completely unique and tastefully decorated with upscale decor & modern bathrooms. The front desk team is friendly, upbeat and and just another shining star of everything this hotel has to offer. We will undoubtedly stay at Decanter Hotel again when visiting San Juan.

Beautiful boutique hotel right in the heart of Old San Juan. The hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating. The rooftop bar is fabulous! We arrived at the hotel around 6 pm and our room was great. The atmosphere created with low lighting and Christmas music playing as we arrived was a nice touch.

A perfectly located hotel in Old San Juan to explore the city and its 500 years of history. Many restaurants and shops close by and the people of the city are so friendly. With a rooftop bar that overlooks the city, the Decanter has it all.
