Inexpensive rooms in Barceloneta, ideal starting point for visiting the city. Sufficient conditions for singles or couples, who do not like to sit at the room all day long. Close to the beach and antique city center.

Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area
can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging
over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each
other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing
games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in
