We love this hotel for its location in Old San Juan. On a charming neighborhood close enough to restaurants and shops yet far enough to feel like you are coming home at the end of your day.
The rooms have character, very much old world. As has been mentioned, they tend to be dark and not enough closet space. The bed is comfortable, and the shower is spacious. The bathroom furnishing have character, but some of it tend not to be too functional and wish it can be improved. For example, the mirror above the vanity is set a bit high for someone who is on the shorter side (5'3) and the edges have some design. It makes it a challenge to properly see your face while putting makeup on.
Wifi is fairly good in the room we were in, which was next door to the reception.
There is no in-room safe, which would be nice to have to store valuables while out and about.
The roof top terrace is a nice place to hang out in the late afternoons. We do however missed being able to hang out with the cats from next door. We are cat lovers and were really looking forward to being able to hang out with the friendly kitties like we did when we stayed here a few years ago. It actually was the deciding factor in choosing to stay here again, so this part was a bit disappointing for us.
Overall though, we were happy with our stay.
