Reviewed 30 March 2017

The hotel is a very well restored and decorated Spanish colonial house with two levels. There are only 8 rooms but you will feel as if you where in other epoch. The service is excellent and friendly, the hotel is very private, and seldom saw other guests and the hotel was full. They have a good, simple breakfast and has all the amenities like WiFi,etc. The rooms were very clean, dreamy decorated and comfortable. Beautiful vintage furniture. The bath is ample, nice shower and everything worked fine. The TV has limited cable channels and was somewhat small, but who cares. The second level terrace is beautiful and a good area for reading or lounging. There is no restaurant nor bar at the restaurant, but at walking distance you have everything since you are in the heart of the walkable city of old San Juan. Right next to the grand hotel El Convento and next to the cathedral. The hotel has no parking, you have to use the public alternatives nearby which are cheap. The rates are perfect, and for a weekend escapade it has no match. Great for couples or solo. Not recommended for kids or big families.

Room Tip: second level rooms are the suites. the lower rooms vary in size.

We stayed at Villa Herencia for four nights of our week-long vacation in Puerto Rico, and we loved it. It is well situated for walking around Old San Juan, the hotel is a lovely example of Spanish Colonial Architecture, cozy and charming. Beautiful rooftop patio, comfortable beds, a nice breakfast and friendly, accommodating staff round off a perfect city experience. Special thanks to Chris, who was always ready to help with any request, friendly conversation and recommendations for meals and activities.

We stayed here for one night with another couple, on our way to a villa near the rain forest. Upon arrival we immediately said we wished we had planned to stay longer! The hotel is lovely, over 300 years old with period pieces but updated with very comfortable beds, linens and bath. Very comfortable and romantic. Management (Chris) was very helpful and gave us an insight into the history of the hotel. The lobby had the soothing sounds of a waterfall feature. Located in the oldest part of the city and in a safe area, close to everything. it rained during our stay so we could not use the terrace, but we certainly will be back!! definitely recommend.

Room Tip: we had room 5, downstairs, our friends had 7 I think. ours was a bit smaller but very comfortable!

We stayed here 2 days prior to our cruise. It was the perfect location to walk to everything in Old San Juan. The rooms are small but cozy and has everything you need. The staff was very attentive and gave great suggestions for places to eat and see while we were there. I would stay there again anytime.

A small and cozy hotel perfectly situated in Old Town San Juan. Very nice rooms with high ceilings, all individually styled with old furniture. A very comfortable rooftop terrace with chairs, tables and sunbeds where one can relax in the sun. Very serviceminded staff that will help you with restaurant recommendations and tickets to various attractions. Complimentary breakfast and free wi-fi.
