    The staff was wonderful. I fell as I got off the taxi and they took care of me in a wonderful manner. As a solo traveler the experience of falling could have been very frightening and they were absolutely wonderful making sure I was all right and checking on me later during the day. Outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Superb

    The eclectic charm of the place. The building and decor are really splendid. The location in old San Juan is excellent. The selectopn of beers at the Pizza and beer bar are amazing. The food there is also very good. We got the room well under then posted price so it was well worth the money. This a real gem.

    The restaurants for supper were a bit blah but there are plenty of really good restaurants near by.

    The hotel has an amazing history and is an elegant place to stay right in the heart of Old San Juan. We were upgraded to a beautiful room done in great Spanish style. The bed was super comfy. Everything first rate. Lovely wine and cheese happy hour. Tapas restaurant in hotel is the best!

    When we arrived, we were told we would have a room with a bay view but it would have twin beds. For a mature couple this suggestion did not go over well. Fortunately, they upgraded us to a great room right away.

    Superb

    Location and historical presence enhanced by excellent attention to detail. The included manager's nightly wine and snack event and a.m. help-your-self to quality fruit and coffee may add into the room rate, but they were great.

    Water damage - a constant maintenance problem - therefore only a minor issue with us

    Good

    The location was great and the staff were very professional and friendly.

    Despite requesting a room on a higher floor, I was given a room that had no ventilation. There was barely a window which was barred. Room was dark. There were no bedside rugs and the floor was cold. The bathroom has very little vanity space. We checked out after a day. I would not recommend the hotel to anyone.
