Editorial review:

Hotel El Convento is now a gorgeous hotel with an incredible atmosphere. It's within walk distance of restaurants and shops. The rooms are comfortable and have high ceilings, there's champagne sangria served in the courtyard, and a Jacuzzi up on the roof with views of the city.

    This hotel was central in the Old Town and it was easy to walk to anything.

    It was a wee expensive when you added on the taxes. Taxes are crazy. On a 200 room the taxes were practically one third of that.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Our objective was to explore as much of Old San Juan as we could over a 24 hour period. El Convento was perfectly located right in the middle of everything, which kept all of the sights, restaurants, etc. that we wanted to visit within walking distance.

    - The Hotel is so unique and dramatic looking - The rooms offer an outstanding climate control system that seals out humidity. Wonderful!!

    We stayed during the courtyard renovation and it was disruptive, but we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Old San Juan.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    This hotel is a fantastic experience. The location is Old San Juan is unbeatable. The staff is always ready to help - with arrangements, any special needs, whatever. The rooms are comfortable and immaculate with chocolates on the pillow at turn-down time and classical music on the Bose radio. Great Puerto Rican coffee freshly brewed 24 hours a day for enjoyment on the veranda; complimentary wine and cheese every evening. Good restaurants - a great plus if you're tired after a day of historical sightseeing and shopping. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough!

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Location in San Juan and charm of 360 year old convent converted to a hotel. Also front desk service and porters were excellent. We stayed two nights: on the 12th and also on the 18th of September on route to Dominica.

    The food was really poorly prepared and served - not nearly up to the standard of the rest of the hotel.

  • Single

    The waitress in the cafe where we ate lunch. The wine hour

    The front desk recommendation as to place for dinner. Also, being elderly and using a cane I would have appreciated bellhop service. None was provided either arriving or leaving.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The reception and accomodations both for the room and helpfullness of the staff

    Our room was too dark. (room # 103. I suggest covering the clear glass window panes with stick on frosting or spray frosting so that the louvered doors can remain open. If a view is desired simply open the outer doors.

    The Hotel El Convento is a mystical, magical facility transporting you back to a different era. There is no where else quite like it.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    El Convento is Puerto Rico.....full of charm, history and made for romance!

    The food is not so good at the hotel....I Ordered a vegetable plate and it was mostly garlic...? But Old San Juan has fabulous restaurants.....so you won't be hungry.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    It is a lovely hotel with a great location for visiting the many interesting attractions in Old San Juan and accessing many good restaurants on foot. The manager's nightly wine and cheese hour was a delight! It is an attractive hotel with a helpful and friendly staff. TOur room was comfortable and clean.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    I thought this was an elegant hotel in a terrific location. The evening wine and cheese reception was super. The room couldn't have been better appointed and was extremely comfortable. I would go back, indeed, I hope to go back. Caribbean Eggs Benedict (breakfast menu) is the best ever!

    A little pricey!

  • Couple
    8.8

    Our room was beautiful. There were many conveniences -- it was truly a luxury experience. We loved the 24 hour pool and outdoor jacuzzi access, and the wine hour in the evening was a nice touch.

    My husband woke up with some bites that look like bedbug bites (three right in a line, and two in a line in another spot) which left us concerned.

    Beautiful hotel in a great location in Old San Juan. Quiet. Nice wine and cheese hour. Only had one night but it was wonderful

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Historic design, beautiful bed linens and towels, location on a quiet park.

    Check in people were charming, attractive, and helpful and also acted as concierges...but not quite as knowledgable as they could have been ... and sent me out to dinner to a restaurant that was closed, and recommended guides who were b level. Since there is quite a hefty "hotel tariff" added to the room bill each day, one expects top flight service of them, - though the hotel is excellent in every other way.
