I loved the property as it was in a central location close to breakfast places, Museums, restaurants, beach and other sightseeing places. Website is not clear that building is divided in 2. There is 412 and 413. 412 has rooms that face the ocean. 413 faces the city. Same day of arrival at 2 am with my flight at 5 am they sent me email telling me I would be in 413. No option to select 412. Check in is done at a hotel down the street not far from building. That was not an issue and check in was easy. Room was amazing and AC super cold enough to cool whole room plus living room and kitchen. I was able to connect TV to wifi to use Youtube but there is no regular TV with movies unless you add your netflix, amazon prime etc. The room is really really big with a sofa bed as well and balcony. It leaked when it rained but that did not bother me. It is Puerto Rico and it happens when buildings are super old build hundreds of years ago. I was really pleased and would stay there again

This was my 5th time staying at this location. I love the views from this place. But this time the room was very dirty. This is the first time I have experienced this here. The floors were very dirty. The bed had a lot of hair on it i can imagine it eas from the last guest. The TV didn't work. Overall I was disappointed with this stay.

Efficient, Nice Ocean View, Room not so Nice
We stayed in the ocean view apartment and the view was lovely. The apartment building is nicely located in Old San Juan so it is easy to get around. The hotel let us leave our bags after check out, which was nice. There are two ocean view apartments. Only one of them looks like the one in the photos. The one we stayed in hasn't been updated, many of the outlets didn't have covers, the hot water in the bathroom sink didn't work, and the apartment amenities were old and rusty. The AC unit is located in the room with the regular bed, and there is a fan in the 2nd room which has a Murphy Bed, which was hard as a rock. So, only the room with the AC unit stayed cool. The bathroom and shower are tiny. I'm fairly petite and it was difficult for me to move around in the shower comfortably and we used the kitchen sink to brush our teeth because it was difficult to use the one in the bathroom. There is no desk or check in area. You must go to a hotel two blocks down to check in and get your key. We didn't know this and arrived wondering how we would get in the locked building. We called the number, but no answer and left a message and went to lunch. Still no call back, but discovered after reading reviews that we needed to do so. Check in was fine, and they were nice. Communication isn't easy, and for the cost I would expect the room to be in better shape. If you're looking for something easy and nice, look elsewhere. If you're ok on your own and just need a place to sleep it's ok.

Very nice location. From the balcony you have the most beautiful view. However, the people driving around always plays very very loud music, even at 1 am, 2 am. They shouldn’t do that. Anyway, it’s not the property issue and it should be the same anywhere in old San Juan

The place was nice but did not know we where on a third floor and no ramps. Definitely no disabled person access. Power and water were out and room next door was loud with party goers.

Excellent view
