Reviewed 26 May 2015

Villa Herencia is absolutely beautiful - the common areas, my room, the roof deck. It is not a high-end, luxurious hotel but its charm, decor, and staff make up for it. My room was on the ground floor and quite dark and while it was possible to open windows I would have lost privacy. It didn't bother me too much,...

An interesting place. Our room had no window, was in the Spanish Colonial style (in fact it was probably built IN the Spanish colonial period!), and you can't ask for a greater location, in the heart of Old San Juan near the cathedral. That said the room was tiny, without space to even store our suitcases. Limited storage for clothes...

Dear Den - Thank you so much for your great review! Indeed, the Villa dates to 1771 and the space and location provided are just what was planned for in that Colonial Era. We have built some efficient closets in the smallest rooms so you feel a little more space while taking advantage of every corner. We hope you visit...

This hotel B&B was not what I expected. I was pleased with the room and roof top terrace with the claw footed bath tubs to cool off after a hot PR sun. The breakfast was enough to get you started but not a full meal. My complaint no hot water, with that being said the water was cool in the...

We stayed at the Villa Herencia in March for two nights and simply loved it! It was very hard to leave such a beautiful inn with charm at every turn and is so beautiful. The rooms are a bit small and decorated in a lovely way. The property is over three hundred years old and an old convent - so...

Dear Sojourner2276, We are absolutely taken away by your review! We strive to maintain the authenticity of this XVII Century Villa while improving it with modern amenities for your comfort and enjoyment. Since we do not advertise very little people know about our existence which makes it very private. We host many family groups as the Villa has 8 rooms,...
