What a gem in the middle of a charming city. If you like boutique hotels with charm… This is the hotel for you. The rooms were clean and charming very simple yet with style. We had a balcony that overlooks the streets of San Juan. The staff are wonderful and Juan was extremely helpful. We will definitely be back.

We stayed three nights in 5C. The room was tiny, but there was a lovely seating area just outside our room. The rooftop has old tubs which you can fill to relax in (bring a bathing suit). The other side of the rooftop had seating which we used multiple times to lounge in. But the best thing about this hotel...

We stayed here for two nights. It is located in the heart of San Juan and close to all the sights and night life. Staff was super friendly. The room itself is basic but decent. The only downfalls were the no from the hallway (you could here through the door) and the bathroom. There was 0 counter space, which made...

This is a very charming hotel. You can see the building is older so the rooms are small with higher ceilings. We had a suite with 2 twin beds and 1 queen size bed. They were very comfortable and the linen of great quality. The bathroom was a little too small foe my taste but it worked. The front desk...

A terrific hotel at a very reasonable price. The staff was as helpful as can be. The room was lovely and comfortable. You could walk pretty much everywhere from it and the staff was very helpful with dining recommendations. Parking was nearby and only $5.00 per day.

We stayed here for two nights prior to a cruise to the Southern Caribbean. I was satisfied with the hotel based on what we paid for it, but I do have a couple of knocks on it. First of all, their restaurant was closed because the 3rd party that ran it suddenly closed it down. It would have been nice...

Dear Robert44, Thank you for your review, although with that type of assistance I would have hoped for a 5-star review, just kidding. We are a 3-star hotel after all, but we intend to keep service 5 star, if it means we have to carry your two 50lb suitcases we will, we will go all the way to make your...

The rooms are small, but it's a historical building and that's expected. There is a decent size elevator. Although the building is only 6 floors high so we did take the stairs frequently. We were bummed that the restaurant was in transition, but since the hotel is located in the middle of absolutely everything it wasn't a terrible inconvenience. The...

The rooms are small but clean. The elevator was out of order but the staff hauled our luggage up and down the stairs. After our stay we had to get to the cruise dock but Circofest was keeping a taxi from accessing the hotel. The staff offered to haul our luggage the 10 blocks to the cruise terminal.

CasaBlanca Hotel was perfect for our family of 4. Our 2 bedroom suite was comfortable and clean. The staff was very helpful with all of our questions. The location was ideal and an easy walk to San Felipe Del Morro Fortress. Parking is in a nearby garage with very reasonable rates.
