We stayed in a garden room on the main floor. Being the budget option, it was certainly cave like, although it had so much character, we didn't really mind it. The grounds are really beautiful, pool is great, and staff very helpful and friendly. My husband spoke to the owner (and her parrots) at length. The location is perfect, on...

I spent one night at the Gallery Inn before heading to another part of Puerto Rico. When first walking onto the property, I was already awed. There's so much beauty everywhere you look- from the sculptures, to the birds, to the antiques, to the flora, the whole place is just filled with hidden gems. I was taken up to my...

We have never stayed in a place as unique and eclectic as the Gallery Inn. If you like places that are out of the ordinary, this is for you. Prior to booking I had read some reviews that said the place was dirty. The bottom line is that the hotel is in a building that dates back to the 1500s...

Very interesting hotel with all rooms being different. Lots of great open air gardens to explore and relax in. Lots of steps so be prepared. The pool was very unique and fun to sit in and have a drink at the end of the day.

I booked the Gallery inn because it looked amazing, I´m the kind of person that loves places like that, I saw by the pics that I might struggle with some of the steps and that is why I called the inn before booking to make sure they had rooms at ground level, as I have walking difficulties and was travelling...

I've had only generally positive experiences at the Galeria Inn in Old San Juan. Don't expect a five star hotel but do expect a unique experience that will give you stories to tell years into the future. Celebrated pianists are known to stay at the inn and play the grand piano in one of the (somewhat dusty) parlors at unexpected...
