We stayed at Dreams Hotel for one night after a cruise. The rooms were clean and well kept. The beds were not comfortable and hard to sleep in. The doors were not solid and we're thinking metal. We could hear everyone's conversations in other rooms. Really for the price it's not to bad. We didn't eat the toast for breakfast.

I can't say enough about how friendly and helpful Elena was to my wife and I during our stay at Dreams Hotel. We needed a place to stay in San Juan on each end of our main trip to the island of Culebra. We didn't want to pay the high rates of the tourist hotels near the airport or in...

Among all the hustle of San Juan on a busy one, it is easy to drive by this historic building. DO NOT DRIVE BY! We were looking for an affordable hotel for one night before we flew out early the next morning. We booked this place not having ever been to San Juan before, not knowing the areas, and we...

We really liked our stay in Dreams hotel. The location is in the university district, so not on the beach, not in old San Juan. The area becomes alive in the evenings, the difference is quite startling. We found it fun, talking to the locals, brushing up on our Spanish (make the locals laugh more like). It is a real...

The hotel is in the university district. Don't know if there are many good restaurants close by as we went to old San Juan. The rooms are very clean. Ours had a mini fridge. There is a breakfast, just show up before 9am as they pack it up. The issue we had with the place was the location of our...

I really am thankful for the people who worked there. The home made jam with cinnamon was tasty and the juice was pleasant. The room was nice and clean the only thing I didn't like was that it seemed like someone just showered in the bathroom before we got there. Other people complained about noise at night on here, but...

Don't be dissuaded from booking this hotel by it's distance from Old San Juan. You can catch the train in front of the University (about 3 blocks), ride it to the last stop (Sagrado Corzaon) and catch an express bus there to the piers in Old San Juan. The whole trip should take you no more than about 45 minutes...
