Stayed here for two nights before a cruise. Great for taking the M3 bus (50 cents, no change given) to old San Juan bus station...where you can get on the free white trolly's that take you all over old San Juan. Folks on the bus were friendly and helpful. Old San Juan's small streets and forts are wonderful!
Rooms were clean and large and the beds great. The rennovation must be complete----as rooms were pleasant.
I liked being in a real neighborhood of Old San Juan---visiting the restaurants, drug stores, and grocery stores. Again, people were pleasant and helpful. More so than "back home."
Downsides---stay away from any room ending in 01---(101 and up) for those rooms are right next to the eleavator. And when we were there....there was a party going on in the room down the hall with people yelling each others names for two hours. That can happen anywhere....but being by the eleavator must have been a drag. Gettin a room at the end of the hall might be a good idea.
There are beggers in the area, but they don't persist and I didn't feel threatened or scared. I went to the stores a block down from the hotel, but I woudn't walk around there or old San Juan (and many places in the USA) by myself after 9:00 pm either.More
