1 bedroom/1bathroom apartment in excellent condition. Spacious, quiet, comfortable and safe. Pleasant cross breeze due to layout. The apartment has a balcony with a spectacular view of the San Juan harbor with El Yunque in the background. Located at La Puntilla, it is just steps away from the 'Paseo de La Princesa' promenade, the Governor's mansion and all other monuments and historical points of interest in the old city. The apartment is within walking distance of all restaurants, bars, boutiques, grocery stores, etc. in Old San Juan.

Conveniently located near the bus terminal, a secure parking lot, and a ferry that will take you across the San Juan bay to Cataño where you can visit the Bacardi Rum Factory. The bedroom has AC. It also has a beautiful view of the San Juan Harbor. The bed was updated to a queen size frame and mattress in August, 2015. Please note, the apartment has two balconies. THE APARTMENT IS ON THE FOURTH FLOOR. THERE IS NO ELEVATOR. The rates listed on FlipKey are for parties of 2. However, we can make exceptions for parties of 3. An additional $20/night is included for an additional person. The nightly rate will increase to $200/night during Carnival/Las Fiestas de San Sebastian (usually the third weekend of January: Thurs-Sun) and the Security Deposit will be $200. A $30 fee will be charged for check-in between 6pm-9am. Please contact me directly for monthly rates.More

Nice, clean, friendly but not a whole lotta air conditioning, which is common in Puerto Rico. The unit is located in the bedroom and takes a while to cool the entire condo. Great to have shopping, restaurants and the pier in walking distance.More

Thank you for your review! Unfortunately, the AC in the bedroom is not meant to cool the entire apartment. We find that if you leave the windows and balcony doors open when it is not raining, there is a very nice cross breeze that comes...More

About the neighbourhood
Old San Juan has a very vibrant night life. There are a wide variety of restaurants and bars to choose from which stay open relatively late. Some streets in Old San Juan tend to be noisy because of this, but La Puntilla is located on a quiet, securely guarded dead-end street which allows for restful nights. Other city beaches such as Condado Beach, Ocean Park and Isla Verde are about a 15 minute drive and are also accessible by bus. Enjoy Puerto Rico's bounty of natural wonders all within driving distance of Old San Juan, such as El Yunque National Rain Forest where you will find many hiking trails and waterfalls; Puerto Rico's caves, Las Cuevas de Camuy, one of the largest cave systems in the world (tours are available); and much, much more.
