We stayed here for one night with another couple, on our way to a villa near the rain forest. Upon arrival we immediately said we wished we had planned to stay longer! The hotel is lovely, over 300 years old with period pieces but updated with very comfortable beds, linens and bath. Very comfortable and romantic. Management (Chris) was very...

We stayed here 2 days prior to our cruise. It was the perfect location to walk to everything in Old San Juan. The rooms are small but cozy and has everything you need. The staff was very attentive and gave great suggestions for places to eat and see while we were there. I would stay there again anytime.

A small and cozy hotel perfectly situated in Old Town San Juan. Very nice rooms with high ceilings, all individually styled with old furniture. A very comfortable rooftop terrace with chairs, tables and sunbeds where one can relax in the sun. Very serviceminded staff that will help you with restaurant recommendations and tickets to various attractions. Complimentary breakfast and free...

Loved this place!! It was so unique and perfect for us. Our room was gorgeous, high ceilings, very clean and comfortable, very nice decor by local artists I think. It felt old world but had nice modern touches. We didn't have a window because of how the buildings are build in Old San Juan but we didn't miss it all...

We spent one night at Villa Herencia and really enjoyed it! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and the location was wonderfully central and easy to get pretty much anywhere in Old San Juan. Would definitely stay there again if we ever go back to osj.

We loved this hotel and though it was an especially good value. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms on the ground floor. (Another review mentioned it had no window which is true.) We loved the quaint architecture and unique decor. There is a beautiful courtyard on the ground floor with a fountain. Upstairs there is a roof deck...

My wife and I stayed for two nights at the Villa Herencia, in the heart of old San Juan. This hotel has about nine guest rooms, each individually furnished with antiques that give a warm, authentic feel to the property. We stayed in room H9, one of the two upstairs rooms. These two rooms are not adjacent but are across...

We stayed for 2 nights in January prior to a cruise in this lovely small hotel. Loved the Spanish styled decor and rooms, and the individual breakfast served on a silver tray! Coffee/tea throughout the day and staff very helpful with any restaurant or sightseeing advice. Comfy bed, large shower {for 2}. Didn't get time to use the sun terrace....

The only problem is the roof is leaking water. So the floor on one side of our bed was wet. The staff was great, location is great, and the breakfast serving is great too. I wish we could stay a few more days!
