We spent 3 nights here. The hotel is adorable. The rooms are exceptionally well decorated and furnished. The rooftop pool is small but adequate to have a splash in after a day of tromping around a city in the tropics. The bar is good but pricey. Since the rooms have small fridges in them, I would recommend picking up a...

If you tried to conjure up a hotel that would complement your visit to Old San Juan, you would probably invent something exactly like the Hotel El Convento. It was the perfect place to stay. Built in an old convent, it is exquisitely appointed and beautifully run. The whole building brims with history and atmosphere. The common areas are warm...

We had a wonderful junior suite arranged by Sandra. She was so helpful and arranged a proposal for us for future group travel. The hotel has maintained the authentic convent structure from hundreds of years ago.

This was our best night in our stay in Puerto Rico. The room was fantastic. Extremely charming. It is an old convent converted into a charming hotel. The staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful. The hotel is adjacent to its sister church which is an old san juan landmark. It is just steps away from all the fantastic shops...

Really nice hotel located perfectly in old San Juan. The 2-bed room was big, newly renovated and the bathroom was really nice and clean. Also very nice with the included evening wine-and-cheese for all the guests every night.

A boutique hotel with a nice courtyard in San Juan. The rooms were clean and comfortable. This hotel is located close to many restaurants, Governor's mansion, Church and museums. The food in the courtyard restaurant was good but the service was very slow.

Visited with a friend for four nights and stayed in a room with two queen beds. We were on the second floor, overlooking the square and the church. We expected the room to be smaller than it was, given the reviews, so we were pleasantly surprised. Beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was fine for two of us. Water...

I wanted to stay in Old San Juan and love historic properties. The public areas are beautiful. The rooms are a bit small but nicely appointed. We enjoyed breakfast in the courtyard and dinner in the tapas bar. We loved watching the sunset from the roof deck during the complimentary wine and cheese hour and the lounge with fresh fruit,...
