On our trip back home from the BVI our flight out of San Juan was cancelled due to a snowstorm back east. We e dead up in a old San Juan for 4 nights at the Gallery Inn. Words do not do this place justice. If you like adventure, meeting new people, art and music this is the place for...

Unlike anywhere else, this place and the staff are phenomenal. I loved the art everywhere and the sweet nooks. My challenges were mostly because this was a business trip: poor lighting, no desk/chair, scant breakfast served too late for my schedule, etc. Otherwise this Inn is an experience all around!

On a recent trip, we stayed in the Gallery Inn, before and after our Caribbean cruise. We chose the Gallery Inn since we had stayed there before, for one night in 2011. Things have changed since then, and in our view, not for the better. The Good - the property is very well located, across the street from the ocean,...

I loved this place, but it is quirky and has issues. It is like staying in a rundown castle. The artwork and architecture of the building are the draw. The amenities, not to good, like $3 if you want a bottle of water (just arriving being hot and tired a complimentary bottle of water would be nice, I'd rather pay...

Without any hesitation, and comparing it with The Sirenuse in Positano, can I say that The Gallery Inn is my favorite hotel, period. I have stayed there 3 times and each time I am overwhelmed by its natural beauty, Spanish colonial charm and warm staff. Although it is not beachfront, the views down to the Atlantic are stunning. The hotel...

This may not be for everyone. The owner is an artist and collected items for this hotel for 50 years. She put together six 1730 houses in Old San Juan. This hotel is a destination in it's self. Birds all over the courtyard and Parrots loose in the hotel. The hotel weaves and wonders all over the place with items...

This place exceeded all of my expectations. It had culture, decor, and people that I didn't even know I needed in my life. Seriously, huge thank you to Jan, Peter and all the girls. I will be back asap!

My boyfriend and I went to Old San Juan after a week in Rincon. We fell in love immediately! The was room was as had expected with the antique furniture. The service was great! Unfortunately San Juan was experiencing a bad storm with 20 foot swells so leaving the hotel at night was difficult. Luckily Uber was available so we...

We loved the look of the hotel at first glance. The public areas are very cool, and the atmosphere is relaxed. But the rooms are really dirty and bathrooms totally outdated. I tried to take a shower (at 7 in the morning) and there was no warmwater left. Our friends were on their honeymoon, and had booked a double bed....
