Great location on a side street in town. Quiet, relaxing hotel. Fun pool for night swimming after a couple cocktails. Stunning decor inside and out. Clean and comfortable.Staff was very easy to work with and answered all our questions.

Located at the town center, this hotel is clean, historic and attended by friendly staff. We came here to attend some business but it is a perfect location for travelers looking to experience daily life in a colonial town in Puerto Rico. Rooms are clean and simple.

First the plus: The hotel is near the historic area of downtown Ponce, Puerto Rico, consisting of buildings and structures with architecture that date to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Therefore, is great to walk around, since it os very lively, both during the day and night. However, the hotel needs serious renovations. The room is not only...

First of all my wife's family and I go to Puerto Rico every five years. Usually at least 12 of us go. We stayed at historic Hotel Melia 5 years ago and we enjoyed our experience. So we came back 5 years later in Dec. 2016. We expected our experience to be even better, based on the website being updated...

One of the oldest hotels in Puerto Rico has seen better days. Frankly, I love it. While the hotel is still grand, continental Americans will find it not up to their standards. Rooms are grand with tremendous tray ceiling and restored old furniture. The bathroom reminds me of some of my favorite puzzle bathrooms in Europe :how do I sit...

No coffee maker in room. No complimentary coffee in entire hotel. We received the wrong room. This was blamed on the out-sourced website...despite receiving an acknowledgment from the HOTEL a day after making the reservation. TV had very bad reception. Problem could not be rectified.

Very pretty building with big outdoors. The rooms are small, but is good. The pool is small, there's a cafeteria besides it. The reception is gorgeous. What's the best of it? The "Parque de Bombas" is right across the street, "La Catedral" and all museums are really close by It's a go go! so come and stay!

The photo's of hotel are deceptive. The property is pretty run down. No hand towels, no wash cloths, just a bath towel. Kleenex dispensor empty when we got there and when we left. A/C works but is terribly loud. Front wall of room was all windows with a curtain. It felt wierd. It is right off of the town center...

The king room had a great view of the park but unfortunately smelled like old cigars and the park weed blowers started at 4:30am. The are better options! Also be aware the restaurant is closed on Sundays🤐
