nice people, menu was a bit overpriced and a little too exotic for my taste. location is superb to hang out downtown, rooms need a bit of updating but over all it was a nice stay for the price. parking is tight, very tight but there's people there to help you park.

Extremely nice reception, in fact, all staff exceeded friendly, courteous and helpful expectations. Restaurant in day was small but sufficient. Dinner restaurant was open only Friday and Saturday night, closing at 11pm. Rooms were very dated, 1950's dated. Carpets stained and torn, towels & beds as well. Smelled every day of its 100 years being opened. Elevator was a treat!... More

The place was good, simple with basic accommodations. Very original in almost every sense including the elevator and the flooring. It has great views of the city and the nature from the hall in front of the rooms. Great price and service overall!!

The hotel met our needs: has parking around the corner, pool, cafe( though a bit pricey for breakfast items). if ambient neighborhood noise bothers you, you might request for... More

It's in a great location right on the main square. Overall the rooms could use some sprucing up, but it was clean and safe. We ended up at the rooftop bar that night and really enjoyed that. Would stay here again next time I'm in Ponce.
