“Old San Juan Charm”

My husband and I recently stayed at the Casa Arana apartment and we are already looking forward to coming back as soon as we can! We absolutely loved it for so many reasons. One reason is for its prime location. It was so nice to be able to walk down the street to get to the market, restaurants and shops. The apartment has a wonderful kitchen, which allowed us to make some of our own meals instead of eating out all the time. Also, there are fabulous restaurants in all directions. We so preferred staying here compared to a hotel or resort because we actually felt like we were living in Puerto Rico. You get to experience the charm and history of Old San Juan through this apartment. Another reason why it was so great was all the space you are getting. We loved being able to have so much room, especially the patio which is the heart of the home. It was way better than being confined to a hotel room. We gladly recommend this apartment to our friends and family or anyone who is looking to experience Old San Juan at its finest!

We stayed at Casa Arana for a week and it was such a pleasure. The location cannot be any more convenient if you are staying in Old San Juan - we were close to EVERYTHING! The venue itself is clean, spacious, and very beautiful in its historic architecture and layout. You really feel like you are somewhere tropical! There is not air condition but do not let that stop you - all the rooms open to a beautiful courtyard and we got a breeze in from there and the numerous fans. Its a true tropical experience - also the owner Luis is so friendly and nice! We loved chatting with him and will definitely stay here again when we find ourselves in San Juan once more.

We found the accommodations in the heart of Old San Juan wonderful. An apartment which opened to the courtyard made the whole place romantic and enchanting. The birds chirped, lovely flower petals floated down around us, it was wonderful. Our hosts really cared whether we had everything we needed and gave us wonderful recommendations for restaurants. I heartily recommend this place.

“The best thing about this apartment is the location!”

This apartment is great for a young couple or a group of friends. The beds are not very comfortable, the mattresses are old and one can feel bumps on it.
The size of the courtyard is excellent and the plants give it a nice touch. The kitchen also has an excellent size.
The one thing I was disappointed with was the bathroom, I thought it would be larger considering the size of the apt. but it was very small and needs an uplift.
If you don't need much comfort when sleeping or showering then this place will be fine.
The location could not be better since it is near City Hall and many important government buildings so it is safe and very close to ALL attractions!
