Owner of this property since 1996, having done a full restoration (different than a remodeling). This apartment was closed off in a semi-abandoned state for 10 years before it was bought.
The location of this two bedroom , apartment together with the owners helpful and attentive help and suggestions made our stay successful and comfortable. I particularly enjoyed looking down from the balcony early mornings and watching the city wake up.
I recommend this apartment where location and comfort are needed.
I have been to PR many times and this was my first stay in OSJ. Ramon's apartment is in a great location with live events on the plaza during the weekend. Apartment is large, roomy and comfortable. With the availability to open all doors and windows it really was not necessary to run the AC. It was great staying in OSJ and being close to so many wonderful restaurants and near to all the historical sites. I will definitely stay at Ramon's apartment in future stays in Puerto Rico. Thank you Ramon
Great place. comfortable. Plenty of space. Clean and airy; no need to use the air conditioning at all; there was a nice breeze. Loved being on the Plaza. Very convenient. I would stay here again - any day. Absolutely no complaints at all. Thank you.
Ramon's apartment is an oasis of cool and calm right in the middle of Old San Juan. Very convenient to the monuments, restaurants and shops. It has plenty of space for 4 people, has air conditioning and ceiling fans (we only needed the fans, in February). The bathroom has plenty of hot water and a spacious tub/shower. We cooked breakfast each morning and the kitchen was well equipped. The neighbors are cheerful. The breezy balcony has a nice view. Ramon has provided tourist maps and a magazine, and some interesting coffee table books about PR history and culture. The apartment is quite comfortable.
This was a great stay for us.
-- Fabulous location! walking distance to everything we wanted to see in old san juan; short walk to almost endless array of restaurants; great supermarket right on the plaza.
-- big apartment, clean and very light and airy at the front..the back bedroom was very hot.
-- wonderful balcony, albeit small. Totally enjoyed sitting out on it!~
-- adorably quaint retro fixtures and furnishings! We just ADORED the old dentist chair right in the living area!
-- We loved being right on the plaza. On saturday night we enjoyed listening/watching locals at flamenco dancing and music.
-- Ramon was a fantastic, helpful and attentive host. We loved that he offered lots of helpful info, checked on us and responded quickly to queries. He readily allowed my sister and me to do a super late checkout since we had an evening flight out of san juan. That was a big help.
-- light sleepers may want to bring earplugs. It was tough to sleep with the bustle and noise of the plaza at night. But, that is also to be expected when in the center of it all.
-- if you are elderly or disabled, ask Ramon about the elevator. it was out of service when we were there. We are fit and active middle aged women, so we actually enjoyed the exercise, but the elderly will find it difficult. I know the condo association is working on updating it, but on my next visit i will still use the stairs, fitness nut that i am!
If you are all about location in the center of old San Juan, this is the place!
I rented this historic apartment in Old San Juan for an extended period of approximately 6 weeks. It was simply amazing!! My wife and son still rave about it to their friends. The location is truly unique being one of just a few residences in the central square of OSJ. Being on the 5th floor, I had constant views of street performers, locals mingling, gorgeous sunsets, etc. The apartment has so much old world charm that it felt like something out of a movie. The landlord, Ramon, was so nice and attentive, checking in to make sure everything was just perfect. We will definitely be back!!!
Location, Location, Location: The apartment is located steps away to markets, pharmacies, taxis, restaurants, museums, historic sites, government offices, hotels, cruise ships, nightlife, pubs, theaters, ice cream parlors, jogging trails, tennis and basketball courts, etc. Also, El Convento Hotel, and The Casino, both popular venues for weddings, are just a few blocks away. Enjoy from the balcony free concerts or shows often offered in Plaza de Armas.
