Great location for touring Old San Juan
We mostly enjoyed the loft experience. Communication was great with the host, Vladimir, and Carlos, who let us in, gave good restaurant recommendations, answered any questions we had, and made sure we got fresh towels when we needed them. Wifi was good but sometimes I had to step into the hallway for a text or call to go through. The space could use more lighting, reminding me, at times, of a dark, clammy cave. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed Netflix on occasion. The beautiful bathroom was a treat as well. But for us, the best part was its proximity to everything we wanted to see. Overall, a wonderful week.
Nice condo with everything you need
We stayed for 10 days and were satisfied with the apartment. Everything worked, the bed was comfortable and bathroom was very unique! The only down side is that it can be a little dark so it is necessary to turn on all the lights and/or leave all the shutters open but other than that we were very happy with our stay. Even though it was very close to a busy area of town, there were no noise issues. It is in a great location and close to everything that Old San Juan has to offer. Very easy to get in/and of old San Juan due to the location.
So much time is spent advertising this "soaking tub" and unique space that my fiancé and I were excited by the pictures and potential. However upon arriving we discovered there is absolutely no light in the tub shower area so we went and bought candles, yes you actually need candles. Unfortunately that didnt make a difference because the fancy big tub was broken, it doesn't drain! The owner, with little remorse, informed us it would not be fixed during our weeklong stay and no there would be no compensation. So now we are staying in a windowless room and the big selling feature isn't available to us. On to my next disappointment, make sure you bring your own blanket and pillows because all that is provided is a sheet and two limp pillows. When asked where the rest of the bedding was we were informed that it's a warm climate so we didn't need bedding. Huh? I have stayed in hotels, resorts, and B and B's throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, and the Southern US all of which are warm climates but I have never been denied basic bedding. My fiancé and I were forced to go out and purchase a blanket in Old San Juan. The only complement I can think of is that the kitchen is well appointed and the apartment overall was clean aside from the fruit flies. Plenty of towels were provided however there is no bath mat which is an issue considering the shower head does not stay up you have to keep pushing it back into place so water sprays all over the bathroom. Oh and no mirror over the bathroom sink. When ownership was informed upon arrival that multiple light bulbs were out we were informed the light bulbs that were still working provided enough light. Again, huh? As if all of this was not enough, interactions with ownership made it clear that they consider this a business transaction and not opening up their home to guests.
Wonderful and quiet space
This is a wonderful and quiet space that can act as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of Old San Juan. All of the appliances are new and work wonderfully. The shower/bath is beautiful, as well. A less than 5 minute walk from everything you could want in Old San Juan, and a roughly 15 minute drive to San Juan. The property owner was also helpful and responsive whenever we had an issue. Street parking and parking garages are both available, too. Would highly recommend.
Good location - bad service
We arrived very late at night which they knew. We had a horrible time getting a hold of someone to come and open up the place and give us keys. It was listed as non-smoking but it reeked of cigarettes. We contacted the owner and he said, "open the windows" and "I can't be responsible for what people do there". The windows are slots in the door which goes to a hallway not fresh air. We keep fans on and doors open whenever we were there but it hit you when you came back. The owner said he would send someone over to clean things but never did. We payed to wash the bedding and towels which there it is not cheap. There was nothing else available or we would have left. It is his "responsibility" and should keep peoples deposit if they smoked and have it cleaned. We enjoyed Puerto Rico very much but hated coming back to the smell.
It was excellent. Very cozy & close to everything!
It was a great space. No loud people around. Felt safe. In the middle of everything. They left us with extra toilet paper, sheets, towels everything. Excellent place to stay
This loft is located in the heart of Old San Juan. Everything is accessible by foot, no need for public transportation! However, if you do want to venture out to other parts of San Juan there is a taxi stand near by as well as the bus terminal. Shops, bars, cafes, restaurants, museums, beautiful historical sites and the port are a cobblestone away!
