The building is 16th century, an Institute of Culture authenticated restoration, approved & licensed by the Tourism dept. We are on the most famous & secure block in Old San Juan, in the middle of the gallery/shopping district surrounded by historic monuments; bustling during the day, and quiet at night.
We are 1 block south of the El Convento Hotel, and the Cathedral de San Juan, 1 block north of the Cristo Chapel, Pigeon Park, and La Fortaleza (the Governor’s Mansion) so there are 2 policemen on our corner 24/7. One block west is the Plaza de Armas, where you'll find cafes, drug stores, grocer, a stop for the free trolleys that go around San Juan, and a taxi stand.
Finding parking in Old San Juan can be challenging. On street parking is free, or there are several pay parking lots within a few blocks. (see map in our large photo#20)
Unless you're planning on exploring the Island, you won't need a car. Old San Juan is only 8 sq. blocks, and we are right in the middle. For local trips there are cabs on the next corner, or you can call one.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

WHERE’S THE BEACH?
Old San Juan is not beachfront, but it is where everything else is. Most people choose to stay in Old San Juan because this is where everyone comes at night, so traffic coming into town then can be a nightmare. It's easier to get in & out of town during the day to go to the beach. That way you can return, shower, maybe take a nap before going out again. Then after dinner, or whatever, you just have to walk a few blocks and you’re home, instead of hassling with traffic & finding a cab.
The nearest blue flag beach is a long walk, or a 5 min cab or bus ride. We have a picture among ours here (#19), There are nearer beaches, just a few blocks away, but Escambron is the nicest. It is a well maintained, free, clean, safe, beautiful beach; the only one with a lifeguard. Unlike the hotel beaches, it gets sun all day, and there are plenty of palms for shade.
The beach is part of a very interesting park with historic battlements & part of the old walls of the city. From the beach you see both forts.
Early mornings the women’s water aerobics group meets there. Very friendly group, you can work out with them for free. There is an outdoor snack bar that also serves drinks cheap, and a reasonable restaurant with outdoor terrace and indoor air-conditioned dining room, serving local food.
You will not find a better beach in San Juan.
Finding parking in Old San Juan can be challenging. On street parking is free, or there are several pay parking lots within a few blocks.

We are 20 min. from the airport, and there are always cabs there to meet each flight. For local trips there are cabs on the next corner, or you can call one. Numbers are programmed into your phone.
