Fantastic spot with a Bay view in the heart of Old San Juan

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is as promised. The rooms are large and flooded with light, the AC and appliances work perfectly, the kitchen and bath are fully stocked, and the (gorgeous!) large terrace is a perfect spot for morning coffee (or evening cervezas) while you plan your day walking through Old San Juan! Paloma and her sister Sofia were very receptive and helpful. We had no trouble checking in or out; do note that to get the spectacular rooftop views you have to climb 3 tight flights of stairs... but it's worth every step!

Highlight of our trip

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay in Old San Juan at this rental. The location was perfect: in a quiet corner of Old San Juan, but within easy walking distance of everything you'll want to see in that area, including restaurants. The rental itself perfectly suited our tastes. We loved the style and felt it was almost like home by the time we left. Paloma was very helpful and quick to respond to questions. Without question, next time we stay in San Juan on future trips, we'll check to see if this is available before booking!

Stylish and Central

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I spent 4 nights in this penthouse apartment in Old San Juan. The location couldn't have been better. The apartment is beautiful & the bedroom bed very comfortable; we did not try the futon-style beds in the living room. The patio is nearly as big as the living room, with amazing sunset views & comfortable couches. The air conditioning is superb and quiet, a real plus in this climate. Water pressure was excellent. There is a SuperMax grocery store a few blocks away by foot.

We were a bit disappointed with the kitchen. It needed some extra cleaning attention, possibly because we arrived just after the San Sebastian Festival. More important to us was that it had no appliance for making toast & no drip coffeemaker, which made preparation of breakfast challenging for us Americans. We finally got the hang of making coffee in the French Press, but it wasn't the same quality. An upgrade of the kitchen appliances would be our suggestion.

Owner's Response: I felt terrible about your impression on kitchen cleanliness. Being "clean freak" myself I cannot understand how this happened. Nana (the cleaner) has been working with me for over 20 years and knows how important it is to me. As soon as you left a deep cleaning was performed. The french press is the preferred way to make coffee for me and many other americans (as well as international coffee experts). If you look at Sol 13's amenity list, it is the coffee making device we advertise. I wish you had mentioned it. I would have happily explained how to use it properly for amazing brew or gotten a drip coffee machine for your stay. I like to have happy guests. Respectfully, Paloma

Car: not necessary

Old San Juan is one of the must go places when your are in Puerto Rico. It has more than 500 years of history in this Spanish colonial town with nice stores, restaurants, cafes and historic buildings and churches. Walk around the streets, visit El Morro Fort, old churches, go to the stores and have lunch at one of the many fabulous restaurants.
