About Lourdes

We bought this property because we love Old San Juan. It is the best place to be when you are in Puerto Rico!

Lourdes purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Lourdes chose San Cristóbal

It is in the heart of Old San Juan, on a quiet street, close to the Ocean Walk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The host was very helpful and friendly and the apartment was as lovely as described. The location is excellent and the neighborhood too. We were able to visit all the key locations including the classic tourist attractions as well as many restaurants and other points of interest, all without the need of a rental car. The security of the apartment was apparent and the comforts of the accommodations were more than adequate. Still, the cost was reasonable and affordable for a great value. We would highly recommend this as a place to enjoy Old San Juan to the most.

Close to everything in town and a great place to stay to enjoy Old San Juan. Looks even better than in the pictures which is hard to do.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Puerto Rico and this was a perfect place to stay. Only a few minutes from the ocean and easy walking distance to the harbor. It felt like being in Italy with the small cobblestone streets and colorful houses when sitting on the front balconies. Nice clean apartment with enough kitchen space to fix meals. Far better then a motel room and a lot less money.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment in a quiet location. Everything is close by--historic sights, pretty parks, museums, and wonderful restaurants. We enjoyed walking around and discovering all the sights. Lourdes, the owner, was very helpful and provided a lot of information about the area, restaurants, etc.

Lovely place and great location in Old San Juan

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean, very charming and a perfect location for a visit in Old San Juan. We stayed 3 nights and Lourdes instructions for our arrival made our stay completely stress free. I would definitely stay there again.

Cute, quiet and clean, with all the charm of Old San Juan right in the heart of town.

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! You're two blocks from the ocean and walking distance to anything in Old San Juan. Plenty of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and shopping is just steps away. There is a drug store, grocery store and even a Marshalls dept store all within a 5 minute walk in case you forgot something or need to stock up on supplies. The apartment was clean, with all the amenities you need. AC and ceiling fans to keep you nice and cool. TV and wifi if you just have to stay plugged in....but you're crazy if you don't get outside! The two street facing balconies let you take in all the sounds and charm of the cobble stone street below and the surrounding colorful buildings. We planned the first half of our trip at a typical hotel on the beach, we had a car and hit all the spots around the island. Then we switched to Lourdes' spot and got rid of the car. One of the locals told us you CAN NOT park a car, even a rental, OVERNIGHT in Old San Juan unless you are a resident with the approved decal. She said there are designated areas on the outskirts of town for parking but we never asked where. We noticed as we walked the town that finding street parking is almost impossible anyway so ditching the car was the right move. You WON'T need a car to get around in Old SJ. We used Uber when we ventured out of the city and for our ride to the airport. $13 +tip to get to the airport. They came to the apartment within five minutes each time. We also had one last adventure tour planned while we were in Old San Juan and that company came and picked us up right in town. While you're there get something to eat at Deaverdura, on the corner just a couple of blocks up Calle Sol to your left as you walk out the door. We showed up just as they were closing so we asked for a recomendation for diner elsewhere but the owner insisted that we stay because we wouldn't find another place with food as good as hers...she was right. They sat and talked with us and made us feel like we were part of the family. That was the best part of the meal. In the morning, hit the coffee shop in the Plaza De Armas Hotel and get some of their coffee and a delicious pastry treat called a quesito! Stay at Lourdes' place, you will love it!

Great Apartment with Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

If you want to have easy access to everything Old San Juan has to offer at a reasonable price, this is the place to stay. You are close to everything. After a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport, you will be able to enjoy great restaurants and shopping. If you want to prepare some or all of your own own meals, there is a supermarket within 3 blocks. You can spend time in the numerous plazas or spend time walking through the numerous sites within the city. Several fun tours are offered by the Bacardi distillery across the bay that can be reached by ferry. There are also numerous tours that can be booked in the area for day trips to the beach, El Yunque rainforest, zip lining, snorkeling or site seeing. You will also be just a few blocks away from the bus terminal that provides transportation to many local sites as well. You can even take one of the busses to and from the airport if you are on a budget. If the local cuisine is not appealing, several fast food restaurants including Wendys and Subway are within walking distance. There is also a Walgreens and CVS 5 blocks away. Coffee shops are also common in the area along with a Starbucks if That is your cup of "tea". The apartment itself is not large, but it has everything you need for 2 people. It is located on the second floor of Calle Sol and has a nice small balcony. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook any meal. You have a two burner stove with a small microwave and small table top oven along with a refrigerator. There is air conditioning in the main living area and bedroom along with two ceiling fans. Opening the balcony doors, however, and allowing the ocean breezes to come in is the best way to enjoy the apartment. There is a tv with cable and wifi. This is my third time visiting San Juan. I have stayed in Condado and Isla Verde. This is the place you want to stay!
