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.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The reviews don't lie! This apartment was in the perfect location. Right in the middle of Old San Juan. Every restaurant and small shop was within 4-8 minutes walking distance. I think the most I walked was 12 minutes to a super hidden cafe that had the best coffee I've ever had. The apartment itself was perfect. Every morning I walked over the the balcony and opened the Spanish style French style doors to let in light and air. It was beautiful. The whole apartment was clean and ready to use. Our flight landed very early and the host was more than accommodating and let us drop our bags off early. We rented a car with Payless and I would do it with them again. They are outside of the airport(about 5 min away), but they have a shuttle that takes you to and from the airport to the car rental for free. Just make sure you have you car insurance declaration from back home so you dont need their coverage (but call your insurance company first..let them know you are traveling to Puerto Rico and they will let you know if you will be covered). Just like everyone else says. You cannot park on the street the apartment is on. It's hard to find parking, but it can be done for free if you drive around like 10 minutes. Do not. I repeat do not park where there are yellow, blue, red or white curbs. And if you do find a curb with no color, make sure to read the signs from corner to corner. Some spots are only open the the public from 7am-7pm and then its residential parking 7pm-7am. The tickets are $250, so head my warning. If you do get a parking ticket you can pay it half cost at the bus station in old san juan. There is an office somewhere in that building.

Great, fun little apartment in the heart of Old San Juan

  • 5 of 5

Quite street, great management/owners who were very helpful. Bed was comfortable, kitchen had everything needed for a week or so stay. Very easy to get to from the airport via quick 20 minute cab ride. Many restaurants and bars in the area, all within walking distance. Very walk-able area, don't rent a car, because you will not be able to park (and you really don't need a car, Uber was at most 10 minute wait, and that was at the busiest time of day, normally less than 5 minutes to get a ride).

Wonderful location to explore OSJ. The property was amazing with all the amenities of home.

  • 5 of 5

Lourdes & Miguel were always available if needed. The renovations to the apartment were terrific, thoroughly modern in a old historic building. Really loved the balconies. You can sit there and have your morning coffee and watch the city wake up. You won't be disappointed with this one.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

It’s cozy, clean, safe, private, perfect location. Many good restaurants close to the apt. My favorite “ El Jibarito”. There’s food everywhere. Love it. We also enjoyed the fact that The Morro, San Cristobal Fort, museums, Arts and the ocean all within walking distance. We highly recommended this place. Thank you Lourdes and Mickey. Professional and easy to deal with.

Great Location - Great Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Apartment couldn’t have been in a better location. On a quiet stretch of street but only a few minutes walk to vibrant night life and shopping.

Apartment itself was spacious, bright and well kept.

Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again!
