Great hotel. People very helpful to make it the best stay ever Luv everything
The hotel was very convenient. It is walking distance from the cruise port and the rest of Old San Juan. Staff very friendly.
Great location, right in old San Juan. Casino was fun at night. Rooftop pool was fun during the day. No view from our room, but that wasn't a big deal.
Nice view to the bay, pretty roof swimming pool and good gym No parking, bad service in the front desk. No attention to the guest. They send me to the wrong room with a family inside... They don't pay attention to what they do in the front desk. Not possible to book in the front desk the man make me reserve through a phone and it was not possible. At the end, I had to make the booking on my cellphone because they were not kind enough to make me a reservation.
The hotel is in a great location for touring Old San Juan. Taxi access great and right on the waterfront. The staff and service here is perfect. It's so unbelievably overpriced for a mid-range style Sheraton it made us choke paying their prices. However, they know they can hold you hostage with those prices given the other hotel options in Old San Juan. Its quite loud in the hallways, but I must say the location is awesome.
The location was great for walking they old San Juan and to get on cruise ship. A/C in our room didn't work. Only received two channels on tv. Advertised as having its own casino inside hotel and there was no casino. Very disappointed.
Expensive and noisy. Nice location
Great place to stay at since it if very close to the cruise port. Wish they had a shuttle to pick up at the airport. Also pool was too small. Need different tile for the pool area because that tile is very slippery.
Very comfortable bed and size of the room. Some hallway noise.
Would really like my money back. I have told everyone I know to NOT book through Kayak nor stay at this girl.
Staff was very helpful in recommending somewhere to eat. Beds were very comfortable and they were accommodating to my needs. None
Great stay but had ask repeatedly for washcloths. Going green ( no maid service, just fresh towels ) was pefect....and received a $5 coupon each day you go green. Used it in the restaurant. Downside, they forgot to give it to us one day. And still no washcloths!! Another downside, cable reception was horrible all 4 nights!!! No TV for longer than 20 or so minutes. Very aggravating. So dont expect to relax to a movie or occupy the kiddies while you get ready for dinner. Front desk never had an answer and nothing they could do. Otherwise, great location, comfy beds, quiet hallways at night.
Great location in Old San Juan. We were going on a Windstar cruise and were able to walk the short distance to our ship. The staff was very helpful and our room was comfortable.
staff & location
Location is great. The whole vibe in the area is awesome. Great friendly staff. Beautiful hotel. Loved it. Would recommend.
This was our second visit. We love the historic and quaint atmosphere this hotel provides, exactly the experience we wanted in Old San Juan. This small hotel is not crowded and staff treat you like a personal guest. They go above and beyond to help you and ensure you enjoy your stay. It can be a bit noisy but at no fault of the hotel. When you stay on Fortaleza St you are in the center of the action and hear music from neighboring restaurants. We did not mind this. Being in the center of things was important to us and we felt part of the activity and excitement that is Old San Juan.
Hotel was very cleaned, staff was so attentive and personable, room was comfortable enough for 2 people.
Staff was super friendly and helpful. Joyce promptly answered my emails/questions before we got there. Location was perfect. Right in Old Town San Juan. Couldn't find an outlet in the bathroom. Made it a bit more difficult to get ready in the morning. Room was small but wasn't an issue for us because we were only in our room to sleep.
I liked the location on Calle Fortaleza, close to good restaurants and to parking lot. The room was incredibly small. I need to talk to someone in the front desk to get my key, and they had a sign that says "for help text x number". Nobody answered until the next day when I had left already. How did I finally get my key? I opened the desk and there it was, no help, no security, no supervision. I just took it and kept going.
We loved our stay at this cozy little boutique hotel in the heart of Old San Juan! Lots of character and small rooms (which we liked and found so comfortable). Loved the chandeliers in the bedroom and even bathroom! The staff was so accommodating and friendly and hauled my overstuffed, incredibly heavy bag all the way up 5 flights of stairs with no problem (they don't have an elevator yet). The rooftop was so unique and overlooked the city too! I would highly recommend if you're looking for a different kind of experience than the Hilton and big chain hotels. They're currently installing an elevator but the staff will gladly carry bags up the stairs for you.
Beautiful hotel!!! Excellent staff! Fantastic location. Our A/C was leaking and they could not get it to stop. The hotel had no other rooms available so to fix the problem they moved us to a nearby hotel. The new place was beautiful as well and it felt like we got an upgraded room. We were very impressed with how the situation was resolved so quickly and smoothly. Nothing! Would have loved to have stayed there if the A/C would have stopped leaking. But they fixed the situation very quickly.
This is a very charming little hotel in a great location in the middle of Old San Juan, and the staff is incredibly friendly. I highly recommend it. The bed was pretty hard. I overpaid because I booked through this site. I would have paid much less booking with the hotel directly. I recommend you do that.
The position is great , the staff is excellent, clean, nice,the best place to walk Old San Juan
We loved the atmosphere and the staff. The rooms were fun and the whole family was comfortable. We would stay here again and recommend it to our friends visiting Old San Juan!
Friendly helpful staff. Excellent location. Iconoclastic décor. I very much enjoyed staying at this hotel, but it does not meet the lowest level of fire safety standards. There is only one open stairway leading to all the floors and no secondary means of escape--not even a fire escape. There is not separation between the lobby and the restaurant. There is no sprinkler system.
The hotel had so much character and thought put into every detail. our room was gorgeous! They were very accommodating about us leaving our luggage in a side room when we were several hours early for check in.
Proof super friendly and helpful and the place was awesome!!!! Perfect location
La Terraza is a beautifully restored hotel with tile flooring, alcoves, and a beautiful rooftop terrace. There are modern touches as well like walk in showers, flat screen TVs, and a rather reasonably priced mini bar. The beds were very comfortable and the view from the terrace was pretty impressive. Last but not least, Carmen, the front desk manager/coffee barista was incredibly charming, kind, and knowledgeable. If you're looking for a place to stay in Old San Juan, this is it! There is virtually no street parking available which I believe is just a symptom of that part of the city. However, there is a parking garage around the corner but it's a flat rate of $20/24-hrs so be prepared. We also had a difficult time getting to the hotel once we reached Old San Juan due to construction and lots of one way streets. I suggest avoiding the rental car and using some sort of public transport or your own two legs.
The facilities and staff were excellent. Beautiful rooms, old world charm with modern water pressure and comfy beds. St. Germain is just down the street, and fabulous coffee right around the corner. The infinity pool is hoy tub sized, but the view is lovely.
Quaint. The staff was very friendly and hospitable. It was a perfect location for seeing old San Juan The room we had was next to the kitchen so we heard noises throughout the night. But it wasn't bad and I would still come back. My wife and I loved the room overall.
My wife and I wanted something genuinely Puerto Rican and this did it. Only 1 day but very enjoyable in the center of Old San Juan with easy access to anything. Staff was super friendly. Even held our bags after check out so we could keep exploring before boarding a cruise. THEN they kept our bags again, 1 week later when we returned from our cruise and had another 5 hours to kill even though we didn't book another night. A+++
The location is very good if you like to visit old San Juan. It only costs about $20( for two) taxi to get to the hotel and cost $15( for two) to get to the cruise ship port. There are only small window close to the ceilings, but the rest of room is good. Bathroom is very good with the price we paid.
Staff was very courteous and helpful. The location was very convenient. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The street is very noisy at night. The corner bar rocks until 4:00 AM on the weekend. You are on your own for parking.
Close to Old Town. The breakfast offered was Poor and when we booked I was not offered the cruise 10% discount if prepaid.
the staff was very, very helpful & friendly, the great location
The location, the helpful staff, room was comfortable. No in-room wi-fi was my major gripe; other minor things: shower was too small; room was too cold with A/C and too warm without it; most channels on the TV list didn't actually work
It was very accessible to Old San Juan and very comfortable.
The free and fast internet pc in the lobby free parking was almost impossible to find and the only reasonably priced parking lot was more than four blocks away.
Staff was unusually helpful and informative. Bistro inhouse was excellent and the staff were professional and very nice. Rooms were clean and quiet. Relaxing experience. Highly recommended. The hotel is not close to Old Town, but it is in a quiet and historic neighborhood.
The price was great for the location. Everything in old san juan was right at our fingertips. The room was kept very clean. You could smell the detergent in the towels and sheets everyday. Excellent housekeeping staff. The condition of the room was a bit outdated though. The rug felt grimy on our barefeet and there was rust on the fringes of the shower. This was great for a one or two night stay but I'd probably look for better quality for anything longer than that.
Close to shopping and restaurants and the beach
Location Run down dirty
Good location. One of the better rooftop restaurants in the city.
staff was excellent. Great location. In need of some repairs and addition of an elevator.
Great place, excellent location, wonderful staff! Rooftop terrace & pool lots of fun.
I really loved the rooftop terrace. Maybe it's the atmosphere or the full moon on top of us , we don't now but it really felt relax and I really was in need of that feeling. The hotel is at walking distance of all the old San Juan amenities so I really loved the area! Well it's a boutique hotel and the building was build maybe 200 or 300 years ago it Didn't have any elevator as i expected (only 4 floors use the stairs) but I did have a beautiful experience and the building is nicely decorated . The art through all the hotel was very interesting.
I wouldn't stay there again. I was treated poorly by the hotel staff and service seemed to be inexistent except for the very nice cleaning lady. It's over priced for what it is and shouldn't be so well rated. the service was the worst I've ever experienced. The manager yelled at me with no apparent issue. He yelled for something that had happened the previous night.
The front desk was very helpful and accommodating. Rooms were big and quite comfortable. Our room had a view of an old building, but who cares, we weren't there for the view. No coffee/tea maker in room. A/C way too cold, but was adjusted when asked.
Large rooms, sparsely furnished, but very clean. The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful.
Convenient location, clean rooms noisy, poor air conditioning, lights did not all work. No safe. no dead bolt/security chain. No continental breakfast as advertised. TV channels were few and uninteresting
Excellent front desk, very friendly with good suggestions about restaurants and things to do. The room was very large and clean, the king size bed was wonderful with top quality sheets. The location cannot be beat for those interested in the Old City. This hotel is right in the middle of Old San Juan and our window view faced out over unsightly rooftops -- but there is no way for the hotel to address this problem! No coffee machine in room (would have been nice since our flight left before the breakfast room opened).
Location This hotel required me to give them my credit card number upon arrival. Which I did. But my room was already bought and paid for through Booking.com three months earlier. I then spent a week on a cruise ship and never used my credit card again. When I returned home I found that my credit card had been used for a booking at the Sheraton (an unauthorized charge since I never stayed there) Since S & J Suites is the only place that recieved my credit card number my assumption is that the number was stolen and by someone at the S & J Suites and used fraudulently. I have turned the matter over to the fraud unit at my credit card company for their investigation. The night manager's name who took my credit card # at the S & J Suites is Angel.
perfect position downtown of Old San Juan Following our stay in this Hotel, we were not happy with our selection: 1th - the room had no windows 2nd - we had less than 18° C (approx. 64° F) in our room because the air condition could not be regulated or switched off. After the first night we made a complaint on the lobby. Following their caretaker tried to close the fan / blower in the rooms - but without sucess. The morning after we had taken a beautiful cold for the next 3 days... For this hotel we can't make any recommandation - also when the position is perfect downtown of Old San Juan.
the continental breakfast was terrible. just bad coffee and white bread
Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was excellent-close to many good restaurants and the cruise ship terminal. Room smelled very musty. There was no window nor any way to control the room's temperature. It was very cold in the room.
The staff were very helpful in recommending good places for an authentic experience in old San Juan and helping with transportation. The rooms were very quiet, roomy and clean and the central location was perfect for walking around the city, day or night. The air conditioning is controlled in a central location and at times it got rather warm before the A/C kicked in.
The location is very central to visit the Old San Juan area. The description of the hotel indicates that they have parking, when I almost get there I called for directions to the parking and they said "We don't offer parking". Well the main reason I chose this hotel was because of the parking, I know for sure that parking in Old San Juan can be a nightmare. To make it worse, it Rained, but that's not the hotels fault of course.
It is in n old building in the heart of Old San Juan., just what we' were wanting. We stayed in a room, facilities were very clean and air conditioning worked well. Beds were basic but comfortable. Nothing
great location if you just stay here for travel and you want save money, I think that you can choice this Hotel share the bathroom (because this hotel is cheap)
Comfortable, reasonably priced, near beach and Old San Juan
