San Juan Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, sleeps 5

This apartment is unique! This amazing artsy loft is in a historic building. The loft is on street level. No carrying luggage up a steep flight of stairs or walking down some dark corridor to reach it. 20 ft. high ceilings and marble floors in the lower level. Hard wood stairs (comfortable to climb, not too steep) lead you to the second level where the beautifully designed kitchen, the dining area and bedrooms are located. All hard wood floor on the second level. An original mural by artist Sofia Maldonado adorns the hallway. Stunning contemporary art pieces on all the walls.

The spacious master bedroom has a queen size bed. The second room has two twin beds and a small futon. In total we can accomodate 5 people. Most apartments in Old San Juan have just one bathroom. Ours has 1 1/2 bathrooms. Full bathroom on the first floor and 1/2 bathroom on the second. Quiet, comfortable, spacious, a/c in all areas. Condominium has two interior patios in common areas. This apartment is very elegant! You will live a luxurious vacation if you stay in the Artsy Loft.

You can easily walk all Old San Juan and dine at the most renowned restaurants, visit the forts and see the most spectacular views of the San Juan Bay and Atlantic Ocean. Starbucks, Old Harbor Brewery, local bars, the most lively 'plazas' are one and two blocks away. Long walk (with Atlantic Ocean View) to Escambron beach, Condado and Miramar or take the bus or a cab! Taxi and bus stand are a block away. Visit Old Sand Juan and experience the Old City in the most extraordinary artsy setting!!

I love Old San Juan. It is like a small village full of charm, history and wonderful people! You haven't been to Puerto Rico if you don't stay in Old San Juan.

Lourdes or Sofia purchased this apartment in 2009

We needed a lot of imagination when we bought this loft! We had to rebuild it from scratch. But that is the fun of it! Today, it is nowhere near what it was then. The restauration took over a year. But we knew it was going to be unique! And it is!! Marble and hard wood floors, exquisite contemporary art, all new appliances. It is the Artsy Loft! Unique in Old San Juan.

It is situated in one of the best streets in San Juan, close to all the great restaurants and hotels. Completely repaved, Tetuan Street goes from the Teatro Tapia up to la Capilla del Cristo. It is a wonderful promenade. It is also close to the port and the beautiful Paseo La Princesa. Walking distance from taxi stand, bus stop and parking lots. What more could I ask for!

My three daughters and and I were most pleased with our stay at Artsy Place in Old San Juan on our trip to celebrate my 80th birthday and to meet cousins we had never met and so enjoyed getting to know with a highlight for me being a visit to San German where my father was from. Our location for visiting all of Old San Juan was perfect for walking, shopping, dining, and taking the trolley to visit the Fort. We so appreciate your stocking a few items in the refrigerator for us, especially the morning coffee after our late arrival, and so appreciate your being their to greet us. All communication was clear and efficient. Muchas gracia por todos and I am sure, if we have the opportunity to visit PR again, we will stay with you!
Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay in PR! You were great guests too. Thank-you for taking good care of our treasure: the Artsy Loft. We love it, too!

Art loft is very centric and right beside the culinary district of Sofo (South Fortaleza St.)
Great restaurants in the area. Highly recommend Marmalade of chef Peter Schintler.
Loft is very cozy with 2 bedroo.s and 1 1/2 bath.
Only downside is that the rooms are on 2nd floor and the shower is on the lower level.
Loft is beautifully decorated and well prepared.
Walking distance to all important historic sites in Old San Juan.
Will definitely come back next year!!!

We recently took a cruise out of San Juan and stayed in this loft for a few days prior to the sail date. We loved the fact that it is so close to so much in old San Juan. A cruise ship port, fantastic restaurants, shopping, and more are all within a couple blocks. The apartment is nice and accurately represented in the VRBO write up. The manager; Lourdes, is helpful and accessible. There is a kitchen, but don't bother buying groceries as there are too many places you will want to try out nearby. Be aware that this is not beachfront or fronting a beautiful view, in fact, the immediate other side of the street is the back of a restaurant kitchen. That being said, you are staying in a terrific location that gives you a feel for old San Juan, not a fancy hotel. If you stay here, do yourself a favor and book a walking food tour from Taste of San Juan and get a good appreciation of and lay of the land. When coupled with the reasonable rental price and absence of an expensive cleaning fee, I give this place 5 stars.

Property was everything that was advertised online. Central location in Old San Juan with only a short walk in any direction to food, sight seeing or shopping.

The apartment was spacious and very clean. The art was very unique and provided a nice touch to the loft.

I would highly recommend this property and would stay there again if visiting.

This loft was everything that was promised in the description. It is roomy, clean, comfortable and in an excellent location close to stores and restaurants. The apartment is a home away from home having everything you need for a relaxing vacation. I was very pleased with the comfortable beds and high quality linens and towels.
I feel a very important part of renting an apartment is the communication and support you get from the property manager and Lourdes was top notch in both areas. Thank you for all you did.
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for such a great review! Hope you come back soon!
