We are conveniently located right in the heart of Old San Juan, on a cobblestone emblematic street. Come and stay in our well decorated colonial interior loft with 19 feet ceiling height. We provide you a queen size bed on bedroom at mezzanie, 1 full futon at the first floor, 1 bathroom (shower), full kitchen, TV with cable TV & DVD player, microwave and much more. Full air conditioner and fully equiped. Old San Juan is the new Caribbean gastronomic capital with all kind of food accessible. We are just steps away from the Unesco World Heritage Spanish Forts: San Cristobal (1 minute walking distance) & San Felipe del Morro (8 minutes walking distance). Also steps away from the Atlantic Ocean (1 minute walking distance), San Juan Bay (4 minutes walking distance), designer stores, jewelries, restaurants, pubs, discos and museums.
I was extremely happy with the loft. It was in a great location, walking distance of the san juan Forts, restaurants, gift shops, etc. When we arrived David was awaiting our arrival and made us feel welcomed and right at home in his loft. He checked on us mid-week to make sure we had everything we needed and didnt have any problems with the loft, it was very appreciated it. Highly recommend staying here!
It was our first visit to Puerto Rico and especially to see Old San Juan. We completely enjoyed staying in Carmen and David's Loft. It was exactly as described on HomeAway. It is central to everything, cozy, clean, and convenient. There are two separate sleeping areas which is a real plus with couples who don't always turn in at the same time! The full kitchen saves $$$ for not having to eat out for every meal; and it's a very nice kitchen. Everything we needed from plenty of plush towels to a coffee maker was there. David and Carmen were extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived at the airport on time but ran into some delay in getting our rental car so we got to the loft hours later than we expected. David stayed in touch with us by phone and text all the time and when we finally arrived on the block with our luggage, he was there waiting for us. He even carried the luggage in for us! He was available all week, and both he and Carmen could not have been friendlier or done anything more to make our stay more pleasant! I had left my cell phone on a bench in the plaza mid-week in our stay, but thanks to the police working with David the phone was returned to me before I even realized it was missing! The only drawback, which we knew about in advance, is that there are no windows in the apartment. This may not be suitable for anyone who may want to spend a lot of time inside, but we wanted to be out and about as much as possible so it was not a problem for us, The convenience of the location and the comfort of the place more than compensated for not having a window. Plus the moderate price for so much! We recommend Carmen & David's loft highly if you want to stay in Old San Juan.
We were very impressed with the loft, ammenities, and the communication from David and Carmen. We will be back to Puerto Rico due to the experience we had in this loft and hope to rent it again in the future.
This unit is in a great location, near Plaza Colon with lots of nice restaurants nearby and even an espresso bar on the corner. You can walk everywhere easily. The unit does look like the pictures. It has everything you need and it is nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable, although the sleeping area is up a spiral staircase that perhaps some people may not be able to negotiate. We enjoyed staying here, but one should be aware there are no windows. It is situated at the back of a large apartment complex so there are no windows to the outside. This may bother some people but the location does make up for that. David was very courteous and was in the unit when we arrived and was very helpful. We had no problems with the unit.
If we ever come back to PR, we'll stay here again.

I booked this trip as a surprise for my boyfriend's 30th birthday, and I could not be happier that we chose to stay in the Old San Juan Loft with Carmen and David. Because of a massive snowstorm on the East Coast, our flights were incredibly delayed, so instead of arriving in San Juan in the afternoon, we did not get in until after 10 p.m. Even with the late arrival, David was at the loft waiting for us to let us in and show us around. He was so nice and made sure to show us places to go, what to see and even which parking garage would be cheaper for our rental car. The apartment itself was charming, clean, comfortable and in the best location possible. Even though we did some driving during the day and explored around, it was great to come back to Old San Juan in the evenings and be able to walk around. I would recommend to anyone and everyone to stay with Carmen and David at the Old San Juan loft for a really great experience.
We stayed 4 nights over the San Sebastián festival and couldn't have been happier with the loft. It is just as described in the listing. The upstairs bed and downstairs futon offered big privacy for a relatively small space. The location and old architecture really can't be beat. And David was extremely accommodating and nice as a host--thanks. I highly recommend.
Our regular check in time is from 4:00 pm to 10:00pm. Please notify before reservation if your check in time is before or after the regular hours. Thank you!
