This unique apartment is part of a building which was recently re-certified by the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture as being emblematic of Old San Juan’s heritage. Yet it provides all the modern amenities you wish for on vacation: A/C, a fully equipped kitchen, queen size bed, wi-fi Internet with easy-to-use Roku streaming video player and free access to Netflix, Pandora, news and other channels. It has a coin laundry right next door and parking buildings just 3 blocks south. It lies in a quiet street just steps away from the San Cristobal Fort. A tunnel used to connect this property with the fort during colonial times. The tunnel no longer remains, but part of its entrance is preserved. Some of the best restaurants in the area are just two to three blocks away. A café with the most valuable espresso machine in the entire Caribbean, and coffee which reflects that in its flavor, is just around the corner.
Some of the best and most original restaurants in the area, including The Parrot Club, Tantra, Toro Salao and many others are just a few steps away as well. The apartment is not recommended for young children.
The apartment was perfect for two people, and it's in a fantastic location in Old San Juan! The apartment itself was cute, clean and well maintained. It definitely helped having a fully equipped kitchen for the days we decided to have a late morning and make breakfast ourselves.
My boyfriend (now fiance) and I stay at Calle O'Donnell in February for 8 nights. The apartment is great for 2 people! It is very clean and has a great location. The street itself at night is beautiful. Irma was great, she met us at the apartment when we arrived in our taxi and helped us get situated. Our favorite places were the coffee shop right on the corner, they have great breakfast. Taking the bus to the beaches was so easy and only .75 cents. You can;t go wrong! Ocean Park breach was our favorite. We also rented a car for the ady and travelled to the rainforest. Worth the trip! Would definitly recommend this place to friends!
Beautiful, unique, comfortable apartment in perfect location. Could not have wished for anything better. Definitely coming back.
We had a fantastic time staying at this apartment for 7 weeks.
It was better than it's pictures, very spacious and comfortable. The story of the secret tunnel from the Fort was the icing on the cake. The Internet TV was great for movies etc in the evenings. Wifi was fast + reliable.
Annett and Irma at Vida Urbana were marvelous hosts, attending to our every need promptly, efficiently and in a very friendly manner.
The location is unbeatable. We were within a few minutes walking distance of everything in Old San Juan. The Forts, historic sights, the Bus Station, fabulous restaurants + coffee shops, the laundrette...!
We hired a car to tour the beautiful Island, and parked overnight in a car park near the cruise ships, 5 mins walk away, cheap + safe.
Our favorite 'must do' unique sights were Grand Laguna Bio Illuminescent Bay; Areceibo Observatory; El Yunque Rain Forest; Camuy Caves; the Central Mountain Scenic Drive, and every Festival you can get to!
Enjoy Puerto Rico, truly a paradise Island of Enchantment.
Our stay at 153 O'Donnel was overall great. We were greeted well and given a hospitable welcome. Having towels, utensils and various dishes available made our stay very comfortable.
We however found some minor issues that could have been prevented and should probably be addressed for your future guests. When we first arrived, the condo smell was very stale. It needed to be ventilated. After a couple of days, the stale air and smell issue was gone. Another issue was the bed, it made a loud noise when either one of us moved at night. We have to manually move it a little from the wall and align it so that it doesn't make the noise anymore. Another somewhat annoying issue was the pillows. The pillows smelled very bad. The pillow covers were clean and didn't smell; but the pillows inside smelled very bad and should probably be washed or changed. We had a small incident with the shower head. The multi-point moving shower head somehow became detached and fell off on me while taking a shower. It was not a big deal and it was quickly resolved by your maintenance guy. The internet kept getting disconnected and we had to reset the router pretty much every time we needed to use it. The Ruku was great; we watched many shows and movies when the weather was bad or when were simple tired walking the streets of old san Juan. we would have liked to be able to use some free apps but they required a password which we don't think was available to us.
Overall, it was a great stay and we would definitely do it with you again and/or recommend you to our friends.
Thank you very much.
My wife and I spent a week in this lovely condo and enjoyed every second of our stay. We were right in the middle of the entertainment and food district of Old San Juan. The walk to the grocery store was about 3 blocks and the bars and food were even closer. The only thing that kept this stay from being five star was that we weren't told about the community washer and dryer, so we used the laundromat next door and they lost the wash cloths. Other than that, it was a perfect trip. The wifi was a great help because we were able to look up restaurants before we left and the staff were very helpful and very prompt at both check in and check out. I would recommend anyone visiting Puerto Rico to stay in this condo and experience the best of what the island has to offer.
Old San Juan is the oldest city on US Territory and part of the World Heritage. It is about 8 by 8 blocks of unique colonial style architecture and offers everything from restaurants, bars, Puerto Rican coffee shops, galleries, open air music, nice paths to walk by the Port & Ocean, tourist shops to grocery store, pharmacy, Marshalls and Starbucks. The closest unofficial beach is in front of the Capitol Building in about 10-15 walking minutes from almost anywhere in Old San Juan. The nearest blue flag beach is called El Escambron and can reached in about 25-30 minutes walking along the Atlantic Ocean or in about 5 minutes by car/ taxi or bus. Old San Juan has a bus station from where you can go to Plaza Las Americas, the biggest mall in the Caribbean, to the Convention Center, as well as to Condado and Isla Verde, the other two main tourist spots along the coast of San Juan. Condado and Isla Verde are the modern parts of the city and have great beaches, hotels & casinos & much more...
