This is a great apartment in a great location right in the middle of Old San Juan. You can walk to the forts and to all the restaurants and shops in Old San Juan. It's the perfect location if you want to experience the history and the culture as a local. Less than 2 blocks away there is a supermarket, 2 drug stores and a Marshalls. The neighborhood is safe and quiet.
The owner is very proffessional, knowledgable and accomodating. When I asked him if there is a hair dryer in the apartment he said no, but then went out and got one. He even provided beach towels, beach chairs and a cooler in case I wanted to go to the beach. I did not try going to the beach however, so I cannot comment on how accessible that is from this apartment.
It will cost you about $20 to get here from the airport, and if you have a car, with a little searching you can probably find parking on the street, although be prepared that Old San Juan can get very congested. I didn't have a car while I stayed here, but I did get one to be able to get to other parts of the island.
This is a great place to stay at if you are looking for the authentic puerto rican experience. Don't be scared to talk to the locals, they can give you alot of valuable information such as where to get the best Puerto Rican coffee (like at Ben and Jerry's 2 blocks away from the apartment).
If I were to go back I would definitely stay there again, or even rent out the owner's other property on Culebra island. I'm sure the experience will be just as great.
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: I try really hard to be part of the Puerto Rico experience. It makes me very happy when I can make guests feel happy and welcomed in my properties. Thanks, Gaby
