Lovely old charm apartment in Old San Juan
I have been to PR many times and this was my first stay in OSJ. Ramon's apartment is in a great location with live events on the plaza during the weekend. Apartment is large, roomy and comfortable. With the availability to open all doors and windows it really was not necessary to run the AC. It was great staying in OSJ and being close to so many wonderful restaurants and near to all the historical sites. I will definitely stay at Ramon's apartment in future stays in Puerto Rico. Thank you Ramon
Travelers that adapt to where they go tend to enjoy the most. Brian took advantage of the live open-air shows in the Old San Juan. There is always stuff happening in the old city so that makes it all that interesting. Hope you do come back and stay here again.
Nice apt in the heart of Old San Juan.
Great place. comfortable. Plenty of space. Clean and airy; no need to use the air conditioning at all; there was a nice breeze. Loved being on the Plaza. Very convenient. I would stay here again - any day. Absolutely no complaints at all. Thank you.
These are the kind of guests you want to come back. Enjoying the nice natural ventilation that the old-school architects designed is living the old city at it's best. You are welcome again any time.
In the middle of everything, but quiet
Ramon's apartment is an oasis of cool and calm right in the middle of Old San Juan. Very convenient to the monuments, restaurants and shops. It has plenty of space for 4 people, has air conditioning and ceiling fans (we only needed the fans, in February). The bathroom has plenty of hot water and a spacious tub/shower. We cooked breakfast each morning and the kitchen was well equipped. The neighbors are cheerful. The breezy balcony has a nice view. Ramon has provided tourist maps and a magazine, and some interesting coffee table books about PR history and culture. The apartment is quite comfortable.
Thanks for this nice review and for taking good care of the apartment. Hope that you, or your friends and family, come back in the near future.
This was a great stay for us.
-- Fabulous location! walking distance to everything we wanted to see in old san juan; short walk to almost endless array of restaurants; great supermarket right on the plaza.
-- big apartment, clean and very light and airy at the front..the back bedroom was very hot.
-- wonderful balcony, albeit small. Totally enjoyed sitting out on it!~
-- adorably quaint retro fixtures and furnishings! We just ADORED the old dentist chair right in the living area!
-- We loved being right on the plaza. On saturday night we enjoyed listening/watching locals at flamenco dancing and music.
-- Ramon was a fantastic, helpful and attentive host. We loved that he offered lots of helpful info, checked on us and responded quickly to queries. He readily allowed my sister and me to do a super late checkout since we had an evening flight out of san juan. That was a big help.
-- light sleepers may want to bring earplugs. It was tough to sleep with the bustle and noise of the plaza at night. But, that is also to be expected when in the center of it all.
-- if you are elderly or disabled, ask Ramon about the elevator. it was out of service when we were there. We are fit and active middle aged women, so we actually enjoyed the exercise, but the elderly will find it difficult. I know the condo association is working on updating it, but on my next visit i will still use the stairs, fitness nut that i am!
If you are all about location in the center of old San Juan, this is the place!
Thanks for this complete review. Indeed, if you truly want to enjoy Old San Juan at it´s best, this is the premier location, right on the main plaza, we can´t emphasize that enough. Generally, any live music on the plaza is on weekends until 11pm at the latest, but if you want to stay in, away from it all, just make sure to tightly close our soundproof front windows. In regards to the second bedroom, in the back, if you open the rear windows it will make a big difference, along with the ceiling fan.
Best place to stay and tour Old San Juan
Terrific. No place could be more convenient to see Old San Juan. Ramon recommended great places to eat. The accommodations suited to a T our family of 3. We loved beaches castles & forest and our balcony view of theater dance and mime. Great vacation -- Dick S
I rented this historic apartment in Old San Juan for an extended period of approximately 6 weeks. It was simply amazing!! My wife and son still rave about it to their friends. The location is truly unique being one of just a few residences in the central square of OSJ. Being on the 5th floor, I had constant views of street performers, locals mingling, gorgeous sunsets, etc. The apartment has so much old world charm that it felt like something out of a movie. The landlord, Ramon, was so nice and attentive, checking in to make sure everything was just perfect. We will definitely be back!!!
Location, Location, Location: The apartment is located steps away to markets, pharmacies, taxis, restaurants, museums, historic sites, government offices, hotels, cruise ships, nightlife, pubs, theaters, ice cream parlors, jogging trails, tennis and basketball courts, etc. Also, El Convento Hotel, and The Casino, both popular venues for weddings, are just a few blocks away. Enjoy from the balcony free concerts or shows often offered in Plaza de Armas. Finally, remember that when travelling from the USA to PR no passport is needed!
