Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, sleeps 4 + 1

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.

This apartment is unique! This amazing and spacious artsy loft is in a historic building. The loft is on street level. 20 ft. high ceilings and marble floors in the lower level. Hard wood stairs (comfortable to climb, not too steep) lead you to the mezzanine where the beautifully designed kitchen, the dining area and two comfortable 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 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.

You can easily walk all of 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. Lively « plazas » are one and two blocks away. Close to Escambron beach, Condado and Miramar! Taxi and bus stand are a block away. Visit Old Sand Juan and experience the Old City in the most extraordinary artsy setting!!

About Lourdes or Sofia

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

What makes this apartment unique

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!

Perfect Apartment in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful and looks exactly the same as in the photos. The art is very cool and the apartment is very clean. There was plenty of room for my husband and I and our 16 and 11 year old daughters. The air conditioning and the ceiling fans kept the temperature very comfortable. One of the best features about this apartment is the location. It's right in the middle of everything in Old San Juan. Very enjoyable stay and we would definitely considering staying here again on our next trip to Puerto Rico!!

Nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

The Artsy Loft is a nice apartment in a wonderful location. Two couples were quite comfortable. There was activity in the area at night; but it was not noisy. There are dozens of restaurants within walking distance.

Old San Juan is a little ragged around the edges; some buildings have iron bars over the doors and windows, some buildings needing paint, some buildings vacant. But we felt perfectly safe day and night. And poking around the area is such a treat. The architecture in Old San Juan is enjoyable.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, well appointed apartment. The location was our favorite aspect. We walked to all of the OSJ restaurants and attractions we wanted to visit.

We were able to easily duck back into the apartment mid-day for a rest, then wander around beautiful OSJ more in the evening. It was so much nicer for our family of four than being crammed into a hotel room AND cost less.

The owner was responsive to all of my queries and easy to work with. Apartment was exactly as described in the listing. We will return in the future.
