Very cozy with a great location!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is little and has a slightly cramped shower, but is over all very cozy and charming. I absolutely loved the colonial Spanish architecture! The hosts and location were great - very close to a lot of restaurants, bars, and historic sites. Carmen responded very quickly, and the booking process was very easy. David was there on the check in day, and was very nice. He showed us around the apartment, gave us a few easy instructions, and told us where to find economical and safe parking. The streets get pretty filled with parked cars, and it can be pretty difficult to find somewhere to park, but there was a garage not too far away. All in all, it was a fantastic stay!

If you need ideas for where to eat, there were 3 places very close by that were absolutely delicious:

-Caficultura - this place was right on the corner of Calle O'Donnell and Calle San Francisco; It's a breakfast/lunch place and closes early.

-Dragonfly- this was just a block away on the corner of Calle O'Donnell and Calle Fortaleza; It's a latin/asian fusion restaurant and bar that opens at 6pm, and is amazing

-Triana Tapas & Flamenco - this was about 3-4 blocks away, and I believe on the corner of Calle Recinto Sur and Calle San Justo; this was a Spanish themed restaurant and had super delicious mofongo (a must have dish while in PR) - they also had a free salsa dancing class around 7pm

I highly recommend this apartment for your stay, it's a great price and is a perfect spot to get a genuine Puerto Rican experience. I would definitely plan another trip here.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was very accurate. It is a small cozy apartment that had everything needed. I stayed with two of my friends and we stayed very comfortably with no problems at all. The kitchen had all the essentials (dishes, cooking utensils etc.), as well as the bathroom. (towels, toothpaste, shampoo etc). The property was very clean and in perfect conditions. The apartment also had air conditioning that cooled the whole apartment as well as wifi. The owners terrific and made sure we had everything we needed at all times. The owners was very friendly and kind and were more than willing to help out in any way possible. They also recommended a lot of different bakeries and restaurants around El Viejo San Juan which we really enjoyed. What sold us the most on this apartment was the location. It is right by the Plaza de Colon and is close to everything. We were able to walk to grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, and the historical sites near by.

I would definitely recommend this property. We had a fantastic stay and our trip would not have been the same without the owners and the great location of this apartment!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

David was very easy to work with. He was quick to respond to emails and questions. The location was amazing! Walking distance to everything you can need. There is a cafe on the corner called Caficultura that has amazing coffee and breakfast, perfect to start the day!

To be noted there are not any windows, but I considered that a plus because I was on vacation and it helped me sleep in. We didn't spend much time inside so the lack of windows wasn't a problem for us. We did have a minor appliance malfunction, but David was quick to respond to my texts and help with anything we needed.

Perfect in the heart of Old San Juan

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to stay in the heart of Old San Juan. Walk everywhere! Safe location with plenty of places to see and to eat. Small loft, but great for the amount of time we spent there. David and Carmen was always around to answer any questions, both prior to trip and during. If you really want a true Old San Juan experience, it doesn't get any better than this. The price is right also. I read other reviews and was pleasantly surprised that they were all accurate. Loft was exactly as described. Market close by for breakfast items, but also great place for breakfast that David recommended at bottom of our street. Plenty of towels and very clean.

Location was perfect!

  • 4 of 5

I wanted to have a location in the heart of Old San Juan that was easy to travel to and more affordable than the big hotels. I also wanted to have a kitchen to cook evening meals to save money. This loft was perfect. I enjoyed the nearby restaurants and shopping the loft was a nice quiet retreat after a long day of walking and exploring the forts. The old building has a lot of charming details.
