Great location. Clean unit. All the amenities!
The place is as charming as the pictures. Maybe even more so! Very comfy bed and lots of great books to read. The neighbors were a bit noisy occasionally and of course weekends are a bit more ruckus in this area, but all in all, fantastic location and wonderful place to chill. We even did some gourmet cooking here in the unit. (Foodies) One small, quiet beach was close by but a bit rocky. We rented a Jeep for one day and visited El Yunque and other beaches. Had a wonderful Alcapurrias at Piniones. First time in Puerto Rico and we will be back. The people here really appreciate tourists, especially after Hurricane Maria and they’re so kind and helpful.
We had a wonderful week in Old San Juan. This rental was ideally located for all our activities and exploring. We had lovely views of the ocean and it was quiet and comfortable. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend this property!
We enjoyed our recent stay in Old San Juan. The rental unit is as advertised. The view is magnificent, and the location is great. The apartment has old world charm. The person checking us in was professional and knowledgable. We would definitely like to visit again.
Great apartment at a great location
Just got back from an 8 day stay in Old San Juan. The apartment was great! Had everything we needed for our stay (fully working kitchen, bottled water, washer and dryer, comfortable bed, plenty of space, and a great balcony). This is a very clean and up to date apartment in a great location overlooking the ocean and a magnificent fort. The neighborhood is wonderful with some very nice neighbors. Next time we come to PR we will stay here again. I don't; think I can think of one complaint or suggestion to make it better.
Tropical cultural experience!
We enjoyed sitting out on the terrace feeling the magnificent ocean breeze, drinking wine, looking at the San Cristobal National Park, together with the blue ocean and the cruise ships coming in day and night. We also enjoyed walking around colonial Old San Juan, everyday we experienced something new. We learned from the perspective as a resident of the culture of Old San Juan. Wanda greeted us and made the check in and check out easy. It has a great library, lights and remote controls were labeled to make it easy.
Perfect place to stay in Old San Juan
We will never forget the fantastic week we spent at this apartment on Calle Sol. It was the perfect location in Old San Juan with a beautiful ocean view at the back and a charming street view from the front. The apartment is easy walking distance to the rest of Old San Juan (if you like walking and don’t mind hills) and is in a quieter side of town. We did not rent a car during our stay and we were happy with that decision after seeing the traffic and demand for on-street parking spots. We used the bus to get to Isla Verde, the ferry to visit Bacardi, and just walked everywhere else.
The apartment had all the amenities we needed such as a coffee maker, hair dryer, and plenty of towels. There is an AC, but we never needed to use it because of the many ceiling fans and nice ocean breeze. We often kept the terrace doors open, but closed them at dusk to avoid attracting insects (although we saw hardly any mosquitoes anywhere). There is also plenty of interesting reading material available in French, Spanish and English.
Although it’s on the quiet side of the OSJ, there is currently a major construction project going on at the end of the street so it’s quite noisy during the day. With the front terrace doors closed, it’s less noticeable. Also worth mentioning is the shuttered, glass-free interior windows which are in the bedroom and face the interior of the building. You can often hear noise from the neighboring condos through these windows (you can see these windows across from the bed in one of the photos). This was an adjustment since it’s not something we’ve ever seen before, but it added to the charm and didn’t disturb us. But, it could be an issue for anyone needing total quiet for sleeping. Overall, we highly recommend this apartment and can’t wait to return.
