Beautiful apartment near everything! AMAZING stay!
When booked this apartment for almost a week and enjoyed every minute! The balcony and architecture is gorgeous. Very convenient to have access to a full kitchen and the bedrooms were extremely comfortable. Location cant be beat and every night we would walk right downstairs to discover a new restaurant or bar. In previous reviews the noise was a big complaint, but it was more ambient noise that sounded like vibrant nightlife so, for us it added to the charm. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants the convenience of a perfect apartment with the best of Old San Juan only steps away!
Fun Fun Fun
Perfect for us
San Sebastián street is party central
Great space with the balcony
The master bedroom was quiet and we had no problem sleeping
Enjoyed the huge open doors with the sounds of San Sebastián coming through
Great place and location but VERY loud
The apartment is big and very nice. Is very convenient for seeing old town and we often popped back in quickly as was close to everything. I had read it was on a noisy street but it is on THE noisy block and is above a bar/restaurant and across the street from another so at least on the weekend (when we were there) it is very noisy (hard to sleep) until 3 am. That said we liked both those bars/restaurants. Just know what you're getting into and be up for the loud location.
Great spot in old San Juan - close to everything but be aware the apartment is surrounded by bars.
Great place to stay. However be aware that Calle San Sebastián is one of the noisiest streets in Old San Juan. For example bars stay open till 3 am on Friday night and the music from next door vibrates through the apartment. Excellent bar restaurant downstairs. Thanks Wanda and Heidi. Wifi iffey! Good management.
To our future Guests: We would love to welcome you in our gorgeous balcony rental, if you come to celebrate late night life in PR. You'll love this place. If you come for a quiet vacation, please do not choose this apartment - we have other quiet options and will gladly help to educate you on our choices.
We are very sorry to learn that Chris did not read our ad and therefore was somewhat disappointed with his choice. However the apartment is advertised as exactly what he decided to give us 3 stars on, the description reads:
"The front room opens to the street; and it might feel noisy at times, because of the nature of Calle San Sebastian – it is a lively, tropical restaurant & bar street."
If lively & late night fun sounds good to you, we'll be glad to welcome you.
We loved our rental apartment. Clean beautiful and Vida Urbana made sure we were completely satisfied with our accommodations We stayed in this beautiful

Thank you for sharing your experience, Sherry. We would be glad to welcome you any time again. It is a pleasure to host wonderful Guests like you. The VidaUrbanaPR Team
Old world flair with modern amenities.
Our stay in OSJ was the perfect ending of our Puerto Rico vacation and this apartment made our stay even more memorable. Being able to stay in the middle of this historic city and to have all the modern amenities made this apartment an excellent choice for our last days in PR. WiFi, Air Conditioned rooms, great view and Old World charm made this the cherry in our vacation sundae.

The closest unofficial beach is in front of the Capitol Building in about 10-15 walking minutes from almost anywhere in Old San Juan. The nearest blue flag beach is called El Escambron and can reached in about 25-30 minutes walking along the Atlantic Ocean or in about 5 minutes by car/ taxi or bus. Old San Juan has a bus station from where you can go to Plaza Las Americas, the biggest mall in the Caribbean, to the Convention Center, as well as to Condado and Isla Verde, the other two main tourist spots along the coast of San Juan. Condado and Isla Verde are the modern parts of the city and have great beaches, hotels & casinos & much more...
