Historic Spanish Stay Jan 11, 2017
I chose this hotel because it looked like a small, quiet and historic house. I was right. It was built in 1885 when Puerto Rico was part of the Spanish Empire. It was originally temporary accommodation for nuns arriving from Spain. They have 8 unique rooms with the original wooden floors and vaulted ceilings. Each room is also decorated with antique furniture and paintings by local artists. The beds are very comfortable and the hotel is absolutely quiet.
The rest of this amazing bed & breakfast is something to see. The reception has beautiful tiled floors, a high ceiling and a guest bar. It’s actually an ‘honour’ bar. You help yourself and write down what you drink. Available 24 hours a day. The breakfast room truly shows its stately age and is full of local artists’’ paintings and antiques. The buffet is very good and relaxing.
Upstairs is the massive rooftop sun deck. It has a variety of places to sit and even sleep in the sun or under cover. You will share the sunlight with several local cats that live on the adjacent roofs. They will not bother you if you don’t like cats, but will instantly be your friend if you are a cat lover. This is a great place to stay. I had a wonderful night’s sleep, a great breakfast and a bit of sun worshipping on the roof with several friendly cats. It’s also a 2-3 minute walk to the heart of Old San Juan. Highly recommend by me.
