Safe Hotel in Old San Juan Puerto Rico-Excellent room-food-bev-staff
The Hotel Staff is bilingual, loves travelers, will always say hello, will help you find your way around, will feed you until you are stuffed, will make you feel like you are in a family home. This location is across the street from one of the oldest Catholic Cathedrals in North America. Centrally located in Old San Juan for UBER rides, two ancient forts and fabulous restaurants within a block or two. Police are everywhere protecting your safety.
Main elevator kept breaking down with immediate repair by local Contracted company. Any baggage moves handled by Hotel. They helped us totally through this minor problem.
The best of Old San Jaun
Beautiful hotel, wonderful hosts, located in an old world city.
All around great, don't know what to feature in he
Every staff interaction was terrific. Friendly, eager, helpful, welcoming. Front desk, restaurant (tapas bar, food and staff shine!) History just walks the halls with you! The rooftop pool and hot tub with harbor view at sunset was something special. Then we left a coat behind, and discovered it after our cruise ship left, they packed it up and Shipped it home.
Having to leave so soon. Should have booked a much longer stay!
Immaculate historical hotel
The attention to detail and quality was evident in the furnishings and finishes of the hotel. The staff as courteous and responsive and the daily guest wine and cheese reception was a nice touch. It's location is hard to beat and the hotel blends well into the historical city of Old San Juan.
There is a lot of traffic directly outside. Not good for early check in.
Beautiful with plenty of character
I liked everything. The staff was incredibly accommodating. The hotel itself was amazing and exactly what I wanted, which was a place with character and charm. Do yourself a favor and stay here.
It's a historic building with an invaluable art collection.
Their claim to have a pool is ludicrous.
Once a convent for 252 years, today Hotel El Convento is a European-style, romantic boutique hotel in the medieval, charming city of Old San Juan. It’s considered the neighborhood’s top upscale hotel filled with history presented thought Spanish antique treasures and modern amenities. This hotel is made for romance, yet business travelers and families find plenty here to love.
Old San Juan is a 500-year-old historic district within Puerto Rico’s sprawling capital. History buffs often visit just for the surrounding of history itself. Hotel El Convento is located on the picturesque Cristo Street and near the city’s second oldest park, Plaza of the Nuns, and the second oldest cathedral in the Americas, San Huan Cathedral. Guests are within walking distance to San Cristobal Fortress, Pablo Casals Museum, Galeria Nacional, and San Felipe del Morro Fortress. While located near key historical sites in Old San Juan, the hotel lacks in proximity to the beach.
El Convento's prime location is walking distance to many restaurants and bars within Old San Juan, but the boutique property offers three restaurants and bars on-site that often draw guests, locals, and tourists staying elsewhere. Two restaurants offer a very romantic setting and menu, as does the bar where large candles flicker. The third restaurant is casual and offers pizza, pasta, and craft beer. The outdoor terrace features a plunge pool and hot tub with gorgeous views, plus La Veranda Terrace includes daily wine, cheese, and crackers. For guests having to work, the lounge, library, and business center provide all necessary components. Meeting spaces, salons, a fitness center, and a beloved herb garden are also on-site.
Hotel El Convento is a destination unto itself with grand accommodations, unique historical atmosphere, and a romantic ambiance everyone falls in love with.
