Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in San Juan - Old San Juan Artsy Loft

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, sleeps 5

This apartment is unique! This amazing artsy loft is in a historic building. The loft is on street level. No carrying luggage up a steep flight of stairs or walking down some dark corridor to reach it. 20 ft. high ceilings and marble floors in the lower level. Hard wood stairs (comfortable to climb, not too steep) lead you to the second level where the beautifully designed kitchen, the dining area and bedrooms are located. All hard wood floor on the second level. An original mural by artist Sofia Maldonado adorns the hallway. Stunning contemporary art pieces on all the walls.

The spacious master bedroom has a queen size bed. The second room has two twin beds and a small futon. In total we can accomodate 5 people. Most apartments in Old San Juan have just one bathroom. Ours has 1 1/2 bathrooms. Full bathroom on the first floor and 1/2 bathroom on the second. Quiet, comfortable, spacious, a/c in all areas. Condominium has two interior patios in common areas. This apartment is very elegant! You will live a luxurious vacation if you stay in the Artsy Loft.

You can easily walk all Old San Juan and dine at the most renowned restaurants, visit the forts and see the most spectacular views of the San Juan Bay and Atlantic Ocean. Starbucks, Old Harbor Brewery, local bars, the most lively 'plazas' are one and two blocks away. Long walk (with Atlantic Ocean View) to Escambron beach, Condado and Miramar or take the bus or a cab! Taxi and bus stand are a block away. Visit Old Sand Juan and experience the Old City in the most extraordinary artsy setting!!

About Lourdes or Sofia

I love Old San Juan. It is like a small village full of charm, history and wonderful people! You haven't been to Puerto Rico if you don't stay in Old San Juan.

Lourdes or Sofia purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Lourdes or Sofia chose San Juan

We needed a lot of imagination when we bought this loft! We had to rebuild it from scratch. But that is the fun of it! Today, it is nowhere near what it was then. The restauration took over a year. But we knew it was going to be unique! And it is!! Marble and hard wood floors, exquisite contemporary art, all new appliances. It is the Artsy Loft! Unique in Old San Juan.

What makes this apartment unique

It is situated in one of the best streets in San Juan, close to all the great restaurants and hotels. Completely repaved, Tetuan Street goes from the Teatro Tapia up to la Capilla del Cristo. It is a wonderful promenade. It is also close to the port and the beautiful Paseo La Princesa. Walking distance from taxi stand, bus stop and parking lots. What more could I ask for!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lourdes y Miguel son extraordinarios anfitriones: amables, puntuales y simpáticos. El departamento tiene una ubicación inmejorable, una refinada decoración, se mantiene pulcrísimo y está perfectamente equipado. Se trata de un lugar ideal para descubrir el viejo San Juan. Muy recomendado. Lourdes et Miguel sont d'une gentillesse sans faille. L'appart est plus que propre, parfaitement équipé et sa situation en plein centre du vieux Saint-Jean, idéal pour découvrir ou profiter de cette ville charmante.

Great time at a great place in Old San Juan

  • 5 out of 5
Artsy loft is the perfect place to stay at Old San Juan. We have been staying here for the last 3 years for the San Sebastian Festival. Is is right in the culinary center of Sofo and walking distance to all those great restaurants. Highly recommended and definitely will be back next year.

What a splendid vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
What a splendid vacation! The apartment is clean,comfortable and well maintained. My daughter, her husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 8-day stay. It was the perfect location for long walks near the port or a late coffee or a Pina colada on the small square half a block away. A 5 minute walk would take us to great restaurants, either for Puerto Rican food at El Jibarito or for a sumptuous White Bean soup at Marmelade. We would pick up the free trolley a block away to El Moro then walk down the ramparts or the colorful streets of Old San Juan. The apartment fully met our expectations .The high ceiling, the fans and the artwork made the living room a joy to relax in after our long daily walks. Even though the “Artist loft “ is right on Calle Tetuan, the street is quiet and none of the festive pre-Christmas noise would reach our two bedrooms upstairs. We only wished we had screens in the upstairs windows, so we could at times open them to the quiet inner courtyards and turn off the air conditioners. Lourdes was very helpful throughout our stay which was definitely too short. We strongly recommend the Artsy loft. And as the song says : “un dia volveré…..a soñar otra vez…en mi viejo San Juan”. We will return again.

Awesome stay in el viejo San Juan

  • 4 out of 5
Comfortable, roomy,
Beautiful. And the best thing about this loft is that it's so close to everything. We kept our rental car in doña fela parking even though it was more expensive , but it was close, accessible always and safe. We were pleasantly surprised, since usually the pics are nicer than the place but it was exactly as depicted in the website.

The Artsy Loft was clean and comfortable...with great/easy access to Old San Juan. The listing description had it right for locale, layout, amenities. Lourdes provided excellent customer service. I would recommend this location to other travelers who want the experience of living there, rather than just being a typical tourist. This includes all the late-night activity (BTW, be ready for the loud restaurant staff nearby cleaning late at night and prepping early in the morning) to the morning/daytime activity at area cafes, restaurants, bars, etc. While we felt safe in the Loft, we think the front windows on the doors that face the street could use more secure materials--rather than just the wooden shutters/blinds. We thoroughly enjoyed renting bicycles and touring around at our own pace the sights of Old San Juan and (modern) San Juan and its beaches. We took a day trip with a small tour (total of 6 people) to the El Yunque Rainforest using a small company that had great/personalized service called Bespoke Lifestyle Management. Each night we were so thrilled to return to our cozy Arsty Loft, make our own dinner and mojitos when we were feeling up to it, and just unwind in a relaxing environment...our home for a week. Te quiero, Viejo San Juan!

The loft was roomy and was in a great location. We are 4-2 adults and 2 children. It was close to restaurants and evening performances on the square. We enjoyed ourselves!
