About our location:
"This is a great place to fall into the culture of Puerto Rico and not be in a tourist hub. This is for a seasoned traveler who likes to really experience a new place rather than be catered to in some tourist money pit. This is an URBAN studio, this inland location is not near the beach, but guests can access key points of the city via public transportation" .
"This apartment is very good for people in the mid twenties or for retired europeans with a good sense of curiosity."
The studio apartment is located in a picturesque older and historic urban area ( Old Rio Piedras ) close to the University, with many shops, small restaurants, cafes and bars. The Metro is in the same street, so it is easy to get to ex. Old San Juan (Viejo San Juan) or the beach. So if you want to stay local, this is the place.
This studio apartment with a private bathroom and kitchenette in an unbeatable location near downtown in the heart of Rio Piedras, San Juan.
The apartment has a kitchenette (fridge, stove, toaster, microwave, pots/pans, and coffeemaker), full bed, and a twin bed. This is a non-smoking unit. Three people can sleep comfortably, but I have blankets and pillows if someone wants to camp out on the floor.

THE THEATER & PUB NEXT DOOR: We love the guys from LA BECKETT and their live music. However, this means there is music on thursday night. Groups range from Reggae, Punk, Trance, New Age, Classical, Dance Hall, 50's Bop, Hard Rock and more. Some are fantastic - others just getting started. Most guests love having the studio next door and we rarely have a problem - but this is something you should know before booking. Note: we always have earplugs available in the apartment if the band de jour is not your favorite genre.
Photo Identification is required on check-in ( I'll make a photocopy or will take a picture of it ).
