About the property

Ask About Our 3 Units in Old San Juan

This is a charming old San Juan first floor apartment in the San Sebastian street, close to all the restaurants in the famous San Sebastian Street. There, you will experience as a local this magical 500 year old city called old San Juan. It has one bedroom, and a cozy living room with all the modern amenities within the ambiance of a high ceiling colonial apartment. The master bedroom has a full size bed.

The kitchen facilities will allow you to explore your culinary fancy on those days that you choose not to eat in one of the many restaurants within walking distance in Old San Juan.

The apartment is located within a block of San Felipe, a 27 acre military fortress built by the Spaniards during colonial times and in active use until WWII. Just outside the building you will enjoy the hustle and bustle at San Sebastian Street, famous for its yearly festival in the month of January. The apartment is located in the residential part of San Sebastian but within two blocks of the bustling and partying of the street, which is the address for many of the best restaurants and bars of the city.

Half a block north is the most amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean and one block lies what I call the 'front lawn' of the apartment: a beautiful grass area tucked between the Fort, Norzagaray Street and the Ocean that will allow you to practice your tai chi chuan, read a book or smoke a good cigar.

If gambling is your cup of tea, the apartment is located six blocks from Sheraton Hotel that has a 10,000 square feet casino.

There are over fifteen public squares in Old San Juan all within walking distance from the apartment, one across the street, which will give many hours of relaxation and entertainment.

Cristo Street, the mecca of outlets and fashion stores is five blocks away and the famous jewelries of San Juan await you in Fortaleza Street.

If you are a cigar smoker you will be four and a half blocks away from the best cigar lounge in the Caribbean and possibly the east coast.

Old San Juan has a sun deck with a jacuzzi in the seafearers facilities that is just four blocks away.

A beautiful secluded (almost secret) beach is 10 walking minutes away. Don't believe those that tell you old San Juan does not have a beach, they just do not know. If you want a full blue flag beach Escambron is a 10 minute taxi cab ride away.

LOCATION LOCATION , in the heart of OLD San Juan

  • 5 of 5

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION, if you want to be in heart of OLD San Juan for a few days this is the place to go. The apartment was very clean with all the utensils you way need. They had several towels the bathroom was clean. To my surprise the apartment has an inflatable mattress that was not listed in the information. This is a great apartment for a few days but the parking is a problem there is little parking and during the weekends it gets crazy. So if you plan to stay in old San Juan only it’s perfect because everything is walking distance. For breakfast try La Tortuga which is in the corner of the street.

Great location, service improvement needed

  • 3 of 5

This apartment was in a great location, easily to walk to everything in Old San Juan. The property manager was good about communication prior to our stay and answered all questions, even offering to arrange our pick-up from the airport by the housekeeper. However, the housekeeper did not arrive at the airport to pick us up and had not even left the apartment yet when we called, so we ended up taking a cab. She was also late to pick us up on our return to the airport. The apartment itself was in ok shape, with some minor maintenance issues (broken lock on inside door), and cleanliness issues (stained sheets, toilet not clean). While I would highly recommend a visit to Old San Juan (don't miss the Morro, dinner at Marmalade, and just wandering the old streets), I would probably stay somewhere else in the future.

Owner's Response: After your review, management adjustments were made. Now the keys are in a lockbox so no one has to wait for housekeeper to get the keys. That is a huge improvement and hope to serve great all other guests coming to Old San Juan. Also we have a new housekeeper. Thank you
