Stay at the Heart of Old San Juan! This charming 1BR apartment is right at the center of the Historic District, equipped with a full kitchen and bathroom, perfect for a nice vacation and the "living local" experience. Ideal for couples or families with children (accommodates approx. 2-4 people), we offer a QUEEN size bed and a FULL size futon –in the living room… an extra “mini” futon can accommodate an additional small child-. Central AC, Wireless Internet, TV, marble floors and ample closet space are among its many amenities; in addition, our guests can enjoy a read at the rooftop deck or some quiet time at the building’s indoor patio.
This apartment, located in Calle San José, offers easy access to every restaurant and shop in Old San Juan. Situated behind the Old San Juan Cathedral and a block from the El Convento Hotel, it is only a couple of blocks away from the Plaza de Armas –where you can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee with the locals-, SJ City Hall, the Fortaleza –Governor’s Mansion- and the Calle San Sebastián – famous for its yearly Festival de la Calle San Sebastián. It is walking distance to historic sites like the Castillo San Felipe del Morro, the Castillo San Cristobal and the traditional Parque de las Palomas. A short walk will take you to the beautiful Paseo La Princesa and the Old San Juan Port.
A few notes:
1. This apartment is on the third (3rd) floor and there are no elevators in the building...
2. It is an "inside" apartment, it doesn't have a balcony or windows looking out to the street.
3. Old San Juan has all the charm of an old historic town, but it also has the very old water supply system. You may encounter issues with inconsistent water pressure and sometimes NO water service at all. This usually resolves itself in a couple hours at the most; however, it may be possible that it’ll take longer… unfortunately, there’s nothing to do other than wait until it comes back.
