    Very friendly and accommodating staff! Breakfast was delicious! Nice bonus was rooftop plunge pool. Excellent location in town right near all the major sites.

    The property is beautiful, rooms are spacious and luxurious, with comfortable beds and extra services that add to the experience, such as a 24/7 lounge for guests where you can get fresh fruit and water or, if you go at 6, free wine and cheese. The terrace pool and hot tub are very nice.

    Service is not consistent. For the first night the room was impeccable, the maid even turned on the radio to relaxing music and prepared the bed with chocolates on the pillows. On the second day I had to request maid service because they had not come to the room, and they did the bare minimum to tidy up. On the third date they even forgot a cleaning rag in the sink, and didn't prepare the bed at night. Reviewing service standards would take this beautiful hotel to the next level.

    Excellent service, cleanliness, love the chocolates on the pillows at bedtime, and the wine and cheese reception was perfect!

About

Overview

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.
