Not to bad but can be better.
Parking is at times hard to find. The neighborhood was very ugly unfortunately. We asked for a second blanket since the one on the bed was not big enough for both my daughter and I(we are not little women) and was told they couldn’t give us one. Only two pillows and they were not the greatest.

A little gem in the centre of Rio Piedras
Old building newly refurbished to a very good standard. Good location adjacent to the train station. Reception is 24 hours and very helpful. Decent breakfast and the room was excellent. Very clean and well equipped. The only down side is that there is no lift but that is because it's a old building. It does boast a lovely little courtyard area on the first floor.

Acceptable stay, felt safe
The hotel stay was acceptable. The room was small but comfortable. The staff is very friendly. I would recommend the hotel to consider some type of black out curtains for the door. Even though the doors are fogged, light can still get in which affected my sleep a little. The light from the outside shinned through at night alot. I will say i absolutely loved that you have to be buzzed in and out of the hotel. Also having a polic station at the corner was a huge plus. I never had a concern for myself or my cars safety. Also it would be nice for someone to come clean the room daily without me asking. No one cleaned or took the trash out the 3 days I was there. If you are looking for location this not the place but if you have a car it is easily accessible. Also the train station is next door.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this hotel. the decor was everything. my issue is the AREA. if I could pack this hotel up and move it to a different environment, I would. there need to be some type of hotel bus service to the activities at the beach area or to Old San Juan. also the are no local food spots. so to go out in venture for food spots.

Clean, functional and bright...not so quiet
Clean, bright, cheerful. Located on a picturesque square convenient to the Univ of Puerto Rico Rio Pedras, but not much else. Next door to train station (but SJ's trains only offer limited coverage of the city). Used Uber for most things. Not many restaurants in walking distance. Also, the sound carries, so if you need quiet to sleep this may not be the place for you. Rooms have microwave, fridge and sink, so you can self cater.
