          The hotel is within walking distance from the forts and the harbor and it is also nice to just wander thru the streets around the hotel.
          The free trolley stops right in front of the hotel.

          The room is basic. It has no window, but the high ceiling makes the room look so big that you don't miss the window.
          The bathroom is also big enough and everything is clean.

          The staff is friendly and helpful.

          I would stay here again.

          Location is good for walking to the sights but our stay was marred by a lift that wasn't working properly (we were on the 4th floor) and no hot water. The next day reception gave us a key to another room to shower but it was inconvenient. There was no window to our room and whilst it did say that on the booking engine it is quite strange! It could be rectified by having a glass panel on the door so at least a bit of light from the interior of the building shows through.

          During the past 2 days I have explored, researched and documented sites in the historic district of Old San Juan to gain a more comprehensive understanding of American, Caribbean, and Latin American history. I walked along Paseo De Princesa which surrounds La Muralla or the wall surrounding much of San Juan which was built by Spanish colonists over 400 years ago and withstood attacks by English, Dutch, ...

The lighthouse has had a few attempts to revive her but have fallen short though our visit there did show new boards in place to keep it from falling to complete ruins. Perhaps there is still hope for the it yet.

Ryan and I perch at the bar and gorge ourselves on ceviche while conversing with the bartender about the best places to go in San Juan and his family visits to Maryland. I imagine the baby thanking me for the Omega-3s and Vitamin C as we eat and chat. While I sip on my pineapple juice, my husband enjoys the local beer Medalla. Of course, in the spirit of cultural awareness, I steal a mouthful from his can. A refreshing light beer.
