    Historical Traveler Reviews S.J. Suites San Juan

    Just got to love it


    Loved it, Loved it, Loved it. Smelled just like new, it's refreshing and very clean. Staff was way cool! Highly recomend it for those who seek privacy.

    Party Time


    The moment I got into the hotel was an experience. The service was excellent. My room was in perfect condition and very clean. I went to the gym several times and it was great I really had a good and I will recommend. The hotel for anyone that wants to have a perfect vacation. I am very sure that I will be back on my next vacation.

    Wonderfull for business trips


    I'm used to staying in different hotels when I travel to San Juan, and I heard about this hotel from an article in the newspaper. I decided to give it a try. This hotel is perfect for business travelers who wish to have some privacy while they do their job right. It was a quiet and relaxing experience. Rooms are always clean and the staff is all smiles from the first moment you step inside the lobby, until the moment you check out. For night life, Old San Juan is just great, as always.



    Charming, this is the perfect word to describe this hotel. From the staff, to the rooms, the breakfast, the security.

    This was an awesome xperience for me. I have to travel often to Puerto Rico do to my job and beacuse of my work I need a secure place to stay. And I got this from the moment I set foot in this hotel. Nobody, I mean nobody can come inside the hotel if you are not staying there. And the great thing is that they've got a security guard on post at night time. This is a great hotel and they have very spacious suites, unlike other small hotels. See you soon SJ SUITES.

    Traquility and glamourous


    My huband Alexander and I weren't very familiar with PUERTO RICO,not to mention SAN JUAN, but I was told by a close friend about this hotel that her and her fiance went to. Being not too familar with the city and not knowing what to anticipate, the hotel gave us a great welcoming with its tranquility and comfort and gave us an overall feeling of this great and marvelous city and we did not hesitate to stay a couple extra days.The customer service was excellent and very devoted to fulfilling our needs. It was a great get away from the busy city life of LOS ANGELES. I loved the stay

    Great Hotelito!!!!!!!!


    We had a great time staying in this little but elegant hotel in Viejo San Juan. We where not sure about booking this hotel beacuse we are used to the hype of the more trendy and bigger hotels, but this small hotel has nothing to envy from the big guys. The rooms are spectacular, huge and really comfortable. It's a very quiet and private hotel even though it was completely booked. Definitly a place to come back to.



    Wonderful jewelry store and indescribable art gallery are my favorites amenities of this small hotel. I highly recommender it, not only for business trips, but also for pure pleasure. Old San Juan is a beautiful historical city, is worthwhile staying in the area. Across the street from SJ you can find a Payless Store, Radio Shack, McDonalds and even Subway. The rooms are huge and clean. I was awarded my 20% corporate discount. Bilingual staff welcomes you every day. It was nice after a day of sight seeing or shopping to be able to walk to our room and not have to deal with a taxi or car. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to San Juan, particularly anyone who is cruising out of the city. It is a nice quiet place to begin or end a trip on a ship.

    Tranquility and Elegance


    I travel to Puerto Rico at least once a month on bussines, this is definitely the place to stay. It is a very quiet hotel, and also very private. They have super sized rooms, all of them are like this, trust me, I had a tour. Internet service was provided well. The rooms are always clean and smell great, Thanks to Olga! Who I even had to speak in sign language but understood me perfectly. Staff is well trained. And the owner of this hotel is also the owner of a beautifull jewelry store that's located at the first floor. Needless to say I spend some quality time in there.

    Great location, everything is near this hotel. I enjoyed it very much. I'll be back next month!!!!

    Excellent location, I'll be back next year.


    Small hotel with spacious-cozy rooms and friendly personnel. We walked to historic places like, El Morro and San Cristobal fortress. We really enjoyed our staying because is not only the new hotel in the area, but the prices are

    WOW, great. I'll be back next year. Thanks S.J. Suites

    It's the real thing


    Yes, it is the real thing. You get what you really pay for. My husband and I just got off a cruise at the pier in Old San Juan, and went in a hotel hunting safari, of all the places we went this is the one we most liked. The staff was super attentive and showed us the different types of rooms they had available, before we decided to stay. The hotel is very private and very secure. They served a delightful breakfeast that is not your typical Continental, you get coffee, tea, hot chocolate. different juices, sandwiches, muffins, danishes, cereal, the works. This hotel is very centric and the street it is in has everything, every restaurant you could imagine, stores, a super cool gym that we enjoyed even more with our hotel discount, and we enjoyed it all; even tough we almost could'nt get out off bed. This are the comfiest beds, OH GOD, JAJAJA. No, seriously, we really want to thank everyone who gave us a real taste of what puertorican people really are.

    ... the four and a half hour flight, and woke happy just before the descent and stayed that way as we disembarked from the plane and claimed our luggage.
    We had waffled about renting a car due to the expense, but finally decided that it would be a good idea... and boy, was it. Puerto Rico is about 80 degrees Fahrenheit year round and having our own little pod of air conditioned semi-privacy would turn out to be absolutely crucial to the happiness and comfort ...

    ... you walk straight up to a very cool tent filled with tables, a bar, and ticket center. Tickets for Puerto Rican citizens are half off, but for me it was $12. We took a little trolley around the facility then entered the tour building. A nice guy from Orocovis took us around, but the tour was more like an attraction than anything else. You got to see some cool historical Bacardi stuff, and a replica of an old distillery system. But the real work was done all behind ...

    ... and there are parks and plazas every several blocks where you can sit in the shade for a bit, buy a sorbet, and people-watch.

    We had just happened upon such a plaza when I saw that it was a bus stop for the free shuttle service that the city provides, which stops at all the major attractions. The shuttle itself is two open air people-movers, similar to those at Disneyland that take you from the parking lot to the park. It's hop on, hop off, and we decided ...

She comes to take our order, realizes we don’t speak Spanish, and runs away, returning a few minutes later with an English-speaking friend of the owner. With this man’s help, I order the red snapper and Ryan orders beefsteak with mofongo. Mofongo is a Puerto Rican dish made of mashed plantains and cassava. My red snapper comes as a complete fish, breaded ...
