There are so many good things about The Gallery Inn. Every inch of the place has character and charm, a far cry from cookie cutter corporate hotel chains. My husband and I stayed in two different rooms--overnight in one of the small rooms at the top of a set of very narrow metal spiral stairs (we got to San Juan a day earlier than anticipated, and the hotel was able to accommodate us), and for 3 or 4 nights in the Nico room, which was one of the rooms at the front of the hotel with two gigantic doors that open onto a balcony and a stellar view of the ocean. Both rooms were lovely and full of art and unique decor, but the Nico room was so fantastic. It was a great home base during our trip.
The public areas were also wonderful. My husband and I loved the pool and hanging out on the deck with a glass of wine from the nearby honor bar. The breakfast was also nice every morning.

We walked to a restaurant attached to one of those fancy resorts and I have to say we probably had one of the most disappointing experiences I've had in a long time. Way over priced, the dishes didn't sound tasty, the waitstaff was curt, and when we ordered an appetizer both of our dishes were chipped. We ate out sad little plate of hummus and pita, paid our $20 ...
... of San Juan, enjoying the breezes that pass by? All in all, it was one of the best parts of my trip.
Afterward, we took a trip down to Old San Juan, which is one of my favorite parts of Puerto Rico. The streets are sprawling with tourists from all over, but I enjoy hearing the familiar accents and seeing others enjoy Puerto Rican hospitality. The houses and streets are close together, but beautifully decorated and colorful. I stopped into Old Harbor ...
... of the island. The water stretched out for miles to our right, with the water crashing on the rocks far below us. This part of the city used to be encompassed by a fort, so the road follows along what what used to be the ramparts of the fort and is several hundred feet above the ocean. We passed San Cristobal, one of the 18th century spanish forts, which oversees the waters north of the island and is the largest fortification built by the Spanish in the New World. ...
... has “casino” in the name, I somehow didn’t think it meant a place of gambling. Since casa in Spanish means “home” and ino is the diminutive suffix in Italian—for the record, I speak neither Spanish nor Italian—I thought "casino" was referring to suites or small guesthouses. No, it was referring to a casino.

... and have lunch at Mallorca Cafiteria, our friend Vadim recommended it. Very interesting. Very old School. Servers in black and white. We had a ham and swiss sandwich that is served hot on a sweet bun and covered with powdered sugar. It was very yummy. We went to Castillo San Felipe del Morro for a look around this amazing old fort. Construction on this fort began in 1539 by the Spanish. It ...
