We came for our honeymoon and the hotel was EXACTLY like the photos online. Within walking distance to many shops, places to eat, and historic landmarks. If you have a rental, their sister company offers parking for $20/day for Villa Herencia guests. The continental breakfast included with the stay was light, yet filling.

Discretely tucked away right in the middle of everywhere you want to be in Old San Juan, an inconspicuous little door opens up into a beautiful, magical, private boutique hotel par excellence! With four rooms on the ground floor encircling an open air courtyard, and four more upstairs on the garden terrace, this place is designed for serenity and atmosphere.... More

Ok, let's get the negatives - the rooms are small but for what is lacked in space, is made up for by service and a beautiful property.
