Truly an Amazing Place. Why would you come to Old San Juan??? For the History and Art right?? That is EXACTLY what Gallery Inn is all about. It embodies the spirit of Old San Juan. Just to let you know, I am 40 years old, and I stayed here for 3 nights with my wife and toddler. We are both...

This hotel, located close to El Moro in Old San Juan, is not for everyone. The place is chock-a-block full of art: paintings and sculptures, many done by the transplanted New Yorker who owns the place. Any unused wall or floor space is occupied by plantings, fountains, antiques, collectibles and books, as well as parrots. The building is old, but...

We had a lovely stay with Jan and Marcuso at the Inn last week. Reviewers are spot-on when they talk about the maze of rooms, antiques, and the eclectic vibe here. We were in room "Amy" and found it lovely. The bed was comfortable, had a small balcony (basically you could just open the doors), and a small but sufficient...

The only thing I knew for sure before stepping foot in the Gallery Inn was that it would be unique. Little did I know that it would be the most wonderfully eclectic, relaxing inn that I have ever stayed at or probably ever will. Five stars is truly not enough for this place. When you first walk in, you're greeted...

There have been so many comprehensive reviews on The Gallery Inn and I agree with most of them in one way or another. Definitely do your research before going – read the Inn’s own description as well as those of fellow travelers, look at the pictures and really try to understand that this is a different type of experience.

If you are lucky, Jan D’Esopo will take to you and give you a guided tour of her well nurtured botanical collection and introduce you to each and every single one of her parrots, but to not impose yourself upon her, an artist needs time to decide who will enter the creative intimate frontiers. I was so lucky. I cannot...

We traveled last week to San Juan de Puerto Rico and booked five nights at the Gallery Inn. We were three people and stayed in a suite with king bed and sofa extension. The experience has been terrible, the price per night was $ 261 with taxes included. Nothing in this hotel corresponded with this price: no elevator, no staff...

We are truly sorry that the Gallery Inn experience was not what you hoped, and that you feel unsatisfied with the value of the experience that we offer. Everywhere on our website (and other points of sale) we try to emphasize the uniqueness of our Inn, and the historic elements of our 300 year old home, which provide an experience...

My 15 year old traveled to Puerto Rico with a group for a service project. While at the airport, he realized he had misplaced his wallet and called the hotel to see if it was there. They not only found the wallet, but said they would mail it to our home. When the box arrived, we were surprised to see...

I traveled solo to San Juan and had no desire to be in a generic resort, no matter how lovely it might be. I wanted the history and location of Old San Juan. The Gallery Inn provided this and more. It's located on Norzagaray midway between El Morro and San Cristobal forts and has a great view of La Perla...
