The place has a walgreens nearby and places to eat. It is very noisy as it has several businesses is a drink near area college students. If you like the rumba you'll like this hotel, but if like me you like quiet places I recommend you find another hotel. The noise did not let me sleep, I had asked for...

The hotel is tolerable if you're on a budget, however please note it is not in the best location to explore the whole of Puerto Rico unless you have a car! It's close to the metro for access to the metropolitan area but there is no public transport available that can transport you to the rain-forest or the docks for...

We spent 3 days before a cruise. The owner, Elena, did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. A moderately priced hotel, but very comfortable and clean!!! In the university area so a bit noisy on street side. Good restaurants close by. A Japanese restaurant called Zen next door which we ate at several times. Very good and reasonable. A...

Dreams Hotel is perfectly situated to visit the must see places in Puerto Rico. Public transportation (both bus and train) are accessible to this hotel location.

We arrived around 9PM after a long day on Culebra Island. We could not remember where to park. We drove around the block a couple times.

If you're looking to save money, get a great value, and be in a good location this is a great place to say. A 10 minute drive to the center hotspot of the city of San Juan, the room is good for the value and the service was also worth the price.

We stayed at Dreams Hotel for one night after a cruise. The rooms were clean and well kept. The beds were not comfortable and hard to sleep in. The doors were not solid and we're thinking metal. We could hear everyone's conversations in other rooms. Really for the price it's not to bad. We didn't eat the toast for breakfast.
