I traveled to Old San Juan with my two young adult children. We desired a rich cultural living situation within walking distance of restaurants, the forts, plazas and markets so that we could authentically experience OSJ. Hotels feel impersonal and antiseptic, and so I looked into many properties in the months prior to our vacation trying to find just the right historic quarters, and this rental went beyond all of my expectations. If you want to connect with a gorgeous city, I cannot recommend this apartment more.

The high ceilings, dark woodwork and dramatic doors, windows and tiles made me feel like I had stepped back in time. Everything was simple, exquisitely clean and comfortable, yet still representative of the Spanish/Moorish influences of the old city. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything required by a picky cook like me. We shopped and cooked easily, and the nearby Super Max is nicely stocked. The beds were very comfortable. The salon terrace overlooks calle San Sabastian, and the wi-fi, Roku and air conditioning work perfectly. My son slept in the loft and my daughter and I shared the bedroom. We did not use the pull-out beds because we were happy to bunk together. We left early and returned late, happy and exhausted each evening, crashing in our comfortable beds.

The property managers, Vida Urbana, are tremendous, organized and accessible. They clearly love this property and take good care of it. They quite correctly advise that this rental is situated above a very lively bar/tavern, on a super-safe, late-night street. Getting tired by walking around all day and running a fan at night will help you sleep through the noise, and you can always bring earplugs.

We arranged several excursions, and found it easy to meet our tour transportation at the Sheraton down by the waterfront. I mention this to underscore that we loved walking all over OSJ, stopping for coffee on the way and conversing with the kind sanjuaneros we encountered on our journeys. Do not rent a car if you stay in the old city, because the blue cobble-stoned streets are narrow and difficult to maneuver. We took the bus to the beach at Isle Verde, and walked from the bus station. Again, we came to OSJ to explore and find adventures, and a car would have been a barrier to our authentic experience.

If you enjoy hotels, go stay at one. This property is full of comfort, history and heart. You can save money by taking the bus, cooking in the apartment and walking to the forts.
