Stayed at Decanter for just one night before a cruise.
If you want to explore the city and be just a short walk from "umbrella street" this is an excellent hotel to stay at.
Just be sure to book very well in advance, as pricing I found was very high for what you get.
Everything was great though, free coffee-tea service was a nice extra.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful!
Seriously this place is a gem. The rooms are all updated and new. The beds were super comfortable and the shower was beautiful. The LOCATION of this hotel is absolutely central to everything. It’s across the street from the Basilica. We did not rent a car. We walked everywhere. We saw everything in that dang city on foot!! What a great city and what a fantastic hotel. Super accommodating. Everyone was cheerful and kind and helpful. Rooftop bar was super fun. Out “tour of old San Juan” actually went through this hotel! LOL. Stay here. You’ll love it.
