It was sufficient for what I booked it for. We stayed the night before our Carnival Cruise docked. We got there after Midnight and we had no problems checking in. The elevator was broke however, the guy at the desk carried the heavy bags up for us.
The accommodations here are very basic. The interior rooms have no windows; the lights in my room were either obnoxiously bright or too dim. The shower was difficult as the pressure was very low and lacked temperature regulation. However, I will say the staff were very friendly and helpful during the stay. You could not ask for a better location in Old San Juan. You are literally less than 10 minutes walking from almost every major place you would want to visit. As many other reviews have stated, you do get what you pay for; however, if you are just looking for a place to crash as you explore the town, I would recommend giving this place a try.
