Fantastic Place and Location
Amazing. Amazing location, very authentic. Very clean, staff was very friendly.

Very Good 8.0
We loved the hotel but decided we really wanted to be in a different environment for our 5 day trip. Leshla was more than accommodating. She found us a beautiful beachfront hotel in Condado and was extremely gracious to us in every way. If a small, boutique hotel in Old San Juan is what you desire, El Convento is for you!

Nice but...
Requested wake up call didn’t happen but staff was very friendly. Bed linen horrible. Very clean. Love the ambiance. Location is great. Too costly overall.

Highly recommend
Spent one night with our 2 children. Went in a week day and we were able to check in early. Great spot to walk out and explore all of old San Juan. Upon check out we were given a day pass to sister property on the beach, and spent our last day at that property at the beach and pool before a night flight home. Overall very good experience. Old world charm, everyone very friendly. Very clean .

We have been to San Juan many times. This was our first time at El Convento. Beyond the beauty and location of the hotel, the staff was very friendly and responsive. We highly recommend this hotel.

Loved it
Beautiful place. Room was great and customer service was awesome. Close to walk to pretty much where you want to go in Old San Juan. Would stay here again.

Weekend Get Away
We're so glad we chose El Convento for our 3 night weekend birthday get away. Staying in Old San Juan rather than in the big beach hotels provided us a chance to indulge ourselves in the city's history and architecture as well as the many shops and restaurants. We just lucked out choosing a festival weekend with great salsa bands, local food vendors and crafts down on the Princess Passeo. El Convento is perfectly located for exploring Old Town and we loved the classic old style elegance as well as the friendly staff. After a morning of walking, the hot tub and pool area (OK, it's small but I don't need to swim laps to enjoy the water) were perfect for relaxing. Glad we splurged on a 5th floor bay view room.
