Seem to be having a service problem at the moment.Bar tender put a Pina Colada in a beer glass.Having to wait for the elevator because the service elevator wasn’t working? A tv doesn’t cost that much anymore.Probable time to change that 15 year old one.Running a hotel is a hard business,but running on past reputation does not help....

Looking to return in the future
El Convento hotel is in a great location. Just steps away from the Cathedral of San Juan, one of the oldest buildings in San Juan and the second oldest cathedral in the Americas. The original structure was inaugurated as a Carmelite Convent in 1651. The rooms are very nice and clean. Fruits, water, coffee and tea are available free all day long on the third floor. The "cheese & wine" session from 6-7 pm each night was another enjoyable affair. There are a lot of restaurants nearby ranging from spanish to "criollo" food.

Perfect Week in Puerto Rico
EL Convento is one of the most beautiful hotels I have stayed. The open courtyard in the center was fantastic for a dining and bar area; I loved sitting outside but without any noise. The afternoon wine and cheese or tea was a nice touch after a day out. Since the location is in Old San Juan, I appreciated everything I wanted being an easy walk down cobblestone streets. The hotel staff were very helpful including helping us with riding hotel bikes to the sister hotel beach. The only feedback would be to improve wifi reliability.
