Amazing the owner and the staff. Is a family hotel which I love and they treat you like family making sure that you are comfortable and have everything you need. I will definitely recommend. Very clean and the room had everything we need towels soap shampoo. The area is safe to park outside.

Not to bad but can be better.
Parking is at times hard to find. The neighborhood was very ugly unfortunately. We asked for a second blanket since the one on the bed was not big enough for both my daughter and I(we are not little women) and was told they couldn’t give us one. Only two pillows and they were not the greatest.

Tremenda atención de parte de su staff. Cámaras alrededor y dentro de la propiedad. Todo limpio y su desayuno continental ok. No hay estacionamiento en la,propiedad es donde encuentres en los alrededores. En PR solo se usa UBER . Muy bueno y a tiempo. Precios económicos. En general no hubo ningún problema.

The building and room was very clean. They do not want you to use the room towels as beach towels but if you ask for beach towels they provide the biggest and exceptional beach towel there is. We were impressed with that accomodation. This hotel is located inland on the island. The neighborhood is clean and starting to come back to life. After talking to a local, they said the hurricane in 2017 hit them hard and then COVID really hurt as well for business. If you walk around the neighborhood you will see amazing art work, paintings, and murals that line the buildings. It truly was awing to the eye. The staff at Nest Hotel was friendly and the locals were just the same. This hotel sits on the corner of a square around an old church that is amazing to look at. On the corner there is also a police station, a bakery, ice cream shop, cafe, and the underground subway transportion along with some apartments. Parking wasn't too terrible. We were able to see our car from the hotel at all times. If you need amenities for your room, just ask the front desk. They were more than accomodating for us. The only complaint we have was for other guests that sat out in the corridors to visit, their voices would carry upwards and would make is seem much louder. The doors have a glass piece that you can't see in or out of but does let a lot of light through which makes the room very bright at night.

A little gem in the centre of Rio Piedras
Old building newly refurbished to a very good standard. Good location adjacent to the train station. Reception is 24 hours and very helpful. Decent breakfast and the room was excellent. Very clean and well equipped. The only down side is that there is no lift but that is because it's a old building. It does boast a lovely little courtyard area on the first floor.

The picture online are not an accurate representation of what you actually see when you arrive. My husband and I were actually told by the police that it was very unsafe for us to even attempt to walk anywhere around where this property is located.

Acceptable stay, felt safe
The hotel stay was acceptable. The room was small but comfortable. The staff is very friendly. I would recommend the hotel to consider some type of black out curtains for the door. Even though the doors are fogged, light can still get in which affected my sleep a little. The light from the outside shinned through at night alot. I will say i absolutely loved that you have to be buzzed in and out of the hotel. Also having a polic station at the corner was a huge plus. I never had a concern for myself or my cars safety. Also it would be nice for someone to come clean the room daily without me asking. No one cleaned or took the trash out the 3 days I was there. If you are looking for location this not the place but if you have a car it is easily accessible. Also the train station is next door.

They make you pay extra for towels ... ten dollars without telling me..they have no cots for extra guests... they tried to charge me extra for a guest...you have to request room service...when i requested it, she left the trash since the day I got there ... just made the bed. They were rude to us and they had a lot of issues with other guests. They're located in an unsafe and noisy ghetto
