Authentic and Atmospheric Stay

“I wanted my friend to really experience Old San Juan. I chose El Convento because of it's location. They really have earned the Small Luxury Hotel status. Our stay was exceptional and memorable thanks to all the staff. My favorite was Patio Del Nispero. So loved the Caribe Benedict breakfast (every day).Thank you all. My friend already wants to make plans to return.” – Ruben Pagan

“When a hotel advertises itself as a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, and changes accordingly, it has set the bar very high for itself and sets the tone for you visit. There should be someone to greet you, perhaps a doorman is called for, there should be someone to take your baggage and accompany, or direct you to, the front desk. Since none of these things were present when we…” – Ricardo

    “When a hotel advertises itself as a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, and changes accordingly, it has set the bar very high for itself and sets the tone for you visit. There should be someone to greet you, perhaps a doorman is called for, there should be someone to take your baggage and accompany, or direct you to, the front desk. Since none of these things were present when we checked in, we toted our own luggage around, it put, shall I say a bad taste in the mouth. Yes the room itself was good, and the housekeeping staff was excellent but the view from the room was primarily of a wall that hadn't seen paint, as they say, since "Hector was a pup". The tapas restaurant advertised both Duck and Lamb, but we were informed that there was none even though the menu is apparently made up daily, and Xeroxed accordingly. The tapas bar also did not have any sherry to go with the tapas which is unusual but not exceptional. All in all a good hotel; but if your going to sell yourself as one of the small luxury hotels of the world, you have clearly stated that you have an extraordinary high standard to achieve, if it is you wish to attain it, good luck, but alas you did not achieve five star status in our case. Thank you”

    “Tasted really great food at the restaurant. Had expected just local choices but had international dishes on the menu.”

  • Perfect hotel

    “The hotel has managed to blend the charm of an old convent building and a modern hotel that was simply perfect. Moreover it was just across the San Juan Cathedral so that it was literally steps to another landmark but is also a landmark by itself.”
