Brian V wrote a review 23 Jul
They only thing decent in that hotel is the lobby and the staff. The elevator doesn’t work and they don’t say nothing about it before booking (online). The Ceiling is leaking, very old mattresses, towel hangers are broken. They are in renovations. Sorry but pay a little bit more and bring your family to a decent place.

The room was comfortable, with a southern charm and close to the plaza and attractions. Check in was smooth and the staff was attentive. Great location and very accessible to the shops and restaurants.

Beautiful lobby and outside area. Great to hang out and have some drinks with friends. Was a little dissappointed the rooms were not as updated. They were clean though. Still some updating getting done in the downstairs. Elevator not working kind of sucked. Good experience overall. Ponce is beautiful.

Nice breakfast and attention. Beautiful historical place but needs some repairs in the rooms . Actually, as of 7/2021 the hotel is partially under construction and the elevator was out of order . Hope to visit again after after construction finish.

I was staying at this hotel last weekend. Checking in on 10/7/21 at 3:00 pm and check-out at 12:00 on 11/7/21. I was invited to a quinceañero celebrated at the hotel and since I live in SJ I decided to stay there. This is my review: The room was not suitable to host anyone 1-Old and dirty carpets and a strong musty smell 2-it was a room with a full bed and a chest (a rubble) crossed in the entrance hall that almost did not allow the passage to the room. 3- The bathroom was extremely uncomfortable and dirty. The shower had fungus and the shower head clogged !! There was hardly any water coming out of it. I had to complete my bath with damp towels to feel like I bathed… a disaster !!! 4-There was no phone in the room and the curtains were dusty, old and stained. 5-there was no elevator in the hotel 6- for breakfast I had to go outside because I waited 35 minutes for a black coffee; the hotel does not have sufficient staff to operate. 7-Last and not least all the guests to the activity HOSTED AND NOT HOSTED THE HOTEL !! WE HAVE GOT SICK! All with the same symptoms (NONE WITH COVID-19) Fever, severe sore throat and a very strong cough. We have all had to visit a doctor !!
