Right in the Historic Center of San Juan

The Hotel El Convento is in the center of old San Juan. It is only six kilometers from the airport and has great bus transport links to all nearby locations. The docks are only a few minutes away by foot, where visitors can book their cruise ship tickets at the pier to see more of the wonderful bay of San Juan. Visitors who would like to explore more of Puerto Rico can also book a day trip or get to the  El Yunque Rain Forest by car in only 25 minutes.

Close to All Attractions

The Hotel El Convento is away from the crowded docks but only a few minutes' walk from the pier. Most local attractions can be reached by foot, such as the Puerto Rico Cathedral, several fortresses, and the National Museum. Tourists can start the day by visiting the seafront attractions or stopping by the Casa Blanca Museum, a castle built for the governor in 1521 displaying both colonial and Indian artifacts. Walking down the pier, visitors can see the famous El Morro and Castillo San Cristoban forts and spectacular views over the San Juan Bay. There are plenty of quality restaurants at the seafront or in the back streets of the old city, such as the El Jibarito, which offers great Puerto Rican cuisine.

Excellent Facilities and Luxury Accommodation

The hotel building was originally erected in 1651 and served as a convent for many years. Its character is preserved. Today, it offers luxury accommodation for tourists all over the world. Its unique atmosphere, highly rated SPA, and quality restaurants makes it the perfect venue for honeymoons and romantic holidays. The Hotel El Convento has a roof terrace pool and sundeck and three restaurants. Professional travelers can take advantage of the free WiFi and the use of the modern business center. All spacious rooms have a 32'' flat screen TV, Bose stereo systems, a work desk, and a coffee maker. The goose down pillows and comfortable beds provide all guests with a good night sleep after a busy day of sightseeing.

Hipmunk Staff Review

The Hotel El Convento is a great boutique hotel in the heart of San Juan, surrounded by historical buildings. The quality SPA services, great restaurants, and the AAA four diamond rating make this accommodation stand out from the rest of the hotels in Puerto Rico.

Expert Reviews
Lonely Planet
Sandwiched into the happening hub of Fortaleza St, the Milano is a safe, reliable, if slightly austere option.
Frommer's
There's not much remarkable about this hotel built from a 1920s warehouse, except clean, modern facilities at a good price in a great location.
Fodor's
This affordable and conservative hotel is near the best and worst of Old San Juan. On the plus side, it's on a lively street lined with interesting shops.
