2 issues: no tv channel guide and no comforter

4/10 Fair

The Hotel is in bad shape... The elevator didn't work, so we had to go up to the third floor with our light... Thankfully it was only two carry-ons, still, unacceptable that they didn't have a Bell Boy or Valet to help out. When we got to the room, the sheets in the bed were stained and there was a dead roach in the bathroom.. Also, the internet didn't reach the room... I do have to say the staff was very courteous and tri d to help out as much as they could, but the overall experience was very disappointing...

This place was amazing. Not only was the hotel beautiful but the room was very pleasing. The staff went above and beyond for us and we were always treated kind, respectful, and very welcomed. We will be staying here again.

8/10 Very good

Hotel El Convento is a historic property with beautiful details. Our room had a private balcony, which was perfect for coffee in the morning. The room was clean but an old building always has little quirks. Our only complaint was that the room was cold and we were unable to adjust the temperature. We enjoyed our stay and would visit again if we are in Old San Juan.

Great stay in San Juan
Great hotel in the heart of San Juan. Would definitely stay here again. If you’re renting a car, parking can be a bit complicated, so would suggest not renting a car if staying here.

This hotel was so beautiful & there were so many stores/restaurants nearby! I enjoyed staying here, it was very relaxing and private. I would definitely come back, now I see why they are always booked! The only downside on my trip was it is not all inclusive and I did not receive my free bottle of wine as I was told when I talked to the hotel employee.
