The Decanter exceeded our expectations. Beautiful hotel in the heart of Old San Juan. Walking distance and easy access to sights. Quick cab ride to Condado beach as well. The Decanter has a beautiful rooftop bar terrace, the staff was friendly and amazing. A boutique quaint hotel. We stayed in a terrace suite and it felt like home. I will definitely be visiting again and highly recommend. Also it’s a little breakfast kiosk in the square, try the empanadas and Fresas Rosas (drink) it was our rising essentials. Enjoy your stay at the Decanter while in San Juan.

Good location, nice room, close to everything in Old San Juan. Unfortunately restaurant was closed.

Lovely little hotel, very clean.. sheets are very nice which is key in my book!

Perfect location in Old San Juan. Room was very clean. Ac worked exceptionally, it was very nice after a hot afternoon walking the streets and shops to know you had a nice cool place to freshen up before heading out for the evening. The staff was beyond amazing, so friendly and helpful. We will be back in Puerto Rico and if staying in Old San Juan will definitely stay at the Decanter again.

loved my room and balcony. location is right in the middle of old san juan. my two complaints: walls are paper thin and could hear my neighbor and also the dog barking next door in the middle of the night, all night. no parking. when i called to ask about this, i was told there would be parking across the street at the church that the convento hotel would let me use. this lot was tiny and full and there was no parking to be found anywhere. the hotel should provide a valet service to one of the parking garages at the edge of town (i would have paid for this) OR be very clear with people that they shouldn’t bring a car here and don’t tell people they can park in that lot across the street. it’s very misleading. yes

Staff was great and the hotel was very nice. The room was spacious and it was just perfect.

Comfortable hotel in a great location! We loved being able to walk to the historic sites and many great restaurants.

Nioe experience, the only point is our room was a bit too dark, but we would go again in this hotel with pleasure.

Hotel is clean, friendly staff and very convenient location. I stayed for 2 night with my husband and 2 babies in a kind size bed, they offer a crib but for $25.

We loved this hotel. Beautifully decorated and so clean. The bath rooms were newly redone and were luxurious. The staff went overboard to help. They helped us get around Old San Juan and gave us recommendations for food and sightseeing. They are centrally located and easy to walk to many places. We will stay here again. Also, they upgraded us to a terrace room and the terrace went 1/2 around the building. Very romantic place to stay for our honeymoon.

We stayed here prior to taking a cruise. It is a very nice botique hotel in walking distance to the San Juan sites. Would stay there again.

Great location and friendly staff. Room was spacious and well maintained.

We didn't sleep all night because of loud music and drunks made so much noise outside until 6:00 am. Our second night, we slept OK, but the construction in front of the entrance woke us up at 7:00 am with nonstop jack hammers. They don't have much to eat and their Wifi is very bad. It disconnected us every few minutes.

We checked into the hotel and it seemed lovely, at first... The bar and bartender made us feel welcome and we were excited to explore Old San Juan. The room was pretty standard ( for $380). This hotel is called The Decanter, yet there was no corkscrew in the room! Poor lighting, no full length mirror, few staff, no facecloths, no change at the front desk and and no business center. We made the best of it and the location was great!
