U.S. News Review

Housed in a 17th-century convent, this opulent Old San Juan property impresses guests with its Old World allures, like its Andalusian tile floors, vintage antiques and mahogany beams. But that's not all El Convento has going for it: Guests also praise the hotel's modern comforts, like the flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and Bose radios found in every room. Apart from its enchanting setting, recent visitors also give this boutique hotel high marks for its outstanding service. Hotel El Convento resides in the middle of Old San Juan, offering easy access to historic attractions like San Cristobal Fortress and El Morro. There's also plenty to do at the hotel: You can dip into a plunge pool and Jacuzzi overlooking San Juan Bay, nosh on Spanish tapas or Puerto Rican fare at three on-site restaurants, or lounge at the hotel reception, where complimentary wines and hors d'oeuvres are provided every afternoon.
