The staff is fantastic. They make you feel at home and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and easy. On our way back from Vieques, we needed help getting from Isla Grande airport back to the hotel—we couldn’t get a taxi service by ourselves. The concierge called us a taxi that arrived within minutes. If you need a quiet room, this is the place. The bed and bedding were very comfortable, and the air conditioner is powerful (and you can control it). El Colonial covers the basics for the budget traveler, but gives you first class service.

The feel was true to Old San Juan. The balcony was too small to be considered a balcony but it was nice to be able to look out and see the area. I was on the 3rd floor and would have loved an elevator. The staff was the best part of the stay. They were always happy and helpful. They gave great food and attractions suggestions. The 24/7 VIP bar access was perfect. If you wanted coffe, tea, soda, water or something strong they were there to assist. There’s a really cool lounge area on the rooftop. A good choice for adults not looking for a typical beach hotel.
