Our stay in Royal Chateau couldn't have been better. We had a quiet and large room with a/c and TV. The breakfast was great. It's only 3 blocks away from the bay and the malecon where a lot of bars and restaurants are located. Perfect!
This place is pretty cute and even has gated parking, which added to a secure feeling. From the street, it reminds me of something one would see in New Orleans with its shuttered windows. They made us breakfast each day, and it was good. The rooms were clean and the shower had plenty of hot water. The air conditioning was so good, I had to request a blanket; they brought me a lovely quilt to use. I don't understand their not providing beach towels, but this was certainly not a deal-breaker. It's in a good location three or four blocks from the beach, just to the left side of the church.
stayed here only one night while visiting san juan to see the beach and the surfing, i would say its the best value in town. Not the fanciest, not the cheapest, but the overall best value. It was nice and clean and really a good experience.
The hotel is in a great location, easy access to restaurants. Good price, however there was hair on the floor from the previous guest. Could do with a little better cleaning. Air conditioning worked well and was quiet. Nice hot and cold water. Breakfast is included and was good, people were friendly. Secure hotel.
For some reason, this hotel has an observation tower. This is probably the second best view point of the streets of SJS, after Mirador del Cristo de la Misericordia. We were there for New Year's, and coming from Canada, I had never seen so many fireworks all around me. The location made it perfect to spend that night, for two loners, as no one else seemed to want to watch the wonderful show. We spent three nights, mostly quiet, with A/C and a comfortable room. The price was higher than most other places around it, but it benefited from 24/7 security, a free and secure parking, and a great breakfast/coffee. It's also steps away from Calle Mercado, the most lively place in town after the beach. The town being roughly square and small, it was nice to be just outside of the bar area without being too far from the beach.…
