Plaza de Armas, San Juan
(3.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
As one of the main squares in San Juan, Plaza de Armas often serves as a meeting point for both locals and tourists. The square is dominated by an impressive round fountain, surrounded by four statues that personify the four seasons. When you arrive, look for the city hall on the north side; the Department of State building sits to the west. If you have time, get a coffee from one of the stands and sit under the shady trees to watch passersby. A visit to Plaza de Armas represents just the start of the adventure when you use our San Juan vacation route planner to plot your vacation.

  • This park has pigeon all over, many people come to feed the pigeon, there a few benches were you can seat down and people watch walking the street.

  • Room was all right and the balcony was a nice touch. The elevator was a vintage, thus a pain in the butt.
  • Stayed here with my boyfriend for one night in Old San Juan. Our room overlooked the plaza and was very comfortable. Only complaint was that it was very noisy right outside in the early morning (5am) for a good 30min and was difficult to sleep.
  • This hotel is in a great location within walking distance of many attractions in Old San Juan. The room was clean and well cared for.
  • We stay here every year! This year though there isn't a refrigerator in the room, nor are there enough wall outlets. We'll still be back though!
  • Very good hotel to stay while at Old San Juan. Friendly service and great hospitality. Stayed there for seven nights and had a great time. Close to everything you could need while spending your vacation in San Juan. I really recommend this nice hotel.
