3.8/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • Wander the streets of old San Juan you will find the main square. Between is located Fortaleza and San Francisco streets. It was the ancient plaza Mayor because there the Spanish troops practiced military exercises.

  • The impression we had of the place is that it's not as well cared for as the rest of Old San Juan, but worth visiting to take pictures mostly of local architecture.

  • Nice area to sit after tours, lots of birds in the area close to souvenir and conevient stores and souvenir shops. 
  • 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!
  • Spent 5 nights here, never had a problem. Clean friendly staff. Simple establishment. Id stay here again.
