July 2019 - This place was very cool to explore. There's always someplace new you haven't looked. From the amazing parrots, the piano bar, sweeping views of Old Town San Juan. Even the pool was like nothing I'd ever seen before. If you like distinctive, unique, even a little quirky - boutique Inns, this place is for you. If you're an awards-points, big-chain hotel, kind of traveler, there are a million other places to stay, where you will get the exact experience you expect...every time. However, for a little adventure, this place is it. The staff at The Gallery Inn was super friendly, helpful, like all those we met in Puerto Rico. Snuggled in between the two Major Forts, the location is an easy walk to any place you want to go in Old Town.
The property was amazing - the most unique hotel/inn that I have ever visited. From the numerous courtyards and sitting areas, to the beautiful pool, and of course the amazing collection of art and sculpture, it was just incredible. The room was so charming, and blended the historical elements of the inn with beautiful artwork and decor. We were also fortunate enough to have a balcony overlooking the sea. Spent every evening relaxing in the Cannon Room listening to music and visiting with other guests. The location is terrific as well - all of the best restaurants, bars and shops are easily within walking distance. I really can't say enough good things about our experience. You do forgo some of the conveniences of newer hotels (for example, no elevators - but this building dates to the 1700s!), but the beauty and character more than make up for this. My wife and I can't wait to return to the inn and Old San Juan.
I feel petty stating that the WiFi coverage in the rooms wasn't very good - my guess is that the construction of the hotel likely makes signal coverage difficult. Other than that, my only other recommendation would be to include some fresh fruit or pastries at the morning breakfast. But beyond these two minor issues no complaints at all!
I’m writing this review with our upgraded room in mind (Hector A) with the ocean view just because we stayed in the room Jan Marie at first and the lighting was really bad! The room itself wasn’t the best and the “garden view” wasn’t really a garden view. What made us upgrade our room was finding a dead cockroach under our table :(. Our friends had the ocean view room and we loved it. It was so different than the downstairs. The toilet paper was even better quality haha. To sum it up, the staff was first class, the hotel itself and the tropical parrots that live in it were stunning, and you can’t go wrong unless you settle for one of the cheaper rooms.
Such a magical inn! Thoroughly enjoyed hearing beautiful piano music floating down to my room one morning. Wonderful place for those adventurous and creative souls who love getting off the beaten path and can appreciate the uniqueness and history of this inn.
Wouldn’t be good for those who have balance issues or difficulty with uneven surfaces, but then, it’s part of the character of this place.
With a stay at The Gallery Inn in San Juan (San Juan Antiguo), you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Convento de Los Dominicos and San Juan Cathedral. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, multilingual staff, and luggage storage. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
