We recently traveled to Old San Juan in Puerto Rico, which for the record is a wonderful town to visit, and stayed at the Gallery Inn, right off Calle Norzagaray. I have mixed feelings about our experience, because the Gallery Inn is just the sort of place we like to stay at because it is totally unique and dare I...

We LOVE to stay here. It is not your typical hotel. There are parrots in the courtyard and art work everywhere. We met the owners and you don't feel like a "number" here. Easy to walk anywhere in Old San Juan from here and we rented a car and drove to the rainforest one day!

First off, I find the standards of a nice accommodation to be low in Puerto Rico, and would generally recommend other Caribbean destinations. The Gallery Inn is truly unique and a photographer's delight. However, the rooms are grungy, unclean, and some are just moldy. After complaining, we were given a suite which was much more spacious and no doubt nicer....

This is place is over the top cool. Staying here is a very, unique experience that highlights the beauty of Old San Juan. The Galeria is in the heart of all the fun stuff, and there's lots of fun stuff, in Old San Juan. We stayed here in February and the weather was brilliant. The owners are the inn keepers...

I LOVED IT. The photos on Yelp or Trip Advisor or anywhere online do not do this place justice. If you are "meh" with big brand name hotels like Sheraton in Old San Juan, you would love this place. To quote my husband, this place has a personality. The Gallery Inn is truly like a gallery - every corner of...

We started our vacation in San Juan at this hotel and continued to tell other traveler's for the next 3 weeks, they must stay there if they ever go to PR and continue to praise it! It is a labyrinth of hallways and stairs where everywhere you turn, you see something new and beautiful. Could be something artistic, a new...

Took the cab for $21 to the hotel. The building is located on the ocean, half way in between from the fort El Moro and the fort San Cristobal. The front of the hotel is so non-descript that I was very relieved when the cab driver pointed us to an iron security gate. If you arrive at night, it is...

A fabulous getaway to a 17th-century Spanish mansion! From the art and sculptures everywhere to the plants and trees, it really felt like we were in Puerto Rico when we stayed at the Gallery Inn- not just another chain hotel that could be anywhere in the world. Good continental breakfast, outstanding roof deck and beach house, great service and in-house...
