We stayed in the garden apartment. The location was excellent! It was a big apartment with a kitchen, bar/livimg room, shower rrom, toilet room and the bedroom with an ac unit. The fold out futon was in the hallway. We paid on average $25/day to park in a parking garage. We were close enough to pull our luggage back and forth. You will get 3 different codes for the doors after 4:00, no earlier.

The Vintage apartment was just perfect for our family of 4 - location of the property is the most central in Old San Juan and the owner was super responsive to all our queries throughout our stay - highly recommend this place to anybody looking to stay within walking distance of the fort and other sites in the area.
