Most of the hotels in Old San Juan were built before elevators. Please expect that one of our staff will assist you in taking your bagage upstairs to your room.
You may hear the sounds of the city from some of our hotel rooms. If you prefer quiet please make note when booking.
Some of the surrounding area attractions require a reservation. Please let us know if you need help making one.
Because Puerto Rico is closer to the Equator, our Puerto Rican sun can be strong. Please make sure you wear plenty of protection in the sun.

Welcome To Villa Herencia
Quietly nestled in the cool shadowed streets of the oldest part of Old San Juan, between the famous San Juan Gate (Puerta de San Juan) and the Cathedral of San Juan Citadel is this quaint and unique gem. Casa Villa Herencia offers easy access to countless shops, galleries, restaurants, and nightlife without being too close to sleep soundly. Old cobblestone streets lead travelers to this colorful hotel deep in the heart of Old San Juan.
Casa Villa Herencia was built in 1885 and was originally a home to early nuns of our beloved city as they arrived at the famous San Juan Gate. Villa Herencia is located steps away from this historic monument. The inscription above the gate states: BENEDICTUS QUI VENIT IN NOMINIE DOMINI (Latin for: Blessed are those who come in the name of the Lord) .
Old San Juan
Old San Juan is located on a small and narrow island which lies in the north coast, about 35 miles (56 km) from the east end of Puerto Rico, and is united to the mainland of Puerto Rico by the three bridges. It is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the north and to the south by San Juan Bay or "Bahia de San Juan" which lies between the city and the mainland.
