Located in the Heart of Old San Juan, El Convento, a member of Historic Hotels of America and Small Luxury Hotels of the World, has set new standards of luxury, comfort, and service while preserving the unique character and mystique of the hotel. A former Carmelite Convent built three and a half centuries ago, El Convento has gone through many incarnations before a complete refurbishment carefully restored this historic hotel with special attention paid to the preservation of the original structure. No expense or imagination has been spared in giving El Convento a fine blend of originality and classic quality. There is something refreshingly different about El Convento, a small boutique-style hotel that celebrates the days of Old World style, creating a welcome atmosphere of sophistication without pretension, providing its guests with style and traditional hospitality. The legacy of El Convento will continue to endure long into the 21st century.
