Nestled in the 500-year-old historic Spanish colonial city of Old San Juan, Villa Azulejo is the ideal basecamp to explore Old San Juan history, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. You will love people watching from the comfort of this 2 bedroom apartment that has spectacular double doors that open to the sidewalk of San Jose Street. The location is ideal for those looking to be close to the action in Old San Juan, located less than a block from the busy nightlife and restaurants of Calle San Sebastian and a short walk from El Morro Spanish fort. It is also just a few steps from the Old San Juan Cathedral. The apartment sleeps six adults, has one queen bed, two full beds, a four-person dining table, an updated and fully stocked kitchen, and a living room with flat-screen TV and WIFI.

It is important to mention that this is a ground-level unit with wooden windows and doors overlooking the street - guests will hear street noise at night and that is part of the charm!
