Visit The Gallery Inn in Old San Juan
Puerto Rico’s Gallery Inn is located on a lofty perch over the Old City’s North Wall from where guests are able to enjoy a wonderful view of the Atlantic Ocean, the entire San Juan Bay and central mountainous regions of the island. Guests will find its entrance located at 204 Calle Norzagaray in San Juan.
The twenty-two rooms of this stunning boutique hotel have been created inside six interconnecting townhouses – a total floor area of 23 000 square feet. The buildings feature brick patios, ausubo beams, sculptured fountains and antique arches – all of which add to its incredible charm. In addition to the beautifully made-out guest rooms, there are as many as 19 striking gardens and five active art studios that have been tucked away between the buildings. Guests are openly encouraged to explore the grounds to find their own havens of tranquility at The Gallery Inn.
All the rooms at the inn carry a four-star rating and every effort is made to ensure that guests are comfortable and well-catered for. The rooms are furnished with Tempur-Pedic Swedish mattresses and pillows for a good night’s rest and are decorated with silkscreen paintings, watercolors, sculptures and other pieces of art created by hostess and resident artist Jan D’Esopo. Visitors may choose from Artist Rooms which feature one full bed, Colonial Rooms which are larger and feature patios, balconies or terraces, Vista Rooms with a Queen or King-sized bed, a terrace and of course a beautiful view, and the Top Side Suites that feature a romantic garden balcony complete with a Jacuzzi overlooking either the ocean or the city. Guests may also organize honeymoon and family suites with management.
The emphasis here is on art and culture and guests are able to visit active art studios, attend candlelight concerts and finish their days with cheese and wine receptions. You can witness sculptors at work, have your portrait done or adopt a hands-on approach and bring your own art equipment. There are plenty of artistic activities to get involved with and guests are encouraged to make use of this to the full. You may also interact with birds, learn about tree orchids and other plants, view the chefs at work, read a book from the hotel’s collection and start off every day on a sumptuous breakfast enhanced by a plethora of fresh tropical fruit. So make the most of your visit to Puerto Rico and book your stay at The Gallery Inn.
