Chateau Cervantes

329 Calle Recinto Sur
San Juan , Puerto Rico
(787) 724-7722

The quietly sophisticated, modern interiors in this tiny gem of a hotel (there are just 18 rooms and suites) are the work of famed native designer Nono Maldonado. Maldonado has preserved the airy feel of the 16th-century building, set on Old San Juan's southern fringes: all suites have high ceilings, large windows, and balconies that overlook the busy street below. But sleek earth-toned furnishings, contemporary artwork, flat-screen televisions, and beds with sumptuous linens and padded headboards bring the décor luxuriously up to date. The accommodating staff will help you arrange everything from limo transfers to in-room massages.

Tip: Order room service from the excellent in-house restaurant, Panza, available into the wee hours of the morning.

Room to Book: The split-level Penthouse Suite with its oversize private terrace and private elevator.
