San Juan, San Juan, PR









Alegría Studio is a colorful and charming studio apartment on Calle San Jose in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Old San Juan, settled in 1521, is the oldest Spanish city in all of America and is famous for its history, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. From Alegría Studio you will be able to comfortably explore everything the iconic Old San Juan has to offer. Location and price is what makes this apartment stand apart from the rest. 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 two adults, has one queen bed, an updated and fully stocked kitchen with a 2-person counter space, a cozy living area with flat-screen TV and WIFI. 

NOTE: The building is currently undergoing maintenance work in the common areas such as painting and power washing. There may be some noise related to this work between 8:00am and 5:00pm during these dates.

Enter Alegría Studio apartment and you are greeted with an open layout, high 12-foot ceilings with original wood beams and with a beautiful traditional Old San Juan Spanish door to enjoy the ample sunlight and breeze. The kitchen counter comfortably sits two adults. The studio has air conditioning, flat-screen tv, and WIFI. The layout makes very efficient use of space and although it is a small and cozy apartment the cathedral ceilings make the area feel much larger. There is a full modern bathroom with a standing shower; bath and beach towels are included.



Alegría Studio has 1 queen-size bed, a bench that serves as an additional sitting area or to accommodate your belongings, closet, flat-screen tv, ceiling fan, and AC. You will love the modern commodities of this apartment nestled in a historic and beautiful building.



Alegría Studio has a recently renovated kitchen with a fridge, microwave, sink, and a stove. It is fully stocked with everything you might need for an extended stay. Dinnerware, coffee maker, blender and cooking pot set are included.  



Location. Location. Location. Alegría Studio has one of the best locations in Old San Juan. You will be staying in the middle of the old city which means you can comfortably walk to anywhere within Old San Juan from the apartment.  The charm and character you will experience in the 500-year-old is one of a kind. The apartment is located on a more quiet and residential street but is steps away from all the action. We recommend taking a cab from the airport and using Uber or taxi while you stay at Old San Juan. This is a truly walkable location with everything you need a short walk away. Renting a car is not necessary unless you are planning on road tripping. Villa Mosaico does not include parking. 

There are many things to do in the surrounding areas, here are some of our favorites, all within walking distance:

  • Explore the El Morro Fort. There are daily tours of the fort and the large green areas have spectacular ocean views. Take a tour, have a picnic, and fly a kite. This is a must-do.
  • Explore the iconic Calle San Sebastian nightlife. There is a large assortment of bars on this strip which is a favorite among locals on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
  • Breakfast at “La Bombonera”. This is a Puerto Rican landmark well known for its locally inspired breakfast and pastries.
  • Savor Stuffed Avocado. Healthy and “trendy” spot where you can create your own avocado bowl.
  • Take a stroll around “Paseo La Princesa”, a waterfront walkway which you can start off at El Morro and finish of the walk with a rum tasting at Princesa Gastrobar at the end of the trail.



This property does not include parking. If staying within the general San Juan/Metro area, we recommend moving around via Uber. If you decide to rent a car, there are various paid parking garages around Old San Juan – pricing varies as some charge by the hour and others have a flat rate.
