After calling all of Ponce’s “traditional” hotel chains a friend recommended the Hotel Belgica. I checked Trip Advisor and was turned off by a negative review for the hotel. I’m not usually so persuaded by a single bad review but I was tired and worried it would be old and run-down.  The price was right but we were traveling with two other families and I didn’t want to make a bad decision.  Finally, my friend convinced me it was the best decision. I can’t tell you how happy we were with this hotel! If you’re in Ponce overnight and you love comfort and history, THIS is the hotel for you.
