Modern Lodging in San Juan's Hilly Terrain

San Juan—a settlement of rolling hills known as the site where 19th-century revolutionary warriors first fought Spanish colonizers—is famous for mixing historical landmarks with newish establishments, including the first and only hotel in the city—Greenhills Élan Hotel Modern.

The terrain itself does not have much to offer other than commercial goods sold at bargain prices at a mall in Barangay Greenhills.
