Don't think twice if you need to stay in San Jose - best bang for the buck. Located in safe affluent suburb that has everything in terms of shopping, dining, etc. Big, clean rooms, great staff, on-site restaurant, free internet, etc. Need GPS to find it. 20 mins from airport.

We spent four nights at Hotel Luisiana in May 2010, at the very beginning of a rainy season in Costa Rica. The room was very spacious, clean nicely decorated, with AC and flat screen TV with Cable. Across hotel you can connect to wifi which was for some reason pretty weak. Most of the time we hardly could open most... More

This is the perfect place to stay when you arrive in San Jose. It is about a 10 min drive from the airport (we recommend using a GPS to find the hotel as there is only few road signs in Costa Rica). The rooms exceeded our expectations (extra clean, modern, quite, spacious, free local and international call, flat panel TV,... More

Our driver, Ulie, was the best part of our stay at this hotel. He was wonderfully gracious and kind. Arturo was curt and to the point. It is a good place to stay for a night when arriving and heading out to other parts of Costa Rica. It is secured with a gate and felt very safe. It did feel... More

My first night in San Jose was a $100 best western that was filthy and had old, outdated rooms. When I booked the Hotel Luisiana, I worried that I was in for another horrid hotel that was overrepresented on web sites. I was delighted to find out how wrong I was, and to see that the pictures in the photos... More

Most amazing hotel and staff. Prompted me to register on this website just to encourage people to go here. Everything that could be done to make our stay the best possible was done from the hotel shuttle pickup when we arrived to our departure when we left. Nice, Impeccable rooms, very comfortable, good food, pleasant staff always and so very... More

we were a party of five (2 adults, 1 senior, 1 student (17) and one child (7). We felt that it was unclear pricing when we contacted the hotel to book our rooms. The check out price was higher then we were led to belive when we booked. Not enough breakfast. Beautiful christmas decorations. lovely beds, fluffy pillows.Felt safe.

This hotel is profiling itself towards high end customers. Their decor is well thought out, Italian inspired. It was clean and well maintained. Large rooms with almost some of the required items for cooking, some vital parts was missing. The beds were really great, as was the bathroom. Free internet with good enough speed for casual surfing and checking mail.... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights.The staff was very nice, however the room was not a three and half star hotel.The air conditioner did not work in my room so they brought in a window unit that required a hose to come out the window and now the window would not shut.

I would recommend staying here if you are interested in a nice and clean hotel that is closer to San Jose airport. It is not located in downtown San Jose and is actually located in a more residential neighborhood in a suburban city called Santa Ana. We stayed one night as we had a very early flight from San Jose... More
