Venetian charm in beautiful Costa Rica Although it has been 4 years since I stayed here I still remember with fondness my sojurn. Refreshing pool, spacious room with great ventilation and a spacious bathroom. But the staff were considerate, helpful and knowledgeable. Nice location with a verdant aspect. i

The hotel is very peaceful with large airy rooms and good bathrooms. Very pretty garden and walking area with all sorts of flowers, trees and butterflies. Make sure to walk up the hill by the little stone table...pretty view especially at night with city lights. It is outside of the center of San Jose and cost about 30 - 35... More

Very attractive architecture, great view, and very pleasant walkable garden/orchard with avocados, mangos, star fruit, coffee, birds and butterflies. Great service, simple but comfortable amenities, very good Wi Fi in rooms and common areas.

Very basic rooms, but nice common areas to utilize between the total 8 rooms that make up the hotel. The staff on our visit was very friendly and even brought us welcome drinks by the pool after we checked in. The receptionist also spoke English, but some basic Spanish would help in interacting with other staff (gate guards, night staff,... More

Hotel is not in the centre of San Jose, allowing you to have a peaceful night. Rooms are nice but quite simple for this quality of hotel. A bit dark as well. Hotel decoration is very nice and you can see beautiful flowers everywhere outside and inside the hotel. We had dinner there and it was just great, a little... More

If you are looking for a quiet, simple hotel with beautiful views and a bed and breakfast feel to it in Santa Ana, I would recommend staying here. The staff were very friendly, specifically Elizabeth, whom my roommates and I have fallen in love with. She speaks perfect English, cooks exquisite food and was just a delight to be around.... More

It felt a bit out of the way, but it wasn't really. You definitely need a car. I didn't like the decor at all (but that's a personal thing maybe). It's a simple hotel. Felt cold and damp in the rainy season. Staff were friendly. WiFi was OK but only if I left my room to get a clear signal.... More
