I was traveling with my younger brother and we started our trip at this hotel. The staff as so friendly and helpful, plus they seemed genuinly intrested in what was bringing us to Costa Rica. We had a crazy early flight the next morning and the staff met us for check out and called us a cab. On our return... More

We stayed at Hotel Catedral for 1 night last month needing a place to sleep near the airport to catch a 7AM flight. It really was just ok and we would try a different place the next time. Cleanliness could have been better and the towels had a musty smell. The rooms have AC, hot water and a tv. The... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here the night before we were due to fly home from San Jose. The hotel is by no means upscale but the service overrides this. The owner was extremely accommodating and friendly and made us feel very welcome after a long day traveling. Recommended to anyone needing a budget hotel in San Jose.

This hotel is remodelled from an old house, and situated on a busy street corner thats insulated by very thin doors, you can hear EVERYTHING happening around you. People talking on the street feel like they are right in your room. Not bad if you have to stop over for a night, but there is very little to do in... More

Stayed one night after a late night arrival. Nice and clean. Manager was great. We actually went a couple blocks down for a couple beers before I went to bed and he was full of great information. Would definitely stay again.

We chose to stay at this hotel due to it's proximity to the airport and its reasonable price. We arrived at SJO in the evening, picked up our rental car and found the hotel with ease. Easy 5 minute drive from the airport and free parking. My fiance's dad flew in with us last minute (we were getting married later... More

So my cancellation wouldn't make them loose costumer. I even propose them to change the date and they refuse. Very bad in term of service, just look at my... More

We stayed at the hotel for 1 night before continuing our journey. Average hotel with basic room. Not the cleanest version, but quite OK for quick stay. However, the service was worth 5 stars. Very friendly and helpful receptionist that helped us in all our questions and worries (airlines lost our luggage and we had to buy many new things... More
