Amazing personnel. Room is really clean and modern. WiFi was lacking bandwidth but basic. Breakfast was very nice. Decor is uniquely simple. But it's Mexican owned and business focused. For a few nights, it's a great option. And it's close to Parklands vacation properties in Real Cariari where the rest of the group stayed. I love it because you are... More

The staff was courteous. Room was clean. Shuttle service pickup from airport was unreliable. Breakfast was basic Located far away from downtown San Jose and I was quoted taxi fare about $25-30+. There is a small shopping mall and a few restaurants in walking distance including a McDonalds.

The hotel is ok if you go there for one night live we did (bring back to car - sleep - flight the next morning).

Stayed at the CityExpress hotel for one night before heading to Manuel Antonio for vacation. The hotel is very clean and modern. The rooms are basic but exactly what you would expect for this kind of venue. Wifi worked wonderful and it's near a mcdonalds and other food. Shuttle took a bit to pick me up and I had to... More

Clean. Modern, sleek, minimalist style. Adequate but very compact room. When our group had to stay extra days because of airport closure due to volcano eruption, charged the same price as we had been paying at the much fancier Wyndham Herradura on the other side of the highway even though their normally advertised price is much lower. Were unpleasant when... More

Not as close to the airport as expected but good starting point for our Alamo car rental a few Kilometers away. The breakfast was just ok and staff spoke some English. The shuttle was a little hard to get as there was no easy way to contact the hotel on arrival. We had to get a police officer to help... More

Basic hotel, free breakfast although very basic. Location is good, 10 minutes from the airport, and across the street from a shopping mall with restaurants, shops, and everything you need. Cons: Water pressure is weak, and fluctuating temperature. Airport shuttle only operates from 4 AM to noon. Breakfast is very basic and doesn't feel very fresh. Pros: Location across the... More
