We stayed here twice in two weeks. On the first occasion there was expansion building work going on; and the second it was completed and operational. The Suites are situated on the main airport road to San Jose and with it came noise. It is rather a sprawling complex which was difficult to navigate especially without lifts (also absent in...

They finally did it. I used to boast the CIAS was the only hotel to never irritate me. This time they got me. It wasn't nothing terrible. I stayed here before and it was ok. I needed a Radisson property in San Jose for 3 days and choose this over the Park Inn and Radisson (both which I stayed at... More

We stayed there for just one night, because it's near to the airport. The hotel is also near to the highway but we didn't hear traffic. The breakfast is good, the staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and not too small. The Gym is a little bit small, but hey, they have one and it's free :-)

OMG! We arrived at this hotel around 530 in the evening after exploring the city for hours. Our cab pulled up and we were greeted warmly by the bell boy and warmly welcomed by the reception staff. I presented my passport to check-in and they genuinely were appreciative of my business. "We've been expecting you, we have a nice room... More

We only stayed one night before heading out on our Costa Rican adventure. Staff extremely friendly. Room clean, quiet, microwave, safe and ironing board in rooms. There is a restaurant that over looks the pool area. Pool looks very clean which we did not use. Hotel is upgraded. We wished there were machines to buy bottled water or soda. We... More

This is a Private, secure setting, with blocks of rooms around large pool. The breakfast buffet has lots of fresh fruit and hot food including fried plantain. wifi worked well. The room was large, clean and comfortable. It's close to a mall (walk towards the airport and cross pedestrian bridge over highway) and local shops; look at the garden at... More

We arrived a couple of days early before a tour, to get over jet lag and to see more of San Jose than the tour allowed. Nice clean hotel with decent restaurant, although there are others within walking distance at the back of the "Fresh Market". Room was split level with king size plus bed and TV up a narrow... More
