The Hotel is very nice and has a very good location. It is an "apart" type hotel: in the room you'll find amenities needed to cook and serve a meal (full kitchen with dishes, microwave, etc.). The hotel has a type of "room service" provided by the variety of restaurants close by (it's more a delivery service rather than a... More

Quick summary: I had a one-bedroom suite on the second floor, which provided a quiet, comfortable stay for 3 nights. This is an extended stay hotel with many rooms with living areas and sofa beds, so I recommend it for families as well as extended stay needs. Complimentary breakfast and evening social snacks and drinks make his a very good... More

Great hotel and location. Very nice restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Very safe & enjoyable area. Nice continental breakfast included with made to order omelet station. Wide variety of television channels. Checkout process was a bit slow due to a line of people and limited staff working the front desk. Staff was welcoming and friendly. I will definitely stay...

Comfortable , spacious, and relatively quiet hotel in upscale area. Within walking distance of several good but not inexpensive restaurants. Front desk staff very helpful and friendly. Complimentary breakfast very good and slightly varied from day to day. Exercise room equipment operational and seldom busy. Great stay..

Stayed here for a night before heading to La Fortuna in the morning. Checked in late without issue. Very well located and close to shops and cafes. Room and bathroom all very clean and comfy. About 20 mins from SJO airport, expect to pay about USD$30 (15,000 CR).

Not impressed. Really lacking in the details and cohesion for such a large brand hotel at such an exclusive San José valley address as Avenida Escazú. Such a shame. It really had potential. We stayed for 2 nights over Valentine's Day weekend for a work event being held in Avenida Escazú. More parking spaces needed: There was no parking available... More
