This is a nice hotel overlooking San Jose, located in the mountains of Escazu. The price was good, the bed was comfortable, and breakfast was good. The hotel has a TV with cable. It was very good value, and not very far from the airport. It is a very difficult drive to the hotel, and there is no address. It... More

the Staff (Gisele specially ) was the nicest most informative employees ever. the view will take your breath away and is worth the stay for that alone. the room we were in was very small and needed some updating, but we did only pay $30 /night internet connection was great and the place was very clean.

This is the BEST most enjoyable hotel Inn in all of Central America! Nothing comes close to this hotel Inn in all of Costa Rica. This is the very Best for your money. The location is the BEST most scenic location in all of Costa Rica. Nothing compares. This Inn is only a 40 cent bus ride into San Jose... More

For the cost of $50.00 a night it was more than worth it!! The view overlooking the city of San Jose from this hotel is absolutely amazing! The staff was very friendly and very attentive to whatever we needed. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. We even told our friends that live in Cartago and they will most... More

They asked if I had any special needs I had a couple and they tended to them cheerfully and at no additional charge. Julia (whom I would Nominate... More
