Popular among business travelers and families. There are several shops and restaurants within walking distance but to get anywhere else you'll need a car. There's a a nice shopping center across from the hotel, Plaza Itzcazú, with plenty of dining options. Technically, one can walk to it but since it is across a highway, the walk across the crossing bridge... More

Nice modern hotel; nice room; very comfortable bed; very good breakfast; very friendly staff; well situated half way between San Jose and the airport; easy public bus to downtown San Jose for 75 cents; the bus drops you at the beginning of the pedestrian part of Avenida Central; from there, along 15 blocks or so you have all the key...

I love staying here not only because of the good service, food and clean place to stay, but because the staff is very friendly and they always remember who I am. They know what I like, where I need to go, and my preferences. Great place and great staff. I always recommend to coworkers, friends and family.

Ive been travelling to San Jose for almost 15 years. Nothing much has changed downtown. Just a short 10 minute taxi ride from downtown (avoid rush hours) Escazu is an emerging area with lots of options for casual or fine dining. The Hotel is annexed to an elegant mall with great restaurants, fruit juice bar, convenience store, pharmacy and even... More

Really nice hotel outside of San José. We wanted to be on this end of town as we were headed to the beach the next day. We stayed on points which was a good value. We were placed on a high floor with a view. The elite benefits stopped there. Not having breakfast was rather annoying. Even on a points... More

Nice hotel to stay if you ever go to San Jose. Withing walking distance to a huge shopping center. Free parking when you validate your ticket. Nice and friendly staff. They do speak English really good. The breakfast, if not included in your rate, costs 20USD and it's the average hotel breakfast. Walk 7 minutes and you have a Starbucks.... More

This is a very nice and comfortable hotel. Bed are good, the room is clean and the bathroom is convenient with hot water. It was a bit difficult to get to even though I could see the building. Parking is free and we opted for the breakfast to be included. The wifi was stable and the speed was pretty good... More

This is really a great hotel, with (in my opinion) some of the best service and staff of any hotel in Costa Rica. All of the perks of a chain hotel, with a relaxed vibe and great location. The restaurant/bar is very good too, and usually lively as well. If you have appointments at CIMA or need to be in... More

This is a great option for business or pleasure! Amazing customer service, the food (room service) and the breakfast (buffet) were great and not so expensive. The room was amazing (the suite) fully recommended. Everything in the room was clean.
