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.

Room was very nice, even using US standards. Breakfast was not included and was very expensive, but the hotel is located just outside of a little shopping district, plenty of restaurants, boutiques, live music, etc., so we just walked over to Starbucks which had a nice breakfast menu (sandwiches, etc.) Not really in San Jose but in Escazu, the taxi...

This is a good location for a business trip in Costa Rica, the property is a new and modern building, it's located to a walking distance to Avenida Escazu, an area full of very good restaurants, staff is very helpful, they have a wonderful service! This is the place to stay close to San Jose.

I went there since it was really close to the office. I was positively surprised by the hotel but mostly because of all the personnel. They were kind and really helpful at all times. I will definitely go back to the hotel.
