Rooms extra large and comfortable. The front desk staff very friendly and helpfull. The restaurant waiters excellent. Stay at the Alta hotel if you want a different feeling from your regular known franchise chain. I usually do not stay at an unkown hotels because the service level is usually a gamble. The Alta is better than the other hotels at... More

We stayed at the Alta Hotel for one night after arriving in San Jose late in the afternoon. It was a great boutique hotel. The staff was friendly and very professional especially at front desk and in the hotel restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable.

Our room was spacious, well equiped and clean. The hotel is conveniently close to the international airport (20 minutes). However, in the vicinity of the hotel is very... More

The Alta Hotel is the most beautiful and romantic place I have stayed in Costa Rica. The architecture and the views are spectacular. The service is simply superb. The La Luz Restaurant served fabulous food and with the entertainment made our evening very, very special. A truly memorable experience. I highly recommend it as the perfect hotel!

Stayed here in mid-May and found it by chance on the internet. What a find! We've had the opportunity to stay in 4 and 5 star hotels around the world, as well as unusual boutique hotels. This boutique hotel has excellent staff and and a "calm" decor. Although there are a variety of descriptions, to us it felt like an... More

This hotel was pretty empty during our stay, which was surprising considering how nice it was. The room and balcony were awesome. We had a great view from the 2nd floor. Only downside- the continental breakfast does not have much variety.

We were met at the front desk by friendly attentive hosts with glasses of pineapple juice while we registered. Our room had indescribably beautiful panoramic views regardless of which way you looked and a huge king size plus bed. The courtyyard, pool, and garden were tipico Costa Rica - heliconias, orchids, ginger and other beautiful flowers which we could not... More

Highly recommend. Truly incredible views from virtually every window. Excellent service. We had great meals at the restaurant. Recommend the Sesame salmon. Went shopping for beautiful ceramics in nearby Salitral. Ask someone how to get to the artesanias district.

This hotel is very classy. It could just as well be in Spain, Argentina, Italy ect ect. It is in the nicest part of San Jose perched on a hillside with every room having a balcony offering "champagne and ksses" views : ) The building is tall and white and while looking nice does not match the interior which is...

The hotel was clean, quiet, impeccable, and quite lovely with stunning views of San Jose, excellent cuisine, and even flamenco dancing on Saturday evening! Very professional and friendly staff. I will stay again at Hotel Alta when I travel to Costa Rica next summer!
