It was the end of our tour in Costa Rica and we needed a place to stay near our rental car office in downtown San Jose (the drop-off was 9 o'clock the next day). Using our tripadvisor app we came across the KC Hotel - the location was perfect and the offered price even more so. When we arrived, we... More

This hotel wasn't within walking distance of the city centre. We were not in San Jose for long so it didn't matter but the location doesn't have much for tourists in the immediate vicinity. But it was a nice place to stay with very nice staff.

This place has something of an old world charm with gardens and vegetation scattered throughout, and the rooms are super large and as clean as a whistle. I found the entire facility to be as clean and very quiet, though there were only a few guests staying when I was there. It took about 20 min in taxi to get... More

This is not a luxury hotel or a hotel located near exciting attractions, but it was clean and comfortable with friendly bilingual staff. I stayed hear while getting dental work done by Dr. Anglada. It was a quick walk to his office. The neighborhood seems safe and there are little shops and food nearby.

I stayed at the KC in Sabana. The location is pretty good. Close to central downtown but there are some good restaurants close so it's an easy and relatively safe walk. The grounds of the hotel are very nice and the pool area is immaculate. My room however wasn't bad but also wasn't good. I'd equate the room quality to... More

Rooms are comfortable, and food is very good, I liked the decoration details in every area of this hotel. You can take the sun at the pool area, close to the restaurant and then go for a walk to La Sabana park or San Jose downtown.

Great chain! I always enjoy Aloft properties. This one was lacking in prompt service at the lounge bar and restaurant. Not at all personable most of the time. It appears they are struggling with the POP system. They need some training in my opinion.

I called to send a bottle of wine to a room for a friend of mine travelling to Costa Rica on her honeymoon. The extremely helpful and friendly female concierge quickly assisted me. Within a few hours, my friend had texted me they had received it! The concierge was professional and courteous! I highly recommend this hotel!
