This is a good place to stay for visiting central San Jose. The staff is very helpful and attentive, the coffee in the lobby is always hot. Overall, this is nothing fancy (no TV in room, but with a shower en suite, plus refrigerator and cooking facilities), providing very good value for money, though probably best suited for the high...

We were less than impressed with this establishment. We found the male night desk attendant indifferent and generally unhelpful. They still allow smoking in the dining area which is open to the lobby. Removing ashtrays of butts in order to sit for breakfast is a turn-off. Also be warned: there is a train track very nearby and that is one... More

Stayed here just for one night. I had a room with a double bed. Very nice clean room. Huge bathroom!! Traffic was noisy at night on the street side. I did not have safe in the room. I believe that there are only stairs if that is a problem for you.

Relation between the coasts and the services is perfect. It's very clean and beautiful. The staff is very friendly and helpfully. And the position is very central and near the bus station TRACOPA. Reccomended. Enjoy your self!

We stayed 2 nights, once in a small room with shared bathroom and another night in a large room with private bathroom. The room was huge, nicely appointed, with lots of natural light and the bed was huge and comfortable. The french owner was very nice to us and we felt it was competitively priced. Our large room however was... More

Me and my friend spent the nights there on two occasions during our stay in Costa Rica when we traveled from coast to coast. We arrived at "inconvenient" times and everything worked perfectly. Friendly staff. I can well imagine staying longer on another occasion, however, is the walk down to the city center in the longest team.

Keep in mind that the lower priced rooms at this place are in the old wing which needs to be refurbished bad. It looked like a 1970's room with a shared bathroom that was not very nice. On the plus side the room was huge with a large balcony but again it had old furniture and stuff. If they re-did... More
