Stayed for one night. Parking lot was on the street to the left of the main entrance. Had to walk up steps to the lobby which might be a problem for those that have mobility issues. Jessica was very nice and checked us in even though we were a few hours early. She even provided us with a map and... More

This is a great hotel, I have stayed here before. There are not many amenities but it is fairly close to museums, bars and Parque Sabana. The reason I rated it so low is because the last time I stayed there I had a change of plans. I had to check out a day earlier and notified the front desk.... More

The hotel is very modern and lies about 1 1/2 km from the centre of San Juan in a sort of suburban setting. Our room, 702, was modern and quite spacious. It had a desk with a large flat screen TV, a chair and 3 storage drawers and a luggage rack. We had twin queen sized beds, that were very... More

We were delayed 1 day because Spirit Airlines cancelled our trip out of San Jose and we found this hotel on hotels.com. For the price it was very average and not nearly as nice as some of the other hotels we stayed at in Costa Rica. The pillows were extremely uncomfortable and the door kept getting stuck. Also they advertised... More

We stayed here 3 nights at the end of our trip. The room was very beautiful and comfortable. The bed and pillows were plush and lovely. We had agreat view, but our windows were a bit dirty which made the view a little hazy. We couldn't quite master the air conditioner though. No matter what we did it was FREEZING... More

Dear guest, I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, the quality of our beds and pillows and the restaurant. We certainly have a few rooms that may be more noisy than other however those are the ones with better views of the Central Valley. More

We had a very pleasant stay and were thrilled with the upgrade to premium plus room with a magnificent view. The shower (no tub) was old school not what you usually find in a premium room. But it was nice and clean. We had to ask for wash cloths but there were two bath towels. The bed/pillows were comfy, the... More

Dear guest, thank you very much for taking the time to write a comment.

We stayed here two nights, one at the start of our trip to Costa Rica and one at the end. I doubt if anyone visits Costa Rica on holiday to see San Jose. It's OK and the people are very friendly but most Spanish cities or even towns have more charm. You need to start and end here though for... More

Dear Mike, thank you for taking the time to write a review in Trip Advisor we are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your trip.

A nice hotel with a very good breakfast. Room was large but with very poor lighting. It had a big sofa but no light nearby. Safe and coffee but no fridge. A bit out of town and not a particularly nice area around. But there were plenty of eating places nearby and it felt safe enough to walk around.

Dear guest, we are very glad to hear from you and your experience in our property, we are working in the lighting because apparently many people feel the same way. Many people who want to see down town take a bus ride right in front of the hotel which takes about 5 minutes other prefer to walk which is about... More
