Nicely decorated with attention to details. Clean and well maintained. Good location close to bus station and walking distance to great sights in central San Jose. Breakfast included in rate and friendly staff.

The hotel was clean and safe for being near the Coca Cola Terminal (unsafe area). We chose to stay here to be close to the Coca Cola terminal for a bus in the morning. Wished the restaurant was open later (was closed by 8 we when go there) so we wouldn't have had to walk around. We found an ok... More

Very pleasant and clean hotel, close to the various long-distance bus terminals like Ticabus and Transnica. It's a good place to stay for one night if you're just passing through San José. For a longer stay, go to a better neighborhood. The rate for two people in February 2012 was $59. It included breakfast. There's free wi-fi.

I chose to stay at the Mesón del Ángel Hotel because it had an excellent and safe reputation. I was very happy with my stay. The bathroom had hot water, there was internet access, phone, cable, and a delicious breakfast. The staff was very nice and the hotel is in a great location! Two thumbs up! :) * Decedí quedarme...

We stayed at Meson del Angel when we first arrived in Costa Rica before heading out to explore the rest of the country. First we were ripped off by the taxi driver who took us here when we specifically requested he take us somewhere else. (PLEASE remember that almost all of the taxis have special arrangements with hotels to take... More

This hotel is very reasonable, around $65 for a room with 2 beds. There was a lock box for valuables, tv, wi-fi, had it's own bathroom. There was no A/C but that is pretty typical of many hotels in Costa Rica. We felt like we were in a safe location and walking distance from a large selection of restaurants. We... More

They were not service-minded at all and the whole hotel is worn down. We did not get the 10% discount they claim to give to people traveling with Transnica, the wireless does not work in the room so instead they charge you for using their computers downstairs, the room was shabby and smelled like smoke, the breakfast was mediocre, the...

Cost us $55 to stay at a hostel! Dirty bed sheets, no fan, dirty bathrooms. Overall I feel like they over charged us like crazy!
