I spent 17 days in San Jose having dental work done. Reserved my first night at Tiquicia so I would have a place to stay and could look at other alternatives.

Hotel Tiquicia is an older hotel that gives you a feeling of a home. Bars resturantes are close. The breakfast was eggs, pancakes, and fruit was very good! The use of the kitchen makes a friendly area for conversations as well as cooking. It is a great value.
