This place is near the USA embassy, but other than that, it's miles from anywhere else. You will have to get a taxi/bus to all other place. The hotel is of a high standard with a Chinese restaurant within and good and helpful staff. However, be warned, the rooms at the front of the building are so noisy, you cannot... More

Hotel is very clean with an excellent staff. The atrium is a great place to meet and lit up at night is enchanting. Breakfast is plenty with eggs, rice and beans, fruit, muffins, etc. I would go for the deluxe room over the standard due to traffic noise. Not much in the area to see, restaurants are over 200 meters... More

I hated Costa Rica but this hotel helped me get through until I could get h@ll out of there. The rooms were very small but nicely renovated. I was on the busy street side but that didn't bother me because for a city street it was relatively quiet. Nice tv and strong wifi. The breakfast was not too early and... More

We arrived late from the airport and Natalia at the front desk was very helpful and friendly with our check in and any extras that we needed. The hotel is in the process of renovating. For $10 more we were upgraded to the back of the hotel, very quiet there and away from the street traffic. The room was basic... More

This hotel was definitely a pleasant surprise. The front desk staff was super helpful and friendly from start to finish. If you don't already have a planned itinerary, no idea what to do and/or how to get there they will help you out with anything you want to do. The rooms are on the small side, but the ones we...
