After having been delayed on our bus trip down from Nicaragua, the staff was very accommodating and willing to help us even with a super late check-in. The room was much larger than imagined and that's with even having requests twin beds. The hot water in the shower was a welcome respite from a long day. In the morning, the... More

We loved the atmosphere here. Cool hard wood floors, huge old house, very convenient to museums and the artisan market. Our cab ride to the airport only cost $25. We were upgraded to a room with a private balcony and great view of the city. This is not the Holiday Inn, which was exactly what we were looking for. The... More

We stayed here for two nights. It was our second visit to this hotel and we couldn't be more pleased. The rooms are very basic and clean, and met our needs. The location is perfect for exploring the historic district of San Jose. A short walk to museums, National Theatre, Central Marketplace and parks and monuments. The quaint building has... More

I loved my stay here. The hotel has a very nice feel about it and the staff are all genuinely very friendly and helpful. For the price I paid, this hotel was exceptional value for money. The location is great, and even as a solo traveller I felt very safe walking home in the evening. Due to the location it... More

Our stay at fleur de lys was amazing. I don't know why but they upgrade us to a wonderful suite. We enjoyed every minuet of our stay. Very good location. The people at the front desk were very kind and helpful. Also they give you a free first drink at their bar - was delicious. Very recommend !

Very courteous staff, very attentive, clean, and friendly! Food at the resteraunt is delicious and cheap. The hotel even gives you a free drink. Accessible to white water rafting tours via van. Highly recommend, would stay here again. They even upgraded us to suite for free! Breakfast is included in the rate.

We stayed at the Hotel Fleur de Lys for a total of 6 nights and fell in love with the 120 year old house and the staff. This is a real gem of a place, more like a boutique bed and breakfast than a typical hotel. It has been well maintained over the years, but don't expect a place that... More

Our group of ten stayed here on our first and last nights in Costa Rica. We love the Costa Rican influence in the wood, flower pictures and artifacts. As leaders of the group, we got upgraded to the Daisy suite and loved it! The staff was friendly and helpful, arranging all our transportation to and from the airport. The hotel... More

We arrived at Fleur de Lys after a full day of travelling from Nicaragua and expected very little as we'd paid only $50 (not a lot considering Costa Rica's high prices). Check in was fast and friendly and we were given a welcome drink. Also by some lucky chance, we were upgraded to a large room with a jacuzzi tub... More

A clean, comfortable hotel with a great bar and restaurant. Easy walking distance to shopping, museum, theater and cathedral. Very friendly, and helpful staff. Prices are very reasonable. You won't go wrong booking here.
