Well kept little hotel except the rooms were old fashionend and nothing special but it has everything what is needed. Our room did not have any windows, that was negative but it is a place where we felt safe. They have a nice little outside bar for a nightcap, breakfast was ok and staff was very friendly. For a short... More

Dear Guest: We are very pleased to see that you liked our small Hotel Fleur de Lys. Yes you are right, it is a bit old fashion. We are proud to tell you that the main part of the Hotel is 150 years old. By the remodelings we carefully reuse the old woods, windows and stone floors. In most of... More

"WOW" was our first word, since we didn't expect such a nice hotel in the center of San Jose.

We stayed at this hotel for a total of 3 nights at the start and end of our tour, staying in 2 different rooms, and this was the worst out of all the hotels we stayed in. Voyages Jules Verne have used the Fleur de Lys on their Costa Rica tour for a while now, but are moving to another... More

The exterior of the hotel isn't much, but the interior is absolutely charming - colorful tiles, pre-Columbian art on the walls, decorative fountain, and wood paneling. The semi-transparent corrugated panels over hotel common areas give the whole place a nice brightness. When my husband and I showed up with our toddler and reservations for a basic room through a package... More

We have stayed here for 2 nights in April 2010 as a starting hub/finishing hub to our travels through Costa Rica. The rooms are clean but the accomodation I would rather class as a B&B and not a Hotel. Their evening dinners read and are priced like a 5* Hotel which Fleur de Lys clearly isn’t. If you want a...

We traveled with a flexi-drive program that gave us the choice of over 100 motels/B&Bs in Costa Rica. They pre-booked this place for us for our first night. They said it was their second choice in the San Jose area (first choice was booked). However, we enjoyed it. At the end of our trip, we stayed the last night back... More

Don't stay here if you can avoid it. The hotel rooms vary from acceptable to downright awful. The worst are dark and smelly and the best are OKish. The staff don't seem to have any interest in their guests and the area the hotel is in is not good. During our tour we stayed here on three separate nights and... More

We stayed here four nights, in three different rooms, during a tour which started, ended, and had a mid point in San Jose. All the rooms were different and we learnt from other family and tour members that they vary considerably in size and brightness. All were clean, with comfortable beds, coffee making machines, TV etc. The hallways, particularly the... More
