After spending several days in a sub-par, rat-hole in Santa Teresa, we booked several night stay here. It is a wonderful, 5-star hotel. It is a bit difficult to locate the entrance as it is located in a sort of huge traffic circle where you could easily enter onto a freeway or into a neighborhood and like everything in Costa... More

I traveled here with my two younger brothers, we are from the USA & knew absolutely no Spanish & planned the trip in two days.

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our Gate 1 Travel tour and the hotel was very nice. Even though it is clearly a business hotel (service is outstanding), had rooms of decent size, bathrooms were large and modern. Different from the boutique hotels we stayed in during the rest of our stay since it is a chain,... More

Stayed at the Radisson Hotel as our jump off point for our tour of Costa Rica with Gate 1 Travel. Me and my family loved this hotel. They had good customer service, the room was clean and comfortable, but the room does show some age.... The Radisson was about a 15 minute walk to Mercado Central which was great for... More

It's difficult to review this hotel because I stayed here for our last night in Costa Rica. I had just stayed at hotels in the jungle and on the beach. So, this location was very different, and I really didn't like San Jose. That being said, our room was a good size, there was free water bottles in the room,... More

I enjoyed my stay here. Based on the mixed bag of Tripadvisor reviews, I didn't know what to expect. As a Club Carlson gold elite member, the hotel was kind enough to provide me a complimentary upgrade to one of their nicer suites. The decor and furnishings of the room were definitely older and would benefit greatly from an update.... More

Excellent rooms, breakfast reasonnable. The Wifi is good, and there is a gym on-site. Service is OK and the restaurant is worth a try. Location seems not too central, but connections are fine. Overall, recommended.
