In my opinion there are better places to visit in Costa Rica than San Jose. However, if you happen to search a hotel for just one night, then the Radisson might be ok. That said, be informed that it is very noisy: trucks from the street, people on the hallway, the refrigerator, and some sort of generator in room or... More

The hotel was very nice. The room numbers and floors were a little bit confusing but eventually the room was very nice. Very big room with 2 king size beds and a very nice and big desk. The bathroom was well equipped. And the first shower in Central America that was placed higher then my head. Here is my but.... More

I stayed in the Executive suite, well worth it, the breakfast bar was just down the hall, close to the room. The bed was so comfy, well decorated too, room service was polite and friendly. The rooms were super clean. I would stay there again, longer next time.

Bathroom is dark and humid, plumbing aged and not properly functionning, however mattress is very good and firm. Poor quality of the breakfast, no homemade juice of jams, limited choice, and on average, fat products. Size of the rooms is good, but you will find in San José much better hotels in this range of prices.

Third time I have stayed at the Radisson in San Jose, Costa Rica. Rooms are clean and well appointed. Staff is awesome and speak excellent English. Food in all restaurants was great tasting and great value. Gym, pool and spa were all clean. I will be back in December.

Rooms are spacious with excellent staff service. Pool and gym kept very clean. I was there for two weeks and enjoyed the experience as much the last day which often is not the case with a long stay. As nice as any hotel in the states which would be more expensive. Not in walking distance of much but the doorman... More

I choose this hotel for the location and the pool. The service at the hotel was great. I am from Texas and my girlfriend is a Tica. The staff was wonderful. Tour recommendations, the Casino attached to the hotel, local restaurants… The room service is outstanding. FYI: San Jose is almost 4,000ft in elevation. The water in the pool is... More

The price was good, but the stay was average. There are no options in the immediate area of the hotel for shopping and dining and the internal options are limited. Friendly staff, but it stops there. The room had a musty smell only when the AC was on and the vent directed air right to the head of the bed,... More

I would recommend the Radisson to anyone staying in San Jose. The entire staff was professional, friendly and accommodating. The dining prices were reasonable. A few friends in our party, loved the gym and worked out daily. Great hotel to stay in.

Even if you get a discount rate on a travel website, there is really no point staying here if you're a tourist. This hotel, while nice, is for business travelers who are paying with the company credit card.
