Overall, the hotel itself was great - the staff were friendly and helpful, procedures were streamlined, my room was spacious and well furnished. Particular kudos to the waitstaff in both the restaurant/bar and the breakfast room - polished and cheerful and everything you could ask for. Two negatives - housekeeping, while doing a great job with cleaning the room, was... More

Spent three nights in and out of San Jose. Food was good. The hotel is tired. Cracked windows, hooks and fixtures falling off the walls. Somewhat musty. This hotel needs a total renewal. Must have been quite the place when it was built, many years ago.

We stayed here the first and last nights of our tour with Gate 1 Travel. The place is huge - it's like a maze going to your room. Very nice rooms, though, and our first visit was uneventful. Our second visit was a bit more complicated. The room had apparently been occupied, because someone had left some trash in the... More

Loved the buffet breakfast which is included with room. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. 15 minute walk from downtown although through a bit of a rough area. I stayed 3 times from Dec/14-Jan/15 and friendliness of hotel staff was average to poor. They are in cahoots with the taxi drivers for unfair fixed fairs. If you want a fair taxi... More

I have visited San Jose several times on business, but had not stayed at the Radisson before. This time I was on holiday with my wife and teenage son. We stayed at the hotel for two nights. We booked a superior room with two double beds. On our floor we had a small refreshment area. This had a limited breakfast... More

I just returned from a week in Costa Rica traveling all over the city. This location in Tournon was a perfect spot to radiate out to different areas.

I stayed here for one night with a Costa Rican friend. The room was large and clean. I was on the ground floor - room 1003. As I went down a floor from the lobby I expected it to be dingy and like a basement but it wasn't. In fact, the window in the room faced the interior courtyard/pool area... More
