The hotel is amazing and it is in a good part of San José. Not in the center but near it. The staff was very kind and the room was really really comfortable.

The Hotel is located close to The City Centre. Spacious room, good breakfast and Good value. Paid USD 109 for a Double including breakfast. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The Hotel Building Itself is a Bit Old.

As other reviews have said, it's a bit out of the center, but having experienced the noise and traffic chaos of downtown, that's perhaps no bad thing. The heavy concrete architecture of the place can be a bit overpowering, but the willingness of the staff, the comfortable beds and the good restaurant all add up fairly well. As a part... More

I have been stayed at Radisson San Jose couple time, it's not far away from downtown, and nearby the companies I visited. All the trips can be arranged at the counter, the travel agent would pick you up from the hotel, and send you back; even can order cafe Britt online, delivery to the hotel.

I stayed three nights as part of a convention. My room (2027) was spacious and well equipped, however, there was a “moldy” smell in the air when entering the room. Bed was really comfortable, it had a control for changing the firmness of the mattress. Great for a business trip if the location works for you. Wireless internet is free.
