This hotel is great! Safe, clean, good location. The staff if very attentative and helpful. We stayed four nights and everything was affordable. (2 queen sleep number beds, executive suite, approx. $100usd a night). Would definitely recommend this hotel!

I don`t know who decorated the rooms but the style of my room was rather strange. Plus that heavy smell of brocade fabrics when I opened the door. There is a pretty bizarre combination of naked concrete walls, dark furniture and curtains/pillows/lamps in the infamous 70th green color scheme. Generally I like to stay at Radisson cause they give you... More

This is a nice hotel for business and tourist travelers. The exterior gardens of the hotel are very nice. However, as a tourist, be careful of the surrounding area. Tourists could be a potential target. The rooms were very nice. The bed was very comfortable. I had very positive experiences with the restaurant and room service. The staff was very... More

During our two week eco-tour of Costa Rica, we stayed our first two nights at this hotel, which is beautifully designed, with gorgeous outdoor gardens, an outdoor swimming pool, and attractive, rooms, lobby, and restaurants. The service staff speaks reasonably good English and is quite hospitable.

I stayed here the first and last night of the tour I was on. The prices were high in the bar and restaurant and going into the city was not reasonable given our short time there. Tried to order a bottle of wine but no one seemed to know how much it cost...they managed to work it out but still... More

Overall, very nice hotel but a little bit of a walk from Central Ave. Lots of food options near by, and parking was abundant. We didn't get a chance to visit the gym or hit up the pools, but they were nice to have. We rented the place for 4 days, but primarily used it as book ends for our... More

I stayed for three nights at the Radisson. Facilities are well maintained, clean and they have good wifi. Breakfast was really good, and the staff were really good helping me out dealing with some flight reservation issues.

The Radisson Europa is a nice business/tourist class boutique hotel but poorly located. The Pros: Rooms are nice and well appointed in a stylish modern Latin theme. The hotel building is fairly new and well maintained, with attractive common areas. The rooms offer no significant view, but the hotel has a nice pool/spa complex in the inner courtyard.
