For how much I paid, I didn't expect such a warm and welcoming experience. I an traveling to Santa Teresa but wanted to spend one night in San Jose after a very long flight. This hotel is just charming. You won't get any mountains view and it is just inside the city but if you spend time inside San Jose,... More

The hotel is a good value for the price. We booked a king room and confirmed via email, but were put into a room with two queens. Unsure as to why, since the hotel was definitely mostly empty. (Perhaps the friendly receptionist thought we were traveling as two male friends rather than a couple upon check-in.) The room was spacious... More

We booked this hotel as the reviews said it was a 4 star hotel. This is obviously so incorrect, it is crazy. Our room smelled musty and moldy, the carpets were dirty, we barely had a window, the maid service was terrible, they did not vacum the carpet once, if we had not prepaid for this hotel, we would have...

We stayed here for 1 night and the hotel is absolutely beautiful. The staff is very nice and warm and they try to explain everything to the best of their ability. There's a pool, gym and restaurant on their premises. The breakfast buffet is included in the rate and they have a wide array of things to eat. From traditional... More

I was in a very obscure room. Maybe not enough cleaning. Air condioning was noisy. The best: wi-fi works very well; iron; hair dryer, safe deposit It is a budget hotel, but I am not so sure of the price-quality ratio

I visited last year and I returned this year and quickly booked this hotel after my good experience last year. I like it here because it is in a safe area, the rooms are well decorated and simple, the staff is helpful and friendly, the wifi is working well, the breakfast is good and made fresh for you. What more... More

Nice Location by Sabana Park, Quite... really Comfortable Rooms, with a Good Value. Parking is at a minimum. Staff is very nice & you can get a great price at Hotels.com Food is okay with Omelet Station Included unless room at discount.

We stayed two nights in this hotel while touring round Costa Rica. It is clean and quiet and the staff are friendly. The breakfasts were really good - best we had during our stay in the country! No complaints really apart from the fact that the rooms were very dark - the window looked out onto a wall!

I stayed here with my partner who was attending a nearby conference, for which the location was good. However it is not ideal for visiting central San José, requiring a 4,000 corones ($8) taxi ride. I had to guide taxis back with Google maps as they did not know the precise hotel location. The location by Sabana park is pleasant... More
