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

Good value hotel, clean and modern rooms, had to ask for change in room as first presented with a lower rate room. We did get moved eventually (possibly a language problem). Hotel was quiet and lacked any atmosphere, restaurant was quite we ate alone one evening, but the food was very good and reasonably priced. The hotel serves a purpose... More

This hotel was an excellent purchase using an online resource (Orbitz). The room we got for that rate was nothing flashy (completely interior room) but the air conditioning and all of the other electro mechanicals worked fine. Access to the open air hot tub facility was a nice benefit as well, it was clean and well maintained and only a... More

Great location. Close to Sabana Park and Costa Rica National Stadium. Clean rooms. Staff very kind. The bellboy is amazing. I went with my girlfriend to participate in the Correcaminos Half Marathon. And the hotel gave us the best stay to rest after run. Not included breakfast. Parking lot is small. Only 4 cars. In general we have a Great... More

For $60 this place is easy to like. Smallish rooms, but comfortable. Comfortable bed, good internet service, good breakfast (not included) friendly staff, good TV with lots of channels. Location is only fair, not a whole lot of choices in the area for restaurants or shopping, but very close to a large, nice park. I recommend it unless you want... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. It was great rooms with air condition, mini-fridge, cable tv and everything else you might wish for! Rooms are very clean. The staff is super helpful, and really goes all the way to make your stay great! In addition to this, the area is a 10 minute taxi drive from the city... More

The rooms look just like the pictures. I made a reservation for a room with two beds but was given a room with just one bed. I did not realize this until I reached the room and by then it was 1 a.m. so I decided to keep the room. Make sure to ask when you check in that you... More

We stayed here for a couple nights for a wedding. We were very happy with the huge (2x2) comfortable beds, after having stayed in B&Bs until then. There's a nice jacuzzi and decent restaurant, breakfast was not that special for the $12,-. Location was quiet and good for our wedding, approx 25min walk from downtown San Jose (which doesn't offer... More

If you are looking for an elegant hotel near Parque Sabana, you have to consider the Rincon del Valle! I have stayed there on two different trips to San Jose and have enjoyed their hospitality both times. The rooms are very nice and spacious. The staff is the best part-they treat you like royalty and family at the same time.

The hotel itself is OK, nothing special. We stayed the night we flew in to San Jose and they night before we flew out. Wished we would have picked a place that was more centrally located where we could have walked to have dinner. We felt kind of trapped. The restaurant is pretty good we ate there several times and...
