A very nice and quiet business hotel, staff is nice, food (breakfast) is excellent. It was a one night stay after our one week tour, just to sleepover... Beds and pillows were great, very relaxing and a very good sleep No amenities for family

I went to San José for a long weekend. I decided to stay near La Sabana because I like to walk there. I found this hotel on the web. It is almost in front of La Sabana, very close to Paseo Colón and there are restaurants and a supermarket at walking distances. The staff is nice. Breakfast is included and... More

This is a quiet place out from town. If one is looking for a stop over and leaving the next day then the Rincon is a good place. Meal are just average. Staff is below average. Any thing that was needed was never done with a smiley face and had to be forced. Not like the rest of Costa Rica... More

We are two professional adults on vacation in Costa Rica for the first time in June 2013. If you wanted to experience the Costa Rican hotel without relying on the familiar US names such as Marriott or Hyatt, try out Rincon Del Valle in San Jose Costa Rica. The hotel was small although not a "boutique" hotel. It had 41... More

Excellent small hotel. Very clean, comfortable, and spacious rooms. Free wireless (with decent bandwidth) was available throughout the building. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the desk staff spoke good English. The restaurant was good, if somewhat limited in choice. There are no elevators, but it's only two storeys. My only minor complaint was that English TV channels were limited... More
