We are very happy that we chose this hotel as our 1st hotel experience in Costa Rica. It is a ways from the airport but we were happy to be in the heart of the city and xlose to everything. We arrived about 7am so of course our rooms (we had 3) were not ready since check in time is... More

The staff were all very welcome. Our room was large, clean and comfortable with both a single and double bed. The shower was excellent and the breakfast was even better. This is not the place R overnight before a Monday am flight as the traffic can be very heavy. It's a great place to stay. Highly recommended for 1-2 nights... More

Our room was spacious, clean, and very quiet. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel is located just a few blocks from the National Theater and various museums. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They recommended a good restaurant for dinner and made the reservations for us. The hotel provides, for a fee, transportation to and from the airport....

City centre hotel directly on the pedestrianised section of Avenida Central, close to many important buildings including the Gold Museum and the National Theatre. The hotel entrance can be missed as it is sandwiched between non descript shops but, once inside the place covers much of the block above the tatty shops below. Check-in very friendly and efficient and our... More

Busy centrally located hotel, the staff are very pleasant and helpful. We had a lovely suite with wonderful shower and bath, the beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed uninterrupted good night's sleep. The buffet breakfast was very good, we enjoyed our short stay.

This hotel is smack dab in the middle of the city. Great location that is walking distance from lots of places to eat, shops and... More

This place is right in the center downtown San Jose and offers free off street parking. We stayed there twice - for 1 night each at the beginning and end of our week in CR. The hotel is right on the main pedestrian mall - so you walk out of the place and right into the action. The included breakfast... More
