Beautiful converted mansion. Stunning dining room and open-air bar, garden atriums, rooftop jacuzzis and lounge chairs, and lots of wonderful historical photos of Costa Rica. Dark wood interiors, impeccable service. We were upgraded to a garden room.We just did an overnight stay on our way to Manuel Antonio and were very pleased. Try Tinjo ginger bomb cocktails at the bar... More

They do not live up to the price they are charging. Rooms are simple and no space. Bathrooms are small. No extra luxury in the rooms. Just a fancy lobby and restaurant. Not really worth the price they charge.

Upon arrival at the hotel we were welcomed with drinks.Checking in went fast and smoothly. Our room was nicely decorated just as the rest of the hotel was. The windows were open so there was a nice fresh atmoshere in the room. Coffeemaking facilities, free WiFi, a fruit platter and all the appropriate amenities were included. The room was superclean...

This is a colonial hotel, full of elegance, but for those who want to pay the expensive fare, it is fair and worth it. herds are comfortable and service is good. Actually the whole team worked remarkably hard to solve an internet problem I had.

We spent one night here and had a fantastic experience. Hotel staff greeted us out front and signaled ahead to the check in staff. We were greeted with fresh wash cloths and juice on check in. Excellent service, wonderful room with a very comfortable bed. We had a ground floor room off the fountain courtyard. We loved the charm, but... More

Close to the Avenida Colon this nicely restaured old house offers very quiet rooms where you really feel that you are in Central America. Plenty of patios and fountains. Rooms are very clean but some may be rather dark being at the inside of the house. Small sun terrace with jacuzzi.Good breakfast a la carte in very nice patio.

Probably a 20/30 minute drive from the airport to town. We only had one night at the hotel and once we got there it was so nice that we decided not to go out and to make the most of the hotel instead. We had lunch there as the dinning area is beautiful, they have a great menu, and the... More

We stayed 2 nights with our family. The city of San Jose is very nice, but there is very little to do and it feels a little unsafe after dark. I think the government could spend a little time cleaning up the public areas in the city and making it a little more tourist friendly. The hotel on the other... More

This was a lovely, quaint hotel with a friendly staff and a top notch restaurant. We would certainly stay here again if going to San Jose. We loved the quiet spa tubs on the terrace. We had a ground floor room which faced a lush, courtyard full of plants and trees. It had a nice gift shop too with local... More
