Free HIGH speed internet ( 3.1mb/s) Wonderful place, clean and funky. Only down side is it is located in red light area of town and at night seems a bit sketchy.

We enjoyed the great breakfast in the garden watching blue-gray tanangers come feed on the fruit the staff put out. The desk staff were very helpful and accommodating, and the room was fine though a bit warm for a fan only to keep cool ... no screens on the windows meant bugs and street noise came in all night, but...

Our rental car window was smashed and our car was ransacked as we unloaded our vehicle. There is no on site parking and you are at the mercy of the street. Good luck if you stay here, wouldn't advise it. We left without staying and can't get our money refunded.

When my bank card was eaten by a local bank machine (do not ever trust Banco Popular ATMs) the staff couldn't have been more helpful. They connected me to my bank back home and I was able to take care of things quickly. The hotel is spotless. I mean spotless. I've traveled all over the world and this place is... More

We had the hotel shuttle pick us up from the airport and they were waiting for us as soon as we came out of the airport. The entire staff was so friendly and helpful! There was a World Cup qualifying soccer game the night that we arrived, and we told the front desk that we would love to go and... More

We stayed here in first and last night in Costa Rica. Located outside the city center in a quiet area. It could be a really nice little hotel but the first room we had was not nice at all, very dirty beds and blankets and with the bathroom outside. Some rooms are only to reach via small steps and nobody... More

We, that's my parents (>70) and me (<40), stayed at this place for our first and our last night in Costa Rica during our family holiday. It was our first time in this land and our expectations for such an exotic destination were rather high (and, altogether, weren't disappointed). We arrived late in San Jose but the welcome in this...

We booked a room here last minute and was put into a bottom of the barrel room in the front, street-side, right above the entrance of the hotel and across the street from a very popular restaurant. Do the Math: loud, bright, loud, and louder, with a bit of loud loudness. There was about a 3-hour respite in the middle... More

I stayed here for 1 night because the Hotel Don Carlos where I spent the rest of my stay in San Jose was full and this hotel is nearby. I paid $10 less for this hotel but would rather have spent an extra $10 and stayed at Don Carlos. Also there are no safety deposit boxes in the rooms but... More
