We had room #7 and it was quite spacious with 2 beds and a closet. Bathroom is also good size. Nice view of garden from the window. Breakfast can be eaten out or in - simple but filling. Pleasant walk to Plaza Cultural. Overall would definitely stay again. Thanks to Warren, Winston and the other attendant who willingly gave suggestions... More

The staff was very friendly, rooms clean, and good location. Many places are within walking distance. It is a very good place to stay for the price. Nice breakfast and outdoor patio are a plus. I plan to stay there again.

Our party had Rooms 6&7 and both are large, airy and bright. Each room had a walk in shelved cupboard with a safe box and Room 7 had a small fridge. In common with many hotels there was no luggage bench meaning bags had to be dealt with on the floor, or else on the bed. Not a good idea... More

Stayed here 3 times during our 6 weeks in Costa Rica. Loved each visit and would highly recommend staying here (recommend room 7) Great positioning with a few cafes and restaurants within a couple of blocks and a short walk to the center of the city. The hotel is spotless and cleaned everyday, the garden is a lovely place to... More

The main thing about this hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica is its location. It is on a quiet street in a safe area of this city but it is only a short walk to the main square of San Jose and takes you past banks, supermarkets and bookshops! The hotel itself has a colonial-style courtyard or central garden. The... More

You can't ask for a more convenient location if you want to enjoy downtown San Jose. I spent hours just wandering around the downtown area, which was my plan for this trip. My bed was quite comfortable. Because I have a memory foam mattress at home, I always worry about beds in hotels. This one was quite nice. Besides the... More

Hotel Kekoldi is a great place. I stayed there for two nights and would stay again if travelling back through San Jose. Having arrived at 11 pm to San Jose, the hotel made sure I was picked up after an exhausting day of travelling since 4 am. My room was immaculate; spacious, bright, very clean with hot water 24/7. I... More

I stayed at Hotel Kekoldi one month from January to February 2015. I enjoyed it tremendously. The owner Mr. Francisco and the manager Senor Wilbert were very welcoming and made my stay happy. Try to get a room on the second floor (Room 7 if possible). Breakfast is continental but by far better than I anticipated. Overall, I could not... More

We stayed in Kekoldi Hotel our first night in San Jose. We arrived early in the morning expecting to be able to drop off our luggage in storage until it was time to check in. Instead, Wilbert welcomed us, let us check into our at 7:30 am, and offered us breakfast despite only officially paying for the next day's breakfast.... More

I had expected to really like this place based on the reviews... I usually prefer this type of small hotel. To start off they had messed up my reservations (I had planned to stay twice during my trip). The dates were wrong on the 1st res, and the 2nd res simply wasn't there. I had copies of the confirmations so... More
