The owners keep the front door and the garden door... More

The location of this hotel is really close to the historic downtown area, and the staff is very helpful and accommodating. For the price, its a great value and I would definitely stay there in the future!

Friendly family run small hotel with personal service. Excellent location right in city centre near Plaza Morazán. Good breakfast. No real frills but good value for money. All in all good choice for a city centre stay

David you are fabulous, thanks so much for you help and your beautiful smile. Kekoldi is a not a pristine 5 star hotel, but it was perfect for my San Jose stay. Reasonably priced and a great location.
