I am rewritingthis review to reply to the owner's comments, which I include here for fairness. We may have been unfortunate with our room, but this was an awful hotel for us. Like another reviewer, we were put in the room opposite reception which was dirty and noisy, in addition to which we were bitten by bedbugs. Luckily, we were... More

My family and I recently visited Costa Rica, our first port of call was San Jose, I chose Hotel Kekoldi after reading the reviews here and wasn't disappointed. The staff were very helpful and friendly, made our stay a pleasurable one. The small tropical garden is lovely and relaxing, attracting various birds, the kids loved hanging out there. The rooms...

We stayed here for a couple of nights and it is a very comfortable hotel. Our room was clean, had hot water and was adequate for our needs. The hotel is located in an art deco building away from the noise but still close to all the tourist sites. A substantial breakfast is provided and sets you up for the... More

I almost didn't go hear because if the last review but I am glad I did. First, calling this a hotel is being a bit pretentious. It is really a B&B which is fine by me. It was a mansion once converted into 10 individual bedrooms with individual baths. Nothing fancy but very clean. It is very convenient to the... More

the only good thing is the location close to the city centre. The house is old and needs a renovation. Never accept the rooms just beside the front door, because it is noisy an smelly..To sit in the breakfastroom is not comfortable, because you get all the wind going through. The owners keep the front door and the garden door... More

I was moved to this hotel when my original hotel was full. The staff here were great and accommodating and I had no issues. I was placed in the room across from the check in area and it was really loud. But checking closed at 10:00pm or something like that and then it was fine. From was clean and spacious... 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.
