Me and my friend stayed here for a night as a result of a result of another hotel messing up our reservation. The price was OK as for a very last minute booking. Reception lady was extremely nice and helpful. Hotel is just minutes away from TICA International bus station. The superior room we were upgraded to was nice and... More

Really enjoy our stays at Hotel Cacts when coming through San Jose. I'm not much one for the big city, too much noise and traffic. However I often need to go to San Jose to shop or other business stops. I stay at Cacts because it is fairly priced, very clean, you get a quiet nights sleep and Elecxa, the... More

I enjoyed my short stay here, beautiful rooftop to enjoy fresh fruit and watch the birds. Good location if you want to be close to downtown and you're not looking to spend a lot of money. The people were all very kind and helpful. Enjoyed walking out of my room to the smell of flowers...

I love Hotel Cacts. Elecxa is about as friendly as they get. She knows all about the country and goes out of her way to make sure you find your way around and get booked on all sorts of adventures. I have stayed there every single time I am in San Jose - probably a total of 50 nights over... More

I have been staying at the CACTs since 1996 when I worked down in Guapiles. It only gets better and the owner Elecxa Rojas is the most wonderful person in Costa Rica. Her and her staff will do anything to make your stay enjoyable. About 15 years ago I hesitated to bring my brothers who were visiting me in Costa... More

Even though you are in the city, the open design of Hotel Cacts gives you the feeling of the country with no enclosed hallways and a wonderful breeze. The owners where very helpful in every respect, and provided information on dining, arranged transport, and supported my business needs as well.

The Hotel Cacts in San Jose has a little-known secret: they have two apartments across the street from the hotel that are for rent by the month. We spent 30 days (mid-December to mid January) in the ground floor apartment. Very nice, high ceilings, recently renovated. Stove, Fridge, Microwave, some pots & pans, dishes. A Krups cappuccino maker (buy some... More

Moved to this hotel right next to the dental clinic and much preferred the atmosphere over the one at the clinic. Just as convenient but more open and with the bonus of a roof top terrace where my husband could smoke. Very classically Spanish in style and clean
