But it was the worst value of anywhere we stayed. The priciest place we stayed in, but a tiny room on an inside corridor (so no outside windows, which... More

I have stayed at the Dunn Inn 4 times on my last two trips to Costa Rica last year (2013). Each time I have stayed there the service has been excellent. I have been both picked up and dropped off at San Jose International Airport by transportation provided by the hotel, and the transportation fee has been reasonable. The rooms... More

We stayed in Hotel Dunn Inn for two nights and thought it was excellent. Good service, nice restaurant and bar--really friendly staff. The location was great--walking distance to downtown, but a little removed so not noisy. The rooms are really tiny, but we weren't in our room except to sleep (pretty much that is all you can do in your... More

Reasonably priced, quite, perfect location. You can walk to the Central Market and many other spots. Rooms are clean and service is excellent. Food is pretty good too. Try the Azteca soup. You'll love it!

Service from Hotel 9 after trying to get our refund from our last night we didn't stay there has been awful. They do not respond to many email and phone requests...guess it's... More

Stayed here in advance of our flight out. Location is good for getting out and about, and is about 20-25 min drive to the airport if no traffic. The service from everyone we interacted with was very good, everyone was friendly and helpful, and any questions we had were addressed right away. We used the hotel's driver to get to... More

Thank you for your comments. I'm glad our staff was able to respond to your needs in an efficient way. The hotel used to be a mansion back in 1929. When it was restored to become a hotel the original structure was respected. Every room has it's own charm. I will like to invite you in your next trip to... More

I stayed at the Dunn in for a few days on a quick getaway for golfing and fishing. The room I stayed in was great. It was very clean, just the right amount of space and most importantly very quiet. I slept comfortable and well with no disruptions. The hotel staff was very friendly and always willing to help. I... More
