A great and comfortable stay with a fabulous "Tico" breakfast in the morning! Upon my arrival, the staff greeted me with fantastic Costa Rican coffee. Very clean throughout. Franklin at the door was most helpful with directions to an easy walk to city center and Mercado Central. I loved the location which was close to the airport and everything (shopping,... More

Ok hotel for a short stay. It is close to the airport and to the city center, although I wouldnt recommend staying in San Jose for more than a day. The breakfast was very nice. Rooms are dark and gloomy but fairly clean. Make sure that if you take their transport back to the airport that you leave early enough... More

The hotel is clean, the staff really friendly and helpful and the location safe and away from the San Jose downtown craziness and loudness. We did though have slight sleeping problems due to noise although our room was on the back side of the hotel. Until late at night and pretty early in the morning (and I mean reaaally early,... More

Lovely place for us to stay arriving and leaving Costa Rica. Professional staff, friendly, welcoming and clean. A pleasure to stay here. It felt great to be coming back here after travelling around the country for three weeks.

We loved this place! This was our last stop before heading back home so we only stayed one night. Franklin, the host, was super helpful and friendly. He first welcomed us with fresh juice, coffee, and cookies and then provided us with a map to get us to the mercado (about a 30 min walk or 5-10min cab ride). We... More

We have a really good time. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the doorman was very nice, ready to open the door, to help with the luggage and whatever you need his help.

Convenient, clean, comfortable, stress less place! Staff has been very helpful there are 2 places where to eat around. Shuttle to the airport is a shared shuttle with different hotels, so leave some time before your flight departure.

We really enjoyed our stay at the beginning and end of our trip in Costa Rica at this hotel. Good breakfast, nice staff, parking and swimmingpool. Familyroom is great, normal room maybe a little small for the price.

This was my second stay at Aparthotel Sabana, and both trips were great. Staff is friendly and accommodating, the grounds are impeccably maintained, and the rooms are very nice. Surely there are less pricy options in the area, but the overall experience is worth it. Pura Vida!
