I have pretty simple needs in a hotel when I'm traveling. I want something clean, safe, & comfortable. I don't want fancy Western style furnishings when I'm in a different country. They usually cost too much & miss the mark. Apartotel La Sabana was clean, furnished to meet my needs without excess, and safe. The hotel staff were very nice... More

Nice rooms, nice pool with well tended gardens, good location near enough to town (we walked it but cabs are very cheap and arrive at reception in less than a minute). Breakfast was the best we had on our three week trip in Costa Rica Belize and Mexico! and included in the price. Staff so helpful and friendly, very clean... More

One of my favorite hotels in a big city, not just in Central America, but anywhere I have traveled! Excellent, friendly service, very clean, and breakfast was amazing, with just 2 lady's putting the whole thing together! Location is good, very close to downtown, and the airport. The hotel is quiet, as is the neighborhood, top that off with a... More

A great place to stay in and out of San Jose. Budget friendly, clean, convenient, with a helpful staff and wonderful breakfast. We stayed there upon flying into country the night before a multi day rafting trip. We were to stay there upon our return from rafting to find our room was not available. They set us up in a...

The owners have given a lot of attention to detail here. I love the pillows on the pool lounge chairs. It's next to Sabana park which is a great location. All the staff are very accommodating. The breakfast was always adequate and usually something different every morning.

Perfect place if you're staying a day or two in San José. Quite close to the airport and they have a free shuttle bus to and fro the airport. However, the shuttle bus is only free until 16.00. After that you have to pay, still cheaper than a taxi though. Fantastic breakfast and helpful staff!

Thank you for your review!! So glad you enjoyed your stay with us, specially our location and breakfast!! We are close enough to everything, but far enough so that you can feel like you are in an oasis in the middle of the city. It´s great to be close attactions downtown and in Escazu, but not so nice to relax... More

I stay at La Sabana every time I visit San Jose! The extra airport service was an added benefit during my recent stay. Reception staff is professional. Alberto is especially kind...with a big smile and great service. Dining room personnel greet guests warmly and provide my favorite breakfast meal (gallo pinto con huevo frito) just the way I like it.... More

Found this place while searching for a dentist. We stayed there for two weeks. We were impressed with the way they handled our tour departures and arrivals back at the hotel. We had no issues at all. They have a washer and drier on site so you dont have to look for a laundry. The pool is great. and now... More

Quiet location close to Sabana Park. Enough room for our family of 5 though the bathroom was very small. Staff is very friendly. Swimming pool is not heated and is cold but that didn't stop my kids from swimming. Would recommend for a short stay.

A nice place with beautiful pool, garden, mosaics and great breakfast! My only issue was that in the family apartment, the couch which was supposed to be a bed for a fifth person was very uncomfortable to sleep on.
