This is an excellently located hotel twenty minutes from the airport just off Rt1. At the NW corner of La Sabana Park (the former airport!) turn right at the car dealership onto the road running next to the park, in two blocks turn right at the Rosti Pollo. Easy to find in a city with no street signs, this location... More

Sabana is a perfect way to start your trip in Costa Rica. They personally meet you at the airport, to shuttle you to the hotel (20 min ride)...The rooms are immaculate, staff is great, breakfast delicious, and they shuttle you back to the airport (Free of charge) and off you go, to your next destination! Will definitely return next year.

This is a great place to stay if you have business in San Jose, shopping or are leave the next day for home. It's central location makes it easy to go in any direction and still not have to drive or taxi far. A perfect place to stay if you have an American Embassy appointment. In the evening there are...

We have got a nice apartment with two rooms and a full kitchen. A double bed, two full beds and a sofa at the living room fits all our needs for 5 adults. Staff is very friendly. Pool was cold. Breakfast was very nice. All the premises were kept clean. Space at the garage was limited and they kept car... More

We stayed here for 4 nights on arrival in Costa Rica & couldn't have been happier with our choice. We had arranged for a free airport transfer on arrival (partnered with Interbus) and although our plane had been delayed and we were 1.5 hrs late, our transfer was still there and swiftly took us to the hotel. It was quite... More

We stayed here from 2-4-15 to 2-11-15. Alberto helped make this trip our best in 59 years off marriage. Also Christian and all the staff were excellent. Our safety was never in question and we walked to many locations. We will go back to this hotel and take another 4 or 5 tours. Oh yes, hotel super clean, great breakfast... More

This lovely hotel is not in the center of the city which makes it quieter and easier to breathe without all the exhaust from the center. They are overwhelmingly helpful and the value is unreal. We paid 85$ for an overnight in a completely comfortable and clean room with transfers two ways and a very hearty delicious breakfast Included. We... More

Thank you so much for your review! So glad you had a pleasant and quiet stay with us!! It is true, staying right in the middle of downtown San José can be a bit of a noisy and smoky experience! We try to offer easy access to all attractions, but a bit farther away from the action. This allows you... More

Boutique hotel with beautiful grounds, super clean and a great breakfast. Stayed here upon arriving to CR before heading out on our adventure and then again on our way back the night before leaving.

La Sabana is a lovely little hotel, arranged around a pretty swimming pool with mosaic fountain features. It's perfect for starting or ending your stay in Costa Rica, with the free and easy airport transfer. The staff were all really helpful and professional, and the breakfast buffet was great (eggs cooked fresh to your liking, plus pancakes, rice & beans,... More

This review is long overdue since I stayed in this hotel in October of 2014, but I've had my hands full since then becauseI just welcomed my new baby boy. My husband and I decided to do something nice before the arrival of our second child, so we decided we would visit Costa Rica, since we had never been to... More
