Really good. Nothing to complain about! We had a delightful journey and were walking distance from the main attractions. The only bummer(which we can totally understand) is that we had the view of a parking lot. But overall, great service, great food, great hotel. Thanks for the great time!

What a surprisingly lovely hotel for such a cheap price ($137)! Stayed here for one night only, but wish it had been for longer. Arrived a bit early and room wasn't ready yet. Concierge stored our bags, gave us towels, and plied us with cookies, freshly squeezed juice, and cafe con leche while we waited. We changed into bathing suits... More

We can't say enough good things about Apartotel la Sabana. The attentive staff went out of their way to make sure every part of our stay was excellent.

My family of 5 stayed in the family apartment. It was clean and comfortable. The beds and pillows are especially comfortable. The pool here is nice and the staff is friendly and professional.

I have been staying at this hotel every time I go to Costa Rica. I love it! The staff are courteous, cordial and extremely helpful. The rooms are lovely.

Stayed here for a week, the room was clean and very roomy. The staff was so helpful and polite. The breakfast was fabulous, best oatmeal I have ever had ! Would recommend Apartotel La Sabana to anyone that is looking for a quite, clean, and very affordable place that is also convenient to the downtown San Jose area

This was our last stop before returning home and I wanted to book somewhere inexpensive and convenient. The room was small, but unlike the more expensive places we stayed elsewhere, had a television, a refrigerator, a shower with good water pressure, and air conditioning.
