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. Neighborhood is good with some decent food options within walking and across from the National stadium. Easy freeway access and the service was good. Would definitely... More

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

My teen son and I stayed here our first and last nights in Costa Rica in order to be near to the airport. They offer a free shuttle to and from the airport, which was great.

Chose this place to stay the night before our flight home. We wished we had more time to enjoy the lovely atmosphere, breakfast and pool. It is in a great location near a huge park and plenty of very good restaurants. The staff is very professional and courteous. It is VERY quiet and very comfortable. Free fast wifi. A must... More

We stayed in a Family Suite for two non-consecutive nights during a recent trip to Costa Rica and this hotel was exactly what we were looking for. It is spotlessly clean, has a great pool area, includes a fantastic breakfast, a free shuttle to the airport and the staff could not be more accommodating. They were happy to store our... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks and was impressed with the cleanliness and location of the hotel. Considering it is a service apartment, the kitchen was well equipped and the staff was very friendly. The Wi-Fi was very choppy and got very annoying after a point of time. Considering it was a business travel, they could have done... More
