My family and I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. It was a great hotel, very closed to the park, walmart store and quite. Hotel employees was very helpful in getting around the town. I will surely stop by again.

Excellent rooms, fabulous mountain view from the side I stayed on, delicious, typical Costa Rican hot breakfast included and extremely friendly staff all made for a great few days at this hotel. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. I had a small balcony which was perfect for catching the gorgeous early morning view of the mountains.... More

My second visit here. They continue to operate only of the best mid-range hotels in SJ. Excellent room, superb friendly staff, delightful breakfasts served by two very efficient pleasant kitchen staff, and a pristine pool. To top it off, they provide pick-up and delivery to the airport.

Found this hotel on Tripadvisor, needed a safe place close to the airport between my local Sansa flight from Tambor and the departure flight back to the US. They were very welcoming, offering me a great cup of coffee as I checked in. Immaculate grounds, the pool was great to relax in during the sunny part of the day. Book... More

Even though the facilities and furniture are getting old, in general the hotel is comfortable. Unfortunately, there was a Receptionist that sour my stay. The location is very good. Close to the Sabana Park and even to Escazu (the upper end area).

I stayed here one night before flying home from San Jose. The staff greeted me with delicious homemade cookies and juice (first time ever seeing this). They put me in a nice quiet apartment with an in-room safe on the 2nd floor overlooking the street. The room had new appliances and was comfortable. The only odd thing was that their... More

This was my first choice for a place when I arrived in Costa Rica. I heard of so much problems in the downtown area. I chose this for the proximity to the downtown area and also safety. The shuttle is free from the airport and it is Interbus that picks up many people and drives them to all different hotels.... More

I stayed in the two bedroom apartment with my two children.

We stayed at Aportotel la Sabana after long flights from the United States and Australia. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and the breakfast buffet was amazingly delicious. The hotel also offers an airport pickup, which is really helpful. The hotel is about a 20-30 minute walk from Central San Jose, which isn't too much if you don't mind walking. The... More
