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

My family just got back from our trip which started and ended with a night at Apartotel La Sabana. First of all, the service is top notch! David and Alberto were fabulous at providing information for anything we needed. We had the family room (2 rooms with a kitchenette): Beds were comfy and clean-slept great. Bathroom has great water pressure,... More

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. Although we arrived too late to enjoy it, the pool area was very inviting. The reason... More

We stayed at this hotel twice. Once after our arrival in Costarica and then bewore our departure. It was a great choice. The hotel is located near the Sabana park, just a few minutes from city center by taxi. The reception, the patio with the pool and the rooms are very nice, stylish equiped and clean.

Last night in Costa Rica before our return flight. I decided to try to save a little by booking this hotel. I ended up paying for it by a hard bed. They gave us a queen size bed but is really a double size. The air condition was an individual one right next to the bed, very noisy and uncomfortable... More

We had a lovely stay here and got to relax by the lovely pool after our very very long flight. Very close to the park. Breakfast was very good. Room was very clean and had everything that we needed for our stay.

Always immaculate, every corner of this hotel. Very convenient to most things, and next to everything on the west side of San Jose. By the park, nice to walk, watch soccer or other games, and there is enough to eat nearby. I just wouldn't consider staying anywhere else! We left a waking stick in our room, and we were called...
