The hotel is well located, just 1 Km from downtown and near good restaurants a fast food rest. (Pizza Hut, Subway, Taco Makers, etc. ) We walk around the hotel during day time and early night without any problems. Of course taking the usual travel advised that you will take in your city.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2010

I was in Costa Rica for a week and I stayed at Hotel Centro Colon the last night in order to be closer to the airport. The kindest thing I can say is, "Ugh!". The reservation was made by travel agent friends of my sister-in-law (who is a Tica) and I can only imagine that they've never actually seen one... More
