Upon arrival, I was able to check-in with my limited Spanish as the staff in reception did not speak English. My room was located on the ground floor and was very dark with a strong smell of detergent filling out the room. Breakfast was probably the worse, with only some stale bread and children's cereal at the buffet and limited... More

Having arrived in San Jose with no where to stay, I was driven by to Boutique Calle 20 by a taxi driver. I was immediately put at ease by the manager Diego, who spoke perfect English. The service was exactly what you'd expect from staff and very much felt as if your needs were their number one priority. The rooms'... More

If your in San Jose and need a hotel I would stay here. If your using transnica, ticabus, or tracopa, stay here. I would stay here over and over again just for the attention to detail and friendly staff. I was really happy with the hotel and enjoyed the friendly staff, and clean rooms.

There are really only 2 good things I can say about my stay at Hotel Calle 20: It is close to the bus terminal, and the staff tried. That being said, me and my father after having a reservation were left at the door in the middle of not the greatest neighborhood in San Jose, because the reception person didn't... More

When you are leaving on the Transnica bus, this hotel has an excellent location. If not, choose something else! Even though I complain about the place, I could stay there again, but probaby not! However, the staff is very nice and tries its best! Most of the rooms are very small and stuffy with nowhere to put your baggage. Not... More

Our flight came in late, we needed a hotel close to the bus stations to the beach, so we checked out several places first that the cab driver recommended us, but we didn't like until we stumbled upon here. Everyone was very kind during the couple of nights. I loved all the pictures in the halls. We had to check... More
