We need to stay one night (65.00) in San Jose before heading to Quepos since we arrived very late. This hotel had the requested driver waiting for us (30.00) to take us to the hotel. It was clean and I was surprise to see the room and bathroom be so spacious. The stay included a breakfast that was taste ,nothing... More

We are budget travelers, so this hotel was a bit on the expensive side for us ($40a night), but it is very nicely situated, so we saved money by not having to take a cab to or from the hotel. A very god place if just staying for one night. It's about 20min to the Terminal gean caribe (for e.g.... More

The cocoon hotel isn't luxurious, it wasn't what I had in mind before I came to Costa Rica. That being said, I hadn't realized quite what the country is like. The hotel was safe, in a great location and provided a nice complementary breakfast in addition to having a bar downstairs which we grabbed a few drinks at during our... More

We were greeted warmly by Susan at the front desk, she was a perfect mix of professional, happy and accommodating. There was a slight mix up with our booking make through booking.com as we weren't able to book a "triple room" for us and our 13 year old (it said she would be "free"). I had tried to email the...

My wife and I decided to spend two days in San Jose after a nice beach Holiday in Manuel Antonio at the Pacific Side. Cocoon Hotel was a good option for us as it was located close to the City center. It is a very correct 3 stars, clean, good staff service and the rate is cheap and includes a... More

The reason i booked Cicoon Hotel in San Jose with my family is the i have payed for a correct conditions. The front desk in the hotel we stayed in Manuel Antinio gave us a brochure with 25% discount for cocoon Hotel which was really ok for the 2 nights we stayed there. The location not very nice but who... More

For us it is a very convenient hotel because it was not far away from the airport and the location is about 5 min walking from the center of San Jose. Everything is clean inside and the service is ok. The front desk helped us to choose some tours which was very nice. We think with the rate we payed,... More

I booked this place on Hotwire and for some reason it had 3.5 stars... No way! The neighbourhood was unsafe and I was even told by the (friendly) receptionist that I should NOT walk around at night. The room I was in was very smelly and musty no AC, just terrible blue LED lighting. When I asked to change rooms... More

We were very welcome from the front desk and they offered us a very good rate for a nice room. We had breakfast included in... More

To be alone in San Jose, you have to be close to everything, that is why i choosed Cocoon Hotel for my 2 Days in this City which lives day& night. The hotel is also nice and cheap offering also some tours and has access to all the facilities of San Jose. I recommend this hotel if your budget is... More
