This hotel served it purpose. It is in a not as desirable part of town but you can always take a cab home if your out late at night. The breakfast was surprisingly good, extra charges for additional items but the complementary breakfast items great on their own. Wifi was a bit problematic and the walls are thin. I did... More

We stayed here for one night (9/16) before catching a flight early the next morning. Our room was very clean, had A/C, and was perfect for our one night in San Jose. The cost was good, and included a made to order breakfast. The breakfast itself was very tasty and quick! We appreciated that we were able to print out... More

Our room was shabby. It had one small window with a view of a wall about a metre away (so very little light). There were not enough hooks for the curtains, so they drooped down from the rail. We had a bare light bulb hanging from the ceiling. There was a distinct smell of something not too nice coming from... More

We choose to stay at this hotel because it was near the Caribenos bus station, which we needed to be at to take public transport to Tortuguero the next morning. There was nothing fancy or special about this hotel, but the location was good. We did venture out for dinner at the Central Market, and the area did look a... More

We stayed at this hotel owing mainly to issues of cost. It seems that hotels in San José and Costa Rica generally are not cheap. This hotel too included breakfast, although it has to be said the breakfast was fairly meagre. Some people may find the location a bit intimidating - there are several night clubs (I think more like... More

We stayed at this hotel for just one night in San Jose. The staff are nice and friendly, guarded parking is included and breakfast is included continental style. Located in the charismatic slums of San Jose only 7kms away from the airport, this hotel is perfect if you just need a place to crash. It sure beats staying in a... More

We had a great time here and the staff is exceptional! Clean rooms. In a busy part of San Jose but I didn't notice much street noise at night. Great breakfast! We will stay again when we visit San Jose.
