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.

When we pulled up to the Cocoon Hotel we were very worried that the inside would match the outside - it's in a rowdier part of town. Thankfully we were pleasantly surprised, as it was very nice on the inside. The staff was very nice, and the room was fairly clean. However, because we were in a room that faced... More

This is not a luxury hotel by any means, but is very clean and comfortable. The breakfast included in the price of the room was delicious and more than adequate. I would also like to compliment the staff at the front desk. Andrea, a beautiful Costa Rican girl was very helpful, as was Victor Garcia. I don't remember all of... More

The hotel is clean and very well located ( for those who want to take public bus to the Caribbean coast or the volcanos). We stayed the first night and the last night in this hotel during our trip to Costa Rica. The breakfast is good and the staff is friendly.
