Pros: Clean Quiet Accessible to airport TV WIFI - bit intermittent Friendly reception/staff Well decorated rooms Clean pool Cons: Basic no frills I recommend this place as a short stay in San Jose as there isn't much to do in the capital or this hotel. Basic rooms that are clean and quiet so that's all you need!

This is perfectly average hotel for a night or 2 in San Jose while on your way to the more scenic areas of Costa Rica. Stayed here before & after an adventure tour. Very easy to get to from the airport - about 15 or 20 minutes. The hotel is nothing to look at but it is in a decent... More

Clean, 5 minute walk from supermarket / ATM, walls are thin as paper though so you can hear literally everything... Good shower pressure/heat, I didn't have breakfast there so can't comment on that. Bed was very comfortable though and room was kept at a comfortable temperature.

Such a horrible, sad looking hotel. Woke up to the construction noise at 6:00am, not from the street but rather the hotel itself. Overall such a sad sad and ugly looking hotel. Don't go there. Oh and the pictures are not the same as the actual rooms.

I stayed for one night with a group in this hotel. The room was small and was packed with three beds. The toilet was small but everything was there. The restaurant provided a very good dinner but the portion was small and for me overpriced. The intent was not working and during the night somebody start to drill and do... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 1 week at the end of October. I booked a standard room but was given a suite for no extra charge! Although the room could have used a fresh coat of paint and some tiles replaced in the bathroom, it was quite satisfactory and comfortable. The A/C worked fine, the beds... More

Stayed here three times during our Costa Rica trip. Rooms are clean and neat. No Elevator but only two story so no problem, Has a modern style. Staff is friendly and helpful. Hotel will exchange dollars for local money at good rate. Restaurant is clean and very good food.

We stayed a week while on a tour and transitioning into Costa Rica. The room we had was not the remodeled room and very small. We were tripping over our luggage to move around. The bathroom was tiny, toilet was cracked in three places and leaked, and when using the shower, water came oozing out onto the floor. The bed... More
