Hotel Autentico has two levels of room. One is for budget travellers, especially those on a tour, and a higher class with better rooms. We were on a tour, and our room was basic and clean with good beds, hot water, and a good night's sleep. The staff are quite friendly and appreciative of travelers who attempt to use Spanish,...

A very good well run hotel.with no frills just basics but everything you could wish for if passing through San Jose for a day or two. Clean decent size rooms, hairdryer, coffee machine, good comfy beds, strong warm shower. Near enough to airport and near enough to town centre but not too close to either.

Stayed here twice last month (Feb 15) just before and after a tour of Costa Rica. The hotel was about 20 minutes from airport (we arrived at 23.00 and left at 04.00 so no traffic issues) Lovely base and currently being upgraded. We stayed 3 nights before the tour and one night after. We actually got the same room on... More

Hotel Autentico, San Jose Costa Rica We stayed a total of three nights. Started and ended a group tour here. Not a large hotel, but clean and up to date. Rooms have air conditioning units, never got them to do more than be a fan, although we really didn't them. Beds were comfortable and showers had good water pressure and... More

The hotel was not exactly in the center of San Jose but a few minutes out of the main city. This I did not mind because there was a supermarket walking distance. The pool was very nice and medium sized. The rooms were comfortable and moderate with hot water considering other hotels have complicated procedures to get hot water. My... More

The hotel was okay. The rooms were fine though I never figured out how to reach the ceiling fan that had a pull chain designed for very tall people. The shower had hot water which was a nice treat as other places I stayed in Costa Rica required one to turn on an electric heater to heat the water as... More

We stayed here twice in January . The rooms are simple but clean and spacious. The bathroom is adequate with a good supply of hot water. The breakfast was really good on one day and less good on two other mornings. The buffet evening meal was tasty and well prepared. There is a lovely well kept garden and small pool

I stayed here in February 2015 for two nights and paid 66 USD for a large room. Especially if you are 2-3 people it's great value for money. Only 20 min drive from airport and 20 min walk to city centre. Breakfast and dinner buffets are limited in choice but very good. Friendly staff. WiFi in room. Would recommend to... More

This Hotel is a busy hotel only for 1 or 2 night. Hotel is niche far from airport and not far from the center with shops and restaurants. A supermarket is just around the corner. Rooms in the hotel mostly noisy. Pool is nice and quiet. Breakfast is expensive and quality not acceptable for the price. Dinner and lunch also... More
