My wife and I stayed there for one night. Its located directly in the centre of san jose. The rooms are nice and clean. All in all its a old hotel but OK if you stay one or two nights. We did not try the breakfast cause we left too early.

We stayed there as education consultants. When we entered the hotel our heart sunk! It is filthy, with air conditioning wires exposed to rain water. The room look more like a jail. Stay away! The location is UNSAFE!

We stayed in this hotel the last night of our honeymoon. It had been recommended highly by some people that we had met during our trip. Their standard room was very reasonable. About $45.00 and they said it included breakfast. We thought is sounded good. When we arrived there, the "famous" top floor bar was mysteriously closed for the evening,... More
