We stayed here for 1 night during a layover. Nice hotel. Had everything you needed! The room was big, and clean. They also had 24hr room service and a 24hour restaurant/casino attached to the hotel, which was nice. The staff were very friendly as well.

(Note that this is a 3 or 4 star hotel. The rating is based on this fact. If you want a 5 star hotel, stay at a 5 star hotel instead of here.) We stayed here two nights at the beginning and end of a trip to Costa Rica. This is a great all around hotel. The location in downtown... More

Rule #1 (someone should have told me), do not exchange dollars at the airport, do it in hotel or bank! - got $471 for $1, should have gotten $571. Good hotel if you want to be in the heart of the city, although you can find better sections in San Jose, good price/ performance indeed!

My wife and I just spent 8 days at this hotel. We booked our trip with tours thru a travel agent. After looking extensively at the different hotel options, we choose this one. The main selling point was it's location and that did not dissapoint. We live in Miami Beach and this hotel is 2 blocks from San Jose's version... More

There aren't too many hotels that are up to international standards in downtown San Jose. Like many other reviewers have commented, this is very similar to a Sleep Inn In the United States. There are no bellmen to help you bring your luggage to your room (you bring it yourself on a trolley). There is a free breakfast (with some... More

Very nice, clean and quite hotel. Next to downtown San Jose, walking distance from shop and restaurants. The breakfast was one of the best we had in Costa Rica. They also have good rate for exchange money.

What a surprise!! Downtown hotel with great service! Great service, nice and big rooms (mine was in the third floor and looking the park across street). They have a breakfast (not excellent but good enough to start the day). The minibar is empty so you can stuff whatever you like in them. They have a microwave oven in every room.... More

We stayed here on our first night in Costa Rica after flying in. We choose it for the free airport shuttle and breakfast. We waited for a while at the airport and the shuttle never showed up. With no cell phone we had no way to call the hotel. The guy running the taxis eventually asked us what we were... More

Good location in center of town. Not a great place for kids though due to the location in center of town (Holiday Inn across the street better for families). Check in was fine, room was ok. Standard king with large bathroom. Furniture is nearing replacement time but for the price ok. I booked this room because it offered a free... More
