We arrived at the hotel with the help of a taxi due to the fact no one knew the location. When arriving, the hotel was bared up similar to a prison & had one tiny lobby. We were sure we didn't have it right by the look of the pictures on Trip advisor. But it was right. Although the front... More

I stood two days, never have I stayed anywhere where the staff was so helpful. Breakfast is brought to your room with friendly smiles. When I needed help finding a local store, the front desk attendant and the owner went above and beyond. He drove me to the store and back and was so ever humble. I would recommend this... More

We headed towards San Jose towards the end of our trip having no idea where to stay. Having stayed in hostels most of the trip, we decided to treat ourselves to a nicer hotel. We ran into this beauty by chance and we are so glad we did! The price was great, the staff was amazing and the hotel room... More

Located between the airport and city centre, nothing of interest to walk too. Taxi needed to get to down town where the restaurants and museums are. Staff were not customer service oriented...or very friendly.

I spent two nights at Hotel Plaza Real. One at the beginning of my tour of Costa Rica and again at the end. I would not recommend this hotel. Let me first say that I am not a picky traveller and by no means have unrealistic standards. But when I leave a beautiful hotel with pool, restaurants, spa, beautiful grounds... More

The Plaza Real was a very good choice for us ! We stayed here for 2 nights and we really enjoyed everything about this place. The rooms were nice and clean and offered all the amenities you would need for a comfortable stay. Service was also very good, especially breakfast that had a great variety of fresh fruit and warm...

Our family began and ended a month long trip in Costa Rica at the Hotel Plaza Real. Our experience was that the location was safe, central to shopping, clean, and reasonably priced. We found the area around the hotel to be reasonably quiet and secure. Timely shuttle service to/from airport was available, with secure parking for our rental car and... More

Pretty good hotel if you are staying for one or two nights. Front desk was very nice, interior very comfortable. Only complaints would be that it is a little far from the center of town and the bed is pretty hard, but otherwise very solid. Would recommend.
