We were a little concerned as our cab drove into the area--however once we entered the hotel we were immediately put at easy because of the very friendly/professional service/attention we received. My only issue is the lack of local eating establishments close to the hotel--we had to walk about 6 blocks away to find any place to eat--& that was... More

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights before my tour and then 1 night after the tour. The building is like a fortress with wrought iron gates and electric gate openers etc. but it seems like this is common for that district of San Jose. When I questioned the staff about the security, they emphatically insisted that the area... More

We stayed there three nights and were mostly out during the days sightseeing. A nice gentleman Alberto picked us up from the airport and brought us to our room. The outside of the hotel is not very impressive and the location is not near any attractions; but everyone inside is warm, friendly and very accommodating. We had a room on... More

arrived as part of a peregrine tour. the hotel is in an industrial area with nothing around it and a 30 minute taxi ride to San Jose city centre. Place looks like a prison with high steel bars all around it. Rooms were ok but no hot water for two of four nights. Staff were friendly enough but I wouldn't... More

I stayed one night at the start and end of an Intrepid tour. The exterior of the hotel is imposing and severe, with gates around the building. It's also set in an industrial location and close to a noisy main road. But, the welcome was warm, and all the staff are friendly, helpful and available 24 hours. The rooms are... More

We left SJO at about 5:30 AM on Friday after finding out our flight was canceled, and a helpful taxi driver suggested we try this hotel as we didn't have anyplace to go. We get there at 6AM, and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. They only had 1 room left, a very nice (and huge) 2 bedroom suite,... More

The hotel was a short 10 minute drive from SJO and it is located in a quiet neighborhood. It's a perfect locale for late night arrivals or early morning departures. There were a few restaurants within 3-4 blocks.

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
