The Hotel Costa Rica Morazan is centrally located in downtown San Jose and has a very friendly and helpful staff. Priced in the mid-range economy class, the rooms are definitely a bargain provided one can put up with a slight mildew scent caused by antiquated carpet. But the rooms are clean and comfortable. There is a hotel bar that is... More

This is my third stay at the Morazan and I still believe its one of the better values downtown. The price has gone up appreciably since my last stay a few years ago but that's typical of everything in San Jose. The rooms are still quite good. The bed is very low but was very comfortable with nice sheets and... More

If you must stay in San Jose, Costa Rica, then this is a nice hotel...close to all the action and good restaurants, shopping and a pharmacy all close. You will not be bother by hookers here but if that is on your menu you can crawl to the Hotel Del Rey....

This is an update to prior review. I was told they have new owners. They are remodeling and have improved the look of the restaurant. My room hadn't changed much. The inside rooms that used to be quiet are now somewhat noisy due to the music from adjacent Key Largo. They now charge $3.00 / day for a key to... More

I had made reservations at the Morazán hotel through Hotels.com. When I reached the hotel and tried to check in the room. The receptionist said that she had no information on my reservation even after I'd given her my confirmation number. A few moments later a portly gentleman came to assist the receptionist. He was dirty and smelled but claimed... More

This is the bare essential hotel for the location. Cheap, close to everything. Nothing to write home about. Noisy and dirty. I don't think anyone will confuse this place with the ritz carlton any time soon.

I've stayed here many times beginning when it was the Hotel Amstel and had a really good restaurant. The casino has replaced the restaurant. The new bar / restaurant on the second floor is ok for coffee and breakfast. When the music is blasting Friday and Saturday night rooms on the second floor will be noisy. They seem to have... More
