“Little Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We travel to San Jose at least once a month to buy supplies. We are so happy to have found this hotel. It is perfectly located for our needs.
The hotel is charrming. The rooms spacious and beautifully decorated. Our room had a lovely deep bath to relax in. Each room has a little sitting area on the large wrap around porch. The bed was luxurious. Everything was so clean. The staff polite, friendly and helpful.
The only thing I thought could be improved is the landscaping around the pool. I am sure this is a work in progress.
I usually dread our monthly jaunts to the big city but I am already looking forward to our next trip even though we just got home today!

I have traveled all over the world and have stayed in many many hotels, this hotel Luisiana has been the BEST for my money. It is very hard to find (thank God I know spanish) the signs were very small & hard to find but well worth it when we did find it. The people at reception are the greatest they do everything to make your stay wonderful. They made arrangements for all of our tours (& they were fantastic river rafting was the best!). The room was very roomy but the bed was the best better than the one I sleep at home. Had free internet with a free apple computer in each room (so I didn't need to take my laptop) Had free calls to the US so I could call home free. TV was the greatest with free netflex & over 30 channels to watch. Overall it was just awesome & the price was perfect. Will definitely stay there again in the future.

Room Tip: renting a car is a good idea the hotel has a lock up parking area that was awesome

My husband and I flew into San Jose airport and spent the first night at this hotel due to its close location to the airport. It was extremely affordable and very clean. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. I will use this hotel again in the future.

20 minutes to the airport in a nice neighborhood. Close to lots of places to eat. Nice pool and nice rooms. I would definitely stay here again. The dinner was included and pretty good. Each room has a little table on the balcony to relax

My husband, 12 year old daughter and I stayed at Hotel Luisiana during the first and last night of our vacation in Costa Rica. The rates are very affordable and the room was spacious and clean. The front desk staff Ronald was very kind and accommodating as were the other staff we met. We had a wonderful dinner in the hotel restaurant the first night. The pumpkin ravioli in mushroom sauce was delicious. Breakfast the next morning was also great and came with fresh cut watermelon and pineapple. The coffee was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others looking for good value and good service. The beds were very comfortable as well.

This hotel is a 20-minute cab ride from the San Jose airport and offers the comfort and safety of being so.

The hotel and grounds are architecturally beautiful, designed by its Italian owner. Wi-fi and phone calls to the US are free.

Was here in March 2013 and I absolutely loved staying at the Hotel Louisiana; it's location was very convenient for taking the bus to the Multi Plaza or to downtown San Jose; it was just as nice to be in the Santa Ana area and to be able to walk to the grocery store or a nice restaurant; the rooms at the Hotel Louisiana were very clean and the beds were comfortable; the staff were very friendly and helpful; was also a real bonus to have HOT showers - what a treat; AND, to have free Netflix AND free international calls; the pool area was very pleasant and even though it was not heated, it warmed up nicely on a hot day which made a dip very refreshing; my favourite part; however, was relaxing on the big covered veranda with the warm breeze and listening to the Cicadas in the evenings; my only disappointment was that there was no Costa Rican breakfast fare; I didn't really care for any of the breakfast items but did enjoy the Italian dinner which was very good; a clothes line in the shower, hooks for hanging towels in the bathroom and a few kitchen items like more bowls, cutlery and cups, instead of demi-tasse cups with no cappuccino maker, would have made the kitchen a little more functional; have been to Costa Rica 3 times for dental work and always stayed right in San Jose; staying at the Hotel Louisiana made this 3rd trip a lot more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Stay in the side with the veranda facing the pool
