“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica, since it is close to the airport. After staying in hostels all week, this hotel was a nice treat! It was very clean and stylish, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was large and modern. This hotel is not easy to find, but once we found it, we were glad we did. The Italian food in the restaurant was absolutely delicious and was a nice change after eating rice and beans all week. The breakfast was also good. The pool looked nice, but we didn't have time to use it. Would definitely recommend for days coming to/from the san jose airport.

Nice place. Clean rooms, modern conveniences (smart TV, 2 ply toilet paper, AC), very nice staff. Weird location, inside a neighborhood, between a warehouse and houses. Great price but be sure that when budgeting to account for $20 taxi into the city.

I only stay for two days but it was a great choice. Inexpensive, beautiful and with great service. Keep in mind that is a little bit far from the center of the city in a more suburban area but this also makes it very peaceful. Also you will have to cover the fee for the airport shuttle.

Nice set up. I really liked it but the insects were too much. I went to front and all they did was spray the room, which only made the bugs come out to die on the bed and on my luggage. Got another room that also had bugs, the saturated the room which smelled like raid and the bugs were still there. After switching twice and both rooms were infested. I just left and stayed at another hotel.

Room Tip: Request they spray your room for bugs before you get there. Switched rooms twice and both had bugs.

For the most part it was a very pleasant stay at the hotel. My biggest issue is that they have useless computers in the rooms. A 11 year old computer with today's technology requirements is not usable. I suggest throwing them away and getting something new. Also I was under the impression that we had free breakfast, my fault for not reading, but I wish they had told me up front because I would have made breakfast in room.

Room Tip: Contact hotel to see which rooms are on first floor. My partner has heart issues and we were lucky...

We stayed for 12 days. The staff was very friendly. The room was small but very clean. It was a great deal. You need to rent a car if you stay here or plan on going on a few day tours as the location is somewhat secluded. There is construction going on behind the hotel and the noise is bearable, but there is noise. Everyone spoke English and they were very hospitable. In America, this place would be labeled a motel, not a hotel by definition as the access to the rooms were from the outside. The location is in a nice part of town, Santa Ana. A rental car is a must.

Room Tip: If you stay here, request not be in rooms 1, 2, 3, or 4 as the entrance to your room is facing the p...
