“Truly relaxing. Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

I'm sitting outside on the patio enjoying a nice glass of wine and listening to the post Costa Rica Cup celebrations (even after the loss). We are midway through our stay. The staff, especially Rebeca, are great. She has helped us navigate the public buses, arranged tours, and been truly hlepful. Today, we attempted to have some laundry done... a challenge on the weekend and with the quarter finals of the Cup. The staff made it happen! We are looking forward to our tours and a few more days of R&D here.

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

Stayed here with my partner for 2 nights we had been travelling Central America for 3 months this was a treat for us before we flew home! we got here on a Saturday evening after a long bus journey and was very tired my partner was sick and on medication so wen we got to our room and they were doing construction work and very noisy we were annoyed, we complained and the noise stopped we were offered a free meal when we were checking out which I thought was very good they made an effort to make up for it! Rooms are great comfy beds with net flex great wifi pool is lovely and food is very good shuttle to the airport 20 dollars half hour away I would recommend to stay here

Hotel was very quiet and clean - very good value for the price. The netflix access, free international phone calls, and smart TV was a bonus perk for us! We would definitely stay here again if we ever are back in Costa Rica.

If you're looking for a beautiful spot just a bit off the beaten path to begin or end your stay in Costa Rica, this is the place. Food and shuttle service to/from SJO is not included in the price of the rooms, so make sure to plan for that. The owner is around frequently, and is a super nice guy. The restaurant is pretty good too, if not a bit pricey, but you can always cook something simple in your room if you plan ahead, thanks to the fully stocked kitchenette. The beds and the bathrooms themselves are awesome.


I would definitely recommend this hotel to my family and friends in the future.

We are on our 6th day in Costa Rica and have 10 more. Hotel Luisiana has been far the best hotel stay thus far. Best rate for the quality of hotel. Beds and pillows are super comfortable. The cleanliness of the hotel was superb. The staff is nice and helpful.

The downfall of hotel is the location. As a first time visitor to Costa Rica it was difficult to find especially if you are driving at night. We got lost -for 2 hours- no GPS at the time- we bought one two days later. Best investment. With this said, bring your own GPS and buy the Costa Rica sd card. Our cost us $150 - Costa Rica ready and can be used in US.

We walked all around Santa Ana and took a public transport to downtown Santa Ana. Do not try to drive there. San Jose is congested with people and locals drive very fast, therefore looking for parking garages and trying to figure out where your going is not suggested. Paid approx. .80 cents one way pp.

Thank you Hotel Luisiana, we will definitely stay again now that we know where to find you. :)

Anytime we need to make a quick trip into the San Jose area - this is the best deal - super clean, quiet and safe! This was the first time we ate in their restaurant and although it was a bit chilly (due to the wines they keep on display) it was very good.

Room Tip: Although the standard room we stayed in was a very good room it was on the 3rd floor and a bit older...
