We spent two nights at this hotel and were very satisfied with the accommodations for the price. We felt safe and secure at all times. They have a guard on duty all night which added to our piece of mind. We had a room with a small kitchen. It was very clean and quite spacious as well. We never say any bugs in or around the room. The bed and linens were extremely comfortable allowing me to sleep better here than I do at home. The bathroom was also very nice. The view from the hotel is nothing special, but that isn't why you stay here. the included breakfast quite mediocre but it came with the room. We never ate here for any lunch of suppers so we can't speak to those meals.
The hotel wasn't too difficult to find as we arrived at night from the San Jose Airport. The signage in Costa Rica is terrible, so you really really have to watch for the Santa Ana turn off of the main highway!!! We made it but could have easily missed it. It takes about 20-30 minutes to get here. Ivan and his staff turned us on to a great tour guide named Nella who took us up to the Poas volcano and even helped us get a better rental car ***stay away from the Suziki Jimny!!!*** Also, because we were so happy with this hotel, we asked Ivan and his wife if they could recommend other Italian run hotels in the country for us to stay at on our trip as we weren't booked anywhere else. They not only steered us to a great part of the country we were going to skip (the Nicoya Peninsula) but they made the bookings for us too. We can't thank them enough for turning us on to Otro Lado in Santa Teresa.
All in all, if you plan to spend any time in or around San Jose, this is a great place to stay and if I went back to Costa Rica I would definitely find myself at Hotel Luisiana again.
