I stayed here for six nights as part of my adventure tour package with Serendipity Tours. The hotel has a very friendly staff. The rooms are nothing special, but were clean and comfortable. Housekeeping always did a great job and folded the towel into some sort of neat shape every day. There is a small TV in the room with a few English channels and several Spanish ones. There was no air conditioning, but I never felt it was needed. There is a fan attached to the wall. Daily breakfast is included. You can choose from either a typical Costa Rican breakfast of eggs, rice, beans, fried plantains, and tortillas or an American one of eggs, bacon, fruit, and toast. The hotel also serves dinner, but all I ever tried was a bocadilla which was quite good. They also have a specialty drink that is set on fire and poured between two gravy boats while you throw cinnamon at it. Very fun! The only real negative is that the sink in the bathroom did not have hot water. The shower, however, did have hot water. The hotel is in the heart of the city and only a couple blocks from the town square. There is an excellent restaurant a few doors away serving a lot of great Costa Rican food. (Walk out of the hotel and turn right.) There is also an internet cafe right next door.
