“Great Hotel, with fantastic service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I have stayed at Hotel KC San Jose Colaye four times in the last 2 years. That should tell anyone who reads these a lot. The rooms are very clean. The staff extremely helpful. Miquel Molina has always been professional and helpful with suggestions. My Spanish is very bad. The front desk staff ( Karla, Miquel, Gerald, and Lester ) all speak English. I would suggest this Hotel to anyone. I love the location, within walking distance to many places to eat. Also close to a convenience store. Sabana Sur is the best area in San Jose!!

On this trip my fiance and I traveled to CR from diffrent locations( usa & afghanistan) . I was delayed for 4 days.During this time the hotel staff was very helpful, esspecially Miguel Molina .He gave her direction to grocery stores & pharmacy, close and good places to eat , exchanged money and explained not go out at night by herself . Watched the superbowl in the lobby with her .She is not much of a world traveler and I tend to drag her all over the globe with me. It was a relief to know she was in good hands with the hotel staff . The staff was very helpful booking tours, travel and reservations at other locations.The rooms and the hotel was very clean and well maintained . Breahfast was very good .A good place to stay in San Jose. Looking forward to going back someday.

Our travel agent booked us here for the night we arrived so we didn't have to risk driving at night to Manuel Antonio. It wasn't that it was too hard to find the street it was located on, it was impossible to actually see the sign of the hotel from street. They need to light it better or use bigger sized letters on their signage. The beds were really stiff, which is the only other negative. The pool was refreshing and the service great. Breakfast was 7 out of 10.

Excellent location, near to downtown and all commercial areas. Good food, comfortable rooms, clean, wifi, parking lot with guard. I think I received what I paid for. I recommend this hotel in your trip to C.R.

We were just guests of the Hotel Colaye. We stayed one night at the beginning of our vacation and two nights at the end. It was booked for us through an EF Tour program (educational school tours). It is definitely not a hotel I would have booked personally but it did provide fine accomodations for our stay. Issues that we had included no hot water one evening when we needed to shower. Although WIFI is free it was not available in our room, it did work just outside the door though. There was mildew and mold on the ceiling of our bathroom. Not all rooms have A/C, there are ceiling fans in the non A/C rooms but our first night was very warm and the ceiling fan offered no relief. There is a snack bar available all day that served lattes, snacks and meals. That was nice to have. Front desk staff was very helpful and easy to work with. One major warning I would issue is that you inquire about tour groups. There were two groups while we were there - about 40 students each - and I did hear a guest complaining about all the noise. 80 high schoolers - you can imagine!
