“A pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2009

We stayed here for a number of weeks and the self-catering apartments were just what we needed. Although very basic they were kept clean and generally had what we needed to get by.
The outdoor swimming pool was very cold and didn't have any furniture with which to sunbath but in honesty we never found the weather in San Jose good enough to take the sun!
Wireless internet was provided free of charge and more often than not, was available in the rooms, though on occasion we would go a number of days with no access at all.
Reception staff were at times unhelpful but the cleaning staff were very friendly and soon got used to our habits and time keeping and worked around us. They were a pleasure to speak to and did a thorough job.
Location was not ideal but a taxi could be easily found and it was only a short trip into the centre of San Jose. A supermarket was situated within walking distance at the end of the road and opened long hours and a pharmacy and convenience store among others were across the road.
Although this hotel was was basic they were undergoing changes during our stay and I imagine these will have improved it overall.

I came to do buisness in Costa Rica. My budget was a bit limited but I couldn't compromise the location.
You get what you pay for - nice hotel, modest and worth every Penny.
I will be back!!!!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2008

We were very impressed by this website. On the website, the place lookes nice and clean, but the only nice areas are what is shown on the website. We arrived here intending to stay a week, but after checking in late on our arrival date, we stayed one night and couldn't wait to leave. The room smelled like sewer and was dirty, and there were dead cockroaches in the corners. Breakfast was lousy, and it was in a bad area of town. Don't be fooled by the website. Don't stay here!
