“Great Appart-Hotel in the heart of San Jose!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2010

My friend and I arrived at night after a long 4 hour drive from Guanacaste to this great little hotel in the heart of San Jose. It is located very close to down town San Jose and near Savanna Park.

The appart-hotel has a total of 22 rooms or suites. The one that we are staying in is a suite with a separate room with a double bed and a plasma TV, a kitchenette and a very clean bathroom. There is Wifi internet service that has good speed and the bedroom is equipped with A/C. Also, one of the advantages of this hotel is that it has a secured parking, so if you travel by car you do not have to worry about it at night.

In the morning, we had a nice Tico breakfast at the hotel as it is included in the nightly rate. Gallo Pinto (rice, black beans, cilantro), eggs, fresh fruits, waffles, fresh juice and coffee.

I highly recommend this hotel as it has a great price value ratio, location and the staff is nice and friendly.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2009

Small hotel in the heart of San Jose. Clean rooms with many amentities, full kitchens, baths, and individual bedrooms for a little privacy from the kids.
Don't miss the complimentary breakfast. Tipical Tico fare that varies each day. Eggs, Waffles, Gallo de Pinto (black beans, rice, and cilantro), fried cheese, fresh papaya, fresh pinapple, juices, and coffee. You can't ask for much more.
Great friendly staff that was Extremely accomodating for my wife and children. They even speak English.

Great for price concious extended stays and medical vaca's in downtown San Jose.

Close walking distance to numerous dentists, hospital, pharmacy and local shopping.

One and two bedroom units, good typical Tico breakfast included. Prices "float" downward for longer stays so negotiate in advance. Parking right there w/ 24 hr. watchman. Very clean/great staff so leave these folks a smile w/ gracias and a couple bucks per day they'll treat you like gold. Living room areas are a bit sparse, but all in all this a hugely roomier optione then a hotel and having an equipped kitchen is great.

Bring along a few condiments. coffee, etc. and you're practically homesteading in San Jose. There's a full food market a few blocks away on Paseo Colon.
