Dear guest
Thank you for staying at our Hotel and writing a comment about this experience. We are very pleased to see that you like our Hotel even that we have this really folklorique old train passing by. I guess it has to be part of the Towns busy life!

Hope to welcome you again in our house.

Kind regards

Jordan, Director and his staff

We stayed here with friends in the end of March 2013. I have to say that we really enjoyed it - the room was clean and comfortable. I also liked the fact that they provided free wireless internet in the entire hotel. In general, it offers a very good value for money and I felt safe which I think is very important in San Jose. I would definitely recommend the hotel. Perfect place to start your Costa Rica Tour!

Stayed here twice. Once before a tour, and then again on return. First time we stayed on the 3rd floor and had a balcony, which made the room very pleasant. Second time we stayed in a room on the 2nd floor with no windows, which made the room less enjoyable. Nevertheless, the rooms were spotless. The bathrooms were clean, with hot water. The restaurant served excellent food, which was well priced. The staff were friendly. But the train that travels alongside the back of the hotel is noisy. It isnt a problem from about 11pm to 6am, but every blast from that hooter when it does pass by will make you jump.

We stayed for two days at the Fleur de Lys while being in San Jose. We were warmly welcomed and felt on holidays from the first moment on. The entire staff, from receptionists to waiters and housekeeping was very friendly and courteous! It didn't matter if it was about ordering a taxi or getting general information about the city, the hotel's receptionists were always there to help us. Breakfast was excellent, fresh fruit, the typical "Gallo Pinto" and Costa Rican Coffee were exactly what we needed before starting our day. The room was nice and the bathroom spacious. An excellent hotel if you want to stay in San Jose for a few days and be close to the city center.

With my honey, we stayed here for 1 night at the start of our trip round Costa Rica.
We found this hotel not up to standard it was dirty and the bathrooms smelled of...Ouf ouf.
The beds weren't comfortable, and my main complaint is that some rooms had no outside window.
The food at breakfast time was dreadfull and if you did not get there early no food was left and what was left was cold. The food in the evening was better but very expensive.
We payed a lot of money for this hotel and expected better...

I'm a longterm guest at the Hotel Fleur de Lys, having been here since mid-January 2013. Really, it's a great place to stay! Total quality service, with excellent employees, a beautifully remodeled mansion, great food in the restaurant and located in central SanJose, for easy transportation. The owner, has done a great job in restoring the wooden finishes, inside the hotel. The manager, Jordan, will do anything he can to make your time here more comfortable.
I love the buffet breakfest and watching futbol in the small bar(closes at 10 PM).
It's rated 3 stars, but really, it's atleast 4 stars.

This place is funky and may not have the shine of a polished hotel, but the staff are superb, and the place is clean and honest. The complimentary breakfast is wonderful, fresh and generous with offerings of fresh fruit, traditional Tico rice and beans and eggs done upscale level, plus yogurt, many kinds of breakfast breads and jams, butter, and cheese.
The staff are very helpful and well mannered. They go all out to assist you with reservations and other necessary help.
There is a rather good restaurant with a Swiss chef who prepares great dishes and satisfying salads made with local and fresh ingredients. They open for dinner only.
The bar is well placed between outdoors and in, and makes for a great place to experience a drink while in the atmosphere of small neighborhood street in San Jose.
The rooms are comfortable and spacious. There are smaller rooms as well, and they are adequate for a good night's sleep.
Yes, and free internet service in the lobby is a very nice touch.

Room Tip: It gets really quiet in the rooms after the commute train had stopped service, which is after nine...
