We spent two nights at the start of our holiday then one night at the end.
This is the oldest hotel in the heart of the city, amid the hustle and bustle of San Jose.
It has an amazing old colonial atmosphere in the foyer with a Grand piano or clarinet being played during the evenings.
Our room overlooked the square and was classed as superior. It was very average, had old metal framed windows which did not close properly, and let the local traffic noise in.
Breakfast was good, well presented and served in a splended room on th 5th floor.
On our return 8 nights later we were shown to a standard room by mistake, Oh dear, what a difference. Small, dark and not for me. We were soon taken back to a "Superior" some would say average standard room which was fine but still had the window problem.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
