I have stayed at this property now for the 3rd year in a row and love staying here! The owner and staff are very helpful with any of your needs including booking trips around Costa Rica. The location
of the hotel is pretty good with several nice parks close by including a nice zoo. The main tourist
drag is just a few blocks away where you will find lots of nice places to eat. The best place to get the most for your dollar for Colonies is the national bank just one block away. There is a nice large grocery store nearby. Just ask staff how to get there. Hotel has a weight room that is sufficient to get a decent workout in. I also run and find going to one of the nearby parks your best bet as traffic is sometimes bad. The hotel has a nice small pool and a hot tub. The rooms
don't have A/C but it is not necessary as the weather is not hot in San Jose and there are overhead fans in all rooms. The free breakfast is really good here from 7-9am. I will continue to come back to this place anytime I stay in San Jose!
