We had a wonderful two night stay at this well located hotel. It served as a good base from which to explore the city. When we arrived at the hotel we were warmly greeted and provied with a complimentary beverage - what a lovely way to start a visit . We enjoyed a long walk down Colon Avenue ( I thinK ) to a beautiful city park. There were two museums, a craft market about a block or so away with beautufl handicrafts made by local artisans-surprisingly most spoke English though more comfortable in Spanish. The area seemed very safe at night though hotel staff suggest guests not have any jewelry visible at night , a tip I appreciated. You will also notice even during the day that almost every store has security guards . There are a slew of restaurants within a block or so walk in almost any direction. We particularly enjoyed El Balcon de Europa.
The hotel generously provided special treats to help us celebrate my husband's birthday.
The room was very lovely and the bathroom was spa like such a treat . All of the staff we interacted with was helpful most were bilingual. This was a great place to start our Costa Ricn adventure.
