Stayed here for 5 nights recently on a business trip to San Jose. The hotel is situated right in the middle of the city and opens onto the pedestrian street. The cost from the airport was US$30 each way.
My room was fine but there was no view, in fact the windows were frosted up so that was a bit of a drawback. Otherwise, the room was very comfortable as was the bed.
The staff were extremely courteous and helpful at all times and helpful booking tours and taxis and changing money. I would say that parking is not very good at the hotel as the space is extremely limited.
I ate in the lobby/restaurant many times during my stay and the food was very good as was the breakfast. I ate at El Patio restaurant right across the street a few times and this was fine also.
I might consider a more modern location slightly out of the centre next time but this hotel definitely had a lot of character and I could not find much to deter me from staying there again.
