We have stayed at the Don at least a half dozen times and when friends from out of the country go to San Jose this is where we recommend they stay. The location is excellent, the ambience is Costa Rican and the service is outstanding. The amazing art collection and comfortable lobby areas make this a destination in and of itself. It is an older building, so if you want a brand new corporate chain hotel stay elsewhere, but it will be your loss. You can rely on the gentlemen at the front desk for solid restaurant recommendations , directions and they can even tell you the best place to bumpy what you are looking for. All of the staff is friendly and helpful. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
