My wife and I had the pleasure of staying the night at Hotel Son Carlos. We had a stop over between Antonio Manuel and LA Fortuna. The hotel is historic as a former presidential residence and is located in a central part of San Jose.The staff was helpful in assisting us to book a rental car over the Thanksgiving holiday and offered us a free drink from the bar upon arrival.The included breakfast was wonderful. Our room was very spacious, had a delightful bathroom and was comfortable. The hotel also has a few indoor/outdoor sections where the weather and birds meet beautiful sculptures, artwork and nooks to enjoy Costa Rican coffee. Additionally, there is a lovely gift shop supplied only by local artists and artisans. My wife and I took a recommendation from a friend that is from San Jose to stay at Hotel Don Carlos and we are very glad we did.
