“Best Value in San Jose, CR”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2011

This hotel has hotel rooms and apartments to accomodate any length of stay. The hotel offers free transportation from the airport through Interbus, which will save you about $10 per person. It's about 1/2 block from Parque La Sabana, easy walking distance to the Museo de Costaricense Arte and about a $3 cab ride to downtown (recommended over walking the mile due to traffic). It's also near restaurants and convenience stores.

The staff was incredibly welcoming, with an offer of fresh orange juice, coffee or water (go for the juice!), and truly wanted to make our stay pleasureable. They can arrange for car rentals, Interbus transportation, or tours, as you wish. Security is excellent and the entire place is clean and beautifully landscaped.

Since most of the reason to go to Costa Rica is for the animals, we only spent one night upon arrival. I'll definitely book there again for a first and last night in CR.

The check-in staff is bi-lingual, but some of the other staff is solely Spanish speaking. So, brush up on your college Spanish and enjoy!

Comfort got a 4 because the beds are a little firm. Fine for me, but others may prefer soft.

Pros: clean rooms, cable TV, free wifi, sauna, courteous staff ( got us some juice as soon as we walked in). Absolutely loved the airport interbus service that was free. AC and fan n room.

Cons: room a little smaller. Got the standard room with 1 queen for $60 per night low season.

Location: walking distance to public bus stop in front of Burger king. Bus goes straight to downtown for 160 colones. Also across from park la sabana. Easy to get around.

Good location, near downtown, with a lot of restaurants nearby.
The rooms are spacious and the kitchen correctly furnished.
The common spaces (swimming pool area, lobby, restaurant for breakfast) are nice.
The staff is very helpful and nice.

We are back a La Sabana Aprtotel for a 3rd time to have dental work done, this is the best hotel in the area. The staff treat you as if this is a 5 star hotel. It is so comfortable and feels like home away from home, The small but well equipt kitchen is a bonus. The pool area is so relaxing you don't feel like you are in the middle of a busy city. The breakfast is more than enough to kick start your day. There is coffee permantely available in the lobby. We love it here and will be back again and again and again when visiting San Jose.

La Sabana is a good hotel to stay if you arrive at San José airport. The hotel is small and the staff is very friendly. The breakfast is fresh and tastes good. There is a small swimming pool. The city centre of San José is on a walking distance. 'This hotel is perfect as a short stay place after/before your flight.
