“Sooo beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This brand new hotel has everything. One of the best restaurant in town, an amazing pool-hot tub-gym area, great rooms and a large bathroom. The view by night is amazing, the beds are like heaven :-) staff is great and very helpful. We stayed 2 nights but we wish we had stayed à whole week. San josè has a lot to offer and downtown is charming. A little bit far from the hearth of SJ but hotel is so great, worth the walk. Just beware after 5h30, some area of SJ can be dangerous.

I go to San Jose frequently for business and have stayed at a variety of hotels there. Since discovering this spot, I can guarantee I won't stay anywhere else but here in the future.

New, modern and comfortable, this Radisson meets all of our desires at an excellent price. We had a large room with an incredible view of the city (ask for higher floors, north-facing if possible). Huge king-sized bed with plush pillow, big flat screen TV, mini-fridge, coffee maker with Britt coffee, the works. Super clean!

The rooms come with buffet breakfast, which was simple but delicious. We stayed here two separate nights and the buffet selection was different, which we loved. Chill dining area playing classic music videos from VH1. We ordered a burger to room service and it was perfectly cooked and well-priced.

Few blocks walk from Paseo Colon (the main drag in San Jose downtown), which takes you to restaurants, shopping, car rentals, gas, banks, etc. I read some complaints about the proximity to the "centre", but it all depends on what you intend to do. Cabs are VERY cheap and plentiful. The neighborhood around the hotel is safe. You'll know it when you wander into an unsafe part of town.

Great thrift shop nearby, and if you're looking for nightlife, Vertigo is dangerously close!

Scored a last minute booking for only $70 USD, but the going rate is $99 and worth it!

Room Tip: Higher, north-facing floors have the best view!

Really really love this hotel. I was a Peace Corps volunteer in CR 15 years ago and still go back 1-2 times a year. Usually I only stay in a San Jose the last couple of nights when I'm back from my Peace Corps town until I fly back to the US. Over the years I've tried a few different hotels. Most that have had good reviews on TA have been houses converted to hotels. I wanted to try the Park Inn because I figured it would be quieter since it was built as a hotel and won't have thin walls like the houses who had been converted. It was amazing. Great location. 15 minute safe walk to the heart of San Jose but even where the hotel is you are in the center of San Jose. 3 blocks from one of the big landmarks in San Jose - Pizza Hut on Paseo Colon :) . There were taxis outside almost anytime I came in/left. It cost 1000 colones to go to the central park one time and 1500 another with more traffic (between $2-3) in case you don't feel like walking. The hotel was colorful, well decorated, environmentally friendly (lights are off a lot and turn on when they sense motion). Staff was helpful, friendly but not overly so. Just what you need. Breakfast was good. Eggs, meat option, gallo pinto, a few types of cut fruit, some bread/pastries. I saw someone with an omelet so I assume they make them for you. I didn't care, I like what they had out. The room was great (on its own but even more so compared to other hotels in San Jose). I'm a light sleeper so I worry if I'll be too hot or if a hotel will be too noisy. The a/c was AMAZING. Got nice and chilly and they had actual real heavy duvets on the beds (not the standard Costa Rica bed coverings). Best of all, they had a setting on the a/c unit where you could have a constant fan on - and there were multiple settings (high - lo). I slept amazing. I was in 1204 (12th floor is top floor) and, as others recommended, looked out onto the mountains/city. Great view but really you don't look out the window too much so I wouldn't let being on the other side of the building worry you. The gym was more than decent. I'd say this hotel is akin to a Courtyard in the US. I recommend it for anyone but especially if you are doing business in CR, this would be a super hotel. Nice restaurant/room service (prices were reasonable), convenience stores/restaurants nearby for a quick walk to clean your mind and a great desk in the room. Free wifi. Trying to remember other great points - oh! The shower was wonderful. Costa Rica tends to have their shower heads be lower. This one was very high, huge rain shower head, wonderfully hot water...loved it. There is an in-room safe and a nice little fridge which is helpful. There is a grocery store 3 blocks away (next to Pizza Hut) in case you want to bring snacks/drinks back to the room or buy coffee for souvenirs. For the price (rate varied from night to night but was within $15-20/night of what one of the cheaper hotels I usually stay at was) it was so worth it. I have found my go-to hotel in San Jose. So glad they opened.

Room Tip: Nothing special to recommend with this hotel since they have the constant fan on the a/c to help you...

I stayed at this hotel for one night upon arriving in Costa Rica and another night prior to departing the country and both experiences were FANTASTIC! The hotel is brand new and not well known by many taxi drivers, so travel from the airport to the hotel was slightly problematic; however, upon arriving, all of my concerns were whisked away! My room was bright and beautifully decorated. For both of my stays, I had a view of the city that was just UNREAL! The bed was oh so comfortable and the complimentary breakfast on the first floor was DELICIOUS! Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Costa Rica; however, I will say that any visit to this BEAUTIFUL country MUST include PLENTY of time AWAY from San Jose. Unfortunately, the city does NOT do the country justice.

We stayed here on our last night in costa rica. Very modern hotel with everything you need. We got a huge room with huge bathroom (did we get an upgrade without knowing it?). Nice breakfast. We just used it as a last stop before taking the bus to the airport so for us the location wasnt that very important. Nice italian-pizza restaurant closeby.

This was a way point for our travels in Costa Rica. It's a older hotel made of concrete. Not that that's a bad thing. It was really clean both in the rooms and all the public areas. There seems to be some plumbing issues in that the toilets barely flushed and the showers barely drained. We stayed in 3 different rooms and these problems were the same in all.
It's within walking distance to the central market area which is a place where there is a lot of "Costa Rican" shopping. Not touristy at all. Typical market stores
The food at the hotel was good enough but walk a few blocks north and get food at El Pueblo, another market area. There a few better restaurants that are better priced as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the upper levels on the west side of the hotel
