This would be a good hotel if the changed to a slit level air conditioner as I got little sleep due to the noisy and rattles from the in room air con. I also this it was an expensive hotel. Good free breakfast and lovely staff

Staying at the Hampton was a great first impression of Costa Rica. We waited for only about 5 minutes before shuttle picked us up right at the main airport exit. Rooms were very clean. Water was plenty hot. I was pleased to find out water is drinkable unlike Mexico. Breakfast was excellent. I have nothing but praise for this hotel.... More

I appreciated the extremely happy and professional staff. The room was so clean and accomodating that we were able to rest comfortably before our flight to the US.

This is a great hotel for your arrival or departure flights into San Jose. The staff is excellent and very helpful - most of them are able to converse in English. Their free nightly shuttle to an area restaurant row is great and their airport shuttle is very convenient. The hot, complimentary breakfast was one of the best I've ever... More

Location, location, location. Hotel is very nice and extremely close to the airport with free shuttle. You can also pay for your airport exit tax in the lobby.....a really benefit when you have a 6 AM flight. If you are looking for a hotel to stay in the night before you fly out, I would strongly recommend the Hampton.
