The parking is limited and pretty steep. The hotel is okay and the staff is nice. The view is beautiful! The rooms in the hotel are simple but fine, the beds are comfortable. The breakfast was okay, the juice wasn’t fresh.

One star is for the beautiful views of the city and mountains. One star is for the size of the rooms and bathrooms. One star is for the produce market a 60 second walk from the hotel. Overall, it was dingy, with bedding that was worn, including holes and stains, and overall it needed a good cleaning. The breakfast wasn’t great, though I commend the woman who was taking orders and making things alone. At times it felt like we were the only people at the hotel because we didn’t see anyone, not even in the office area. It almost felt like we were at an abandoned hotel! Cab drivers generally had never heard of the place, so we used Taj Mahal restaurant as a reference when taking cabs which helped. It wasn’t the worst, but it wasn’t the best. There are plenty of other places in San Jose with delicious breakfasts, nicer accommodations for the same price or less per night (though few have the view of this place). The kitchenette was nice, though I didn’t use it.

We were greeted at reception by Fernando who, the moment he found out we were birdwatchers, put us in a lovely room overlooking the greenery surrounding the hotel. He and the delightful young lady who served us breakfast in the morning could not have been more helpful. This was a lovely hotel, with secure parking, handy to a nice restaurant for dinner and only about 25 minutes from the airport.

I love this hotel and always stay here when I am visiting San José (from Norway). The rooms are beautiful and very clean. A terrace outside with lovely views of San José. The breakfast is great, with a lot of options. And Fernando is always very helpful and in a good mood. We always feel very welcome here. The hotel is centrally located in Escazu, with a good range of restaurants close by. And Multiplaza just a short drive away (4-5 minutes). Thank you for making our stay great, again :-) All the best, Susanne and Sebastian

Location, stuff and room is a great place to stay, if you have to run errands in Escarzu. Stuff member Fernando is extremely helpful and adjusts perfectly to you need which makes it very easy to stay and feel very welcome. The room is spacious and the view to the surroundings is great. Although right on a main access road it is very quiet, since you are a bit up and away from the road in the building. I stayed only one night, but definitely will be back on my next trip to San Jose.

Can not believe this place does not have a higher rating than it does on tripadvisor. The price is amazing and so is the service. Ok not a 5 star resort but if you are looking for a great value and clean rooms stay here.

We had booked a standard room with a queen bed and got upgraded to a much bigger room without additionnal charge. They have very modern decorations in the room, which makes it very unique. They have parking on site (very limited although, so make sure to resquest it during your reservation). The room was clean except for a few ants in the bathroom and in one of the beds (that we didn’t sleep on). The bathroom was spacious and had hot water. The staff was very helpfull as well. Our room had a nice view of San Jose. The breakfast was served from 7:30 to 9:30 and was great! We had 3 options from the menu (rice and eggs, pancakes and eggs or fruit smoothie). I strongly recommend!

Stayed here over the past weekend. The property is much bigger inside then it appears to be from the outside. The lobby has a sitting area and there is a large function room that serves as a breakfast area. The rooms are small, cozy, and have fans and TV. The bathroom was large and had hot water. There is not much road noise. Breakfast was just ok, I think the Gallo Pinto was left over from the previous day. All in all, I recommend this place for the value, location, and safety.

We stayed twice in this hotel within a short period of time. The rooms are spacious and clean, with good beds, and nice views over the San Jose valley. The receptionist, Fernando, was very kind and helpful. The place is a bit hard to find as from the outside it is not well announced that it is a hotel. It is on the main old road to Santa Ana, and especially the trucks coming down hill make a lot of noice breaking their speed, also at night. The breakfast is included, but is rather simple. Wifi is free, but not always working properly. Notwithstanding the criticism we felt at ease at this place and can recommend it.
