This hotel is a great value hotel. Excellent wifi connection in the superior room, and the rate includes a full buffet breakfast. Get used to having rice and beans for breakfast as it is a main staple of the buffet, however, there are options. Restaurant staff very friendly and the food is very good.

My husband and I booked this hotel for the first leg of our honeymoon very last minute when our AirBnB canceled on us. It was the only halfway decent hotel in San Jose with any availability so it wasn’t much of a choice. The hotel is in a safe neighborhood that is walking distance to downtown, a large park, and...

I spent 2 nights in the hotel. There is a dog hotel right next door. I was up all night listening to dogs barking. The hotel is nice, relatively modern and updated but don't count on getting a good night sleep

This hotel was a great value. We felt that it was in a great location, right between downtown and our favorite area in Escazu. The rooms were clean, but had no AC. At first we were a bit nervous, but San Jose cools down at night, and we were just fine. Great breakfast as well. Recommended!

Awesome staff in the bar/restaurant.The staff was very friendly. The hotel is in a convenient location. The cab between the hotel and airport was $30. There are a few restaurants around the area walking distance. The bar/restaurant in the hotel closes around 9-930pm.

The pool area was really nice and service was fantastic! Rooms were also good, but not quite as modern as other areas. There was also a good choice of food at breakfast. It's a good hotel for a one or two day stop!

I stayed here for a couple of weeks for work training and I must say, this hotel is very practical and simple. The room was very well kept and clean.

Everything else is adequate but the NOISE from the staff. Seems that they have PARTY every day since 8am. There's a room for them to stay or rest, and they are very HAPPY there.
