I looked on line for a hotel in Costa Rica and find a rate for $ 67 x night. I called and JAVIER Prado , first quoted me $80 x night And when I told him the price I have found he agreed for the same rate. When we arrived, no reception hall, he made us wait in a tiny... More

There are some things to like about the Prado Inn, such as a complete well-stocked kitchen, comfortable bed, good breakfast, gated security, and only a 3 minute walk from the Tica Bus terminal. There are some negatives as well, which include small bedrooms, a lack of comfortable seating, air conditioning only in the bedroom, and noisy clientele (at least when... More

I stayed here twice in Feb 2015, and would highly recommend it if you are looking for great service, very nice staff, very clean large rooms, all located in / near central San Jose. The only drawback to this hotel is that it is in / near central San Jose, which is a city that leaves a lot to be... More

This is a modern comfortable hotel. The rooms have two small double bedrooms (each with their own aircon, fan and tv), bathroom and surprisingly well stocked kitchen with full refrigerator. There is no table. Breakfast is included and is satisfying. Most importantly if you are just getting back from one place and transiting to another there is a coin laundry.

I really just sent a night there as San José isn't a very good place for tourists. The area doesn't seem to be very safe but the hotel has a security guard, there's barbels everywhere and the location is convenient as it is close to the bus station. The room was clean and spacious, there was a nice kitchen...pretty much... More

The atmosphere was nice and comfortable. We feel directly welcome and the room was excellent clean and there was nothing to miss. The location is also very good. Just ten minutes by feet to reach the central market. But it is not that cdntral that you cant sleep cause driving cars. The food was typical Costa Rica and every morning... More

Very clean and professional hotel in the heart of San Jose, Costa Rica. Within walking distance to downtown, parks, grocery stores, markets and anything you could expect to find in San Jose. Very nice breakfast area. Full kitchens and 2 bedroom suites available. Great place to stay to have dental work or any other medical procedures done.

Small hotel in the heart of San Jose. Clean rooms with many amentities, full kitchens, baths, and individual bedrooms for a little privacy from the kids. Don't miss the complimentary breakfast. Tipical Tico fare that varies each day. Eggs, Waffles, Gallo de Pinto (black beans, rice, and cilantro), fried cheese, fresh papaya, fresh pinapple, juices, and coffee. You can't ask... More
