...if you don't want to stay in downtown Costa Rica, but still want to be near the city center. There's a very good access to public transportation from the hotel. The Hotel used to be just a restaurant before it became a hotel and they have amazing Asian food. The people who work there speak perfect English and are super... More

We stayed at Isla Verde Hotel on July 26 and had a wonderful experience. The staff was warm and welcoming and they were able to accommodate us in a deluxe room without a reservation.

This was our first night in San Jose and it was very nice. The staff was welcoming, the room was clean and comfortable, and the food at the hotel was pretty good. The only downside is that the hotel is somewhat far from downtown San Jose.

The hotel rooms are very nice. The staff was very good, easy to work with. The food in this family run hotel/restaurant was fantastic. Definitely worth staying again. Luci was wonderful, and a joy to work with, great help with setting up trips and general knowledge of San Jose and the area.

That's how you want to be welcomed after a 24 hour travel. Staff was extraordinary friendly and helpful. They called multiple times at the airport because of the missing luggage and took care of our car and luggage while we were travelling to Tortuguero. Rooms were very clean and nice. Location is a little bit outside of downtown which makes... More

IF you have an appointment with the US Embassy in San José, the ONLY place to stay is one block away, at the Isla Verdé Hotel !!! Beautiful Accommodations, Courteous / Friendly Staff, Excellent Food & of course, Location, make this a no-brainer, for US Citizens !!!
