Not a bad hotel, if a bit dated and malfunctioning. Bedroom was nice but the bathroom needs renovating as shabby and the bath plug did not work despite multiple requests to reception that meant we could not bathe our small son. Food is appalling so eat elsewhere. 20 minutes walk into town. In my opinion worth a stay if you...

The hotel is nice enough, though a bit dark as others have commented. However, our room was fine, spacious with comfortable beds. We did have two rooms during our two nights. The first did not have a well-working shower, the second did. The staff was helpful. My wife said the breakfast buffet is the best she's ever had at at...

The building itself is indeed ugly and it's very dark inside. However the rooms are nice and the beds are confortable. The staff is friendly and the breakfast buffet ok. Last but not least and very hard to find in Costa Rica, their internet is fast!

The ENTIRE staff were very helpful and friendly throughout or stay and most spoke passable to good English. Our room was large, bed was excellent Select Comfort.

Not a charmer, but clean and comfortable with a perfectly reasonable breakfast and a garden with a pool. Service is very good and the room was comfortable. The whole hotel is a bit old and needs a facelift, but it's perfectly fine for a night or two in San Jose.
