We stayed a total of three nights at Rincon del Valle, two when we flew into Costa Rica and one when we flew out. It seems to be a business-class hotel, but we were celebrating our tenth anniversary and we were thrilled. The rooms are quiet and pleasant with everything you expect from a hotel, and the halls have little... More

This is a small hotel close to Sabana Park. I think its a good location if you are driving, but not so much if on foot. Everything was clean and tidy, and I never experienced a lack of English speakers. The first room was smaller than what I expected but when I said something they upgraded me, n/c to a... More

This hotel is on par. They upgraded our room free. Free WiFi; free breakfast which is delicious. Staff is very pleasant. Nikklas restaurant (Greek) is a 30 second walk and has the best cheeseburger EVER.

More of a business hotel with a great restaurant. A bit pricy and also far from downtown. But staff was wonderful. Rooms were very clean. There are a few places you can walk. But the staff was very helpful and kind.

Tiny room, no outside window, empty mini bar but good bed and restaurant. Also had a bad night with noisy people, the hotel is near the national stadium. A bit too east of center. Good for business night but not for families or tourists. I blame Kuoni for a bad advice...

The hotel staff were really friendly and check-in was smooth. There was a little plunge pool / jacuzzi which was a nice touch. The room and bathroom were both small and quite dated and overall it was very dark.

Start with the positives, we liked the location, on the outskirts of town and quiet, and the staff were extremely helpful and courteous. We stayed for four nights and that was three too many. Our room, (126) was dark and dingey, the room lighting inadequate, shower was barely hot enough, insufficient towels, small bathroom, but on the plus side the... More

Had one night here and suited our needs well. About a half hour walk into the city centre but situated in a pleasant spot close to parkland. Rooms are good, modern and spacious. Onsite restaurant was fine and our stay very comfortable. Good choice in San Jose.

The rooms had nice furniture but was very dark and had no view. Luckily we didn't spend much time in the room. However, the staff was very accommodating to our religious and kosher needs. They heated up our own dinners and we were able to eat in their very nice restaurant. Norma in particular was lovely and helpful. I mentioned... More
