A truly top-notch hotel. The rooms are comfortable (no suites that I'm aware of) and the restaurant is wonderful with an excellent menu and enormous wine list. Excellent service. The best place in San Jose to my mind.

Hotel's Favorite
We spent the night at this beautiful hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica on March 25, 2021. The staff were very kind, our room was beautiful and clean and our room had a lush garden right outside of the window. Beautifully colored birds serenaded us during the day from the trees that you could touch from our open window. I love baths so I was pleased that they had a very comfortable tub. It was a perfect stay and we wished we could have stayed a few more nights! We had supper in their restaurant, which was absolutely delicious with the happiest and kindest waiter that we felt like he was a family member that we LOVED!

A wonderful building and very comfortable room. Rooms are not as luxurious as the rest of the hotel but they are good for a short stay. The jacuzzi in the deck are nice for a moment with your family (book it in advance a s it is only for you). The restaurant is delicious.

Stayed here for a night before and after our exploration of Costa Rica - it appears many guests do this to make flying in and out less hectic. The hotel is beautiful, the beds are very comfortable, and our sleep was undisturbed. The staff were very welcoming - for example, they were kind enough to store some gear for us between our stays. On our return, I had suffered a bit of a zip lining injury and they made sure I had plenty of ice packs to aid my recovery! The restaurant is high end - dinner may seem expensive to some. Our rate included breakfast (which had a fine selection and modest prices). I will gladly look forward to staying here again. The only downside, if I looked hard for one, is the rooms are a bit “New York City’ sized and the neighborhood is not terribly walkable - but again, if you are just crashing here to relax before your international flight after a week of hiking the Osa Peninsula or similar, these are not problems. The calm, quiet, professional care more than make up for it!

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our honeymoon, and we highly recommend it if you're stopping through San Jose. It's close to a main thoroughfare but on a quiet side street. The hotel itself has a very charming vibe with fountains, lush greenery, and an amazing courtyard. The terrace off of our room was beautiful and private. The food and drinks at the restaurant were amazing.
