This hotel is very nice to stay. The rooms are light and spacious. We really liked the inside garden in which you can have your breakfast. The staff is verry friendly to arrange all the tours and transport you wish. greetings Richard and Judith from Holland

We flew in and out of San Jose on our recent trip to Costa Rica and chose to stay at Hotel Kekoldi for two nights total (one night at the beginning of the trip, one night at the end). The staff was very accommodating in arranging airport transportation for us, even when my flight was cancelled and rescheduled with delays.... More

Breakfast in the garden was a pleasure for the kids.The rooms are modern and well decorated; the staff was very helpful, and it was very nice to come back from the city centre to the hotel.

The staff at this location are simply amazing - always polite and friendly, always happy to help in any way and willing to go the extra mile. The rooms are absolutely spotlessly clean and the beds we found to be very comfortable.

I found Kekoldi at Tripadvisor, and when I researched their website, I found that they offered travel packages. As I wanted to see as much of Costa Rica in my 14-day stay as possible, I made arrangements with them for their 14-nights, 15-day package. I was not disappointed. As soon as I contacted them, they were helpful with all of... More

My group of 8 stayed one night at Kekoldi. We arrived late in the day, checked in and met a friendly clerk at the hotel. The rooms were clean, adequately sized, and had comfortable beds. The price was right, breakfast was included. The clerk was very helpful and directed us to a nearby complex of night clubs and pizza places.... More

My wife and I went on our honeymoon to Costa Rica, and took a taxi to the Kekoldi directly from the airport after landing. We had a cute and clean room with TV, Air conditioning, and hardwood floors. The staff was impeccable--they tended to our every need, were extremely friendly, and gave us great advice about the rest of our... More

I was in the Kekoldi Hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica last month and there are not enough words for me to describe the service that I received from the guys at the front desk.

I can assure that noone of Kekoldi staff took the camera. The guest forgot to mention that he brought someone in late night before... Take your conclusions. Despite of several recommendations from us he left the window open for longer periods and someone from the street could have taken the camera. We are very sorry that he lost his camera,... More

In March 2008 we (2 families, children from 14 to 16) made a trip through Costa Rica where we came to San Jose for two times and had our stays at Hotel Kekoldi. Both times we were given a warm welcome. The hotel is very nice, an oasis in a neigbourhood of isignificant buildings. The rooms are bright, spacious and... More
