This hotel was really beautiful, across the street from parque la sabana. The room was nicely decorated, spacious, the bed was comfortable, the pool was clean. The breakfast was delicious too. I highly recommend it.

Great, quiet place with beautiful grounds/pool. Really nice to be greeted at check-in with cappuccinos! The room wasn't too large but comfortable and clean. The breakfast was delicious and different every day. Best part of staying there had to be the staff though... so friendly and helpful!

We stayed here after landing in San Jose to recover from the journey and this place was perfect. Comfortable beds, clean, good sized rooms and friendly service. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment which had two doubles in the bedroom and a separate room with seating area and kitchenette. Breakfast at the hotel was lovely - typical Costa Rican... More

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were very clean, and the hotel itself was beautiful. The breakfast was without a doubt the best part, and was probably the best breakfast I've ever had at a hotel. It was a good distance away from the craziness of the city, but still close enough to walk to places you... More

Always staff has been very helpful and friendly. The one thing we noticed lately is a little noisy...maybe more young families this last time....but overall a great place to stay when visiting San Jose.

A very nice place, with a great staff and breakfast is very good. Location is good, near downtown but not IN it. Only problem I ever have there (and I've stayed many times) is the slowness and unreliability of the Internet. Other than that, it's excellent!

This hotel is affordable, clean, cozy and has great staff and breakfast. The pool is beautiful and there are second floor verandas with lots of seating for anyone. Wasn't t able to book the free and 5.00 transportation to and from the airport because of time. Taxi will cost 34.00USD from airport.
