The room itself was ok but needed revamping. Beds were hard and no hot water. Parking was safe but across the street and not very flexible with going and coming. Breakfast was traditional and good overall ( see picture)

Pros: walking distance from bus station (Terminal Central 7-10) so very convenient for one night if you're taking the bus in the morning, AC, breakfast (we left very early so they packed us some fruit and yogurt to go), clean, bright, restaurant/bar on main floor, friendly reception Cons: loud music from restaurant bar, a little impersonal and no common area...

For a good price, you get a large room, 2 beds, med bathroom w/lrg shower (hot water), WiFi, flat screen TV. Also free breakfast in the morning. I was catching an airplane, so the airport shuttle was a welcome extra, even though there was a $30US fee, which is about the same as a taxi.

We've been here only one night because we had to stay in San Jose our first night, on our Costa Rican trip. The location is great... basically downtown, walking distance to the Pre-Colombian Gold Museum. The rooms (we booked 2 standards) were large and also comfortable. Beyond doubt a place to stay when in San Jose.

The street that is located on is not so good as a matter of fact one of the worse of the capital. Is not bad if you are not going out at night, but still you get the stink of the urine of all the homeless that stay close by.

The best service ... I want to thank the staff for their attention & service. I like the hotel's location in San Jose downtown. A confortable place to travel and meet so many things around the city. I was enjoyed the time traveling into Costa Rica, with one of the best prices in San Jose downtown.
