We stayed 30 of the 33 days at Hotel La Posada del Sol and we found it neat, a friendly owner who did everything to make our stay enjoyable, the cook who made our breakfast each morning was funny and a pleasure to be around. We had a nice room with private bathroom and a window to look out at... More

We cannot be happier with this hotel. I work online and the hotel offers a reliable wifi all through the entrance, room and eating/outside area. I was traveling with my husband (senior citizen) and the hotel fulfilled his needs. Our room was comfortable and always clean with space to keep our luggage organized for our one month stay. Breakfast is... More

From the minute I checked in I felt like part of the family. The owner was super courteous and welcoming even at the late of night. The bed and dorm was clean and shower hot! Woke up feeling refreshed and ready to ride. They have safe gated parking in front for your car or motorcycle. Fresh towels for shower and... More

The staff was very helpful. My traveling buddy misplaced his passport and the staff facilitated him relocating it. The room was nice with a beautiful painting on the inside. I also really enjoyed the breakfast.

Clean bathroom, shower, and room. Great sitting area to eat our dinner. The hosts were very sweet and made us feel very appreciated. After staying in sub-par and filthy hostels this place is what we needed to relax. The bed is comfy and the TV had a lot of channels, a few in English too. Too bad we only stay... More

I enjoyed my stay at La Posada del Sol. It is small, simple, clean and quiet. There is parking if you are driving and has pretty good wifi. Enjoy some hammock time right outside your room in the little garden that surrounds the place. Ask for the single unit in the back if you are traveling solo. No AC but... More

I stayed some days in this hotel with a friend because the backpacker accommodation was fully booked. For me this hotel is a good alternative if you want a cheap private room. The room was clean with big beds and had a private bathroom with warm water. Prices included a breakfast. There is a kitchen and a commen area with... More

Given the price of this hotel, it's not such a bad deal overall. The staff were mixed but the breakfast was tasty. Having said this, the room we stayed in wasn't the nicest and didn't seem to reflect the photos online. In terms of location, we struggled to find any reasonably priced restaurants nearby which left us wandering uncomfortably at... More

Pros: This hotel is located right in the center of San Jose. The rooms have television. The breakfast is very good. Good room for the price. There are some pretty good restaurants nearby. Cons: It's about a $20-$30 taxi from the airport. Restaurants in the vicinity close early.

Hotel Posada del Sol was fantastic for our quick two night stay in San Jose. The staff were extremely friendly, sweet and attentive. It's really clean, cosy and has a deliciously filling breakfast! There is a nice outdoor patio in the backyard and the place has free wifi. In addition, it's safe and secure. We stayed in a private double... More
