Stayed at Hotel Autentico on both sides of our trip. When we arrived it was an easy Taxie drive from the airport and then at the end of our trip we stayed there before returning to the airport. The rooms are clean and roomy. The staff was always in masks and there are hand sanitizing stations everywhere. The staff was fantastic, always making sure we had everything we needed. There is a dining room in the hotel that overlooks the pool with tables out by the pool. The food is good and the staff again was very pleasant. Would recommend for anyone that is coming in and out of San Jose.

The good: staff, prompt service, decent location between airport and heart of the city, grocery very close by, common areas appear clean, windows can be opened The not so good: sound carries between rooms and room door, overall appearance of rooms ok but in need of maintenance, rooms are dark, bedding is only sheets, no topper of any kind, very limited breakfast in lieu of buffet (buffet still available at other nearby hotels)

Room clean but just up the stairs from restraurant,people shouting in the corridor from 4.00am slaming doors and on mobile phones.reported this to reception but were not really interested. We stayed at the Best western a few weeks ago,which was far superior to this hotel.
