Perfect for a short stay. 2 minutes to supermarket, 15 min to the Main Street for shopping. Rooms are clean. Food is good. Pool good for hat days but nothing special. In total: for a stop over a couple of days - perfect!

The personal is friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and seem to be quite new. Breakfast is absolutely satisfactory and typically for Costa Rica! To walk downtown takes about 25min. Restaurants and a supermarket are close to the hotel!

The front desk staff is wonderful. I broke my wrist while I was there and they upgraded me because they saw how much trouble I was having- so kind. I liked the style of the hotel; it felt very modern. Comfortable beds!

I arrived about 12:45 and my room wasn't ready. The front desk agent told me check in was at 2pm. I asked if I can check the bag and went to the restaurant. I tried to order but a lot of servers don't speak English not like coco beach and Arenal! Then I came back to check in at 2...

Tourists usually spend only one two nights in SAN Jose, depending on the in-/outbound flight timetable. With this in mind, the authentico is conveniently located between the airport and city center and with a nice walking option through the close Sabena park. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and prices are fair. Recommended for a short stay

The hotel is not of the highest quality. Rooms are old, poor room and bathroom decoration, high audibility and no air-conditioning. But the staff is friendly, good breakfast for this hotel level. Location is average. 25 minutes on foot to the main pedastrian street. So I recommend it only if the price is attractive and your comfort requests are not...

I have stayed here in the past and have enjoyed it. I disagree with the review that there is nothing close by. You can walk to a beautiful park with lots of action, soccer stadium, things to do and miles of trails (Park is about 3 blocks). You can easily walk to downtown, I have done it many times, maybe...
