The property itself was so, so. Rooms were a decent sized and decently clean - did not notice any mold/mildew. The location was not close to any bus routes and was inconvenient from the major attractions in San Jose. Sketchy neighborhood to walk around in night also. It was a relatively quiet location for San Jose, sleep was not interrupted,... More

The rooms were halfway between a hostel and a hotel. Atrium was impressive but the rooms were in need of renovation. We arrived in the middle of the night and spent 15 anxious minutes trying to get the 24 hour receptionist to wake up. Having just passed groups of wasted people stumbling about in a nearby street, I was in... More

We were also travelling with Intrepid and many of our fellow travellers had issues with their rooms. Our room on the ground floor wasn't too bad but it was very dark and we had read other reviews so were not expecting too much. We didn't have any issues with the staff or noise but overall it is looking a bit... More

This is easily the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Also on an Intrepid tour and this was our last stop. We all arrived late and ready to hop into bed, however the hotel was not organised at all (had no idea who was going on what room etc) when we eventually got to our rooms some were not... More

Unbelievable. Others in our group had no issues in room. I had a dirty room. The bedding was dirty and stained. The toilet had waste dried to the outside bowl. The business did not offer a new room or to fix the problem. Disgusting. I slept on top of the bed.

Stayed here for one night at end of our Intrepid trip. Had read the reviews and wasn't expecting much. To be honest we had room on ground floor which was fine. Clean, lots of room with hot water unlike lots of our other stops an route. Staff were friendly enough and didn't mind us drinking in dining room downstairs. We... More

Also on an Intrepid tour, this was the starting hotel and forst impressions weren't good at all. This hotel was horrible, everything was a deep red or brown which made it feel very grotty. The receptionist was also very rude to me, I had a massive, heavy backpack, he watched me struggle to put it on my back and then... More

Stayed here for two nights as part of a tour. The rooms open onto a central reception/lounge area which is incredibly noisy. The loud chatting started in reception at 6:15am and sound travels easily. Wouldn't recommend staying here if you value sleep and good customer service

We had the unfortunate opportunity to spend a night here before the start of our Intrepid tour from Costa Rica to Panama. The staff member at reception was very rude - he left me locked outside for about half an hour despite being able to see me at the entrance. The area is unsafe and the room was very dirty... More
