A very friendly hotel with attentive staff who are very happy to help with any enquiries. I booked two trips through them and was picked up just outside the hotel. Good breakfast and the cafe is perfect fir a quick bite with great staff. Rooms are spacious and clean with a ceiling fan. Communal areas are relaxing a great to curl up and read a book after a long day or access the free wifi. Just minutes from the central market and national theatre.

This hotel was ok. The staff was nice. We accidentally booked it without noticing there was no ac. There was a fan. The breakfast was good but the same thing each day. They helped us make a tour with zip lining and rafting . When we left, they knew we were going to another hotel close by but they didn’t ask why we were leaving. That surprised me.

Muchas gracias por sus comentarios. Lamentamos el inconveniente de la falta de aire acondicionado; pues efectivamente no todas nuestras habitaciones tienen porque San José es una ciudad normalmente muy fresca. Sin embargo, si tenemos habitaciones disponibles con AC, siempre es posible hacer un cambio sin ningún costo. Con respecto al desayuno, contamos con 5 opciones distintas, pero sí se sirven las mismas todos los días. De la misma forma, siempre está la opción de consumir algo de la cafetería con un costo adicional. Siempre respetamos la decisión de los clientes con respecto a su estancia; creímos que la reserva del otro hotel la tenían previamente y por eso no le hicimos ninguna pregunta.

Probably the nicest building of San José. Perfectly located near the museo del Oro and in front of the best Argentinian restaurant in towin. Welcoming and nice staff. Good services and advise. Highly recommended.
