The owners have obviously made a very good effort at developing this building into a nice little hotel, but they made a few choices that are very poor, yet easily remedied. First the good... The hotel is very clean. Everything seemed to work well, though the AC in my room was very noisy. The beds and pillows quite comfortable. The bathroom was very small but perfectly fine. Had a large flat screen TV and a nice view from the 4th floor. All desk persons were very nice. I did not try the restaurant. Two small issues are the safe and the lift are from around 1940. The safe is an old key type that is mounted to the floor in the closet (see pic). The key didn't bother me too much, but the floor? Seriously?? And the lift is actually fast and works well if no one else is using it. It's tiny with 4 manual push buttons and no indicators at all. But in their defense, it's a small hotel and a modern lift would be costly. Personally, I find it acceptable, but some will not. Now the three issues I hated (two are ridiculous)... First there is no fridge, even though there was a perfect area in my tiny room for one (table pic). Second, there was no tissue in the room. Third, and the worst, there is no normal toilet paper! They installed those horrid sheet dispensers found occasionally in public restrooms (see last pic). Again, seriously?? I had to go out to buy my own tissue and toilet paper! Ownership made a conscious choice to use those dispensers and not provide tissue, and I found that beyond ridiculous. I REALLY wanted to rate 4 bubbles, but simply cannot because of the toilet paper idiocy. If they choose to provide normal necessities in the future, then I would highly recommend this hotel.

Comfortable, modern boutique hotel. Had 4th floor room with view of mountains. Best sleep I've had in 10 days - king size bed really comfortable. If you need to recharge your electronics, no worries here. Our room had at least 8 US-style wall outlets. Nespresso-type coffee maker with excellent Costa Rican coffee pods. AC worked fine and is quiet - once we found its remote control. Breakfast is traditional Costa Rican - fried plantains, gallo pinto (rice and beans etc) scrambled eggs, fresh fruit. Not a large selection but well done.

This hotel is probably adequate for a short overnight. Four floors with one small, slow elevator. Breakfast was chaos on the one day that I tried to eat, as there were no clean tables and barely any food. Our first night our bed was maybe a double--pretty small. Clean. Close to a very good restaurant, Aqui Es. The only good area to sit and have a beer is at the entrance, outside. A great alternative at a lesser cost is Hotel Autentico, about three blocks away.

I stayed here as part of an Overseas Adventure Travel tour of CR. I came 2 nights early, and had a very small room (bathroom was incredibly small). Room was on third floor (left after exiting the elevator). Bed was comfortable king size, wifi strong, and good air conditioning. I left for 3 nights at Drake Bay, before returning for 1 night. This second room, on the 2nd floor, was huge - with a little kitchenette. Again, comfortable bed, quiet, large bathroom, and good air conditioning. The last night at the end of the tour was room 314. Large room with a small kitchenette… but paper thin walls with the adjoining room. I only needed the room for 10 hours as my return home flight was to leave at 1am. Unfortunately the adjoining room had 3 very loud women who had returned from a shopping trip to Panama and had to call each of their relatives on their speaker phone… so no sleep before my flight. Breakfast was traditional CR (scrambled eggs, rice & beans, some type of meat (differed each day), and a small bowl of fresh fruit. This hotel does not have COVID requirements, so i had breakfast outside on their terrace in the parking lot. The first two days, they brought me the meal. The second, breakfast was a buffet, so i took outside. The third visit, i didnt have breakfast. The front desk workers were polite but did not go out of the way to be helpful.

I arrived in San Jose three days before my tour began. I was disappointed at the hotel because all the reviews said there was a very good restaurant in the hotel, but that was not the case. They only served breakfast and breakfast was rather meager. The rooms are small, and the bathrooms very small. Everything was clean, and the bed was alright for me, but I heard others complain. The location is far from other restaurants, so you need a taxi. The hotel is close to Sabanna Park which is a nice place to walk with a small museum in the park. It is not far from the airport. I used Uber to go downtown and it cost $2.80. You need to sit in the front because they are not legal.

Affordable, comfortable & clean. We could walk to a few great restaurants as well & splurge with the money saved on our room. There is a small restaurant onsite as well for breakfast or dining. Parking included. We'll check out the breakfast tomorrow. Close to the park for a nice afternoon walk around the lake.

Room was clean and cool with lovely bath products; and the breakfast was absolutely amazing! Location was good (about a 15-20 min walk up a main street to the Central Market area, and easy taxi access). Very pleased with this hotel!

This cute boutique hotel is located in an excellent location close by La Sabana and Centro Colon area. The property it's very good maintained and the decoration is a plus. Staff is friendly and very helpful all the time, always trying to please the guests. They made me feel like being at home. I have to mention the front desk personnel were very nice all the time. During my check in, the General Manager in person (Mr. Andrés Guzmán) took care of myself and accommodated me in my room. At nights the person who works night shift was very helpful opening the gate for me to park my car in the parkin lot. Thanks all you guys, the next time I visit Costa Rica definitely I will stay with you again.

Booked a room through their website and paid with a credit card. When I tried to cancel a few months later at least 6 emails were exchanged in an attempt to have them credit my card. Almost a month later I still had no credit and contacted my card issuer. The hotel apparently never did a refund and the card company after 60 more days issued me a formal credit.
