We stayed here for one night on March 27, 2016. Though it's in a relatively large city, it has the feel of a country-side estate. Our room was very nice, with large windows and air conditioning. The open air restaurant has great atmosphere and offers food for a variety of tastes. A choice of 5 different breakfasts is included in... More

The Hotel Zima was a lovely place to stay in San Isidro. A ten-minute walk to the center of town, it had comfortable rooms and a lovely poolside area. The staff was very accommodating and responded quickly to any necessities. The only drawback was some issues with water pressure and adequate hot water, but we would certainly stay here again.

It's your average hotel, good service and location. It has pool for the children. I liked it and would come back. The hotel seems like it was old and remodeled but it's ok. Price is right. Quiet place/area.

We stopped here for a night stay and they had Clean rooms with good pricing...food in restaurant with very good price and delicious. The reception desk was very helpful and eager to please. The location is a little hidden, but once you find it, it's central to shopping and restaurants in San Isidro

The staff is really friendly and eager to please. Given the constant noise it is amazingly quiet once you enter the premises. The restaurant is great with a chef who will go out of his way to make you something nice. We stayed for several days while on business and each night after work it felt like coming home....

I spent one night at the Best Western Hotel Zima on a business trip to San Isidro. I thought the room was top notch and the staff was well trained and extremely pleasant. Parking is ample and the WiFi is good, even in the room. I suspect noise could be a problem at times due to the pool and the... More

I booked here on Expedia, after flying to CR and driving from San Jose was a relaxing quaint place to stay in the city. It is tucked away about a block off of the main street, easy to get to, but quiet considering how close it is to the square. I walked everywhere but is a short taxi ride as... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to San Isidro, the largest city in the southern zone of Costa Rica, also affectionately referred to by locals as Perez Zeledon, located in the province of San Jose. In the Valley of the General, surrounded by Talamanca Mountains, the Cordillera de Talamanca is a Mountain range that lies on the border between Costa Rica and Panama. The BEST WESTERN Hotel Zima is undoubtedly the quietest hotel of the area, with a convenient location nearby to supermarkets, drugstores, restaurants, stores and bars, as well a just meters from the Musoc bus station which provides transportation service between San Jose- San Isidro-San Jose. Many tourists utilize San Isidro del General as a stopping point when traveling between San Jose and other southern Costa Rica destinations such as Dominical, Uvita, Golfito, the Peninsula de Osa and Puerto Jimenez. Perez Zeledon is also great town to prepare for treks to Cerro de la Muerte and Cerro Chirripo, which is Costa Rican's highest peak and most challenging climb. In summer it is possible on clear days to see all across the country (from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea). It would be a pleasure to coordinate your tours to Nauyaca Water Falls (road to Dominical) as well outdoor activities such as bird watching, horseback riding in Las Quebradas Center Biological. ... more   less
