This hotel has better than average amenities for its price range. It is clean, well run and has a superb staff, who are willing to go out of their way to assist you in any way possible. We will definitely recommend it to all our family and friends.

We decided to stay outside of San Jose for one night before we boarded a flight in the morning. When we arrived at this hotel...we were shocked. Based on reviews here (and their website), we expected an upscale boutique hotel with "views of the mountains, the city, or a garden" (as stated on their room descriptions). We got a view of a parking lot, right outside our room. Our room opened to a parking lot, and our windows did not lock properly. We requested a better room (for which we would have paid more for), and we were told there were none....which was not true. The receptionist mentioned something about Expedia (how we booked our rooms) and would not give us a better room, off the parking lot, with 2 beds.

Problems started at the airport, where we were picked up in a tiny car that our luggage did not fit in. We found the staff to be tolerable at best. It felt as if we were 'putting them out' by requesting a different room, or directions to a restaurant. We did not eat there because the prices were ridiculous. We went down to the market in town.

On a positive note, the rooms were very clean and well kept. The king-sized bed was very very comfortable, but the single bed was not.

It was located in a sparse neighborhood in the hills. if you don't have a car, or aren't willing to walk, you must take a taxi to get anywhere. I didn't feel entirely safe in the area (barbed wire and guard dogs all over) and was upset that our windows didn't lock properly.

also, the $200.00 deposit still hasn't been cleared from my bank. Its been roughly 4 days since we checked out.

you get what you pay for.

Looking for an affordable, yet high quality solution? Want to avoid the crowd of San Jose? Go to this newly built hotel just a few minutes from the airport and the capital.
The staff is extremely helpful with all the needs you may have.
There is a large grocery store nearby where you also can buy your coffe gifts for friends for a significantly lower price than in specialty places.

If you are looking for a great little hotel near San Jose and about 20 minutes from the airport - Hotel Luisiana is the one. A simple unexpected elegance and the amenities
of a much larger hotel. I was especially impressed by the staff - Randell, Maurizio and
Carolina were helpful and very friendly. I was also impressed by their free International
calls policy, as I've never seen it before, and think it's a terrific feature. When you enter
another country and the cell doesn't work - having this amenity is most useful. Beds
are extremely comfortable, shower is hot and the hotel is very clean. What more do you need for a short stay that will be the end or beginning of your exploration of Costa Rica?

Truly--we were made to feel right at home--starting with the initial Skype
call to Arturo, front desk manager and his side-kick, Randall; to Yuri, our
wonderful van driver, to the kitchen staff and housekeeping, who were
endlessly patient with our questions and requests, and who volunteered the
kind of helpful information clueless, non-Spanish-speaking tourists like us
need (but often don't get). . . We would go back in a heartbeat! (and we
hope we will be able to, soon).
