“Hampton Inn and Suites San Jose Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Feels like home, great location near the airport where the shuttle comes every few minutes. Was able to pay the airport tax at the hotel to avoid long lines at the airport and was able to use a print to print out boarding passes. It also has an early breakfast for earlier flights and a late check out in case of an afternoon flight.

Good Hampton Inn Standard. After 2 weeks of Costa Rican nature we enjoyed the pleasures of a "city hotel". Much appreciated the free international phone calls, breakfast buffet and shuttle service to the airport. And not to forget about: the Denny's Diner right opposite. For a night close to the airport to catch the early flight absolutely recommendable.

Highly recommend this hotel for its close proximity to the airport. The employees were friendly and the accommodations very nice. They served the "regular" hot breakfast, as well as a traditional Costa Rican breakfast.

We stayed here just last week and are going back before leaving Costa Rica. The price for a kingsize bed and junior suite was lower than the Holiday Inn next door. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They could not do enough for us and were so hospitable as opposed to the snooty clerk at the Holiday Inn. He was so snooty and quoted a ridiculous high price we walked out in the rain to go to the Hampton Inn. Clean, comfortable and fabulous. Breakfast was included and was delicious.

Convenient, American style hotel, very close to the airport. Great for a first or last night. Very helpful multi-lingual staff. Excellent value for money.

Restaurants close by are not that interesting but it's an easy taxi ride into San Jose.
