“Good Hotel in an Upscale Area of San Jose”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Had a recent two night stay during our week-long Costa Rica location. Taxi from the airport costs $30. Check-in was prompt with courteous staff even at 11pm. The room is well furnished and clean. The gym is not large but functional with high quality equipment. The pool is pretty small but the water fall at one end provided smooth massage and the water temperature was just right, very comfortable. Had plenty of choices at breakfast including an omelet station which was a nice surprise. Security is on 24/7 which made us felt safe. But I am not sure why the guard stopped me from taking a photo of the building (Avenida Escazu) next door.
Anyway, a pretty good stay here to start of our vacation.

Dear Toga 1K, thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience in the hotel. I am very happy you mentioned about our pool and to know that you enjoyed it. We recently added a heater to the pool to give our guests a much better experience in the pool on regards to temperature. Our omelet station is very popular and you mentioning it made our staff smile. I am sorry to hear about your experience while taking a picture in Avenida Escazu. Safety is very important to us and to Avenida. You can always inform the guards and they will be more than happy to allow you to take pictures of such nice area. Hope to have you back again soon.

This property is a great location for Business or Pleasure. I have been here a number of times but now that the restaurants, food court , and Starbucks is open you can have the best of both worlds. Either a nice typical meal or a more high end experience. The staff, rooms, and security is excellent. I also like the fact that this place is 25 min from the airport, and cab fare is cheap and safe. I have brought my family here during a business trip and they loved the options the location presents. The breakfast with the omelette bar is awesome as well as the evening lite fare which consist of some different finger foods etc....

Room Tip: Top floors are great, however elevator can be really slow during the evening

We travel to San Jose occasionally for business and have found this hotel to be a perfect "base". It is near major shopping areas and our business appointments as well. The location in Avenida Escazu provides lots of dining options at night, without having to drive. The rooms are great for working and relaxing. Breakfast is very good. This hotel works well for us! There is construction going on next door, so request a room away from it.

I stayed for 3 nighs in early August. The hotel was super. The employees were helpful, the suites were outstanding, the breakfast was tasty & the location was excellent. The restaurants & shopping in the area of the hotel were top notch, especially the Peruvian restaurnat behind the hotel. I can't wait to return.

Residence Inn is well located at Escazu area. Surrounded by some restaurants, has also a supermarket close to it. The breakfast is good, with some local specialties like "gallo pinto". Rooms clean and spacious.

Room Tip: Very quiet area, so you won't have problems with noise.
