“Great hotel in San Jose!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

My fiance and I stayed the weekend at the TRYP while visiting friends in San Jose. The hotel was nice, clean, and affordable. The free continental breakfast each morning was phenomenal. Only reason I did not give it 5-stars was the parking. The parking attendant left early on Friday (by 10:30) and even earlier Saturday (by 8 pm). On Saturday, we were forced to leave our car parked on the street, and worried about it all night, waking twice to the sound of car alarms (not ours).

But overall, pleasant staff, clean hotel, good buy if you are going to stay in San Jose.

I spend the last day of a 6 day trip at Tryp to take in a bit of Costa Rican Culture- I wish I hadn’t. The man who checked us in was not that friendly, nor was he rude. I had a voucher for a free room upgrade and at first, he said the hotel was full. He made a call, no one answered but he upgraded our room anyhow. He did explain that it was free international calls so that was a perk. The room was pretty good, considering that the building itself left much to be desired. Like mentioned in other reviews, it's Noisy...and it's obvious that the window are too thin. The bed was comfortable and they provided a free bottle of water. The room also came with free breakfast- IT WAS AWESOME=) Being that everyone warned us to return to the hotel before sunset we had little to do once we were back. There’s no gym, pool, or anything for guest really to do. Most of the channels were in Spanish and the English channels either had no sound or kept going out due to loss of signal. We went to happy hour and spoke to the bar tender for a bit. He was super nice and we enjoyed our conversation with him. The airport ride for $27 is a bit ridiculous, I wish I stayed at a hotel that included airport transfer and that was closer to the shopping center.

Dear Shai22, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review, that helps us focus on the weak areas that we want to improve in order to provide our customers and great experience. I would also like to highlight that thanks to our guests’ comments we started a double-glass work in our rooms and now all the 5th floor is noise-proof, hopefully by the end of this year, we will have 100% of our rooms done.

We were passing through San Jose and stayed here twice -both times the rooms were clean,large and bright. The lobby and lobby bar was modern and comfortable. Really excellent value for money even for affordable San Jose. The generous breakfast buffet included in the cost provided fresh fruit, cook yourself waffles, design your own omlettes - very satisfying. Also as noted, international calls are Free! Mario the porter was helpful and always cheery in a friendly, unobsequious way - he should give lessons! The front desk staff was also accommodating when a room change was requested.
There are some inside rooms so if you want to avoid traffic noise (minimal anyway for noisy SJ) and light these are available. A nice find and I'd happily return.

Was passing through San Jose to catch a ship from CR back to LA.

Got to the hotel late. Driver had a little difficulty finding the place. Apparently it used to be called something else.

First impression of hotel was good. Nice entry up some stairs. Small reception area with a restaurant/bar to the left. Looked like a nice spot to hang out. Had a younger looking, hip crowd.

Guys at desk where very pleasant. Answered all my questions and were very helpful.

Casino was empty. Not much going on there.

Room I had was a little small. No convenience items, lotion, soap, etc in bathroom. May have been a housekeeping oversight.

The walls are thin. Could hear lots of noise from hallway and street. There is also a nightclub or something very close to hotel. Loud pounding music until very early in the am.

Walked around a bit. Neighborhood was ok. Typical of San Jose. Always be cautious. Took a cab downtown where there was a little more going on. Can catch a cab near where the nightclub is in the mall area connected to hotel.

I would probably stay again. Would definitely request a room away from the club.

Overall, a nice property. Can't give it more than 3 stars because of the noise though.

Dear MichaelJ, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review in Trip Advisor.
You are totally right, we went through a name change and starting last November we became a Tryp by Wyndham; I am glad you found us! The Casino closed back a new months ago because of the new law of free-smoke, hopefully we will have something new and refreshing there in the near future. My deep apologies for not having amenities in your room, definitely an internal mistake and will be more cautions. We are hardly working in the noise problem, already 5th floor with double glass and hopefully by the end of the year we will have 100% of the hotel.

The bonus surprise of FREE international phone calls was certainly a plus to get to call home to friends and families. The room was lovely and well equiped. Dinner was a little expensive but very tasty. The free buffet breakfast was exceptionally delicious (and so attractive I took photos).

"A Hotel with a Retro beat! " Stayed for a week and it was very accommodating, the meals were delicious (starting with breakfast and ending with dinner), room was clean and very cozy. The decoration had a 70s retro style, loved the lounge music, all the staff were helpful and also, I was able to find my favorite tea on the desk, "Twinings". It is indeed a good place to stay on business, close to San José centro. Kudos!

Stayed here on several one nite stays during August 2012 while transiting to various parts of Costa Rica. Each room was different but always clean, great bed and pillows. All the staff wre very helpful from the bellman, to front desk to bar and restaurant staff. I very much appreciated the wifi, free computer/internet access in the lobby and free international calling. Restaurant serves a very good breakfast and, yes, dinner is expensive but eating out in San Jose at nice places just is. Very good food. Some rooms were noisy (this is downtown San Jose) but things quiet down after 11 pm.

Room Tip: higher floors seem to be quieter, especially when facing the main street.
