“Wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

I was traveling with a group of friends during our recent trip to costa rica when one of our bags got stolen with my friend's passport in it. We had to take a long bus ride back to san jose for the us embassy and we came across this hotel only about 2 blocks from it. We were tired and hungry and the lady at the front desk was a life saver for us. her name was luica and she was amazing. so sweet and so helpful. she answered all our questions and even printed out things from the internet to help us. It was just what we needed after what had happend. a hope that the rest of our vacation would get better. The rooms were very clean and the free internet access was a good thing.

This place is just as nice as any 4 star U.S. hotel without the spa. I stayed a couple of weeks here and it was always clean, comfortable and secure. They also did a great job with my laundry and dry cleaning. Nice comfortable room and bedding with the best Chinese restaurant in San Jose

Room Tip: no fitness center or pool but perfect in every other catagory

Found this great place only about 2 blocks from the US Embassy in San Jose (pavas). Super clean and very quiet. Have stayed their on 2 seperate trips now. Rates are also good. I use this hotel now as a base to fly the local air carrier ( Nature Air Lines) The hotell is only about 2k from the airport at Pavas. Food is great also.. Well worth checking it out!
