This is exactly what I had hoped for when booking my first trip to Costa Rica. After reading reviews and viewing pictures I decided to book a more authentic hotel and am so happy I did!! Maurecio one of the hotel employees was so helpful and kind. I appreciated his interest in our activities of each day. The entire staff was amazing. It was nice to share our experiences and get advice. I never felt unsafe in the area despite some of the other reviews. The owner was at breakfast every day I was there and there was plenty of delicious fruit, coffee, eggs, toast, and black beans and rice! The rooms are clean and spacious. The history of the building has been maintained and is beautiful! I will never stay anywhere else in San Jose. All the tours we booked picked us up from Santo Tomas and it is a 5 min walk to Central Ave and most of the parks and museums. Carlos is the night time bartender and server and makes the most perfect drinks – pina colada and coffees were my drinks of choice. Sipping a cocktail by the pool after a day of adventure. This hotel is perfect! Thank you Hotel Santo Tomas - I will be back soon.
