We stayed at this hotel about one year ago the first time. It definitely is a long way from the airport but it's location proved to be a winner. We had always avoided downtown in the past but decided to change it up a little. That turned out to be a great decision. If you're a walker, and like parks, and mingling with crowds of people, then this location is great. In fact, after our experience the first time, we decided to stay here again, this time for a whole week which just ended three days ago. Was it perfect? O course not. It's an older hotel, the TV is tiny, there is no air conditioning, but it was clean, reasonably priced and included breakfast in the price. But what was the most important to us, by far, was the incredible service we received. In fact, that's what compelled us to stay here for a second time. From the front desk (Juan and staff) to the restaurant, run by another Juan, we could not have asked for better service. We often ate in our room, and Chef Juan would show up at our door in person. The sea bass was incredible, everything was fresh, plenty of fruit, and again, very reasonably priced. And, we got to experience San Jose at street level rather than as a stop over on the way to somewhere else. Would we stay here again? You bet!!! By the way, if you take the shuttle instead of a cab to or from the airport, you'll pay 18 dollars US; by cab app. 30 bucks US.
