This is a quiet place out from town. If one is looking for a stop over and leaving the next day then the Rincon is a good place. Meal are just average. Staff is below average. Any thing that was needed was never done with a smiley face and had to be forced. Not like the rest of Costa Rica that we experienced in ten days. I will stay down town to be closer to things. It is close to the huge soccer stadium if that is your thing.

Room Tip: Small hotel on side street. all quiet and fair sized

Clean, pleasant, comfortable and attractive. If you need to spend the night in San Jose this is a pleasant stop. The will pick you up at the airport with a name card and bring you to the hotel $30 service. We arrived at 1 am, I was so happy we arrange for a pick up with them instead of trying to drive our rental car. The rental car agency (Vamos) brought the car to us a 9am while the kids enjoyed breakfast in the lovely buffet.

Room Tip: ask for a pick up ahead of time - so nice to have someone great you after many hours of flying have them show you how to use the AC in the rooms before they leave (different than any I have seen in the states)

We are two professional adults on vacation in Costa Rica for the first time in June 2013. If you wanted to experience the Costa Rican hotel without relying on the familiar US names such as Marriott or Hyatt, try out Rincon Del Valle in San Jose Costa Rica. The hotel was small although not a "boutique" hotel. It had 41 rooms. The rooms were small but quite modern with coffee maker, flat screen TV, and remote controllable air conditioner. It's located near but not in the downtown area of San Jose. This meant that it's close but not in the middle of the hustle bustle of downtown. We felt safe enough to walk to downtown (in the day time) and all the round the neighborhood in the early evening to visit a supermarket and a few restaurants nearby. We spoke highschool Spanish and could get by. If you didn't speak Spanish and/or stuck out as tourists, you might not want to wander near the big park across the street. The staff was super nice. All staff were nice but we got to know Allan quite well. Allan arranged for our excursions at reasonable prices. The room rate was reasonable. The included breakfast was a real happy surprise. We could order (for free) omelette or scrambled eggs in addition to what's available. Some day, we even had a-la-carte breakfast (made to order). To add to it, the trip to the airport (not from the airport) was free - a $30 worth. We definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Upstairs are safer as you could crack the windows for fresh air.

Excellent small hotel. Very clean, comfortable, and spacious rooms. Free wireless (with decent bandwidth) was available throughout the building. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the desk staff spoke good English. The restaurant was good, if somewhat limited in choice.

There are no elevators, but it's only two storeys. My only minor complaint was that English TV channels were limited to mainstream US channels. BBC World or CNN would have been appreciated.

I would certainly choose to stay here again.

Dear guest, thank you for your comments about our hotel. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry that you could not have access to the international channels, our service provider must have been making maintenance during your stay and did not notify us about it, we do have access and is complimentary to all the principal English spoken TV Channels such as CNN, ABC, CBS and more. On site we have an elevator that is available for our guests, specially used for handicap or to help with the luggage. We would like to thank you again and we hope to be able to have you as one of our guests again in the near future.
