Nice hotel in San Jose and quite good located. Very central and easy to reach. Not the newist hotel in town but quite good. The rooms are nice and not to small. Everything worked and the beds were ok. The staff are nice and serviceminded. A part of the staff spoke English. The breakfast was nice and tasted good. The hotel offer good value for your money.

Great little hotel in a great location. Close to the zoo and beautiful parks. Rooms are well presented and clean. Nearby shopping and restaurants. Tiny garden in the heart of the city. Service could be inproved but satisfactory.

If you want to stay in a small hotel definitely you won't pass this one. It is an amazing hotel full of great staffs and it is locate in the city of town. It is close to everything, shopping centre, night clubs, bars everything. And if you can't speak Spanish you should definitely stay here because all the staffs can speak English pretty good and they are willing to help.

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we were delighted with the greeting provided by the hotel management and staff when we stayed during early July 2013. The breakfast is very tasty and fresh and is a combination of self serve with a choice of hot food too. We found the rooms to be spacious and very clean, with nice crisp bed linen which I really like. Our bedroom overlooked the private rear garden, which is full of tropical flowers we never see in the UK ! The new owner Francisco was helpful with information about Central America and CR specifically. The rooms are probably ready for a quick makeover, but confident this will happen. Most helpful was David who is the Assistant Manager and found time to explain and book some great local restaurants and entertainment. Finally, almost everything is walking distance from the Hotel, including down town markets or upscale restaurants.

Room Tip: An upstairs en suite bed room overlooking the garden is our recommendation.

We stayed at the Kelkoldi Hotel for two nights the beginning of April 2013. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The breakfasts were good. Fruits, Toast, Cereals, Eggs, Coffee, Juice, etc. You can sit inside or in their fabulous interior courtyard under the trees. The room we stayed in was massive. The shower had hot water. We ha da great view of the street below and the school and mural across the street. They have a wonderful front courtyard/balcony that is a staircase up above the street where you can chill and have wine and watch all the action down below. Very private. I would have liked to have stayed longer. Maybe in the future. Thanks for everything David & Guillermo. Cheers, Dave & Angel. Los Angeles City.

Room Tip: The room we had was the front room upstaris overlooking the main street. If you are a light sleeper...

This small owner managed hotel is in a superb location for visiting the centre of San Jose.This is a city which on my first visit I was not impressed but on revisiting it again when you get under its skin it is a fascinating place with some historic buildings and excellent restaurants. Hotel Kekoldi is a small but very well managed hotel. The rooms are tastefully decorated and are spotless .There is a peaceful garden at the rear and the best rooms overlook it.The breakfast is limited in choice but is more than adequate.Overall an excellent choice for a stopover in San Jose in a small friendly and well managed hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden are very peaceful.

The Kekoldi is a small owner managed hotel well located in the city. The staff went out of their way to see that we had everything we needed. The rooms are pleasantly decorated, spacious and spotlessly clean. Add to this a good breakfast with plenty of choice and the luxury of the peaceful garden and you have an excellent choice for a stay in San Jose.
