“Good second choice”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

I was moved to this hotel when my original hotel was full.
The staff here were great and accommodating and I had no issues. I was placed in the room across from the check in area and it was really loud. But checking closed at 10:00pm or something like that and then it was fine.

From was clean and spacious and had hot water. He gardens were beautiful.

Room Tip: Maybe not across from the front desk if you want to go to bed early.

The location of this hotel is really close to the historic downtown area, and the staff is very helpful and accommodating. For the price, its a great value and I would definitely stay there in the future!

Friendly family run small hotel with personal service. Excellent location right in city centre near Plaza Morazán. Good breakfast. No real frills but good value for money. All in all good choice for a city centre stay

David you are fabulous, thanks so much for you help and your beautiful smile. Kekoldi is a not a pristine 5 star hotel, but it was perfect for my San Jose stay. Reasonably priced and a great location.

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.
