“Great Stay in San Jose”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Wonderful staff, delicious breakfast, easy walk to San Jose. Nice place for tea across the street. Especially liked our small garden area off the room. The room was upstairs across from the open courtyard. It was spacious immaculate and quiet. San Jose is a one night stop and this is a good bed and breakfast type place to stay. I can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff and the introduction to Costa Rican breakfast. It's was a great experience. There isn't much to see or do in the immediate area. Going to San Jose is the best bet. Try the Opera House, the Central Market, The Gold Museum for an interesting excursion.

My sister and I stayed here after a week of driving around Costa Rica. It was a fabulous destination to end our trip before heading to the airport the next day. We were able to walk easily to the Teatro Nacional and see a little bit of San Jose. The service at the hotel was excellent. We dined at the restaurant there and enjoyed our meal and our waiter, Erick, was fabulous.

Immaculate, very attractive rooms, a small but varied menu of very good food in the restaurant, excellent service throughout. The hotel is somewhat out of the way, with little access to shopping, etc., but it is a short cab ride to the center of the city. We would certainly stay at this comfortable, reasonably priced hotel again, and recommend it highly.

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your comments about our property. Our wooden floors, handmade furniture and surrounding tropical gardens make each and every room cozy and comfortable. As you have mentioned, we have a small menu at our Cyrano`s restaurant, however, you can find international cuisine but also can experience real Costa Rican food such as black soup, Arroz con pollo, tres leches, etc.
We are located 20 minutes walking from San José downtown and its main attractions. However, near Le Bergerac you will find a shopping mall, international restaurants, supermarket (all within walking distance)
We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Costa Rica!

I stayed in the Hotel Bergerac meanwhile 5 times ( usually once a year for a stay of one week each) and it has been always a pleasure to be there. The staff and service team is very friendly, always helpfull and anticipating what is needed. I like the rooms,very clean and nicely decorated, especially those rooms that go out to the mountains and have a balcony are really nice. I meanwhile really feel like being at home whenever I am there and that is maybe the bext that one can say about a hotel. By the way: not to forget the restaurant where the (included) breakfast is served ( love that gallo pinto) and where one can have a nice dinner served by the friendly and attentive staff.

We visited San Jose for a few nights before leaving on a tour. We arrived mid-afternoon and were able to get massages in our room within an hour of our arrival. We had dinner at the hotel that evening and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meal. Our room was on the second floor at the back with a small patio. The location was peaceful.

While the hotel is simple and quaint, the hotel staff were outstanding and very eager to make sure that our stay was the best possible. These employees went out of their way to help us out: Lilliam Vega, Sayra Torres, Euclides O'Campos, Erik and Kevin. We were treated almost as though we were the only people that they needed to take care of! They made excellent recommendations for dinner out and where to go shopping. When we asked about going on a tour, they were very knowledgeable and made an excellent recommendation for the "combo" tour - a visit to a local coffee plantation, visit to Poas volcano, and La Paz Waterfalls. When I had camera troubles, they were on the phone trying to find a place where I could get someone to help out.

Should we pass through San Jose again, we would not hesitate to stay again!

We stayed here for one night between excursions to Arenal and Manuel Antonio. Service was great. Breakfast was wonderful. We liked the location, a bit east of downtown San Jose and not far from Mall San Pedro.

We stayed here for one night on a stop over when transiting through San Jose. Like previous reviewers have said, the rooms are simple and elegant, and cover the basics although they are somewhat small. Management have done well to keep the French colonial theme going, which gives it quite a bit of character.

We had a room that was street side, so unfortunately noise was a problem (although this is not unique to this hotel). Check in process was easy, and staff were professional.

Recommended as a place to stay if you are not after a large, commercial hotel.

Dear guest:

Thank you very much for considering Le Bergerac during your stay in San José.
The elegant warmth of wood floors give each room an atmosphere of tranquility and elegance. The Standard rooms are the smallest rooms in the hotel. Our Superior, Deluxe and Superior are the biggest rooms as they have either one or two queen or king size beds each. These categories also have a private patio or terrace.
Our staff is more than happy to provide assistance to our guests to ensure a relaxing experience at the hotel.
When coming back to San José, please consider Le Bergerac.

Hasta pronto!
