“Very accommodating”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

My daughter and I stayed here for 13 days, my daughter got some plastic surgury done. This hotel was a little hidden gem in san jose, costa rica. The staff were awesome, the rooms were cleaned daily and your privacy was very much respected. Anyone going to san jose costa rica for a medical vacation will not be disappointed in this little paradise while healing.

After reading all the review of La Sabana we decided how bad can it be for $75 a night. Well, not only is it not bad it was really wonderful.
Our flight arrived an hour early and we were out of the airport in no time, so we were early for our free pickup. Not a problem, there were so many helpful people waiting outside the airport doors, called the pickup and they were there within 10 miniutes.
The people at the front desk, both morning and night could not have been friendlier or more helpful. As you arrive you are asked what you would like to drink as you check in. Our room was clean and had pretty original artwork on the bedroom walls. The kitchen is a bit old, but the fridge works as does the stove top. I did not try the oven.
We used the computer room which is behind a beautiful stained glass door. Breakfast is self serve and you can eat both indoors or out. The pool area is so pretty that we chose to eat outside. There is plenty to eat for breakfast, and you can have eggs cooked to order. There was even a change in menu on each of the 4 days that we spent there, that was more impressive than some of the fancier hotels that we stayed in.
There is a bit of street noise in the morning, but I wonder if one stays on the far side of the hotel if that is a bit quieter. When you make your reservation you can ask.
La Sabana park was really nice to walk through, and it is right near the new stadium which is amzaing to see. If you choose to go into the center of town, the taxi ride is inexpensive.
Last but not least, diagnolly across the street from the hotel is the top rated restaurant in Costa Rica, Park Cafe. The restaurant has only 5 tables so make a reservation. Richard, the chef and owner is a 2 star Michelin chef and the meal is incredible. there is also a nice Italian restaurant around the corner.
All in all, aparthotel La Sabana is a great buy.

We are so glad you had a great time in Costa Rica! It sounds like everything worked out from the time you touched ground until you left! It is an honor to have been part of such a wonderful trip. We also love Park Cafe and are glad you had a chance to try them. Hope to see you very soon!

Centrally located, 100 meters from the central park. The rooms surround a courtyard, centered by the swimming pool. A comfortable breakfast room, which serves a great breakfast. The staff is eager to please the guests with warm & friendly service. Rooms are clean & comfortable, with many having a kitchen. Bath rooms are small, but spotless.

Room Tip: 3 sizes of rooms, all located equally

I stayed at his hotel for a week. the hotel staff very friendly and gracious. this hotel in a very good location right next to la sabana park. Very safe area. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance or you can take a taxi where you need to go. The rooms are cleaned daily and the service is very good for the price you have to pay. The only thing I
had to stay 2 extra days they could only accodomate me for 1 because of Hurricane Irene. I could not fly back to the united states on that specific day. It was not the hotels fault but the best the could for me in that situation. And I did appreciate there efforts.
But when I come back to costa rica ill will be defienly staying there again.

The location of this hotel is very useful for travelers that like to stay away from San Jose's busy downtown. They offered us free transfer from SJO airport (have to make arrangements ahead of arrival date). Additionally, the accommodations and breakfast are very good value.
They have a pool and nice garden - perfect for relaxing after a long flight!
