Cocoon Hotel
Ranked #55 of 77 Hotels in San Jose
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Summary: Great location, friendly staff and a very pleasant and comfortable stay.

A bit of Detail: My girlfriend and I stayed 2 days at the Cocoon when we arrived to San Jose, then travelled to the Pacific coast. At the end of our vacation we were back at San Jose and we decided to stay there again for another 2 nights.

The place is really clean and the lounge area is very welcoming. Chill music and the modern open space made for a nice atmosphere. Wifi worked great in the lounge and our room and was included in the price.

At one point we needed a taxi to go just out of town to a mountain-side restaurant. After helping us make the reservation (we don't speak Spanish), the guy working there walked a few blocks with me to a taxi station and negotiated on my behalf for the best price.

Based on service, location and comfort, this is the best price-to-value that you can get.

Room Tip: We stayed at 2 different ones, both were good.

I had a stay in this hotel for 2 nights and i have to tell you all, that i was positively surprised how stylish and comfortable this place is, and the price was just 50$ per night! AMAZING! The hotel is just 100 meters away from the big bus station and very close to the old traditional town center. We enjoyed very much the big lounge area with a lot of plants and flowers everywhere. The bamboo style gives you a feeling of escaping from the city and back to the nature! The rooms are very nice designed and very clean. There was also a very big flat screen in our room and the staff was realy very very friendly. Also the general manager called Ximena helped us with very good tips how to explore the surrounding are. Big thank you to the Cocoon team! We will come back for sure!!!! pura vida

This Hotel is a jewel in Downtown San José. Has great prices and the quality is like staying in a 4 star hotel! I stayed in a room with A/C, 32 inch TV, great bathroom amenities and the best its decor and ambience. The lobby has a great bar and friendly staff. The food from the Deli has very reasonable pricing for travellers with a budget! I come often to San Jose and definetelly their rates are the best in town! No better place for relaxing in downtown!

The rooms are amazing and very comfortable. The beds are just exquisite.

The stuff is super friendly and they always guided me around the best options to have a great time in Costa Rica.

Very close to the capital city, pratically walking distance from everywhere.

Thanks guys!! I had a great time!
