“Average facility, but great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

The place is not spectacular, but it was affordable, bug-free and comfortable. The people working the front desk were very friendly and helpful, so we felt well taken care of. The people at breakfast are fun to talk to and also very friendly. The only negatives about the place are the noise you can hear at night from outside from cars and honking, and parking I would imagine is not very easy if the place is crowded. We had to leave our rental car on the street out front, and in the morning there was a small dent on the back of the car. We also noticed that night that a small group of guys had congregated outside right behind the car and were leaning on it. Not really the hotel's fault, but definitely something to note about the surrounding area. Overall, we had a good experience, though.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

After the heat and humidity it was wonderful to wake up nice and cool this morning. We arrived late last night, almost 9:00pm. Check-in was easy. Unfortunately we were also in a part of town where the taxi driver felt compelled to point out which directions were 'peligroso' (dangerous) and which were not. Later we grabbed some chicken from a local parilla (grill) and two soft drinks. We didn't feel unsafe in any way, but then we've been traveling in Latin America for awhile.

The room itself was decent and clean. Our main issue was that the bed was a rather thin piece of foam on plywood. Possibly the hardest surface I've ever slept on outside of tent camping.

There is a restaurant downstairs and a bakery across the street.

This place is fine in a pinch, but if you plan ahead pick somewhere else. See my reviews for where we ended up in San Jose.

Nice, cheap place only a couple of roads to la coca cola bus station, the rooms are good for the price Aswell the rest of the hotel! The reception is helpful but better try in Spanish. Good if you have to be in San Jose and don't wont to spend a lot of money!!!
