... or ... if you're exploring San Jose ... stay for a few days. The photographs are accurate. Our flight arrived at 9.30pm. Our shuttle driver (organized by Hotel La Rosa, was waiting for us at the airport with a sign with our name. The (approx 15 minute) drive through the backstreets had us wondering where we would end up,...

My wife and I, with our kids and grandkids, spent our first 2 days at La Rosa before setting off for 10 days around Costa Rica, and then our last day there before flying home. "Peaceful, beautiful and welcoming" are the words which come to mind to describe our stay. I loved the elegant gardens, with their trees, shrubs flowering...

We stayed at Hotel La Rosa twice ....when we arrived in Costa Rica and the night before we left.

This was a great place to spend the night after flying into San Jose late. We took a cab there ($15), and it just took a little while. Nice, simple room, with a good breakfast the next morning. They had a pool, but we hit the road to Rincon de la Vieja.

We booked this hotel for one night because it was fairly close to the airport. We had never been been to Costa Rica before, so after an exciting drive through the city we were very relieved to find the hotel was a quiet place away from the hustle-and-bustle of the city. While making our reservations I mentioned that we planned...

Probably the most important thing a guest can say to us is that they would definitely come back and stay with us! With all the other choices available, this recognition is so very important to us and lets us know that we are getting it right! Vehicle rental in Costa Rica can be a challenge - even for us. If...

We were looking for someplace close to the airport for the first and last night of the trip, but that was also not a chain hotel. This place was great.

We agree! La Rosa is situated 7 km west of the International Airport so as to give guests a relaxing, peaceful and beautiful alternative to San Jose.
