One of the worst places I've ever been: small room (double) - we could barely access the closet whose doors were lining against the bed - all furnitures and linings are old, dusty and crappy. Would not go again.

Spent 10 days at this hotel. Alex welcomed me and showed the spacious room. There were 2 queen sized beds; a nightstand between said beds along with reading lamps. The beds were very comfortable allowing a pleasant night's sleep. There was sufficient lighting in the room, but no desk area to do paperwork. A/C was available to quickly cool the...

We stayed here for one night as we transited through San Jose, Alex on the front desk was lovely and really helpful, we stayed on the top floor (I think he may have upgraded us!) as we had a lovely large bedroom with a large rooftop balcony where we wcould look out over San Jose. Given the central location the...

Our room stank and there was mold in the bathroom and even in the bedroom. We actually were willing to put that aside as the staff seemed really nice and helpful but unfortunately we got fooled by them: in the morning we asked for the best way to get to the airport. The guy at the reception offered to order...

Staff was helpful, and the breakfast was tasty. The hotel is on walking distance from many interesting objects. I had an attic room with small window closed by dense paper. It's ok when you stay one night as me but awful if you like to stay more.

Since we came back early from Corcovado to San Jose our original hotel wasn't avaliable for one night, so we stayed almost next door at this hotel. The room wasn't too big, just enough room for our luggage. Bathroom was ok. Breakfast was good. The noiselevel of the trains which runs nearby was pretty high in the room!

Located in a neighbourhood which is not far away from the city center, this hotel is a place with very different rooms, maye being a consequence of using every square inch available, mine was small and without any daylight, having only a mock window to the staircase. Other rooms are much nicer, but this place is absolutely ok, if you...

THIS IS A WINNER and most especially if you can get a nice good deep discount online. You may have to wait until the last minute to get up to 40 percent off but you will be glad you did. Staff are warm, friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and modern and stylish. Complimentary breakfast 6 to 9 am....

We stayed here for only one night after we first arrived in Costa Rica. The service was great, everyone was superfriendly! The breakfast was very good (fruits, yoghurt, toast, coffee) and the rooms were tidy.
