We stayed here at the beginning and at the end of our three weeks tour of pura vida through Costa Rica. It was a great stay with much help, good advices and and a perfect last night with life music at the restaurant.

Great location hotel in center of San Jose. Close to museums and shopping. The hotel is clean and has a popular restaurant where you can people watch on the walking street in front of hotel. I enjoyed my stay and will return.

It’s not a new hotel, but it’s very clean. The bed and pillows where excelente. But the principal for me was the location right in the center of city town. The food in the restaurant was so goooood and staff where very king.
