I should preface this by stating that I haven't actually spent any time in San Jose OUTSIDE of the Don Carlos.
We booked our trip through Costa Rica Sun Tours, and they took care of making these arrangements for us, but I can absolutely say...More
Let me start by saying Don Carlos still offers a clean and quaint atmosphere. I have stayed at the Don Carlos in the past and just loved it (you can read my past review). However, the friendliness has left the building. Ironically, there were several...More
Under normal circumstance, I would’ve given this hotel a decent rating, however, several events unfolded that ruined an otherwise perfect vacation. Upon arriving to the airport at 4am, I realized that the camera I took out of my bag the night before to take a...More
This was out second time staying at Hotel Don Carlos. We love it! Old and charming hotel in a nice part of San Jose. Great place to stay when you arrive in Costa Rica and a nice place to stay the night before you leave...More
I stayed at Hotel Don Carlos this time and was extremely satisfied. The room was clean and the ceiling fan was more than enough. Breakfast was hot and delicious. The Hotel is away from the busier streets in this area and at night it was...More

I think 10 am would be ok. We walked around in the late afternoon early evening and there were plenty of people around. In the later evening there were a number of prostitutes on the street corners so it seemed quite unsavoury. Be careful about taxis. We were told how much it would cost to get to a place and I handed over the correct amount and the guy argued with me and I just paid the extra amount as I was feeling too vulnerable in a foreign country with no one around. I caught the taxi from the hotel. Maybe get them at the hotel to confirm price first. I told them of the experience at the hotel and they acted like I was an idiot because they had told me how much to pay.
