Arrived late in the evening so didn't see much of the area but seemed that there was not much to eat/do around the hotel.

Other than that we met a nice staff at the reception at the hotel. The checkin went fast and easy. Our room was big and spotlessly clean. The bed was huge and super comfy (for our taste). The bathroom was clean and had some soap we could use. The bathroom was a little bit small for our taste but it was ok for a night.

Breakfast was great and was open for a long time. Had a lot of options to choose from and also brown bread.

Pool seemed a little bit old and at a glance looked like it wasn't cleaned that morning.

Other than that I really like that they do care for the environment and do some small changes where they can.

We really enjoyed our three night stay. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. All of the staff were so welcoming and the front desk team were fantastic. Breakfast was really good, with eggs freshly cooked and an excellent selection of other dishes, including fresh fruit and cooked items. We also had three very nice evenings out at great local restaurants and bars within walking distance (especially the really fun Cuban restaurant).

We have stayed here many times. It's a very nice apartment-style hotel. We had a 2 bedroom, 1 bath unit. They also have a small, very tight garage, but it does get your car off the street. Breakfast is good and served outside by the pool. They have an Italian restaurant attached which is very good, but also pretty expensive. It's a short walk to the Park, where their national soccer stadium is located. It's a large park with a lot going on. The drive to the airport in the morning is about 25 minutes.

My friend & I were looking for a cheap, but clean & comfortable place to stay for a little get away after Christmas. We saw Hotel Cristina on Orbitz & chose it, due to having 2 bedroom suites & it was economical. The price includes a complimentary breakfast with continental breakfast items, as well as an omelette station, in addition to the airport transfers! It’s a small hotel with very helpful staff. The front desk staff speaks English, so that was very helpful, since my Spanish is limited. Google Translate helped with the rest! LOL! A special thank u to Adrian, at the front desk. He assisted with getting us a private driver to take us to ride ATV’s at Vista Los Suenos Adventure Park & called us a cab to take us into the downtown area of San Jose. There was also a nice young lady working the front desk who arranged a tour for us, at the last minute, when our plans fell through to go to Tortuga Island. The tour company took us to Tortuga on a catamaran & it included a boxed breakfast, lunch on the beach, & snacks while on the boat. We had a great time!!

The rooms were clean, with basic amenities, including a flat screen TV in each room. We had to ask for more washcloths, since they were limited in what they gave & my friend had her 7 yr old with her, so we needed extra towels/washcloths than what was provided. Unfortunately, the front desk doesn’t have the key to the supply closet, so one day, we didn’t have enough washcloths in the room. The water pressure was spotty, going real strong one minute & real light the next. Overall, the rooms were fine & it was helpful to have a kitchenette in the suite!

As far as the location, the hotel is not a far drive from downtown, but 2 hours away from the beaches & tourist attractions. It’s in a neighborhood that doesn’t have many restaurants nearby, so that was the only drawback.

It was an unpleasant and annoying experience when I came with the booked transportation to check in the hotel.

The driver wanted money for his service and I was convinced the service is still included - like it was when I stayed in the hotel earlier.

I have no problem when I know something like this before, but it isn’t clearly communicated from the hotel. It’s a small line in the email confirmation saying transortation is not included (anymore) and even on the reservation form for the transport there is no mention of the taxi fare of USD 30,— at all. I also had to wait 20 Minutes for the driver to show up even I had to pay a regular fare and could have taken any available taxi right away from the airport. And then some unpleasant discussion with the driver who expected his money…

All in all a very annoying experience after 20 hours travel time and for me the last time staying in this hotel. I always liked the stay and the rooms are good and with a fair price. But it’s kind of sad that the hotel has this new transportation policy and didn’t show any understanding or good will and didn’t waive the transportation fare in this case. So the overall experience was poor!

Our dear guest has been with us several times, last one 25 months ago, and enjoyed the free airport transfer to the Hotel, as a courtesy of the house. Since the Covid 19 started on march 2020 (24 months ago), we couldn't offer this free service any more due to Taxi logistics and costs. We are still offering the taxi reservation service (maybe this point generated the confusion), but the taxi fare has to be paid by the guest, as indicated in the confirmation mail. Please take note that in the actual spiraling costs increase we are still offering very competitive rates. Additionally, other services such as full buffet breakfast, a better Business Wi Fi connection, daily cleaning service are still complementary services.

Our family had a 2 bed 1 bath apartment style unit, and it was a great amount of space. We were there for about a week and felt very homey. The breakfast every morning was absolutely fantastic, and the freshly made omelettes were delicious. Its location is fantastic as a lot of tour companies can pick up from there and a lot of fast food options nearby. The park nearby is very active, and the National soccer stadium is very close by, too.

The staff is absolutely wonderful as well Sergio was amazing, as I had left something very dear to me behind on my last day, and he assured me that it would be reached back home to me and followed through with his promise. Tamara was an amazing help as well. She helped me book a couple of tours and recommended gorgeous sites to see! Overall 100/10 experience at Suites Cristina and I will definitely be staying there next time.

We have stayed at the Cristina several times since it opened in the 90s. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the rates are good, and the staff is very friendly (and so hard-working). The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that the breakfast could have a few more options for folks who don't want gallo pinto every morning.

Always impeccably clean with the friendliest staff. Great location with plenty of amenities nearby. Perfect for medical tourism or enjoying a couple of days in the city. Huge bonus having a Central Park steps away, spent our free time soaking up the Costa Rican sun while enjoying the green space

Although it was pretty obvious that we got one of the older and dated suites (look at the pictures), this place really had everything one could need. We were there two nights in a two bedroom unit. Full kitchen (except no coffee maker), two bathrooms, a/c, hairdryers, safe, digital tv with English option, free parking, good wifi...not luxurious but completely satisfying. The breakfast was ok - not as good as we anticipated based on the previous reviews and we didn't use the pool. It's the right price and I would recommend it.

Our family had a great stay in July, highly recommended aparthotel with breakfast. The excellence continued after we departed and the team let us know we’d left some valuables and cash in a drawer. Six months later I’ve just returned to the hotel and as promised it’s all waiting for me. Huge Thank you to Sergio, Karla and the housekeeping team. Very impressive and very classy all round, this is good place to stay. Pura Vida! Rowan & family, London
