We had a kitchenette with one bedroom. It was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The attractive pool area made it a pleasant place to sit outdoors to read, socialize, swim or get some sun. A little oasis in the middle of a noisy city. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was delicious. I look forward to staying there...

My husband and I stayed here on our way home. We flew into San Jose from Montezuma and left the next afternoon to return to the US. It was a beautiful place to stay even for one night.

The lobby, breakfast room and pool areas are truly beautiful. Everywhere , well cared or plants and hand thrown pottery add to the homey feel. The staff is helpful, friendly and bilingual. Our room was adequate but quite dark. If one can, I suggest asking for a room on the second floor, and or facing the pool. And breakfast was...

Thank you for your review!! So glad you enjoyed our ambiance!!! Years ago, when we set off to re-decorate the hotel, we envisioned a "small jewel in the middle of the city". One project lead to another and to another!!! Everywhere you look you will find murals, mosaic work, watercolor paintings, ceramic pieces.... Three main characters have played a crucial...

We stayed here for one night on our way to the coast. It was a superb option in a quiet area. The staff was friendly and very helpful. the breakfast was very tasty and handmade. The transport from the hotel was a great option and we had the car delivered the next day.

While pretty basic, Apartotel La Sabana is comfortable, relatively quiet, and a pretty good value for the price. it is reasonably close to the airport and to a major mall, which was helpful since the airline lost our luggage and we needed to buy new clothes. The only significant problem was that we had booked the room through booking.com, which...

We understand that after a long flight, especially if things did not exactly work as planned with airlines, all you need and want is to rest and re-charge!

Really enjoyed our stay at the Apartotel La Sabana; friendly staff, good breakfast with variety of fresh fruit, eggs made to order, hot food options, juices, coffee/tea/chocolate, yogurt/cereals, etc included in price, located in a quiet environment close to a large park and approximately 2km from city centre.

This aparthotel is good value for money. It is well equipped with excellent cooked breakfast. It is far from the heart of town (museums, etc) and the reception staff not helpful with information or problem solving.
