Our family of 6 rented two separate rooms for a 5-night stay at this hotel. I had chosen it because it is close to La Sabana Park, a great place for our kids to play at the end of the day. (The huge park, a welcome breath of fresh air in the city, had some 4-5 playgrounds, a duck pond,... More

This apartment was ideal for our family of 5. There's even a laundry facility on site, cleaning us up towards the end of our week. Location is central to downtown, easy drive in our rental car to the museums and central market. We walked a super market for incidentals. The staff are fantastic, and the prices were the best we...

It's the people here that make the apartotel a great place. Especially, Miguel at the front desk, and the sweet ladies that make breakfast daily. Having a little kitchen is also very convenient.

Room (apartment) needs a little updating, pool was chilly and somewhat secluded for San Jose. Other than that, it was a safe, nice hotel with a great breakfast for our family. I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying overnight. Free shuttle to and from airport.

A beautiful place which lot of paintings and fine art, that makes you feel at ease.

Besides the room being very tight, the bathroom had a terrible odor whenever the vent switch was turned on. There was a strong waste smell like their plumbing is not vented properly. Very pleasant staff and decent inclusive breakfast.
