We needed a hotel for one night in this area for an appointment. This hotel was excellent - spotless rooms, pleasant staff, free parking, excellent breakfast that came with the room, attractive lobby and dining/bar area, plain but attractive rooms, firm, comfortable beds with soft sheets, and no outside noise, so it was easy to sleep. The area itself is busy and commercial, but the hotel was quiet and perfect. We did have dinner, but that was just O.K. The hotel is reasonably priced for what one gets.

This is a delightful little hotel with everything I needed for my adventure. It’s clean, they have internet and a coffee maker. The shower is clean and has shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. They don’t skimp on towels or electrical outlets. The restaurant has an excellent menu especially the Aztec Soup. This is my first trip to San Jose and if I return I would stay here again.

Large well appointed room. Excellent shower. Good toiletries. Small basic fitness center. Breakfast is a small but perfectly fine buffet. Eggs, rice & beans, papaya, pineapple, watermelon, toast and very good coffee. Dinner at their restaurant was very good.

excellent price /value; central location near Sabana Park; good dinner value; easy access; friendly staff; well appointed rooms, close to good value restaurants such as Machu Pichu. Nice view from the window. In the restaurant i had a good 'casado' con lomo de res, ask for the home made spicy sauce

The third floor room was roomy and well maintained. The large windows provided a bright feel with shades for privacy. The room could use a more comfortable chair and a room safe at eye level instead one that is bolted to the floor. Bathroom is equally roomy and well maintained. There is a restaurant on site for breakfast and dining - all good. There are also some local restaurants nearby. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful. The main street, Central Ave, is a block away with its many shops and a 20 minute walk to the center of the city. A supermarket / dept store is a few blocks away. Overall, good value

The owners have obviously made a very good effort at developing this building into a nice little hotel, but they made a few choices that are very poor, yet easily remedied. First the good... The hotel is very clean. Everything seemed to work well, though the AC in my room was very noisy. The beds and pillows quite comfortable. The bathroom was very small but perfectly fine. Had a large flat screen TV and a nice view from the 4th floor. All desk persons were very nice. I did not try the restaurant. Two small issues are the safe and the lift are from around 1940. The safe is an old key type that is mounted to the floor in the closet (see pic). The key didn't bother me too much, but the floor? Seriously?? And the lift is actually fast and works well if no one else is using it. It's tiny with 4 manual push buttons and no indicators at all. But in their defense, it's a small hotel and a modern lift would be costly. Personally, I find it acceptable, but some will not. Now the three issues I hated (two are ridiculous)... First there is no fridge, even though there was a perfect area in my tiny room for one (table pic). Second, there was no tissue in the room. Third, and the worst, there is no normal toilet paper! They installed those horrid sheet dispensers found occasionally in public restrooms (see last pic). Again, seriously?? I had to go out to buy my own tissue and toilet paper! Ownership made a conscious choice to use those dispensers and not provide tissue, and I found that beyond ridiculous. I REALLY wanted to rate 4 bubbles, but simply cannot because of the toilet paper idiocy. If they choose to provide normal necessities in the future, then I would highly recommend this hotel.

Muchas Gracias por su opinión, todas sus indicaciones so nde gran valor para mejorar en nuestro servicio y calidad. En respuesta a su comentario le comentamos que efectivamente nuestro elevador es tipo mecánico del año 2000, el cual es muy seguro . Estamos en el proceso de cambiar todas nuestras cajas de seguridad por las nuevas digitales, en la que no se utilice con llave , solamente con el código de 6 dígitos. Las habitaciones categoría standart no cuentan con mini refrigeradora, es un beneficio exclusivo de las habitaciones family suite y premium suite. Durante la pandemia se buscó el beneficio y evitar que los clientes manipularan todo el papel higiénico y quedara contaminado para un nuevo cliente y se realizó a cambio de dispensador individual. Siempre pensamos en el mejor beneficio y comodidad para nuestros clientes, esperamos seguir mejorando y que ustedes , nuestros clientes se sientan super satisfechos con los cambios que día a día realizamos para su beneficio.

Comfortable, modern boutique hotel. Had 4th floor room with view of mountains. Best sleep I've had in 10 days - king size bed really comfortable. If you need to recharge your electronics, no worries here. Our room had at least 8 US-style wall outlets. Nespresso-type coffee maker with excellent Costa Rican coffee pods. AC worked fine and is quiet - once we found its remote control. Breakfast is traditional Costa Rican - fried plantains, gallo pinto (rice and beans etc) scrambled eggs, fresh fruit. Not a large selection but well done.

This hotel is probably adequate for a short overnight. Four floors with one small, slow elevator. Breakfast was chaos on the one day that I tried to eat, as there were no clean tables and barely any food. Our first night our bed was maybe a double--pretty small. Clean. Close to a very good restaurant, Aqui Es. The only good area to sit and have a beer is at the entrance, outside. A great alternative at a lesser cost is Hotel Autentico, about three blocks away.

I stayed here as part of an Overseas Adventure Travel tour of CR. I came 2 nights early, and had a very small room (bathroom was incredibly small). Room was on third floor (left after exiting the elevator). Bed was comfortable king size, wifi strong, and good air conditioning. I left for 3 nights at Drake Bay, before returning for 1 night. This second room, on the 2nd floor, was huge - with a little kitchenette. Again, comfortable bed, quiet, large bathroom, and good air conditioning. The last night at the end of the tour was room 314. Large room with a small kitchenette… but paper thin walls with the adjoining room. I only needed the room for 10 hours as my return home flight was to leave at 1am. Unfortunately the adjoining room had 3 very loud women who had returned from a shopping trip to Panama and had to call each of their relatives on their speaker phone… so no sleep before my flight. Breakfast was traditional CR (scrambled eggs, rice & beans, some type of meat (differed each day), and a small bowl of fresh fruit. This hotel does not have COVID requirements, so i had breakfast outside on their terrace in the parking lot. The first two days, they brought me the meal. The second, breakfast was a buffet, so i took outside. The third visit, i didnt have breakfast. The front desk workers were polite but did not go out of the way to be helpful.

I arrived in San Jose three days before my tour began. I was disappointed at the hotel because all the reviews said there was a very good restaurant in the hotel, but that was not the case. They only served breakfast and breakfast was rather meager. The rooms are small, and the bathrooms very small. Everything was clean, and the bed was alright for me, but I heard others complain. The location is far from other restaurants, so you need a taxi. The hotel is close to Sabanna Park which is a nice place to walk with a small museum in the park. It is not far from the airport. I used Uber to go downtown and it cost $2.80. You need to sit in the front because they are not legal.
