We stayed here for two nights before getting back home. The guy who welcomed us was very friendly. The room we were given was very noisy due to aircons that are on the roof of the building. I would suggest you take a room on the first floor away from the street. We asked to change rooms after one night due to the noise, the lady behind the desk was not very cooperative. She first told us the hotel was full, which was obviously not the case. Then she asked her manager and suddenly is was no problem. This same lady was very grumpy and did not show a can do attitude. When we asked her whether there would be a pool anywhere in San Jose she just said no and not helped us any further. Really wonder why she works there. Rest of the staff was very friendly and willing to help though. Restautant is also good, so is the service in the restaurant. They have a free shuttle service to the airport. We used this, however it was 30 minutes late. Not very reliable. The pool is not for swimming (it is very small).

We stayed here on the first night of our Fly and Drive Costa Rica vacation, arriving late after weather-related travel delays and negotiating horrendous rush hour traffic from the airport. Though modest on the outside this hotel is a minimalist gem inside. We were immediately made welcome by friendly staff, and shown to a tastefully furnished quiet room, next to the little open-air spa. A good dinner, night's sleep and pleasant breakfast left us well prepared for our drive up into the mountains the next day.

Room Tip: Try to get good directions, it is on a side street and a bit hard to find.

I stayed at this hotel one night on a group tour just before flying home. I can't speak to value, since I did not pay for the room, but I can say that I felt very comfortable and even pampered there. The hotel is modern in style and conveniences. My room was attractive and clean, and my bed was very comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious and the service was attentive and pleasant. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: My second-floor room was very quiet.

This is not a hotel where you spend your holiday but one where you spend a few nights in transit. We stayed three times for a total of four nights during a tour of Costa Rica. The staff were always helpful, including the room maid who found the mobile phone we had left behind, and cheerful. The room was very well equipped and the meals were good. What more can you want?

There was a big park nearby to stretch one legs and a local supermarket and pharmacy if you needed last minute supplies.

This was a lovely hotel and very ecologically conscience. They had energy saving measures, eco soaps, etc, easy access recycle bins and a great atmosphere. The hotel is indoor/outdoor with open air corridors (and an open-air jaccuzi spa, great for star gazing). The rooms are a bit dimly lit, but if you turn on the lights over the bed its not bad. They have gated parking, free wifi, a small gym and a larger gym a block down the street. Several restaurants were walkable (We ate at Padrisimos, a quaint 'Mexican' place with great food) and the restaurant inside the hotel is nice as well, though we didn't eat there so don't know the prices. The staff is excellent - I'd recommend this hotel. Its right off a major highway as well, so its easy to get in and out of.

One night stay before drive around Costa Rica. Very clean room and spa. Excellent dinner in restaurant. Very helpful front desk and waitstaff. Only difficulty was finding it without street names or driving directions on web site.
