“Good location, nothing fancy, fairly clean and quiet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

The hotel is located couple of blocks from Plaza de Cultura and Teatro Nacional. There are banks, shops, galleries and restaurants nearby. The area seems very safe. The hotel has its own casino and restaurant. Rooms could use some updating but are adequate for the price. Despite being in the center of town I had decent quiet night with not much noise from outside. The free wireless worked for some time and then disappeared. Breakfast was included and omelette I ordered freshly prepared and tasty.

Well what can I say about this hotel? The best thing it has going for it is the price and it's clean. If you are looking for no thrills accommodation that is central to the nightlife, shopping, and restaurants then this is probably your best bet for <$60 a night standard room.

-Charge extra for breakfast/room safe
-free wireless internet
-in house casino (change $ to colonas)
-satellite TV
-showers w/plenty hot water.
-guest friendly
-Staff friendly (Angie/Yuri are the best)
-book tours through them.

Rooms are rather small and very outdated w/noisy aircon units and also might find it hard to sleep if you go to bed early. (noisy outside and in house bar are the main culprits)

You can't go wrong if you are a single male traveler on a tight budget. The Morazan does need a face lift, and a deep cleaning. As mentioned previously, the staff is a big help, especially Angie and the heavy set bellman.
I disagree with the review that says the Morazan is located in a safe neighborhood.
Yes, during the day you are safe;- but in the evening the creeps are roaming the streets looking for soft targets. Spend the $6 and put your money and passport in the room safe. Carry a photo copy of your passport at all times.

Everytime Im passing through San Jose, I stay at the Morazan. San Jose is not really the kind of city you want to stay in more than one night, but if you want to explore the city, the Morazan is a great location. Its one block away from the main shopping area, and is in a pretty safe area. The front desk staff are what make this hotel one of my favorites. Always very helpful, and for those of you who dont speak Spanish, they speak english. The rooms have hot showers, huge bonus if youve been mostly backpacking and staying in hostels. I will mention, however, that, unfortuneatly, you will witness young prostitutes go upstairs with old, American men on a regular basis. Prostitution is legal there. You will see them hanging around there and the Del Rey hotel, down the street. And the streets of San Jose get quite loud at night. If your looking for quiet and romantic, dont stay here. As I indicated, the Morazan is great place, when passing thru. This hotel is also pretty central to all the major bus terminals, and the front desk will call you a cab and explain to them where to take you (if you dont know spanish).

Stayed here Super Bowl weekend. Good location 1 block from Avenida Central and Parque Morzan. Paid $41 a night for a basic single room. Cable Tv, A/C and room safe (extra $6 a day for safe key). Although the carpets seemed to be fairly new and the bathrooms looked like they had been recently refurbished the Hotel looked very worn. Our six room were very clean but smelled of cigarette smoke. Since Hotel has a casino and smoking in public is accepted in Costa Rica. All the common areas reeked of cigarette and cigar smoke. Free use of lobby internet and printer. Hotel also has free wireless internet but you can only get the signal on the 3rd floor. Small casino and betting room. $2 beer at the bar keeps the place jumping with locals on the weekend. Lots of single men use this place for its proximity to the infamous Hotel Del Rey. Overall not a bad experience. Not the Ritz but also not a complete dump. Good value. friendly helpful staff.

  • Liked — General location, price
  • Disliked — cigarette smoke and odors in common areas and rooms
