The hotel was perfectly located and the staff was exceptionally nice, polite, courteous, and helpful. The room was large/spacious and clean. The staff, also, was extremely helpful in directing us to where we wanted to go, informing us as to what place we should see, how to get there, and other places we may find of interest. Our room was always kept clean. In returning to San Jose, we would not hesitate to stay here again and would gladly recommend this place to our friends.
Once you get to San Jose, its nice to come across such well kept, clean hotel with a staff that makes your stay very pleasant. The hotel is under renovation so we requested a room a bit higher than to avoid the noise. They accommodated us right away, upgraded our room to a suite and had the best nights sleeping piece and quiet. Staff, everyone from the porter to the ladies who maintain the rooms, servers on the restaurant, everyone is lovely. The food on the second floor for breakfast is delish. Great pinto and scramble eggs. They even got me natilla as requested. What a great experience. Worth every penny. I will come back !!!

I've stayed in numerous hotels in San Jose and other parts of Costa Rica, but this was my first time staying at the Balmoral, so I didn't know what to expect. It's one of the pricier hotels I've stayed at, but in my opinion, it was well worth what I payed. My room was spacious, well-kept, clean, and very comfortable. I never had problems getting hot water or good water pressure. All of the appliances worked; even the safe was easy to use. Friendly English-speaking staff. Nice restaurant on Avenida Central with a good atmosphere and fun for people watching. The included breakfast was decent, though it's a shame it ends at 9 AM and not 10 AM. This is the best hotel I've stayed at in San Jose for the price, and I would definitely stay here again.
This is the first time i used Holiday Aurora in San Jose, and it was a pleasant surprise. Sometimes I need parking , and the staff was very efficient , and on time w my car leaving early in the morning
We stayed at this wonderful little place in downtown San Jose. We origionally booked an economy room and then decided to upgrade because it has a newer area also. Well we had a beautiful room on the second floor corner. But I must say after looking into the open rooms all thru the hotel, they are all beautifully decorated. We had a nice breakfast by the pool. The pool was thouroghly cleaned the day we were there and the hotel is clean.
There are small restaurants all around and only two blocks from a nice park center. Wear comfy shoes because the sidewalks need some care. Watch out for traffic. It is safe during the day but I would stay in at night. Just because everything is closed around the hotel.
We loved it here and will be happy to stay there again.
Great place in the San Jose area. The hotel is quite clean. Free breakfast in 4th floor restaurant. Lots of taxis and buses available. Very hospitable staff. When we leave Costa Rica Oct 30th we'll stay again.
