"Excellent place to stay. Wonderful staff and food."
We had a wonderful time. Hotel was close enough to go into the city and yet far enough to enjoy life in Costa Rica without all the noise and business. The staff was amazing!! Loved having a balcony in our room to overlook the grounds and the city at night. If you have time definitely look into doing the Poas Volcano, Doka Coffee Estate and Waterfall Garden Tours. Would definitely go back if have the chance!
My husband and I stayed here for the last few nights of our honeymoon so we would be able to explore the city and be closer to activities like coffee tours and volcanos. The hotel was nice, it was clean and the front desk staff were kind. It is in a business district so there are a lot of business men and women at the hotel and in the plaza. The plaza the hotel is located in has many restaurants which was convenient and its within walking distance of a huge mall where we caught a movie one night. I don't have any complaints about the hotel itself but our last night there was not great. A restaurant across the plaza turned into some kind of night club (it was Friday night) and the music was so loud we could hear it in our room and could not get any sleep until it finally turned off at 2am. It was our last night in Costa Rica and our flight left early in the morning so it was REALLY frustrating that we weren't able to get any rest.

I needed a place to stay short term and this little place was perfect. My only complaint was that there was no a/c. There was a ceiling fan, but this time of year the weather can get pretty hot ( for me anyway). The window did open , but there was no screen and it was right next to the parking lot in front so there was no privacy. We asked for an extra fan which they were happy to offer. There is a nice small pool and free continental breakfast. The location is safe and a block from the bus stop.
From check in to check out, the proprietor Bjorn and his staff (Al and Roberto) were excellent hosts. While it may not have the coziness of a smaller bed and breakfast (it has 10 rooms), the accommodations are spacious, clean and very inviting after a long day of touring.
Breakfasts are very good and not to be missed!
The location is very convenient to shopping, highway access and nice restaurants.
Will stay again when in the San Jose area.
We spent five nights at the Don Francisco, it was our second stay. We chose this aparthotel because of it's location in Escazu where we had a lot of appointments. This is an upscale neighbourhood but the rate is very reasonable and is made even more so by the fact that you have your own kitchen to make meals. There is secure parking and the internet works fairly well when compared to most San Jose hotels. The room was cleaned every day and the staff were friendly and helpful.
On a hillside overlooking San Jose, the affluent suburb of Escazu is 9 km (6 mi) west of the nation’s capital. Several embassies are stationed here and, over the past decade, a growing number of expatriates from North America and Europe have come to call Escazu home. English is commonly spoken in the area’s many upscale bars and restaurants.
