4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Good airport access while also having the Hard Rock, McDonalds, Barock & a few other nice restaurant options within walking distance. Rooms are clean and well kept but kinda tight with no fridge or ice box. Noise from overhead rooms is slightly noticeable to dragging chairs and high heel type noises. The breakfast in the morning has a nice selection of fruit, cereals, eggs, fried plantains, water and juices & great coffee!

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

City Express is in a convenient location. Very close to the airport and close enough to San Jose without getting in the congestion of downtown. Next door is a large food court and other nice restaurants. Cariari Country Club golf course is a walk across the pedestrian bridge. Yes, the hotel is always clean and quiet. Great beds. I always enjoy my stay.
