Buen Hotel en el centro de San Jose

Posted 21-Oct-2016
Pros: Su ubicación ya que me interesaba conocer los atractivos del centro de San Jose. También me gusto su diseño, instalaciones, calidad y servicio.
Cons: El trafico en la zona en ciertos horarios puede ser complicado. Es una zona muy bulliciosa y congestionada.
Location: Hotel ubicado en el centro de San Jose a pocas cuadras de la catedral, asi como de varios museos y parques, rodeado de muchas tiendas y restaurants.
Moderno y agradable hotel ubicado en el corazón mismo de la ciudad de San Jose, en una zona bulliciosa rodeado de tiendas, restaurants, oficinas, museos, iglesias, parques, edificios, etc. Ideal para turistas interesados en explorar caminando el centro de la ciudad y hospedarse en un hotel de buena calidad, con habitaciones limpias, confortables y en muy buen estado, además de un buen servicio del personal en general.

Only come here if your spending more than one nigh

Posted 14-Oct-2016
If you need a hotel for the night before you catch a flight then I would recommend staying in Alajuela. It's closer cheaper and more convenient to the airport. Downtown San Jose is about 30-45 min drive depending on traffic, and there will always be traffic. On top of that the hotel charges $35 each way to shuttle. You could prob get a cab cheaper I found one for $20 but on the way out I couldn't. Another option is the bus which is super cheap if your more adventurous. Hotel is modern, nice and close to everything. The beds were not great, I had a hard time sleeping, and I like a hard mattress but when you can't get your pillow to conform it's going to be very uncomfortable.

Very good hotel

Posted 12-Oct-2016
Location: Location is great to see the city center and with the pedestrian walk ways just out the front door makes walking, shopping great.
I have stay here before and it was very nice before but it is even better now. I know they were going through renovation in the last year but it seems that night they also got new beds and linens, not sure what it was but I was impressed. The staff is always pleasant and helpful.

Great hotel in the heart San Jose

Posted 17-Sep-2016
Pros: Staff, cleanliness, room size, comfort, parking, free and delicious breakfast.
Location: Walking distance to all historic sites in center city San Jose, museums etc.
Modern hotel, large rooms, comfy beds, really friendly and helpful staff in the heart of center city San Jose and easy walking distance to all of the city's sights. Parking for my rental was a huge plus and free and delicious breakfast every morning was icing on the cake! In particular Oscar was exceptionally helpful with places to go and requests and Andrea, who hosts the breakfasts every morning, was always welcoming with a big smile! Thank you guys, I will be back :)

Perfect location in the middle of the town. Very safe hotel with private (and free) parking for your car. Excellent breakfast. There was an issue with the A/C in our room. The staff reacted very professional about our complaint and reduced our room rate by 50%. In addition we were invited for dinner. Pefect!

wonderful, super hosts of their country

Posted 23-Aug-2016
Pros: Everything!
Cons: internet speed (faster)
Location: close to everything, great location!
All the staff, from the dinning room to the the reception, from the hosts to the room caretakers. super professional, respectful and giving people service plus. I would, not only recommend it, but stay there the next time I visit fabulous Costa Rica. I would evaluate them 11 out of 10. It's close to everything and the people who work there are proud Ticos who really know what tourism and service is all about!!!!!!
