Location in heart of San Jose
Weather was good, enjoyed walking to museums, restaurants. Interesting hotel design, not the norm but very pleasing and comfortable with a little rustic appeal. Room was spacious and cleaned very well. Hotel does exchange some money. (US and EU). A lot of places/restaurants/cab take USA dollars but make sure you have small denominations, $5 and $1, nothing over $20. I used credit card mostly for shopping and restaurants. Was solo for a couple of days and did not feel unsafe. Like all tourists spots around the world beware of pick pockets. Keep wallet/ passport secure. Enjoyable time, people friendly.
