Nice city view

Posted 14-Mar-2017
Passed by the hotel for one night to take a flight in the next morning. Despite the location and the irregular and small parking area, the staff was great and the room very clean. Everything was excellent for what we needed. The view of the city from the top room was marvellous.

Incredible view

Posted 01-Mar-2017
The hotel is hidden from public view. It is located on a hill with an incredible view of the city. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is great and there is an incredible Italian restaurant just down the street.

Beautiful Reviews

Posted 19-Jan-2017
Pros: The views were beautiful. The outdoor patio allowed you to prepare some foods and eat. Relaxing.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Taj Mahal Indian food restaurant across the street... Yummy!
Chose this hotel because it was only 5 doors down from the dental clinic I went to. But ended up loving it. I would come back to just stay here.

Friendly Staff, Great B&B style hotel

Posted 31-Aug-2016 on Hotels
Only stayed there for one night as we were heading out of San Jose the next morning. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very friendly. We had issues finding a rental car and the staff was very helpful in the arranging of a rental and allowing us to stay at the hotel while we waited for the rental company to arrive.

Not what it appeared to be online

Posted 28-Apr-2016
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Staff courtesy, room safety. No safes in room, no bars on window when all other areas have bars. Insufficient lock on room door, no deadbolt, etc.
Location: Up a hill, a ways away from the city, which should be nice. Taj Mahal restaurant across the street, which is great.
When we arrived at this hotel, we thought it was abandoned - no lights on the outside. Upon entering the compound, I told the person greeting us I was glad to be there. He replied, "You are? Why?" I thought that was a very strange way to be greeted. He took us up to our room, passing by the office and the breakfast room, all of which had bars on the window. Our room, though, had no bars and a bathroom-door style lock, no deadbolt or chain. My wife said she didn't feel secure in the room. She went to the person who greeted us, and told him she didn't think the room was secure, and he just folded his arms and told her "It is secure!" He said they had 10 cameras throughout the property, and someone watches them all night, but we didn't believe him. We ended up leaving and going to a much nicer hotel just up the road. They refused to refund our stay, and told us that the hotel is always full and that they have never had a problem there. We only saw one other guest there. This property just felt strange, and we were not comfortable there, so we left. When we called Expedia to discuss it with them, they called the hotel, and the hotel told them that we had been dealing with the night receptionist, and that the manager Fernando would be back tomorrow, but in fact it was Fernando who had checked us in. I won't go back and I don't recommend this property. We visit this area frequently, and I wanted to try a different property on this trip, but I was very disappointed

Good afternoon, As for the lights of the Hotel: The hotel has external and internal lights with motion sensors and light so that light when it's dark in the afternoon.  We regret that it has not felt safe in our hotel, unfortunately they are the first customers feeling this fear, because Escazu is one of the safest areas of San Jose but we must understand that you must live in another area not so sure. While we have security cameras in the area, fortunately it has never been necessary to review them because we have not had any security problem. Regarding payment of your stay will clarify that his money was returned a week later that Expedia contacted us to authorize full payment of the reservation. We regret that your experience was not like that of others as our customers in the Hotel. Best regards, Fernando

Their hotel manager Fernando just couldn't be more helpful with anything, everything. Lauren prepares breakfasts and is in site for anything but just a truly safe and comfortable boutique hotel
