This is a great hotel with a very friendly staff and excellent amenities. While it isn't in a very touristy area, the mall across the street is enormous and the food at the hotel is very, very good. I recommend the Marketplace over its other restaurants but all are good quality. The gym and pool are great and I've been...

Everything at this hotel is great. Since the moment you get in the front desk, the restaurant, gym, and room you will be stunned for the gorgeous of the decoration. And the best of all is its location: just across the street from one of the biggest mall in Central America: Multiplaza.

First class hotel, with terrific amenities. One suggestion....Try not to get a room close to the elevator...there is noise from below in the lobby. The breakfast is sumptuous. The rooms are terrific. The staff is accommodating. You will enjoy this.

Always come to the Intercontinental Hotel in my visits to Costa Rica. Hotel is indeed very good, a bit far away from San Jose's old city but in a nice neighborhood right across the MultiPlaza Mall. Several restaurants in the hotel and they are all very good indeed although a bit pricy. Rooms are nice and well looked after. A...

Mr. Eduardo, it is always a pleasure to receive comments as nice as yours. Even though the city center is only 20 minutes away from the hotel it can seem a little bit far away depending on the time of the day. It is however definitely an advantage to have the Multiplaza Mall right in front of the street. Our...

I stayed in the club tower, while traveling for business. The room met expectations, though a balcony would have been nice.

Excellent hotel (modern, stylish, flashy) located in the capital city of San Jose. It is across from a large, modern mall (what more could you ask for?). Substantial ride to/from the airport in what can be (depending upon the time) a massive traffic jam. Watch your time!
