Just to reconfirm what other travellers wrote: Great place to stay and fabolous breakfast. I wish I had found other places like this in CR . Highly recommended and good price value! No possibility to smoke in the patio..

I highly recommend this hotel. Our room was big, comfortable, and the entire hotel is unique and fun to walk around—lots of green spaces and cool hallways. The bathroom was spacious and it was a treat to take a warm shower here after 10 days in the jungles and on the beaches of Costa Rica! The hotel is a nice,...

We stayed for one night before leaving for a three week road trip and it was a very nice stay. Very quiet, which is what you want after traveling 28hours! The reception at the place is very helpful on where to eat and find atm, etc in the area. Breakfast was awesome (fx omelet made to order)! Definitely reccommended!

We had one night in San José before heading out on our road trip through the country. This was a nice place to stay - excellent breakfast and a standard room. Not many eateries in the neighborhood but as we only stayed there for a short time it was okay. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The hotel had a nice room and was very clean. The shower and bathroom facilities were great. Location not ideal but it is within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Overall pretty good. Breakfast was very good but we only had time to grab a few things to take away.

We stayed here two different nights and had a great experience. Aranjuez is situated on a quiet side street and we heard very little traffic noise. What we did hear was during evening rush hour.
