I stayed in this hotel one night and I must admit it is in the very center of San José, which is wonderful if you enjoy shopping and walking, but if you get a room with window.... good luck! Traffic lights and street-sellers won't let you sleep until late in the night and they'll start again at 5. Concerning the...

This place is undergoing remodeling. Too bad management didn´t mention, when I paid for the room, that the restaurant and bar would not be open, for the duration of my stay, there was no hot water for 4 out of 5 days, no cable TV, and the phone system to the room did not work for days. While I will...

After reading the positiv reviews on Tripadvisor I decided to check the hotel out. It's a 1960 setting and since those days nothing was renovated. The plus was hot water in the bathroom and large rooms. The negatives, stinky towels, see through sheets, everthing is dingy, dirty looking and nedds some paint, the TV has some local channels and that's...

This is a review for my second visit to Hotel Doral. The hotel is a five storey building, located on a pedestrian street with many shops, restaurants and coffee shops. It is within an easy walking distance to the Parque Central, National Theatre and two blocks from Parque La Merced. Most of the bus stations to popular destinations are also...

Hotel Doral was a great find. The hotel was clean, and the rooms were very nice for the price ($30/night). There was cable TV, a huge armoir, a writing desk and a nightstand in the room. Recently remodeled bathrooms. Doral is only two short blocks from one of the main parks downtown, and the Teatro Nacional. Both of the guys...

After one night in a less than desirable hotel, a friend told me about Hotel Doral. I spent six wonderful nights. No A/C, but it is not necessary in San Jose. Large clean rooms with hot shower. Safe deposit box available and friendly, knowledgeable desk staff.

“Find another hotel, or check ahead of time to ensure the cable TV, phone system, bar, restaurant and hot water are all functioning. Ask to be in a room far from the disco if possible. Bring earplugs.”
