The staff here are outstanding - and that goes for all of them, from the great greeting, the office staff dealing with my booking, the lovely ladies cooking a perfect breakfast and the friendly cleaning ladies, It was just wonderful and we stayed here twice - at the beginning and at the end of our holiday. The rooms were equipped...

We stayed at Apartotel Sabana twice, a week apart. Unfortunately, my wife left her new nightgown behind during our first stay. When we returned a week later, her nightgown was waiting for her, freshly laundered! There is a tranquil atmosphere at the hotel in the midst of a frenetic city. The staff is helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were outstanding!

The hotel is located near downtown and next to the Sabana park and a museum. It is in a quiet area and by bus or taxi quick ride to the center of the city; it is about 30 min walk, so if you want to be in the middle of downtown or waking distance, it is not the best. But...

This is a great little hotel. It's in a quiet setting, but with-in walking distance of downtown San Jose, and of course very close to the Sabana park just a block away. We had a very relaxing stay, the internet was fast and reliable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and the pool refreshing. We highly...

We used this is as our start and end point to a two week trip touring Costa Rica. Eating out is expensive, so my tip is to eat in a local soda or, as the rooms all have kitchenettes, head off to the supermarket close by to save cash. Head up the road to the park, turn left and walk...

We stayed here on the recommendation of friends and were very pleased with it. It is out of the town center but not far - we walked in but it is about two miles so a taxi would be better for most people. The breakfast was by far the best we've had in Costa Rica, and the rooms and beds...

The beautiful gardens (with the plants all labeled!) surrounding a tiled pool and the delicious breakfasts make this place special. Our room was quiet and clean, the beds were comfortable, there was plenty of hot water, and the wifi was excellent. The management was helpful. We will definitely return if we find ourselves in San Jose again

Serene setting with quick access to dentist in downtown San jose. Bus line just around the corner for cheap quick access around the city. I would NEVER rent a car and drive in this city, the bus is fine or the staff will get you a cab.
