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.

Very nice staff and quiet hotel. Nice swimming pool and good position in San José. We were in family and spend 3 good nights there. Simple but clean and quiet rooms. I recommend this hotel to begin and/or finish your stay in Costa Rica.

I stayed here a total of three nights and had a great experience. I found location to be very good. While there is not much around the hotel (some would find this a negative), it is not far from anything. The rooms are spotless, the breakfast great, and the pool area divine.
