Hotel is ideal if you're in San Jose at the beginning or end of your trip, staying for no more than a night or two. Friendly and efficient staff provide high level of service. Breakfast was rather good (and nourishing), the coffee amazing.

We stayed six days over Christmas in this well-located small hotel on the north side of La Sabana Park. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood walking distance from downtown. We walked to the Mercado Central and museums, and enjoyed San Jose's Tope (parade of paso fino horses) on Paseo Colon the day after Christmas and the Rio-style carnival the...

Nice place with great breakfast, great staff and secure parking. Noise from the open kitchen by the pool can be a little annoying starting to prepare the breakfast at 4am. Wondered why smoking is forbidden on the own balcony. Generally I found the hotel a little too pricy. If you read this before you booked your flight: try to avoid...

We stayed here for just one night after flying into the Juan Santamaría International Airport. It is located on a side street in a mostly residential area that didn’t show up well when we tried to use Google maps. Attempting to find the place at night was a challenge, given San Jose’s lack of street signs, but Waze helped us...

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel on our way to Playa Conchal. Every thing about this hotel was beyond our expectations, including location, helpfulness of staff , and of course the breakfast. I strongly recommend this hotel especially to those with children.

The staff was so helpful and kind. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The kitchenette has no coffee but a nice coffee maker so plan to bring your own. Although the espresso machine with full breakfast was self serve. Breakfast was great - wonderful fresh eggs and nicely spiced black beans - fresh fruit! Housekeeping was very agreeable.
