We stayed there two nights before our g adventures tour and one night after. The buffet breakfast was excellent - I especially loved the coffee. There was a pleasant interior courtyard for sitting and with a pool (unheated). The hotel is in a pleasant area for walking around and there was a grocery store nearby. There is a large pleasant...

As part of the tour you stay at this hotel the first and last nights. I also stayed one night extra upon arrival into San Jose. The room was average, comfortable beds with air con. I felt like the lighting was a bit inadequate rendering the room dark and difficult to find things when trying to pack in a rush.... More

We only stayed in San Jose and this hotel for 1 night, but were pleased with our time there. Our room was spacious and very modern and the wi-fi was fast. The restaurant was VERY nice and the hotel staff was all very friendly and professional. We were able to walk to a large local park a few blocks away.... More

I can't stress this enough. .. this place is a dump! We were put in a third floor room and hauled our bags up a filthy staircase because there is no elevator. Our room was out dated and in poor shape. There was no air, the fixtures came off the wall in the bathroom, and no refrigerator even though there... More

Hotel Autentico has two levels of room. One is for budget travellers, especially those on a tour, and a higher class with better rooms. We were on a tour, and our room was basic and clean with good beds, hot water, and a good night's sleep. The staff are quite friendly and appreciative of travelers who attempt to use Spanish,...

A very good well run hotel.with no frills just basics but everything you could wish for if passing through San Jose for a day or two. Clean decent size rooms, hairdryer, coffee machine, good comfy beds, strong warm shower. Near enough to airport and near enough to town centre but not too close to either.
