This hotel is a great place to stay for a stop in SJO. You can walk to many restaurants and it has a great coffee bar next door (Oso) and two pubs as well. This is not for people that cannot take noise, when the tram passes you can hear it as if it is passing through your room, I...

Thank you for your review although you have made it clear your stay with us was not up to your standards. I would like to respond to a few of your comments. First, according to my staff, you arrived complaining about the last place you stayed and did not stop complaining until you left. You were put on the top...

This place is fabulous. The location is excellent and everyone that works or helps out around the hotel is nice, knowledgeable and helpful. We were able to get a pick-up from the airport for an extra charge - well worth it. I highly recommend considering this option. Once we arrived, the room was exactly as pictured. The grounds are private...

Thank you for your great comments. We will share them with our staff We have a secure bodega and we are happy to store our guests belongings there while they explore other parts of the country.

The owner is very nice. He will make sure you have a wonderful stay. I woke up really early, he bought me local bread for breakfast and prepared me coffee and some other treats. I checked in without making a reservation very late at night. The owner was not in the hostel, but when he received my called, he rushed...

Conveniently located in California Barrio. Clean , but modest rooms. Beautiful city views from rooftop. Very nice staff and fresh continental breakfast. Can walk to museums and central market. Perfect for a night or two on either end of your trip.

Thank you very much for your comments. Well put. Couldn't have expressed it better if I had written the review myself, except of course, being the owner, I would have rated us at a 5 :)

This is a quaint, quirky old-style hotel in a convenient area of San Jose, NOT you typical Holiday Inn. It has lots of atmosphere: colourful paint scheme with a treed courtyard in the middle, adequate rooms, very helpful staff, great fresh fruit continental breakfast, and is an easy walk to many interesting attractions - museums, pedestrian walkways, a beautiful baroque...

Thank you for your wonderful comments. We are always glad to hear from guests who have enjoyed their stay with us. You are very accurate in your review. We are not a typical Holiday Inn and we have worked very hard to earn that distinction. Each room is individually decorated. The rooms are colorful, tasteful, and inviting. We have gardens,...

Thank you very much for your comments and feedback. As I have mentioned before we are always happy to hear from our guests. Yes, we allow pets to stay at our hotel for free.

This place is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We slept well. It is in the center of the city so there are some noise and it is near a train. The train does stop a bit during the night so we did sleep well. It does start early. I think that is the compromise for such a central and good...

Thank you for your comments. We are happy to receive feedback from guests. We are in the downtown area of a large city. It means there are big city noises to contend with. We do have ambient noise machines available at the front desk to assist if you are a light sleeper. Being in the downtown area also means that...

I was recommended this place from a friend in Canada. I'm a solo backpacker, so this was a treat to stay here for a night but totally worth it!
