“Great for first night in San Jose before moving to next destination”
Reviewed 4 January 2010

Spent 1 night here before leaving San Jose to head to Caribbean coast. Easy to find and get to. Very quiet at night time, with some food options within walking distance. I had no complaints. Breakfast was good and included, eggs, rice/beans and fresh cut fruit, papaya juice, coffee. I would stay here again for a night in San Jose before moving on to my next destination.

I stayed here for one week to have dental work done. The staff is the highlight of this hotel, the ameneties, or shall I say lack there of, is the downfall. The food in the breakfast buffet was just WEIRD! Like hotdogs sliced down the middle and pan seared...Only one morning was edible. The building and pool is new and nice. The street it is on is nothing short of scarey to walk alone on. As far as the amenities...no airconditioning (floor fan provided) and it is HOT! It was difficult to sleep on the rock hard beds in the heat. No shampoo provided, no washcloths, no ice anywhere in the building, no hair dryers, no coke machines, they do have WiFi. I am an easy to please traveler and do not need much but I can tell you I will NEVER stay here again and can not wait to leave in the morning! It is just plain boring too! None of the staff except one front desk girl spoke English. I feel dehydrated as there is nothing here to drink and it is not safe to walk to the store. Hope this helps.

We stayed here for a number of weeks and the self-catering apartments were just what we needed. Although very basic they were kept clean and generally had what we needed to get by.
The outdoor swimming pool was very cold and didn't have any furniture with which to sunbath but in honesty we never found the weather in San Jose good enough to take the sun!
Wireless internet was provided free of charge and more often than not, was available in the rooms, though on occasion we would go a number of days with no access at all.
Reception staff were at times unhelpful but the cleaning staff were very friendly and soon got used to our habits and time keeping and worked around us. They were a pleasure to speak to and did a thorough job.
Location was not ideal but a taxi could be easily found and it was only a short trip into the centre of San Jose. A supermarket was situated within walking distance at the end of the road and opened long hours and a pharmacy and convenience store among others were across the road.
Although this hotel was was basic they were undergoing changes during our stay and I imagine these will have improved it overall.

I came to do buisness in Costa Rica. My budget was a bit limited but I couldn't compromise the location.
You get what you pay for - nice hotel, modest and worth every Penny.
I will be back!!!!
