Rincon del Valle Hotel & Suites
Ranked #36 of 78 Hotels in San Jose
Reviewed 17 February 2017

We braved the traffic on a Friday afternoon with a cab to get to St. Jose. it was horrendous but our cab was skillful. The hotel itself is quite nice and the room was very clean but smallish. Our only real complaint is that there was no hand soap in the bathroom. In the shower there was shower gel soap so we asked in our basic Spanish. The hotel came back with lotion and a hair net. Perhaps he did not understand. I went to the front and asked for hand soap and was told they did not have any. What, no hand soap and the soap in our shower was almost empty. Not good. Eventually this was corrected. The transportation to the airport took 5 minutes and costs $30 and I believe a rip off. I would use an off the street cab next time and negotiate. All in all the hotel was clean and efficient and did its job.

We flew in and out of San Jose and needed a comfortable hotel that would serve our simple needs. Rincon del Valle was that and more. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Parking was gated, and easy. We had breakfast that was truly típica comida and filling. When it came to our room, it was spacious and comfortable. Will definitely stay here again when in San Jose.

This hotel isn't right on a busy street so it's really very quiet. The staff is extremely helpful and most speak very good English but they do appreciate your trying to communicate with them in Spanish! Rooms are nicely furnished, with a fridge in the rooms. Beds are very comfortable and rooms are very clean. For a small fee you can also have a full breakfast. There's a small spa on the property as well as a fitness center. We have stayed here 3 times in the past 2 months and will book again when we need to pick up people from the airport. It's approximately a 15 min. Drive to the airport but not hard to find with a navigation system or good directions from the front desk.

This is a nice small hotel, conveniently located for business around "La Sabana Park" at good price.
Rooms are small but nice and clean. Restaurant is excellent though not pretentious.
Modern look, and the sense of a boutique hotel.
Service is excellent.
