Rincon del Valle Hotel & Suites
Ranked #36 of 78 Hotels in San Jose
Reviewed 12 March 2017

We stayed one night arriving from Chile to travel around Costa Rica. It is about 15 minutes from airport, not near the centre of the city. That was okay as we were travelling to Manuel Antonio the next day. The room was okay, a little dark but very adequate for the night. The lady at the hotel restaurant was so friendly and made us laugh. We found the staff very helpful and also friendly, asked if we needed anything a few times. made for a very pleasant stay

Room Tip: Room on the ground floor was a bit dark

I stayed in this hotel one night after arriving in San Jose to rest up and prepare for a long journey the following day. I was immediately impressed by the unique layout of this hotel when you walk to your room. The interior corridors are partially exposed to the beautiful San Jose weather and you don't feel as if you're in a stuffy hotel. The rooms are small, however. Don't expect a large suite here. Despite the rooms being small, they are more than adequate for a short stay and the hotel restaurant was very good. I would say that the best part of this hotel is not so much the room itself, but the pretty charming atmosphere of the entire hotel. Since this hotel is a little cramped for space, the jacuzzi area and "gym" are almost like afterthoughts with a couple pieces of gym equipment crammed into a corner. But that's about the only negative I can find with this place. Overall it was a good value with a great experience and I will definitely come back the next time I arrive in San Jose!

Room Tip: Rooms are small. Know that up front, but don't let that alone turn you away from this place!

Arrived late in the evening to a welcoming staff and porters that delivered our bags to our room. A clean room, rather small, but adequate.
Good staff here, very helpful in very regard.
Room was quiet and slept well.

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.
