My stay at Ave del Paraiso unluckily coincided with the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the quick global escalation of chaos and uncertainty, the hotel owners took excellent care of both guests and staff. Unlike many other hotels in the area, AdP didn't rush to close until all guests - but the charming sloth and the humming birds from the neighborhood - were able to rearrange their flights from Costa Rica back home. The Adamskis were fantastic! I'll definitely book a room here again next time I'm in San Jose.

I picked this hotel because I had stayed here twice before in years past, for work. The Organization for Tropical Studies uses this hotel because of its great location. I was happy on those visits. My current stay is HORRIBLE because they put me in the newer house which is closer to the driveway (I hear people going in and out and talking loudly), nearer to the street (where I can hear traffic, especially the airbrakes on the trucks late at night -- the racket is impressive), and has really frustratingly unreliable WIFI. If they try to put you in the new house by the street, just cancel your visit. The new house is also next to the Cracovia cafe on the street. This restaurant/bar is run by the sons of the owner of Ave Paraiso. Tonight, they started live music at 10PM, and I need to work tomorrow. I know sometimes hotels in the city have noisy neighbors , but here the very same owners run the hotel AND create the noise. I am sure the main house is still quite, no traffic noise, no concerts, but I don-t think I will every stay here again if I don-t have a clear guarantee of what room I will be in. This is a shame, because I have a long history with Ave Paraiso.

This is an eco boutique hotel. Very centric, with easy access to a mall nearby, fast food restaurants and a plaza with a food court. Public transportation runs close to the hotel, which is also located next to one of the university of Costa Rica´s entrances. Feels very safe. It´s also about 5-7 minutos far from Escalante. There is a good breakfast (fruits, bread, ham, cheese, gallo pinto, coffee, tea, juice, cereal.) The customer service was over the top. Do not expect to find a fancy room with AC. Rooms are quite and very basic but comfortable. There is hot water, and a small fridge. I would recommed this hotel if you are in San Jose for work or business.
