We arrived at SJO late in the evening and had to leave early the next morning. This hotel was just right for that situation. The room was able to accommodate us - 3 people needing 3 separate beds. It was clean and relatively quiet. There was a fan, which was good because the weather was hot and humid. The front...

Comfy bed, nice breakfast of fruit and Costa Rican breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful wooden architecture with birds flying around. Only stayed for a night but very pleasant stay (21 in our group). Nice and close to the airport.

We were flying into San Jose at 1am, so I contacted the hotel to see if we could check in at that hour, and they were happy to accommodate us. They were very prompt with their communication. We got a little lost on our way there because there are no street signs until you get more into the middle of...

A neat place with clean rooms. Big + for the shower that had hot water and good water flow. The bathroom was very clean as well. Staff was nice and helpful. The breakfast was simple but ok :) Would give the place 3+ if possible. Well worth the money for 4 people (2 adults, 2 kids)

The employees were very nice and always asked if you were good. Although there was no A/C and it was situated in a sort of sketchy location, the interior was clean and welcoming which was surprising in a way.

I've stayed here twice and each time it was very enjoyable. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. Its also quiet and it is easy to sleep. The people who work here are lovely and very accommodating.

While a lot of other reviewers really thought this place was great/clean/etc., I wasn't exactly blown away by Hotel Pacande for the price. At $50-60/night, there are better places to stay in San Jose and maybe Alajuela (but we only stayed in Alajuela for the one night after arriving on a late flight.) Pros: close to the airport, breakfast is...

My friends and I stayed here for 1 night on our last day in Costa Rica and we were going to Arenal the day after we stayed. They offered to hang on to our bags until we got back because we didn't have to head to the airport until the evening. They also allowed us to have a shower after...

Unfortunately the electricity was out (for the area) when we first got there, but was fixed in a couple hours. It is a very small hotel, and our room had no window to the outside, only a window to the hallway which made me feel claustrophobic. The staff was very friendly and business-like, the breakfast was what I would call...

nice staff - great if you are searching for a basic place for one night. reasonable price for resting close to the airport (and to the local restaurant /bar). Common bathroom - it's normal to wait for your shower in the morning.
