I arrived at this Hotel around 12:00 midnight with no reservation. The night Manager Maria Jose was more than helpful to me at a time when I was in need. Although this Hotel was full, this young lady, made several calls to other Hotels in the area to see if they had accommodations elsewhere. While most of the Hotels were...

We stayed at this hotel before boarding a live aboard to Cocos island, because the tour operator only had to pickup points. I would preferred to stay in San Jose, while this hotel is in the middle of nowhere. It has a small gym and a even tinier pool at the roof deck. Nice breakfast but nothing out of the...

A modern clean hotel not far from the airport which was a bonus after an 11 hour flight from London. Checking in was quick. We were on the 5th floor near the outdoor pool and gym. Coffee making facilities and robes available, even an iron but no mini bar or fridge. Two lovely double beds which were extremely comfortable. Did...

There is a Starbucks and more restaurants about a 10 minute walk away. There is also a mall close by (but would take a taxi because its up...

location is good if you need to stay close to escazu area in Costa Rica. The hotel opened recently so seems to be not organized at the time to check in. If your room is next to the Price Smart next door to the hotel, there's a lot of noise in the morning. Friendly staff . Gym area was ok...

The location of the hotel is ok, only the street is a bit noisy. Staff was really friendly and helpful every time. When i stayed there the hotel was quite busy and seemed to be fully booked. Rooms were ok and clean, average business hotel style - nothing special, but comfortable to work. The only bit disappointing was the breakfast....

We stayed here with our two kids. The hotel is nice and quiet and clean. However unless you want to hang out at a mall, posh stores and et at American chain restaurants there isn't a lot to do. Not my family's cup of tea when visiting a new country. Probably better for a business stay.

I stayed her for second time. Great place if you have business meetings near Multiplaza. Good places near to have dinner. Not so close to downtown, but easy to go by UBER. All staff is really nice and friendly. Specially Carlos at the front desk. He is always aware of all visitors
