With family, rented two apartments for 2 nights. Like going back in time with no flat screen TVs, but very clean, good location and the welcome basket in the kitchen a nice touch. Also, felt very safe with secure parking. Overall, a pleasant stay and good value for its price.

I've stayed in the hotel on two different trips. It's an excellent location for the District 4 shopping center and other shops in the Escazu area. The close proximity to my dentist, Dr. Oriana Gonzalez at Sonria Dental Boutique who I also highly recommend is a bonus for this well tended and kept property. The kitchenettes are such a nice...

We traveled to San Jose for Dental Tourism. The Don Francisco Apartotel is a good place to recuperate after dental surgery. Even though the room is dated, it's clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A small shopping center is close by with a grocery store.

This hotel, featuring quiet efficiencies, is located just behind the District 4 shopping center and Escazu. Escazu is about 12K west of the San Jose airport. The hotel appears to be family run and has a welcoming staff. Parking (in the rear) is secured with electronic access. Rooms are functional and clean. Americans will find the furnishings rudimentary. The property...

A great place to use as a base when we travel to San Jose to shop for our business. Very accommodating hosts, close proximity to hotel supply and electronics shopping. Good restaurants and supermarket close by. Rooms are spacious and comfortable.

Chosen for the great rates and convenient location to my business at hand, ApartHotel Don Francisco is now a favorite, especially for longer stays with the kitchen. It is clean, quiet and very friendly staff. The parking is secure and it easy to come and go from.

Very nice. We needed a place to stay overnight. Nicely appointed with enough room for our large family to be comfortable. Breakfast offerings were a nice mix of continental and American options. Recommended to our family there as a great place to visit.

This apartotel is located in Gauchepelin a suburb of San Jose. Unlike a typical hotel, each room is set up as an apartment with fully equipped kitchens and enough room to spread out and relax comfortably. While located on a quiet street, it is within walking distance of a new commercial center featuring several restaurants and shops, including a supermarket,...

I chose this hotel because it was within walking distance of my Costa Rican Dentist, Dr. Mario Garita... The hotel was a pleasant surprise ... The room was large with high ceilings, fully equipped kitchen, living room and bedroom with large shower...it was very clean and kept that way for the 14 days I was there...
