We stayed at KC Hotel San Jose two times during our trip to CR. It was reasonably priced and both of our nights at the hotel were great. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a clean, reasonably-priced accommodation in SJ.

I had to stay at KC hotel for 1 night. I usually stay in San Jose each time I go to Costa Rica so I knew the general area. I expected it to be a bit noisey, but did not know it was close to the train. Late at night and early in the morning you could hear the train....

I love the pool side lounge and restaurant. Open atmosphere is relaxing and enjoyable. Music is a great touch. Rooms are not spectacular, but are nice. I like the open hallways. Location is close to good food. Open garden at front is lovely.

This hotel exceeded all expectations from the online booking. Very clean, modern, and secure. Free WiFi, gated lot with a security guard, free parking,very helpful staff. The room we stayed in was very large with great A/C. And best of all, the breakfast buffet in the restaurant next to the pool. Plenty of breads, hot dishes, pinto gallo, coffee, juices,...

The KC Hotel is right next to the national stadium and the park. To walk into the main part of the city will take you around 30mins, but there is plenty to see on the way. The rooms are clean, and the shower was the best we had in Costa Rica. The TV also works, so that is an added...

This hotel is the best within its price range, the rooms are basic but clean. The breakfast was extremely good with no restrictions on quantity. The pool is ok for a small hotel. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay or for somewhere to rest a tired body after a rainforest trek.

There is nothing fancy or charming here but it is a decent hotel with a nice pool area. The rooms are somewhat dull, with no view, but relatively large and clean.
