We stayed in Isla Verde the first night we arrived to San Jose, CR. Clean room, a little noisy since it was close to the main road. On the way back from Santa Teresa, CR we stayed two more nights (different room). Bryan, I have to say was very, very kind and helpful. Breakfast was delicious, everyone is friendly and...

This hotel is a little off the beaten track and not near clubs and night life but it suited our needs perfectly. We took a trip on the city bus from the hotel to Mercado Central (Central market) and the gold museum as bus stop was just outside the hotel. There is a sandwich place, pizza and two supermarkets at...

The Isla Verde is an older hotel but they keep it clean and it's location is convenient to downtown San Jose and Escuz. The restaurant in the hotel is no bad either. Plus it's fairly priced. The furnishings are sparse but adequate.

While it may have been closer to more food options if the hotel was located downtown, I appreciated so much the value I received for the price that I paid, especially when I checked in to find that as a Christmas gift my room had been upgraded! The hotel is modernly redone and the furniture in the rooms so comfortable....

We stayed in a deluxe room for 2 nights. This room was our least favorite out of all the hotels in Costa Rica where we stayed, but it provided what we needed for our short 2 night stay. The first night they gave us a room on the 1st floor which was very basic and the bathroom had a shower...

Whilst the hotel is not really in a great part of SJ for local restaurants, it's great value and extremely clean and well looked after. The staff at the front desk are really helpful and very professional and a credit to the hotel owners. The hotel restaurant is Chinese with no local options which is weird. Breakfast is ok but...

I stayed for a week and will return for another in the spring. The hotel room was spacious and clean with a large bathroom. Very good internet and tv service. The window opened to an enclosed rock garden open to the sky above. It was clean and the environment peaceful. One block to several fast food locations and a small...

The proximity to the American Embassy is the primary reason we stayed here again but the hotel is excellent in the fine quality and decoration of the rooms, great and personal service and a real Chinese restaurant. This is the 3rd time we have stayed here and we will come back anytime we have business in San Jose.

...if you don't want to stay in downtown Costa Rica, but still want to be near the city center. There's a very good access to public transportation from the hotel.
