Stayed here one night at end of a tour. First impression is good with nice lobby area, restaurant , pool etc. It appears the money has been spent in these areas rather the bedrooms. Once you left reception the stairways and hallways were dark with stained carpets . Bedrooms were very dated and basic, three beds in the room crammed...

Their website does not accurately depict the room you will get. Old and dated with no ac. My room backed up to what sounded like an auto repair shop with lots on banging noise at 8am. The rooms are clean though.

Having arrived off a 12 flight from Heathrow, I met my sister at this hotel that her tour company had booked. Have you ever stay in a place where you don't want to touch anything? Well this is it! There are photos on the website of refurbished rooms, but there is a whole section of 50s rooms reminiscent of backpackers...

Since January, I had to attend some trainings in this hotel and the food was good. While I had the dinner, there was no live music so do not expect that; however, you can expect a great food. Service is good as well. It is in San Jose Downtown, very close to the highway in the essence that if you...

The small boutique hotel is nice, very clean, very friendly staff. Our room and bathroom could have used some upgrading. We had 2 beds uniquely arranged, AC worked as well as TV although...

The hotel is small little quaint hotel close to supermarket and Avenue Centraal. Came here to visit for medical reasons and this hotel was suggested by the clinic. See clinic and hotel have a great relationship and provide pre-and post-care services which are absolutely fantastic. The staff at the hotel arranged all of our transport to and from the clinic....

It's not a big American - style hotel but has a lovely atmosphere. The restaurant is not bad and the staff is very friendly. Of room was huge but oddly arranged. The air conditioner was on one side of a room divider, and the other side was stuffy.

I stayed at this hotel for a week while visiting the dentist. The hotel was clean, the staff were all wonderful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and I felt safe. The food in the restaurant was very good and the bar service was superb! We didn't really use the pool because it was too chilly during our visit but...

I stayed here last night on my way to another part of Costa Rica. The staff are extremely friendly and check in was very easy. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and lovely coffee! My room was really spacious and had a lovely shower. It's not a luxury hotel but absolutely perfect if you're in transit to or from the airport...
