We chose this hotel for the convenient location between airport and downtown, spending our first and last night of this trip at this beautiful hotel. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful and all spoke English. The complementary breakfast was exceptional. Parking was safe (enclosed) and convenient. The hotel was clean and quiet. quiet

After flying for 9 hours and travelling for 14 hrs. As a solo female. A bit of false advertising. It is quite away from anything. No shops bars or restaurants. Hotel does NOT have a restaurant. Only continental breakfast. Room does NOT have a kettle or coffee facilities or even a bottle of water. I was told not to walk at night on my own. When I asked for a drink I was told drink water out of the tap! I stayed long enough to book another hotel, checked out lost £60 and got an Uber elsewhere. Room very dated but clean. Sheets old ahnd off colour but clean. That’s all I saw. If you are going make sure you stop at supermarket on way for drink for room

Response from Alberto G, Manager at Hotel Plaza Real Suites & Apartments
Responded 11 Mar 2020
Dear Ms. Gail, Just 3 blocks down from the hotel (at walking distance) there's a series of restaurants/shops/bars we've been advising our costumers to visit for years whenever they inquire about them and we constantly advise them that walking might be the cheapest and easiest way to get there. As the neighborhood is completely safe to walk in. If a costumer requires it, coffee facilities are sent to the room upon request as this allows us to give the e.g. coffee maker a better cleaning and maintenance process. Costa Rica's water supply is completely potable but if you wanted a water bottle, we could've provided you with as many as you needed as we keep them refrigerated for our costumers. The hotel does have a restaurant. It is located at the fourth floor of the hotel and serves American/Typical Costa Rican/Continental breakfast (as we've improved throughout the years and does also serve Lunch as advertised. We consider the most of your concerns would've been fixed through simple communication with the concierge at the time. Anyways, we are thankful for your comments as they help us improve and we hope we can make things better for you in the near future.

"Everything was very good with the exception of the neighbor's barking dog. A couple of nights, it went on all night long. But we were offered to be put into one of the apartments on the other side where we would not have heard the dog. That was a very nice upgrade offer, and we really appreciated it. The hotel is very nice and we definitely felt safe there."
