We stayed here for one week in one of the superior rooms. The staff is super friendly and the hotel is very clean however the rooms and furniture are old and dated....very much in need of an upgrade. Good location but overpriced for a rundown hotel. Plenty of better places to stay in this price range...wouldn't recommend it.

We stayed for two nights at the start of a trip through Costa Rica.
The airport taxi drivers didn't seem to have heard of it but found it without any trouble on seeing the address.

Staff are friendly and helpful but don't expect them to speak much English.

Our room was basic and had some exciting wiring on the TV and shower. Both, however, worked fine.

We arrived back at the hotel on a Sunday evening and found that we were struggling to find somewhere to eat. Being too tight to get a taxi, we wondered the streets until finding a little pizza place. I had imagined that finding food nearby would be a bit easier in San Jose.

The pool and hot tub looked nice but we didn't use them as we were short of time having had flight delays and early starts. The rooftop terrace area is very nice on a sunny day, and the breakfast (a Costa Rican rice and beans affair....why don't we all do that?!) is well worth having.

One thing to be aware of is that (certainly in our room) noise travelled very easily. We were unfortunate enough to be sharing the hotel with what I think was a large school trip of 15-16 year olds, who ran around, slamming doors and bouncing wheelie-suitcases down the stairs through most of the night and early the following morning. The walls seemed to do little to stop the noise from any direction!

Having said that, when the other guests were not being noisy the traffic noises from outside were not bad.

Nice enough, basic hotel. Good for the price. Major drawbacks are lack of places to eat closeby (on a Sunday night, at least) and noise from other rooms.

Room tip: I am told that the rooms are variable. Ours was on the small side but comfortable.

Nice place to set up a base for exploring San Jose. Walking distance to La Sabana park, or short ($3-5) cab ride to Paseo Colón, market, and city center. Funky, charming, rambling place that has been added onto over the years, this is a calm clean hotel with friendly staff. Free breakfast; check out the pool and rooftop eating area/patio. Recommended for groups or single family visits.

Stayed for a week (for dental work next door). Alexia, Jeffery and staff were very pleasant/professional. (Older building, not the Ritz) but great pool/jacuzzi and a muy agradable every morning on the rooftop overlooking mountains and fauna. muchas gracias. Will be back in a few month. -Paul

this was a good room for the price. the beds are comfortable, but the pillows could be better. THe pool and Hot tub are both nice. the first night, we had cold water in the shower. We didn't tell the front desk. In the morning, after we told the front desk, within 30 minutes we had hot water. Guess we should have mentioned it the night before.

The included breakfast is typical CR. Very good. They also have a flat roof for sun bathing, if you have some free time.

mi amega at the front desk was very helpful

Room tip: the superior rooms on the second floor are the best.
