Stayed at this hotel for a conference and could not have been happier. The hotel is a two block walk from the main pedestrian mall and square in San Jose. The breakfast was amazing with a wide array of Costa Rican dishes and fruit, which is always in season. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the views are amazing of the city and mountains.

Stayed here for 1 week in September. Great location, within walking distance for shopping, museums, parks and restaurants. Breakfast Buffet was plentiful with great Omelett station. Servers where super friendly and remembered you all week. Happy hour is a must. Very nice rooms, a bit outdated but very clean and comfortable beds. Only problem was with key cards, had to get new ones every day or re-authorized the old ones. This seems to be an ongoing problems according to other reviews. Maybe it's time to change to new key cards or get a new reader. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful hotel

It was a nice surprise to arrive to this hotel when the neighborhood isn't precisely the fanciest. While it's well located to touristic areas and it's central (I went to a conference in Universidad de Costa Rica and it wasn't that far), I didn't dare to walk alone at night around. The attention is good, breakfast buffet quite good with both international and local options to eat, I had dinner a couple of nights and its a good kitchen. The rooms are comfy, clean and well maintained. I really have zero complaints about my stay here.

Let me start by saying that the lobby is nice, our room, although a bit older (bed could use replacing and the bathtub and bathroom floor were stained), was clean and comfy. We were on a higher floor, which had a nice lounge and a lovely man working there who was very attentive. Happy hour each weekday being, consisted of complimentary drinks and snacks. Breakfast was included with our room as well and was an extensive buffet. The issues were mostly about the keys. As most hotels have, this hotel had electronic key cards which operate your room door but also the elevator and entrance to the lounge. Our keys continuously failed and had to be reset. Each time the keys were reset, the desk attendant simply asked our room number and provided a new key without asking for any identification. This is particularly worrisome as the hotel is in Downtown San Jose, near the red light district and not the best part of town at night. I would have liked to leave a better review. We met some wonderfully hard working and attentive members of the staff. Our food, both in the buffet and the 17th floor restaurant was excellent. But the safety issues made me very uncomfortable.

Rooms are decent but in a dated hotel

Location is smack in downtown - perhaps you would find that convenient but there isn't much around as far as tourist places, so keep that in mind. We upgraded to executive rooms which were nicer and provided access to the business lounge (so-so). The bathrooms are dated. But the rooms are clean and beds comfortable - good night's rest. Not much of a view from any room - just the city below.
