Hotel in the heart of San Jose, Costa Rica

Spacious room, great location - walking distance to attractions, great breakfast selection, great panoramic view of the city - from high floor, friendly staff and affordable price. Surely a nice stay to stay for a short transit.

The public areas and the room itself all had nice décor. The room itself was pretty large and well appointed. The breakfast buffet was busy with tour groups, but did offer eggs to order, including omelets, and bottled water to take away.

Dirty place and terrible bed in the family suite

We booked a family suite, and the bed for my sons was a old and dirty convertible, with a slim mat, dirty sofa pillows, and bed sheets were shorter than the mat. This is unacceptable for the price we paid (133$ for 1 night). I’m sure you could find better and cleaner place. Breakfast was ok, buffet style. We do not recommend this place, this hotel and rooms need to be renovated, dirty carpet, old style lighting and furniture.

Very clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The best part was the breakfast which changed every day and offered plenty of choice. The location is ideal to walk in the center or as a starting point for the tours in Costa Rica.

We arrived to the hotel and the valet was great. They were all very nice! When we went to check in, the front staff was not very friendly. But that's not why I gave this hotel a 3 star. We came back to our hotel real late one night from visiting family. There were no valet drivers in the front, no big deal. My husband went up to the front desk and let them know no one was there and that we wanted to drop our key off. The young man at the front asked for our room #, told us he would give our key to a valet, and told us to have a good night. The next morning when we went downstairs to get our car, the valet asked for our ticket. We explained what happened the night before, and they began to look for our key. It took almost 30 minutes for them to find our key. Which would have been okay. I'm reasonable, I understand that things happen and so do mistakes. However, the people at the front tried to tell us that we never left our key with them. Then the manager tried to tell us that the guy we left the keys with had sticky fingers. Now, there was no language barrier either, my husband is from Costa Rica and speaks fluent Spanish. Needless to say, we will not be staying here again.
