The people at the front desk were incredibly helpful and nice. The manager is always cheerful and anticipates your needs. The room are large. The beds are so comfortable that I fall asleep quickly and wake up refreshed. It is in easy walking distance to excellent restaurants and a three-story mall.

Room Tip: It's near the commuter train. But it only runs during morning and evening rush hours.

I stayed at Hotel Tairona for 2 months. It was a delightful experience. The hotel staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. I felt at home and greatly miss my Tairona family. The location is ideal, as it is around the corner from the university (UCR) and close to downtown. I highly recommend staying here.

This hotel is excellent, the service is really good they would always try to help you and would be prepare with different suggestions. The rooms are big and very clean, also very well equipped. The hotel is located in a nice area, next to the San Pedro Mall. It can also be found in a walk distance restaurants, bars and clubs, which makes it the perfect location. Also for those interested in learning Spanish the hotel is located near language schools. It was definitely an incredible experience.

They have a loud train passing side by side the apartahotel, and they didn't tell you about that. The train passes from 5:30 am to 10:00PM almost every minute, with a loudly horn. The hotel smells like dust.

The place is clean, and the staff are super nice and helpful. Very close to restaurants, the University of Costa Rica, and plenty of public transportation options to get to other parts of San Jose. Very recommended!
The breakfast is simple but great to start the day.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that are newer, apparently the ones at a discount have humidity smell.

On the one hand, its budget friendly, has friendly staff and is clean. On the other hand, there is no air conditioning, a train passes right outside and the immediate neighborhood isn't great. I usually like to stay near universities, because there are often interesting things nearby, but not so much here.

I spent two weeks at the hotel tairona and I very much enjoyed it. The staff were always helpful and courteous which I believe is common amongst Costa Rican people. The hotel is 1 minute walk from a Taco Bell, 5 minute walk from mall, and 2 minute walk from AM PM convenience store.

My room was very spacious and comfortable and was always cleaned and prepared for me. My only issue with the hotel, which is no fault of their own, is their close proximity to the train station. At night the train would sound its loud horn and kept me awake at times. Also the rooms are not sound proof so if you have a noisy neighbour you will be able to hear them. Otherwise, great hotel and wonderful experience.

Every member of staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Recommended - they also arranged a tour and a taxi. Close enough to walk into San Jose centre in about 30 mins and many interesting and varied local restaurants.

This hotel is pretty convenient. The staff is friendly and the relation price-service-room is good. Don't expect a swimming pool or a gym but it is close to a supermarket and good restaurants. Also, it has a private parking area within the location.

I was a student staying in the hotel for seven weeks. The service was great all around, take the time to get to know the people if you can. I had many great conversations with Roberto, who has the most English there. The included breakfast was very nice and the maids were great. When your in the hotel, you almost forget that your in the city. There is a Pops right near the hotel and University of Costa Rica is right across the street. There is also a lot of night life right around the university and the San Pedro mall.The only thing I did not like was the train horn early in the morning, but that's that. Overall would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in San Jose.
