This hotel exceeded all expectations from the online booking. Very clean, modern, and secure. Free WiFi, gated lot with a security guard, free parking,very helpful staff. The room we stayed in was very large with great A/C. And best of all, the breakfast buffet in the restaurant next to the pool. Plenty of breads, hot dishes, pinto gallo, coffee, juices,...

The KC Hotel is right next to the national stadium and the park. To walk into the main part of the city will take you around 30mins, but there is plenty to see on the way. The rooms are clean, and the shower was the best we had in Costa Rica. The TV also works, so that is an added...

This hotel is the best within its price range, the rooms are basic but clean. The breakfast was extremely good with no restrictions on quantity. The pool is ok for a small hotel. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay or for somewhere to rest a tired body after a rainforest trek.

There is nothing fancy or charming here but it is a decent hotel with a nice pool area. The rooms are somewhat dull, with no view, but relatively large and clean.

This hotel was good for the price. The staff was very helpful. Irene in front went above and beyond to help me out. She clearly cares about the customers.

We have stayed here before and returned for another nice experience. While the room and bathroom could use an update, they were clean. The beds are comfortable. Our room was in the front of the hotel and closest to the street, but it was pretty quiet as the hotel sits back from the street. We had some yummy pizza at...

The bathrooms and showers at this place need some serious redoing... For the price way below what you would expect. The shower tiles are moldy, the bathroom in general is dark and the smell of stale urine (I hope that's not what it was) overwhelmed the room. I stayed in room 327 and better believe I will never be staying...
