We were very happy with our stay. There was a snafu with our reservation (totally our fault) and Ernesto worked very hard to find a solution. We ended up at their sister hotel, the Voltaire, for 2 nights. Both places were clean, safe and friendly. Try the pink juice at the Orchideas with your breakfast. I don't know what it...

Cute spot to start/finish your trip to Costa Rica if you are on a budget. The staff is so wonderful, very friendly. Rooms are small but clean, with your own bathroom. There is the option to buy breakfast in the hotel. Not super cheap, but you get quite a large portion of a traditional Costa Rican breakfast (you can also...

It was my first time in central america and Ernesto and co. made it very easy to adjust. They answered any questions I had before arriving very promptly and were always willing to help. They helped arrange my transportation to and from the airport (very early and late flights too), gave great advice on what to see in the city,...

We opted for this hotel for our stay in San José as it was affordable and well located. We got a double room with twin beds and there was plenty of space in the room. The most notable thing is the cleanness of the place, even if it is a budget hotel it is really well maintained. The staff is...

This hotel truly is a small boutique hotel with the basic necessities. It definitely doesn't have all of the bells and whistles, rather a very comfortable and clean location with friendly, warm-hearted staff that makes you feel right at home. The food is authentic and the location is convenient. I have stayed here several times now as I bring a...

This room was very standard in a very good location. The room could be a bit loud at times and made it difficult to sleep. However, perks such as kitchen use and location made is bearable to stay in for a couple of nights.

Hello Ozioma: Thanks for your review. We are located on Central Avenue and it could be a little loud in rush hour, but not during the night, even for the rooms that face it. In the back part, where most of our rooms are, you do not have that problem. I hope you can come back some day to enjoy...
