What I liked the most about the hotel is that when we arrived the owner received us with a smile, he was really kind! Also the patio it's perfect to sit and relax. The staff was really helpful and polite!

We rally enjoyed the hotel because it has everything you need. The fact there's no ac didn't matter as the weather was chili anyway and when we opened window it was cold enough. The fact there's breakfast surprised us and it was really nice and beyond what we expected. The hotel staff and owner are very very very nice and...

A short stay here. The room was simple and sufficient. The wifi only worked in the lobby and not in the room. The staff were kind and helpful. They recommended a restaurant nearby and I cannot remember the name of it. We are vegan and it had delicious vegan options.

Located 1km from Holiday Inn and near to almost everything you need for short stay. Vincent is the nicest hotel owner you'll meet; informative and accommodating. I found the rooms rustic enough to be amusing, comfortable, spacious and yet not wasteful. Breakfast (included) is sufficient to sustain you for the morning, especially when enjoyed in the garden. The coco crispies...

The hotel had big, tidy and lovely rooms. Staff was incredibly nice and owner (Vincent) was very helpful giving advice in all aspects regarding transportation, daytrips, etc. Nice breakfast Quiet part of San Jose but close to downtown.

This hotel had great reviews and beautiful pictures. We were terribly disappointed to learn the real state of this hotel. The room was in complete disrepair: the faucet, the electrical outlets, the tv was broken, the light bulb was burned out, the closed off its hinge... etc etc. The floors were not cleaned well and had dust bunnies all over...

Kekoldi Hotel is usually our choice in San Jose. We like the nearby restaurants, downtown location and its proximity to the Havana Humidor room just two or three blocks down the street. Kekoldi Hotel offers great value in the location we like most when visiting San Jose. The staff is always helpful and the funky, bohemian folks that stay here...

Kekoldi is only a 5 minute walk away from the Plaza de la Cultura, with the Teatro Nacional and three important museums. The Mecado Central is maybe 10 minutes walk. The rooms are large and light, the breakfast okay, and the staff bend over backwards to try to be helpful. Will definitely stay here again. Clean, reasonable, friendly, with just...

Unfortunately I had the front room facing the street, all night long there were scooters zooming and gunning their engines. It is NOISY and there was construction going on across the street. It was pretty much a bare room, a bed, 2 tables with 2 lamps, a desk with a chair. The windows were open when I got there, which...

This hotel is in the center of the city so it is noisy but I expected that. My room was on the street but there were other rooms inside that had a nice view of the garden and maybe were quieter. It was clean and adequate. The staff were nice and helpful. The breakfast was adequate. Beautiful garden to sit...
