My family and I recently stayed at Apartotel La sabana during our travels in Costa Rica. The hotel is spacious and quiet, a relief for the busyness and chaos of San Jose. My daughters spent hours in the swimming pool and enjoyed making friends with other children staying at the hotel. I enjoyed the aesthetic touches in the common areas... More

Our plane landed at 840pm so we just needed a place to rest our heads before heading to monteverde. This place was perfect. They had an excellent breakfast and a beautiful pool. Not sure how the neighborhood is cause we were in and out but they had to keep the front door locked. No problems for us though.

You'll be impressed when they open the door for you when you arrive, and offer you a latte or juice while you're checking in. The rooms may be small in some cases, but the details are exceptional. Wineglasses in the room, glass ice buckets, ceiling fans, and beautiful flowers everywhere. Breakfast is included in the price and it is beyond... More

This little boutique hotel was so sweet and pretty. The city of San Jose is so loud and busy, that this place is the perfect little oasis to escape, while still being in the heart of San Jose.
