This hotel was quite far from downtown/central San Jose but I was only staying there for one night as I was meeting a tour group there. The room was spacious and clean and the bed was kind of hard/uncomfy. The grounds were well-kept and the pool was great for a mid-day swim. I didn't eat at the resto so not...

Stayed one night at the beginning of a group tour. It was okay for one stay. The beds were comfortable but not a very secure room, although the front door had a security guard all night. Hot water lasted a few minutes and you could hear scratching in the ceiling. Our room was on the second floor near the street...

Hotels location seems like a rough neighbourhood but isn't. McDonald's at the end of the street is great for morning coffee. Like others have stated walls are thin and you can hear above and outside. Motorcycles frequent the street outside and if your in a room along the street and a soft sleeper you may be bothered by it. Train...

We stayed here on a tour of Costa Rica with a group. Our room was on the ground floor, basic and dated but the bed was comfortable. The courtyard is a nice surprise with trees and shrubs around the pool and fountain area. It really isn't that appealing from the main entrance and the lobby is very tight. The rooms...

Yes..the architecture and structure of the hotel is pretty... alternatives without necessarily meaning that this is negative. It has a small pool and it's more like "aparthotel" rather than a classic hotel. Pretty friendly staff and located in a quiet neighborhood. There is Mac Donalds almost right opposite and a local fried chicken place a few meters away. Rooms pretty...

Went here and found that it was OK. The staff, especially the front desk, was helpful and friendly.The family room was spacious, but the clock didn't work, the stoves burners were all messed up and there were cigarette burns on the couch and one of the sheets. The Wi-Fi was sometimes spotty in our room. The breakfast was not nearly...

Formerly Apartel El Sesteo, this quaint little neighborhood hotel was a favorite of ours when visiting family in The Sabana Sur area of San Jose. However, since it was sold to a Chinese chain, it has suffered a bit of neglect. The restaurant still had a delicious free breakfast, but I hated when they ran out of certain items and...

This is a strange hotel. On the plus side the room was clean and comfortable, the pool area a really nice place to hang out and the staff efficient and friendly. On the down side there is no bar, something we would have appreciated on the final night of a long trip and the hotel seems to have a rather...

We stayed here for two nights as part of a larger group package. Hot water was not to had nor was an adequate supply of towels. Air conditioning was not an option. I wouldn't trust the room's door to keep out a strong wind let alone someone who wanted to break into your room. There is a bonus of staying...
