Used to be able to handle this place for a night. They have changed ownership and no longer allow a small pet which puts them off the map for us. Price is just OK, food poor, coffee weak, creepy ceilings that are hard to look up at, traffic very noisy, and easy to hear your neighbors. Carpet that is old...

for staying in San Jose for one or two nights, it´s a good alternative. It´s not far from the center, you can walk easily within 15 min. Sometimes you hear a noise from a train but thats all noises you can hear. The rooms and the surrounding is ok. Nice Poolarea but without a bar. Point to highlight: very friendly...

A good hotel in San Jose, if you only stay for a night. All in all is very average, nothing to write home about. Location is quiet, if you can overhear an occasional whistle of a train passing by. Small garden with a small pool, no bar, but a fridge with drinks.

This apartment/hotel is about 20-30 minutes from the airport in San José. It looks like a warehouse from the outside, but is really very nice once you get inside. We have stayed here many times and each time, the hotel is a welcome relief from the noise and congestion of the city. The location is just right. It's a quick...

I recently stayed in El Sesteo for several days when I was in San Jose for Dental treatment. The rooms are very clean, but a bit dreary. They are poorly lit, so it's hard to read. The pool area is nice, with lush landscaping. Only a few rooms have air conditioning, so you have to keep the windows open for...

This is simply an excellent hotel to choose if you're in San José, and I stay here every time I come to Costa Rica. The location is perfect (very centric), the tropical landscaping and outdoor pool are wonderful, and the prices are more than reasonable for a hotel of this quality. Above all, the staff is friendly, attentive, and will...
