Great spot as close to the city for shopping and restaurants but easy to get to airport and the rain forrests. We only stayed over night but both time were fine, rooms clean helpful staff and breakfast was nice.

I stayed here two separate nights and am very happy. BUT, for the free shuttle, call in advance!!! I had to pay $28 for a taxi because I didn't know (and the website isn't clear on this) you had to pre-register. Almost made my rating as average because of this.

We stayed in a total for 2 nights. The property is very clean and close to downtown. There is a casino and restaurant on site. Costa Rica national museum is only 4 blocks from this property. Beds are a little hard but over all a very nice place.

I stayed here with my boyfriend on the last night of our Costa Rican vacation. I chose this hotel for the location downtown and the free airport shuttle. The hotel is very secure and gated, located within walking distance to lots of touristy sight-seeing and great restaurants/bars. We were just advised not to walk about at night after 9:30pm. The...

Arrived San Jose for a stop over before our journey to Panama. Safe, secure hotel with casino on property. Walked around city before dark. Some cool lil parks n small shops. Sidewalks seem narrow for all the ppl! Not sure how safe it is at night. Felt safe on hotel property .

This hotel is located next door to one of the worlds most famous bars known for and specializing in purchasing "female companionship". That being said I was still appalled to see a constant parade of "female companions" and grizzled old men begin the check-in and fee paying process beginning each night around 9:00 p.m. You might also especially enjoy the...

I am a firm believer in honesty, when writing a review on Trip Adviser, and because I believe this to be important I expect the same from others. What I have to say about this hotel is probably not very complimentary but the facts are the facts. First of all, should you plan on traveling with children, do not go... More

If you are in need of a fire alarm, and there are none - well this situation would be comparable to customer service at this hotel. First of all, lets talk about WIFI, considering I was there on business and WIFI is necessary. There was none at all in the room. I had seen online reviews with this complaint but... More
