“Hotel Plaza Real”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

We stayed at the Plaza Real for 2 nights of our trip in Costa Rica. The hotel staff was more than accommodating and helpful. We were trying to plan a trip to Tortuguero (remote island in Costa Rica) and they went above and beyond, helping us make calls to other hotels and assisting us in researching on the internet. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast could have been a little more plentiful but we had busy days planned so there wasn't a lot of time to sit around and enjoy a big breakfast anyway. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Costa Rica.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

This is a great small hotel with many different types of room options for all travelers--traditional rooms, suites, large apartments. Everything in the hotel is amazingly clean and the entire staff works extremely hard to help out its guests in any way possible. Wonderful staff! It's a bit of a distance from the downtown area, and many people like that, especially business travelers. If you like to be in the bustle of San Jose, however, you may want to stay right in the heart of the city instead. It really depends what you're looking for and your reason for traveling. This hotel has free, reliable WI-FI, free continental breakfast, and free parking. The only downside was that there were no restaurants or eateries within a block or two of the hotel, but if you don't mind a bit of a walk you can get to a few further away. But food can always be delivered to your room from a multitude of restaurants in the area.

The hotel is placed in Uraca outside San José in a nice, quiet neighborhood east of downtown San José. Restaurants are within walking distance. It is easy accessible having your own car. We do not know if there is also a bus service to the hotel. Downtown San José can be reached in about 15 min.
The big rooms provide good comfort, such as excellent beds and bathroom facilities.
Very nice personnel

If you're looking for a decent stay right outside the bustling city, this hotel is a great option. The immediate area around the hotel is residential with a few warehouses. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms have been recently remodeled. I had one issue, there was no iron in the room. A short walk down the street will take you to the Best Western hotel which has a Denny's, bar, and casino.

Room Tip: Request the European suite.
