Holiday Inn Express San Jose Costa Rica Airport Hotel
Catedral,San Jose - View on map
"We stayed in this hotel the first night upon arrival in Costa Rica and we enjoyed the stay. They have an airport shuttle that picks you up and brings you straight to the hotel within 10 minutes. Hotel is across from the airport Denny's which is a well known spot for pick up if you are planning any tours like us. We would definitely stay here again next time."
