    Great location, safe, friendly staff <3”

    Love staying here when I need one night of 'luxury' before taking off to my hostels. Great location in the middle of San Jose near the central market and shopping area. The free buffet breakfast has lots of options, but not if your vegan and gluten free like me. I usually can only eat fruit, potatoes, and some mixed vegetables in tomato sauce. Still yummy! They have a nice gym I like to use with a TV. Also, most of the rooms have bathtubs which is a huge plus for me since I LOVE baths and it's usually the only spot I get to take one before or after the rest of my travels. The staff is also very friendly and helpful! This is my spot. :)

    Cool accommodation in Central San Jose”

    The rooms a spacious und very clean, we srayed with our two kids 9 and 12 at the 10th floor with a great view on San Jose. The highl for our boys was definitely the indoor pool on the third floor. Of all included breakfasts in Costa Rica during our three weeks journey this one was absolutely the best.

    Needs renovation”

    Location, price, friendly staff

    I have stayed in this hotel for many times over the past 6 years and it wasn't the newest when I first came here. The location is very good and this was my main criteria for coming back (I initially had already booked another hotel further out the city center). However, this place is really in need of a renovation by now. Loose fittings in the bathroom, dirty carpets and old television sets, etc. Everything works though. Staff is friendly. Rooms are decently sized and come with a safety deposit box and iron/ironing board for the business traveler. Beds are comfortable and the hotel is quiet at night. Breakfast buffet is alright with choice of hot dishes including breads and fruits. I really like this hotel, but without a renovation I'm more likely to check out other options next time.

    It was ok...not great but ok”

    Internet, good room, good breakfast

    Part good and part bad. The hotel was clean and the room was nice. It seems to be a business/conference hotel. The swimming pool was not good. I have been told that it is unsafe to walk around downtown San Jose at night. I had no problems and did not fear too much concern for safety but I have good situational awareness. If you rent the room through Agoda breakfast is not included which cuts into the realized discount. Then you have to pay for breakfast how good is the discount? As an aside, leave for the airport early. You will have to wait in line to pay the airport tax not included in your air fare. Costa Rica is a beautiful country but I felt that someone was trying to put their hand in my pocket. I would go back but not stay in this hotel. If you are traveling as a couple or for a business conference then it would be fine.

    OK for overnight stay and access to museums”

    location, bell man

    reserved executive king (on high executive floor we thought) but got "upgraded"(?) to a suite (not often used or serviced) on the 6th floor. It was OK for 1 night. Restaurant on the top floor (17th?) was used almost entirely for large groups so we did not bother to sit somewhere squeezed in a narrow dog-leg. Instead we bought a picnic at a grocery and ate in our room. Early morning taxi to the airport at 5 am was fast.

    There is not much to say about the hotel. It is rather standard, a bit old. The interior can use a refresh. Wash basin clogged one time, but fixed quickly. The location is very good.
