    never found the place!

    Costa Rica has no street addresses and is particularly hard to get around, especially in San Jose. We were never able to find the hotel, so found a Best Western and stayed there. Would never book packages again as we also had MANY problems with Spirit Air as well.

    Excellent location and value for the money!

    In the heart of downtown! Walk out the front door onto the central avenue and be mere steps from the National Theater, Cultural Plaza and Gold Museum. Large rooms with mini-fridge, satellite TV, roomy bathrooms, AC and a balcony with fantastic views of the plaza, central avenue, city and mountains. (Request a room as high as possible with balcony) The included breakfast is simple but delicious. The staff is very friendly and bilingual. The only downside is the noise from the street but that is easily remedied with earplugs and certainly worth the location and views. All this for extremely reasonable prices if you book online.

    Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

    Visit the Gold Museum and National Theater right outside your front door. Walk a couple blocks east to the National Museum. Walk a couple blocks west to the central market and eat like a local!
