Costa Rican Getaway

Overall the Hotel was nice, the only cons was that certain rooms do not come with central air. If any of you dont know central air is important in Costa Rica, the climate is very hot and humid. Im assuming you have to request the rooms with air. Miguel (a Hotel KC Colaye employee) was rude on several occasions! However, everyone else was pleasant!!! A very great country with beautiful, kind hearted people!

Good, Clean Hotel

Hotel KC San Jose Colaye is clean, with a pleasant staff, many of who are bi-lingual. This is not a luxury hotel, but the price can't be beat for a good, clean place to sleep & re-charge while in San Jose.

Good hotel, great staff

The staff are very friendly and helpful. They are very patient and answer almost every question. Hotel room is clean. But need some improvement, especially the bathroom, some more space to hold personal items. Need to provide enough utensils in the studio rooms. Over all, it's a nice stay at this hotel.

Great Hotel!

This hotel is a great! It has everything you need it's clean the staff are very pleasant they offer many tours if your interested in going to the rainforest or volcanos which are great. They are in a nice location about a 10min. drive to the city. If your on a budget and looking for the basics then I would choose this hotel.

It was ok.

It was nothing special. It was cheap compared to other places near by. If you're just using it to sleep, it's perfect.

They don't have a gym but the sports park is a block away. They have a track, basketball courts, soccer fields, and a little pond to walk/ jog around.

very nice, great value

Very clean roomy rooms, friendly staff, ok breakfast included and a clean nice size pool. The outside surroundings were kind of shabby, hotel was very inexpensive and about 9 miles from airport. Close enough to the center of San Jose without the high cost. We just needed a place to spend the night and clean up after traveling all day then be on our way to the beach cities. This was just the perfect spot.

Hidden, but nice

The hotel was difficult to find. No street signs, the hotel sign was small and unlighted (it was night when we tried to find it). I had to get a McDonald's bicycle delivery man to show me where it was, and then ask another 2 people to finally find the hotel. The restaurant does not serve a full menu at night. The rooms were clean and the hotel well-maintained. Check-in was difficult because they had no record of our reservation. This was cleared up after showing a receipt. The staff were friendly.

Close, but no cigar

The hotel was not well marked by a sign. The clerk didn't have our reservation from [...] and I had to show a copy of the receipt.The room was clean and quiet, but the restaurant didn't have an evening meal. A McDonald's and a fried chicken place were close, as were a small Chinese restaurant and a sandwitch shop.It is close to Highway 1 and the Caldera Highway, but does not have anything to direct the visitor to the hotel, no street signs, etc. The small sign was not lighted and even when pointed out, was hard to see.Once there, the hotel was pretty good with an adequate breakfast bar. There was no restaurant open during the evening hours and the area is not the greatest.

If you're looking for a great location in San Jose, go elsewhere. If you're looking for a pretty good deal, this isn't bad, but be ready to have to ask for directions from someone at the McDonalds who delivers in the area...

My sister and I were in Costa Rica for significant dental work. Taxi was reasonable to and from the dental facility. Complimentary airport pick up and return was very helpful. Snack bar has sandwiches and salads that were very good. Local AM/PM market had wonderful avacados and mangoes. Front desk was very helpful in helping to navigate the free PCs in the lobby.
