    Beautiful, clean, good breakfast... smells a little musty.

    Really enjoyed this hotel. Was only one night but the room was beautiful. We walked down to San Jose and enjoyed the markets. Location was quiet and great. Only negative was that the room was a bit musty smelling. But with the humidity in Costa Rica, all hotel rooms smell musty.

    Very comfortable

    While my room was quite a walk from the hotel entrance, the bed was the best I've slept on in Costa Rica. The staff is very helpful and the hotel is well maintained. The only downside is that the bathrooms could use some remodeling.

    family getaway

    The hotel was average. I really like the customer service. They were helpful and welcoming. The pool was too cold for the kids to play in so we just used the jacuzzi. I was disappointed with the location. I didn't feel safe and was stared at ever corner while trying to get some water bottles. Not a place to stay if you want to take walks. Breakfast was good and more than I have expected. Nothing special about this hotel.

    Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

    One block away and located in a bus station. But really I did not feel safe. There is nothing around that area and the hotel food is expensive. I ordered pizza from papa johns and it cost me an arm and a leg $40 for 2 large pizza, 1 order of bread sticks and a 2 L COKE FOR $5 SO CHECK YOUR ORDER THEY MIGHT TRY TO SCAM YOU.

    Dental visit solo traveler

    Stayed at a few other hotels in San Jose (The Tryp and The Beacon in Escazu) but ended up coming back to the Radisson. San Jose doesn't have much to offer the tourist save the medical and dental services. I found the Radisson safe, clean, have good room service, very spacious rooms with nice bedding and high ceilings (no views at all though) and a Golds Gym on property. Wish there was a spa though.
