    Clean and comfortable hotel

    Would recommend Mon, Aug 31, 2015
    I really enjoyed this hotel. The beds are EXTREMELY comfortable, the rooms are large and clean, and the staff is attentive and knowledgeable. The pool is nice and large and there is a real gym a Golds Gym on the property. The hotel is located near downtown, like a $5 cab ride. Only problem with location is it is located in an area that makes it difficult to hale a cab from the street and using the cabs at the hotel are a lot more expensive. Definitely recommend for singles and families

    An Oasis in the middle of a chaotic neighborhood.

    Would not recommend Fri, Jul 24, 2015
    Overall our stay was good once we arrived at the Radisson in San Jose. Unfortunately this very nice hotel is an oasis located in a rundown commercial neighborhood lined with auto parts and tire stores. The streets are extremely crowded, noisy and busy with commercial traffic. The sidewalks are a challenge to walk as they are uneven with lots of gaps or holes. It was quite scary trying to cross the streets at times as we dodged cars, trucks and motor bikes. One of the reasons I chose this hotel was because it listed Airport shuttle under amenities. However, there was no airport shuttle. So as a result we had to pay $60 RT for a taxi. In fact no hotels in the center of San Jose or near the airport provide free shuttles. You have to take taxis. I wish I had known that previously. On the positive side the hotel and restaurant staff were wonderful, the room was comfortable and clean and the free breakfast buffet was very good. We did not check out the casino. My last critique is that I was told at check in that we had bottled water for our use. But when I checked out, I was billed $10 for water we drank. Apparently, you only get free water for one night only. We had stayed 3 nights. I would stay at another Radisson, especially for the price we paid, however, I would definitely investigate the neighborhood beforehand.

    Ordinary trip

    Would not recommend Mon, Apr 13, 2015
    This was my second time to stay at this hotel and again I was disappointed and regretted to stay there. I stayed at one of master suites and refrigerator was located in a bedroom. Of course I was annoyed with the noise all night long. I made several local calls to make restaurant reservations and guess what at the checkout all local calls were charged. Most hotels offer local calls free of charge. It was not much amounts. But where are courtesy services? Nonetheless at my first stay two months ago even when I got there after 4:00pm still my room was not ready. And this time I was told my room was checked in already by me according to their computer system who arrived at San Jose just an hour ago. With the amount I paid for, the value of money was the way below... Won't stay here again.

    Hotel is good

    Would recommend Mon, Mar 9, 2015
    The hotel is very nice and the breakfast service is awesome they have many things. The location is horrible only because San jose traffic is third world and hard to get to from route 1. If you plan on traveling by bus it's not bad as it's the closest location probably less than a 1000 feet away. Personally I would stay by airport if you rent vehicle so that you can avoid the ridiculous traffic and roads. The hotel pool is very cold but nice size. Good luck travelers each taxi service from hotel to airport is 30 dollars which isn't too bad.

    Would recommend Wed, Aug 13, 2014
    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.
