My 12 night stay

Overall a good experience,staff were very friendly,Maria at front desk changed my room from a double bed to king size bed in no time.Free breakfast was good enough n was the same everyday,lunch buffet was different n decent n good at about $6 n location was awesome close to national museum,buses n central park n central market,Internet speed was not excellent but fast enough to get by social sites & uploading pictures n even skype.They also had DJ & live band 3 nights a week at the club on the 2nd floor not bad if you're a fan of Salsa dance,,,the rooms were very clean n seemed to be remodeled recently,shower was also clean & had good water pressure,over all this hotel is worth to try it out,good price & good for single people,i don't recommend it for families & i'd definitely go back there again,,,

nothing was right

we arrived to the hotel and it was over booked, they gave us directions in Spanish to walk to another hotel 7 blocks away. Hotel Europa. The water leaked 24 hours. No consistent hoy water. Smell from the sinks pluming, and they where stingy with the towels, and wash cloths period.

Average.

This is a very average hotel. Perfect for a single traveler or for a couple of guys. There is free wifi in your room which is a big plus. You can also make free local calls downstairs with the front desk. Definitely NOT a family hotel. There is a club on the second floor which is nice (once again if you are by yourself or with the guys). Location is the BEST part. Close to lots of dining and local attractions.

Use to be worth the price

Stayed at this hotel many times, it seem to get worse every time while the price increases. It is now not worth the problems that always occur, ie: Wifi not working cable not working , poor breakfast, mold in rooms, noise, rude staff (not all). This trip I got 2-rooms and asked for the same floor (not possible) that's it nothing else could be done. I've stayed here over 50 times, which makes me very qualified to write this review. Many other hotels in the same price range now.

The BEST budget option in San Jose

This hotel is clean, friendly and located in the HEART of downtown San Jose. The rooms are real hotel rooms with AC, satellite TV, big private bathrooms, closets and safe. Downstairs there is a casino and club which seems a little sketchy as you enter but do not be put off by it. The hotel above is a great value for the money and if you want to play or party it is just an elevator ride away. Also, the national theater and gold museum are only 3 blocks away, the national museum is 5 blocks and the central avenue (walking and shopping avenue) is just one block north. I live in Costa Rica and visit San Jose often and this is the only place I stay so consider this insider info. Some tips: 1. shop around online for prices. They charge $70 at the door for 2 people but I got the same for $43 online. 2. Ask for a room on the 4th or 5th floor and away from the street so you are not right above the disco.

Great location

The royal Dutch had very friendly staff and were very helpful. It's one block to central ave and the market. Near a lot of buses too. Not the most up to date place but for money was really good. Got free breakfast which was good to start day. Wouldn't recommend for family's. For people trying to check out the city it is great.
