Decent Hotel

Pros: Located in the heart of the city. Decent price. Room was clean. There is a safe in the room to lock your stuff. There were no "ladies of the night" in the hotel like other reviews have said. I didn't have any problems checking in (I checked in twice, once at the beginning of my trip and once at the end). Breakfast in the morning was simple but good. Cons: There is a dance floor on the 2nd floor. If you are on the 3rd floor you will hear the music all night long. 4th floor isn't as bad, but there's no WiFi. 5th floor has both WiFi and no noise.

honest and super friendly staff

You will not be disappointed with the quality of this hotel. It doesn't look like much and the location is right in the center of this busy city, but the place is clean, the rooms are large, and it's centrally located. The staff and managers are very friendly and helpful though not everyone speaks English which is of course to be expected. The complimentary breakfast is great, and the casino and nightclub downstairs well worth visiting if you enjoy watching great dance performances. It's also a great jump-off point if you only want to do a day or two in San Jose and then explore other regions since the bus stop is just a few blocks away. I stayed over 2 weeks and would definitely return.

Good place to stay but not close car park

It was a nice experience to stay in this hotel/casino. Don't expect to be in Las Vegas though! People were nice, the room was fine, breakfast really good. The only bad point was that the car park was kind of 3 blocks away, but it is a closed car park without fee to pay. A good place to stay.

Just a little out of the heart of San Jose

I was on the top floor (5th), good large room, no problems with the room although the internet never seemed to work when I needed it. The phones are impossible so dont even try and you will be charged a fortune. If you can get through the chirping of the stupid street crossing noise you will be ok. Its San Jose and thats just the way it is there. I would stay there again only because the prices of just about everything is going sky high (hard to believe). Staff was fine, safes in the rooms, no theft problems at all. Breakfast was fine, waitress was a peach. I just think San Jose is history now however other than the beautiful women. Traffic is too far gone now. Dont even think about renting a car. Traffic is backed up now somewhat all the way to the airport when it used to be a beautiful drive. Next time Im going to the beaches and will stay out of San Jose. It was once a great secret now completely gone in my opinion.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

There isnt much to do in San Jose at all except the nightlife. It makes a long day when the only thing to do is shop and see prices that were once one fith of what they are now.

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,,,

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.

Extremely helpful staff

The young guy at the front desk was awesome, and even loaned me his memory card when I lost mine. I liked this place, but be aware the nightclub is deafening loud if you're trying to sleep on the weekends..
