Hotel Costa Rica Morazan

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Located in the sin city area the Hotel Morazán is one of the last old school hotels left in San Jose. Despite the age of the building my room was updated with a new split unit air conditioner a good TV, a safe and a comfortable bed. The staff was very professional and friendly and there were always two or three security officers present in the lobby. Casino and big bar on the second floor allow for in house entertainment and easy money exchange. Guests get free internet and a hot breakfast with juice and coffee.

Breakfast was better the last visit. They cut out the fruit in the morning and no longer served omelette or pancakes.

Centrally located. Good breakfast. Some rooms a little noisy from the club next door.

Ok hotel. Not for kids. Good breakfast, friendly staff. Some rooms better than others. Some noises from club next door.

The hotel is in a great location for downtown activities

Jacqueline, Ricardo, and the rest of the staff and cleaning crew are very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The breakfast consists of juice, coffee or tea, a small fruit cup, and one selection from their breakfast menu. Breakfast is served from 6am-10am. The restaurant is on the 2nd floor, the lobby and casino are on the 1st floor. The hotel is very basic there are safes available, but you have to ask for the key ($25 deposit or reserve with your credit card). The location is great, the wi-fi is somewhat spotty depending on where you are in the hotel. Downtown San Jose is generally pretty noisy, so regardless of where you are in the hotel's four floors, you're going to hear a lot of street noise. Rooms are cleaned every day there are no refrigerators cable channels are plentiful hand soap and shampoo are provided. Visiting guests are not a problem. I will definitely look to make a reservation at this hotel when I return to San Jose!

As always, my stay was excellent! To me, what makes me come back to this hotel every time, are the people that work there. They make me feel at home, and are very accommodating. The staff are always friendly, and greet you with smiles, always. Special thanks to Viviana and Carlos, for making my stay so stress free and comfortable every time. I really feel a great sense of happiness and security here, and they are a big part of that. I look forward to coming back home, soon.

Room it self was clean. Hotel's location was great, and it included free breakfast which is great. I was not able to sleep due to the noises off the road. You cannot avoid the traffic noises if your room is on side of the road. Staff was friendly but the manager Ricardo is very pushy to sell you the packages for beach trips, zip lining etc. so don't listen to him.

Stay there all the time, excellent location, good prices, excellent free breakfast, very good staff, Ricardo, Carlos, Viviana, and Ricky Ricardo(El Gordo)

My experience was great! The staff is always super awesome, friendly, and helpful. The rooms are cleaned everday, and the staff always smiles and say helo. The location does not get any better. The new bar and restaurant is a nice touch. Not anything bad to say. I love San Jose, and love the Morazan.

Staff courteous and friendly, great restaurant and bar within a few blocks of downtown areas safe for walking and exploring. On checkout I had a problem that they insisted I had to pay again for my reservation which was paid in advance booking, record locator PBORB1457975274. I was forced to pay again using the same cc I had originally used to book the trip package on Aug. 13,2014, which I have already paid to the cc issuer.

The hotel has the perfect location and it is convenient to almost everything. I plan on staying there again.

It is much better now then before.New restaurant on second floor and much nicer.For the money ,value is very good.Staff is great.

The Morazan gets a bad rap, undeservedly so, in many reviews. It's not plush, and it does cater to an "adult" clientele. On the other hand, it's very clean, centrally located in San Jose, close to museums and nightlife, has a nice breakfast and a helpful staff. In the green season, it's relatively quiet, depending on the room you get. All in all, a comfortable place to stay, and a good value for the money.

Good getaway with the boys. The staff is nice, rooms get cleaned every morning. Safe overall. Only thing I didn't like is that I found a small roach in my bed despite the room getting cleaned.

Está ubicado en una zona privilegiada lo que lo hace un buen hotel.

GREAT GREAT GREAT GOOD PRICES ON DRINKS AND FOOD< GOOD FRESH BREAKFAST

Great location in the middle of downtown. Short walk to parks and the National Theater. But the hotel is very very run down and outdated. Bed wasn't good, bathroom was bad and a lot of street noise. But for $50/night downtown you can't expect more. One plus is they do not charge a fee for bringing a guest to your room

Good place to stay, close to everything, good fresh breakfast, good people there, good price drinks and free buffet in casino

This is my second review of the Morazan. I again got assigned the dreaded room 408. But asked Ricky to move me, and he gladly gave me 3 other room options. I chose 414 because it looks North to Parque Morazan, and has little traffic noise. Room 412 would have been a good choice as well. I met a guy in 411, and the noise from the key largo kept him awake. I don't care for the food here, but that is of little concern to me.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and really do hope to have you visit us again soon. Unfortunately, since we are in the middle of the city it does get a bit noisy around here at night, but we are currently undergoing changes and renovations and will take your comment into consideration to try and fix that problem in the future.
