This was a great property and a great value. Wonderful location near casino, restaurants, and downtown. Wonderful staff and great service. i would stay here again. The neighborhood seemed pretty safe and just slightly out of downtown. It was an easy walk to the pedestrian streets.

you guys are awesome. so happy that american express travel recommended. thank you. housekeeper was sweet and made sure my stay was pleasant; front desk crew was as well. mr marcos always recieved me with a smile. all are very serviceable. restaurant staff was awesome as well. all were top notch.

I stayed at Hotel Dunn Inn in September 2017 on 2 occasions for a total of 3 nights. This is a good hotel. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with recommending things to do in the area and booking buses to other cities. The rooms were very clean and average sized. The complimentary breakfast was convenient and filling. This hotel is located in a great place - walking distance to many parks, the national theater, and museums. I definitely recommend this hotel!

We travelled for two weeks with a rented car and the location were perfect to go on the highway very quickly. There are a few restaurants in the area and the location/price were great! I recommand it.

The hotel is in a great location....plenty of places to walk to....i signed a paper stating prostitution of children and adolescents was not allowed...which it should be.however if I wanted to bring adult women,I could not do it. I left.if your a single man traveling solo,this might not be for you.

We stayed two nights in San Jose in the middle of our trip. The location of this hotel was great, the area felt quite safe walking into town although we did find one area nearby that I wouldn't have been happy in after nightfall. We had some laundry done which was a fast and good service but by far the most expensive on our 3 week trip. The bed was comfy and the room facilities were good, we didn't have an external window but my goodness it was noisy, car horns blaring all night, I hardly slept at all. The breakfast which was included was embarrassing, they'd be better not bothering. We only had two poor meals during our stay and both were in SJ. Two slices of slightly dry bread, a slice of cheap pre formed ham and some unpleasant rubbery cheese. We left it and went elsewhere to eat. Staff were generally pleasant.

My girlfriend and i booked into this hotel as it was the starting and ending point of a group tour we were doing in Costa Rica. It was a very nice hotel. Though it is an old hotel and not a 5 star resort, it was very clean, comfortable, and had very warm and welcoming staff. Of which some spoke very good English and entertained my attempts at Spanish haha. Great central location with my girlfriend and we just walked everywhere we wanted to go to into the main CBD of San Jose. Banks, ATM, convenience stores, shops, fast food, parks, museums, its all within 5-10 mins walk. Also across the road and to the left a bit is a big hotel that has an awesome Italian Restaurant on the street corner that had the best wood fired pizzas, which yes its not traditional Costa Rican food, but was perfect for a close dinner when we arrived at the hotel at 9pm after our flight. Generally speaking don't walk outside the hotel(or anywhere in the city really) too far a night alone. Even in pairs or groups there are still dodgy people and places you may encounter.

Room 29 has a window facing the bar, where there is very loud, live music. This is unacceptable. There is also a rather loud alarm in the corridor that is not turned off when it goes off at night (happened the 2 nights I stayed there). Other people I travelled with complained about noise because their room was close to the reception or close to the street (heavy trucks driving down the Calle 5). Never again!

Excellent location. Friendly, helpful staff who are fluent in English! The rooms were clean & comfortable but a lot of noise can be heard making it difficult if you're a light sleeper! The bar is also very expensive (1500colones for small bottle of water!)

I stayed in this hotel for two nights at different times over a period of two weeks, and on both occasions the staff were amazing. Very polite, helpful and genuinely nice. The rooms are decent, again with the two rooms I had (standard twin), one room was far better and lavish than the other. I think they are trying to refurb so that all rooms are of higher spec. All in all, its location is good and easy to find, and its quiet.
