Hotel Inca Real

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Kitchen staff is rude. The receptionist is lazy and not helpful. The hotel is overpriced. It was not a pleasant experience. Usually people in Costa Rica are very friendly and helpful. This hotel does not represent these traditional values of this beautiful country.

No AC Light is blinking. Some cob webs under the table. Staff very polite and friendly If you're traveling to Acosta Rica don't book your whole trip in the city. Tourist destinations are too far out about 3-4 hours drive. So one night is enough and just book your stay where you will have your adventures. Don't get me wrong Costa Rica is still one of the places you should not miss! Restrooms are all super clean. Locals are so friendly.

This hotel was advertised within 2 miles of the airport, but was 26 kilometers away. We spent about 30 dollars us traveling to and from the airport. I complained to the hotel and orbitz but of course got no refund or service whatsoever.

get a room on the ground level if you want good internet,good room with comfortable bed,they could get better not travel toward the side to the airport.

El darle a este Hotel una estrella es mucho, mal recibimiento, es un hotel de paso, lo preocupante es que se anuncia como hotel familiar y no lo es, pues reciben prostitutas con hombres a altas horas de la noche, tenian hospedados a unos españoles que no dejaron dormir toda la noche, no tiene agua caliente, sin cafetera, las fotos acerca de las habitaciones son mentiras, el desayuno continental pesimo, servido con cafe viejo, y por una cocinera enojada, no tiene estacionamiento, solo una banqueta para 3 carros, yo me tenia que salir a las 11:00am y me sali a las 8:00am, no quize tener mi familia ahi mas tiempo. Lejos del aeropuerto, pesimo Hotel, no se quede aqui con familia!

Hotel lobby interior is quaint & attractive, but rooms are basic at best. Limited hot water. Uncomfortable noisy bed. Young man at front desk was very irritating. Insisted he did not have a reservation for us, and no rooms were available, despite us having paid by credit card on line the prior evening. When his mgr found the reservation, the young man explained it often takes up to 48 hours for them to receive their online reservations. Neighborhood not good. Full of crack addicts, homeless, casinos & strip clubs. Breakfast was just rice & black beans.

This was a good hotel as an overnight transit stop. The staff were really friendly esp Damian who could assist us in English. The breakfast was terrible they should just give toast and jam. Was great to have wifi in our room to assist in our next destination plans. Overall the hotel was perfect for what we needed. Not a very nice area though. But not sure if there is a nice area in San Jose that's affordable.
