I need to express my gratitude for the best customer service I have ever received from any hotel - even before my check-in. I sent an e-mail to this hotel via their website about two weeks before my arrival date - expecting to not hear back for a long time - if ever. Within minutes of sending my e-mail I received a lengthy and detailed response directly from the hotel manager! Jose not only answered my question immediately - but he added so much extra and useful information. He went above and beyond - far more than with any hotel I have ever reached out to for help. This was excellent customer service - maybe the best I have ever had. And that's a very important aspect of customer service in general. Thank you so much!

The location is great, but the room we stayed in was extremely dated and hot. The breakfast was lacklustre. The selection was poor and the coffee was really bad. On the other hand, the staff was very helpful.

We stayed here for a night after landing in San Jose and were welcomed warmly. It was good value and comfortable with an adequate breakfast and made us feel that we had arrived. The rooms had air conditioning and were quiet. Parking was around the block but secure

We stayed at the Hotel La Guaria at the start and end of our 2 weeks in Costa Rica. It's location close to the airport and free transfers made it the perfect choice. The concierge was extremely helpful and guided us to some very good restaurants and shopping in the area The Hotel itself is basic but clean and with every amenity that you will need for a city break or a short stop.

We st as yes here upon arriving in san jose.our room was huge, comfortable and clean. The bed was fantastic, we had a nice sitting area and balcony. The wifi was good, air conditioner was strong and the staff was very helpful. Prenty of hot water! Free airport shuttle and beakfast were nice as well. Close to lots of restaurants and several attractions. We would definitely stay here again!

Everything about this hotel is spot on. Taxi: free to and from the airport! Just take the orange taxi from the airport Front Desk: Check in was quick. I give my props to Ariana. She saved me from a taxi driver who was hooking for $5 to bring me to a restaurant. She heard the bulls@#t and she just cut the guy off and pointed to a nice restaurant just a block away! Room: My room was clean, nice thick towels, nice sheets, bed, TV, AC, HOT COLD WATER Location: 5 minutes from the airport. Very close to nice budget diners and parks ERGO: If you want a nice relaxing night before your flight, this is the hotel!

Stayed here due to proximity to airport...for meeting a lat flight. Great location, nice staff, upgraded to a family room which was large....small but nice pool. Great restaurants nearby, about 2 blocks off Central was able to walk to the Mercado, bank, and museum, and churches for sight-seeing during our short stay. Front desk staff were fabulous...calling cabs, directions, suggestions. Only thing I didn’t like was the breakfast...continental....

I would have given a better rating because the hotel is well located ,breakfast is included and they have a shuttle to the airport but the beds were not the greatest.I've had better beds in hostels. But it is a good deal for2 people

The place is a bit spartan but for the price it is ok if you want a simple accommodation near the airpot which was my primary reason for staying here. I would not stay here as a base to see San Jose. On the map the streets look quite small so I didn't expect it to be a major truck and bus route. We had the largest room, a huge family suite on the corner which meant that the bus and traffic noise was there most of the time. The backside of the hotel could be much quieter. As a suggestion to make life easier for guests I'd suggest more hooks for hanging clothes in the bathroom. There's a a reasonable amount of room just no place to hang up clothes. The a/c worked quite well and the hotel feels well managed. We requested parking and they have a great arrangement with the parking garage 30 feet away from the hotel. The location nearer to the airport was my main criteria in selecting this hotel.

Room was Spartan,very old furniture,tiny bathroom,not real clean.I opened the door and was greeted by a centipede,squished him.Good location near some really good restaurants,walking distance.I had an excellent meal at Chiwake, Peruvian.The hotel employees were nice and helpful.
