U need a car to stay there Far out of center ! They need to maintain the hotel . My room's bathroom was missing the light bulb above the sink and could not put my contact lenses because of lack of light. Light bulb missing again in bedroom . I reported it twice , nothing happened The parking situation is a nitemare. The reception has to be rang when u arrive then the receptionist has to come out and open the gate manually for you to park your car. Same thing to get your car out . It is an inconvenience . The breakfast is light . The staff very nice .

Absolutely fine quiet comfortable cozy hotel. Rooms are impeccably clean all towels provided Wifi Beds are so comfortable elevator for the four floors Breakfast included - american European or Central American style well furnished rooms small refrigerator microwave - all for the best price below $100 - nice kitchen - a gym room available - but no swimming pool - but Costa Rica is cold!

The hotel is clean. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was specious and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is indeed a great value for the price. BUT, the hotel is 20 kilometers from the airport, and it cost me $44 to get to the hotel in traffic, and $32 to get back to the airport. Thus, the value on the hotel is not worth the cost of the transportation. If we stayed closer to the airport and paid more money for the hotel, we would have save money. I paid more money to get to the hotel than for one night stay at the hotel! If distance is not an issue, then I highly recommend the hotel.

I used this hotel as a transfer hotel upon arrival in San Jose, so I can't say much about its location to attractions, etc. But the property is beautiful, safe, and quiet. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast was made to order and tasty! A suggestion for travelers looking to make a directly with the hotel vs. through a 3rd party website, so you don't get charged more than the flat room rate!

Love it, very nice, huge room, and excellent condition, definitely recommend it. This place was very close to the city and very close to restaurants easy to find only 20 minutes to the airport everything was practically brand-new

The hotel is clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The wireless internet is fast and was reliable. There are shops, restaurants, and a food market within easy walking distance.

Had a very welcoming experience from this hotels management and staff. A wonderful help when my suitcase didn't arrive. A very pleasant dinning area and the breakfasts were great. My room had a microwaive, bar fridge, tea coffee making facilities and an in -room safe. The bed was very comfortable also. A good location for me, lovely views of coffee plantations to be had from the windows and also within range for pickup for tours. A very clean place with friendly obliging staff and lovely owners. Would definetly stay there again if in Costa Rica. They offer a postal service from this hotel postcards etc, to save guest trying to get across a very busy road.

Excellent hotel more that I expected for the price paid , very clean, secure, close to restaurants which you can walk safely. Staff and employees of hotel very nice and helpful...I Wii recommend 100%. Hotel muy limpio cerca de todo los empleados muy amables, lo recomiendo 100%

For a mid price range hotel this did not provide the necessities. Very poor supply of hot water - mainly lukewarm at best, particularly in the evening. No restaurant in the evening and no coffee making facilities. Room did include a microwave oven and a coffee maker but no supplies. The barred gate structure at the entrance may have added to security, but gave a daunting facade. The blocked drain in the shower added to the disappointment with the tepid water. This was a centrally located room. On a return visit we were given the room for those with disabilities which had no drain problem.
