Recent guest reviews

Great hotel, they offered complimentary airport pick up which is a great advantage when you first arrive in the Country. Room was clean, although a little noisy early in the morning, seems San Jose starts the Day around 6am Staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast met our needs, restaurants and supermarkets quite close by

This hotel was absolutely beautiful! The staff was very kind and accommodating. The breakfast was delicious and the room was spectacular. The air conditioning was much needed after a day of travel and the shower was huge. The bathroom included a magnifying mirror and enough room for two people to get ready. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of this hotel but I would highly recommend it to anyone. I will definitely be booking this again if I’m ever in San Jose.

Our experience was excellent, very good service and comfortable rooms! The hotel is very clean and in very good conditions. Very close to the center of San Jose, the neighborhood is safe, you can walk everywhere.

The hotel staff is friendly and knowledgable. The hotel was relatively easy to get to, and has private parking with security. The room had ample space and was very clean with all needed amenities. Very nice breakfast included. When the elevator broke down the staff helped carry our luggage and were very friendly and helpful.

Located in a nice area of San Jose with plenty to do and see. Cute cafe/bar located in hotel. Artwork really shows that it is close to an art gallery in San Jose. Gift shop near lobby check in, you can purchase snacks, water etc!!!

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff was friendly, especially the staff in Iconos, the hotel's restaurant. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and nice. Just remember you can't flush toilet paper. Not a big deal at all, but something to remember especially if you're accustomed to flushing toilet paper. It did take a long time for the shower water to heat up, but that's no big deal. Just something to be mindful of. Your stay comes with breakfast every day and the breakfast was delicious. We stayed on the second floor, which I recommend because the elevator is a little slow. We could hear traffic and people talking on the street. This did not bother us at all, but it is something to consider. If I were to visit San Jose again, I would stay here. Pros: Breakfast, hotel staff, rooms were pretty spacious, bright, and clean; good location Negatives: Street noise (we stayed on the second floor)

The hotel was perfect for the two nights I stayed. The staff was helpful and friendly. The restaurant is very good and I really liked their breakfast. Rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. The traffic noise outside could be loud at times, but it didn’t disturb my sleep. I liked the airport shuttle service. It was on time and less expensive than a taxi.

I booked a stay here over Christmas that was then cancelled due to a scheduling conflict. The hotel confirmed that my cancellation was processed & my money would be credited back to the card used for the reservation. All looked legitimate and should have panned out smoothly - information was sent to the hotel and they confirmed it would be done in a matter of a few business days. It's been over a month and I've gotten nothing back. It's been surprisingly difficult getting someone to respond now to my concerns and I feel like my email contact just gets flagged and disregarded. I'm not sure if there's just a disconnect between what the hotel claims and what they do, but it feels frustrating to say the least and all I want is for someone at the hotel to take me seriously and refund my money.

This hotel was good for last night before leaving Costa Rica. This place is perfect if you are there for a business trip, as Hollidays, no, go somewhere else. To resume, this place has no charm but is comfortable.

Small but lovely and cosy hotel. Nice decor, especially in Reception area and restaurant.Good buffet breakfast. Excellent food in the restaurant, reasonably priced with great service. Well worth trying the tasty themed buffet lunch during the week. a nice variety of dishes modestly priced. Pleasant and clean rooms. The staff were most friendly, polite and helpful. Good location as only 20 to 30 mn(depending on time of the day) away from airport. Also about 25 mn walk from town centre. Well known museum and big park nearby as well as other amenities: shops, restaurants. Would definitely considerstaying there again.
