Recent guest reviews

Relaxing place - just what we needed before flying out of San Jose. All the staff were helpful and the restaurant was accommodating with a great breakfast. I highly recommend staying here. If flying into San Jose again, this is going to be the place we go!

The hotel was very clean and had a great restaurant. You felt very safe. The area was beautiful and the staff was amazing. It was relaxing and enjoyable.

Very nice hotel. We stayed here the night before our flight out of San Jose.

We stayed at the studio hotel one night before taking our flight from SJO Airport. Was a nice room with all the expected amenities. The breakfast buffet was the typical Costa Rican breakfast with cereal and juice. There are several shopping centers nearby so you can easily walk to resturants, a grocery store, and gas station from the hotel.

Great staff, beautiful hotel, restaurant was great, and felt welcoming

I would not recommend this hotel. The staff is lazy and did not seem interested in much of anythig.

We arrived late in the day and we were accommodated well. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The staff was excellent Eileen at front desk very helpful with any of our questions. We really liked being able to walk across the street and find several restaurants close by. The hotel was very clean . The only complaint I have is that the small pool was ice cold perhaps they should consider a solar cover or something to maintain a little warmth it was not usable for the average guest. I was quite pleased with the helpfulness of staff

Have stayed many times at this hotel since it was built. It only gets better, beautiful art work throughout the hotel, new bar and eatery. Close to shopping and central to highway access.

The hotel is decorated with Costa Rican art on every floor and it is simply stunning! The hotel staff is incredibly nice and helpful. The breakfast buffet offers plenty of choice and the best coffee! If you have a rental car, there is free parking and the location is convenient for taking day trips. It is also close to an area with many different restaurants (seafood, Indian, Mongolian, Asian, etc.) and a supermarket. I would stay at the hotel again. The first few nights there were some Christmas parties hosted at the hotel and other noise past 10pm, which was bothersome, but it was not a nightly occurrence.

The four of us stayed here two weeks before Christmas. We absolutely love everything about this place because it gives you a very boutique feel. Without a massive amount of rooms and guests, the staff was very attentive to our needs. If you're looking for a place to party, this is not your place. However, it is perfect for us as first timers in Costa Rica because we felt safe and pampered.

Very nice and we are staying again in November. The prices for food and alcohol are too expensive

Excellent experience lovely place. Great staff, great room, wonderful art work in the hotel cool pool.

Not vegan friendly, breakfast under average. Expected better quality and more variety.

We were happy with everything but the breakfast. A lot of room for improvement! Those little hot dogs for breakfast were awful as well were the beans. Most of the time we weren't sure about what kind of potato's we were being served,. No choice of breads, only white. We would rate this breakfast a 2 at the most!

Airport shuttle service, delicious complimentary breakfasts, a rooftop pool, clean rooms, comfortable bedding, beautiful artwork lining the walls... all these and more made for a great stay in San Jose.

The service was excellent. The staff was very helpful. The hotel itself immaculate. I would definitely be returning and would recommend this place to friends and family.

Everything exceeded our expectations Wenhad a great time in Costa Rica

I loved my stay at this hotel! It has so many beautiful pieces of art in the hallways, lobby and restaurant. And it has the most magnificent tree in the parking lot just outside the front door. I ate at the restaurant and really enjoyed my dinner. The location is outside of downtown San Jose, but that's a good thing because it is quiet and safe, and it's relatively close to the airport.

Staff was incredibly friendly, and the room and all common areas were beautiful and immaculately clean. Roof top bar and pool were amazing. Bed was incredibly comfortable. Free brunch was ok, but it was free.

Hotel was very clean and art work was awesome! Staff was friendly and helpful. Beds were very comfortable. The down side was that although there was a pool there was no area to lay in the sun. The pool is covered which is nice for rainy weather but not for sun seekers.

50 meters North of the Red Cross Santa Ana San Jose
