Exceptional 10.0
Just right
This place was awesome. We stayed in the end room, it had a patio that overlooked the kitchen. Loved the atmosphere and location. Breakfast was a nice bonus. Beds were a bit on the firm side and the building is older, but adequate. Loved it!

Nice Place. I would recommend.
First of all. Hotel staff is really nice. Front desk staff and the restaurant folks are great. Juan Carlos has been there a long time and very nice to talk to. He will call you to wake you up to remember breakfast. Breakfast is a nice typical Costa Rican breakfast. Juice / Coffee / Tea along with Rice and eggs. Does the trick. Room's are basic, but kept clean as you can for an older hotel. It is a smaller place and rooms are on two floors down two long hallways. So if you are sensitive to noise, make sure you have ear plugs. Pricing is very fair. I was traveling alone, but when I was there, most of the the other guests were traveling together from Europe. Great value for money. If you are not super sensitive to thin walls, all good. I would return.
