    Downtown Oasis
    Hotel Santo Tomas is a character hotel in downtown San Jose, close to everything. Rooms were large and well decorated. Staff were most accommodating. The front desk saved me a trip to the airport to drop off my rental car early but having the rental people come pick up the car at the hotel.

    Exceptional 10.0
    My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Santo Tomas. Our room was quiet and very clean. Thomas the owner was very welcoming and helped us sort out our travel arrangements around Costa Rica. The hotel is near a bit of a dodgy area but very central to many sights of San Jose. We had no problems walking around the area during the day. We would definitely stay here again.
