Good breakfast starting at 6:00
Good breakfast starting at 6:00 Emailed hotel regarding Airport bus and a prompt reply from Marcela Redondo Diaz. Advised changing only small amount at Airport. Subsequently changed more at Hotel at almost the same rate as a Bank. Pleasant staff and good location. Enjoyed our brief visit from Canada .

Nice place
We only stayed here one night but the hotel was very nice and the people very nice. The taxi ride arranged by them was a tad expensive but overall great experience

Good choice for downtown San Jose
Huge rooms, very helpful staff. In the heart of San Jose. Minor complaints: thin towels, no kleenex, minimal English on TV.
David, ca2 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Good location, nice room - lovely end to our hols
Good location with main attractions walkable. Also 15 min walk from the bus station for the bus that goes to Manuel Antonio, and 15 mins in the other direction for the bus to the airport (which costs $US1 vs the $US35 the hotel charges for a shuttle). Has a roof top bar but there's not a lot of outside tables, so get there for its 4pm opening if it's a nice day and you want to sit outside. Breakfast was a buffet of local fare plus cereal and omelet bar and great coffee (just like the rest of Costa Rica!).
Adelle, ca2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Boring boutique hotel.
Beautiful lobby but the suite was completely boring. No details. Needs more charm for an expensive boutique hotel.

Convenient location. Great breakfast and rooftop bar.

Very Good 8.0
Very nice respite from the city
The entrance, lobby area, and breakfast room are very welcoming here. They definitely reinforce the fact that you're staying at a classy place in this crazy, vibrant city. The guest room itself though was very drab and bare basic. Very clean, but perhaps missing details like pictures on the wall or other details that could make the room somewhere you would want to spend time in. I thought the bedding was also fairly scratchy and not of a high level of quality. The staff were excellent here though with an early checkin, directions, storage of bags, etc. The breakfast was also excellent with many choices available. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay.

Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, and breakfast was fantastic! I felt this hotel was very affordable for the location and amenities. If I make it back to San Jose, I would only stay here.
