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

The staff were extremely helpful and the hotel was very nice and in a great location. I'd stay again for sure.

Very Good 8.0
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, caRomance 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!).

Worth a visit
Great central local. The building is very unique with exposed brick and beams. Has a rooftop patio and bar that is excellent. I highly recommend this location when visiting San Jose
