Cozy, comfortable, friendly B&B centrally located
We, a family of three, very much enjoyed our short stay at Hotel Kekoldi and wished we could have stayed longer. Kekoldi is a small boutique hotel with very friendly, welcoming and helpful hosts and service. Our room (#1) was pretty basic (BYO bathroom amenities) but very spacious and clean, which was all we needed. When I was able to catch a peak in room #2 though, I saw that that one has very lovely design/stucco. Although it is very centrally located in inner San Jose, close to major bus terminals (e.g. Gran Caribe Terminal for going to Tortuguero is in walking distance), museums and parks, it is nice and quiet. It has a cute courtyard and garden, and an artsy breakfast nook, where we enjoyed a very yummy complimentary breakfast with made to order eggs, homemade jam and toast, fresh fruits, fruit juice, cereals, coffee/tea. Some people remarked they had a hard time finding it...yes, at night the hotel sign is hard to see (half-covered by a plant), but google maps has no problem to lead you to the address. Then it's up a staircase to ring the night bell at the wrought-iron gate, which is locked at night - as it should be in any major city center. When we rang the bell, someone immediately came to let us in and welcome us. There is a great selection of restaurants in walking distance (such as Cafe Mundo and Cafe Rojo), and we felt safe enough in the area to walk back from a restaurant at 10 pm. Absolutely great value for money!

Good Hotel, Great Value.
This hotel was well worth the expense. The room was large and the breakfast good. The location was also good. I would stay there again and may do so when I return to San Jose later in July.
