Great hotel
Great hotel location service friendly staff quiet only the internet was a little slow at times for Netflix but each time I come to San José I am staying there.

Helpful staff
Hotel and room clean and tidy. Scrambled eggs bacon, rice and beans Breakfast was available from 7am. Excellent location to access town centre. Reception staff very helpful in arranging tours and assisting with any issues. They also arranged to have a filled roll ready for an early departure before the kitchen was open, which was highly appreciated. Street outside our unit was busy and a bit of traffic noise was intrusive.

Nice rooms with ideal location
This little hotel is an ideal stay if you have business to do in the center. The location is perfect although on weekends there is a disco across from the hotel and you need earplugs. But the windows are super thick and the hotel provides really goid earplugs. The free breakfast is wonderful and the rooms are great. Just make sure they don't give you a room with no windows.

very acceptable - simple breakfast was good.
Located downtown , walking distance from most of the out of town busses. Mcdonalds nearby and local eats also- 10 mins or so from center of town. Interior rooms with no windows were quiet- air con worked to keep air moving and tv had some english stations. Great houskeeping lady found my charger cord before we left- big thank you!!!!

Good for the price
Got into the room at 2am via taxi and everything was smooth. The rooms could use some updating but it was very clean and great location to the bus station and to walk around. The front desk was very nice! Our room had no window so it was pretty quite. Good wifi in the room.

Stayed one night. Aging hotel. The room was windowless and the furnishings were somewhat dirty. I had to start for the airport the next morning and around 7a asked about getting a bite of breakfast early. They would not even give me coffee. All in all, one can find much better places in the area.
