My wife and I stayed in Room 102 of Suites Cristina during a recent visit to San Jose. The suite was roomy, very clean, with ample closet space. Breakfast by the pool was good - and filling. By the way, the restaurant attached to the hotel, L Olivo, while a bit pricy is as good of an Italian restaurant as I've found outside of Rome!
Now, the downside - the rooms have very little carpet, making them "hard" - noise carries. This would not have been as much of an issue, except Room 102 faces the street and is over the garage entryway. There was quite a bit f noise in the early morning that prevented us from sleeping with the windows open. The other "downside" was the mattress was more firm than my wife and I prefer - combined with the noise, couldn't quite get comfortable.
The staff of Suites Cristina were always very pleasant and helpful. Location was convenient to several places to eat and to Sabana Park.
Had our stay been longer, I would have requested a move to a different room to get away from the noise from the street and employees of ICE (coming to work at 630AM). The noise (something management had little control over) was the biggest drawback, and I don;t think other rooms not facing the street would have had the same issue.
For the price, you get a very clean room, with ample storage, good Internet connections, ample space (bathroom, bedroom, and sitting area/kitchen). and a hearty breakfast (omelets, fruit, juices, coffee, toast, and a few sides) to get you started of a morning.
