This hotel is pretty convenient. The staff is friendly and the relation price-service-room is good. Don't expect a swimming pool or a gym but it is close to a supermarket and good restaurants. Also, it has a private parking area within the location.

I had many great conversations with Roberto, who has the most English there. The included breakfast was very nice and the maids were great. When your in the hotel, you almost...

I have been staying at the Tairona under the current management since they took over quite a few years ago and have never been disappointed. I stay there several times a year, sometimes for two months at a time. It is a charming small hotel with an excellent caring management and staff. They do everything to make guests as comfortable...

The place is clean, and the staff are super nice and helpful. Very close to restaurants, the University of Costa Rica, and plenty of public transportation options to get to other parts of San Jose. Very recommended! The breakfast is simple but great to start the day.

They have a loud train passing side by side the apartahotel, and they didn't tell you about that. The train passes from 5:30 am to 10:00PM almost every minute, with a loudly horn. The hotel smells like dust.

I highly recommend Tairona if you are coming to San Jose. It is family owned, the staff is very friendly, the breakfast is good, there is easy transportation downtown, every room has a nice kitchen, and there's free wifi. The laundry is also convenient if you are staying a while. The only reason I gave this 4 overall is because...

This hotel is an excellent choice for San Jose lodging. It is modern, clean and pleasant and the staff is warm and helpful. The only negative I would offer is that the breakfast offered is only toast and coffee, so if you're looking for anything better, you have to leave the hotel. The location is great.....5 minutes from the San...
