High quality linens, awesome mattress, pillows and filtered water in the rooms are all little things that are appreciated and add up. Wifi was good in our room and the staff is wow!!! I want to bring Alfredo home with me!! He obviously loves his job and...

Our first night was spent here before we started our self drive tour. It is very well located and we had a comfortable, spacious room. Breakfast was fine- standard costa rican hot and cold buffet. As others have mentioned the train is very noisy but must stop honking late night to early morning, as we did manage a reasonable night...

Dear Guest Thank you for this comment and for choosing our hotel as your first stay in Costa Rica. We only use home-made fresh ingredients to make the best breakfast in the area. Luckily as you mentioned the city train works only during the day, so guest can have a good night rest and doesn’t pass during the weekends. We...

This hotel is very cute. Close to all the transportation, bars and restaurants. Walking distance. Rooms are spacious. It's a big mention converted to a hotel. Staff is very helpful. Walk to downtown as well.

Great little hotel in the heart of San Jose Theater district. Walking distance to Jade museum,National Theater, National Museum, Market and more. Hotel room was plain but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was tasty and so was the food at the restaurant. Would definitely go there again. We stayed one week with rental car. Driving was crazy and traffic in and...

We stayed at Hotel Fleur de Lys for one night prior to departing for home after several days in Costa Rica. While a little worn around the edges, the hotel is full of charm and character. Our room was clean & comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was good. The staff was friendly and accommodating, especially the front desk manager, who...

Thank you for a wonderful stay. Your hotel was beautifully done, the food was delicious and the downtown location could not have been easier/closer to major attractions and shopping. The staff was available, courteous, helpful and the atmosphere was so welcoming. A word to the sensitive traveler - bring earplugs for the train that runs at night. It definitely woke...

This hotel is pretty good value. The location is very central and makes for an ideal base to explore the centre of San José (don´t plan to spend more than half a day in San José). There is a very nice terrace in front of the property for a cocktail and good restaurants nearby. The room was a bit dated,...
