I have stayed at the Hotel La Amistad on two different occasions. My first stay was in early July 2009. My most recent stay was in September 2009.

Booked this hotel from reviews here on TA. Didn't venture past page 1. If I had, I probably would not have booked this hotel due to the countless comments about the trade going on.

Our group of four had a great time staying at La Amistad in San Jose. San Jose is a HUGE city and the hotel was centrally located, about 30 minutes from the airport. There are other restaurants in the area, but the food at the hotel was superb! They also have a free breakfast that consist of eggs, pancakes, or...
