The pool and main hotel areas are very nice, breakfast was delicious! Also although the reception isn't open 24 hours there was a security guard, so checking out at early times is not an issue. The rooms are very basic but what you would expect for the price. Everything is clean and well presented but just slightly dated.

This hotel is located in central San Jose, and not in the best part of town. The hotel sign is small and from the street side doesn't look like a hotel so it can be hard to find (across the street and just down from McDonald's). The rooms vary greatly. Some are large with kitchenettes, others are bare bones and... More

The hotel is simple and the picture is better the the hotel it self. The shower was bad. The room is old too, without air conditioning. I do not recomend. The breakfast was poor, but I think it's quite the same if you look arouns the nearby.

This hotel is very unassuming from the outside in what feels like a very touristy run down part of San Jose. Inside there is nothing to complain about, nice pool, rooms are fine, breakfast was good but didn't try the restaurant, the staff were helpful. For the same price there are some much better options further out of town.

We spent our first night in Costa Rica here. A simple, standard hotel that doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you enter feels like a little oasis in the city. The staff at the front desk were incredibly friendly and very helpful. The pool is right in the center of a lush, green courtyard. Everything was clean.... More

This hotel was quite far from downtown/central San Jose but I was only staying there for one night as I was meeting a tour group there. The room was spacious and clean and the bed was kind of hard/uncomfy. The grounds were well-kept and the pool was great for a mid-day swim. I didn't eat at the resto so not... More

Stayed one night at the beginning of a group tour. It was okay for one stay. The beds were comfortable but not a very secure room, although the front door had a security guard all night. Hot water lasted a few minutes and you could hear scratching in the ceiling. Our room was on the second floor near the street... More

Hotels location seems like a rough neighbourhood but isn't. McDonald's at the end of the street is great for morning coffee. Like others have stated walls are thin and you can hear above and outside. Motorcycles frequent the street outside and if your in a room along the street and a soft sleeper you may be bothered by it. Train... More
