We stay 2 nights in this hotel, my husband, my daughter of 8 years and me. First thing we have to ask to change the room when we arrive because of the ugly smell of cigar of the first room. Then they give us another room that has that kind of door inside and you can open and share with...

I have stayed in San Jose several times before I usually stay at Hotel Presidente' but decided to try something new. Well I was impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and the Sleep Inn rooms were much more updated than the other hotel rooms in the vicinity. The staff was friendly especially the 2 gentlemen working the front desk....

We stayed here at the beginning of our Costa Rican tour. Since our organized tour didn't include San Jose, we arrived a few days early so we could explore San Jose on our own. This hotel is within walking distance to most of the major attractions such as the National Theatre, Gold Museum, Jade Museum, National Museum, Central Market, and...

I stayed here two separate nights and am very happy. BUT, for the free shuttle, call in advance!!! I had to pay $28 for a taxi because I didn't know (and the website isn't clear on this) you had to pre-register. Almost made my rating as average because of this.

We stayed in a total for 2 nights. The property is very clean and close to downtown. There is a casino and restaurant on site. Costa Rica national museum is only 4 blocks from this property. Beds are a little hard but over all a very nice place.

I stayed here with my boyfriend on the last night of our Costa Rican vacation. I chose this hotel for the location downtown and the free airport shuttle. The hotel is very secure and gated, located within walking distance to lots of touristy sight-seeing and great restaurants/bars. We were just advised not to walk about at night after 9:30pm. The...
