My family and I stayed here for one night after we landed in San Jose. The rooms are well-sized and clean, although ours had a bit of a musty smell--- nothing terrible or overpowering to dissuade you, but it was there. The bathroom is clean, we had hot water. The restaurant is decently priced ($8 to $12 for entrees) and the food is good, but its not like you had a choice; the hotel is located in the hills 15 minutes out of the city. The employees were extremely nice and attentive. I would stay here for an in-transit between-cities stop. Otherwise, you're a bit out of San Jose to explore the capital.
Its a better-than-average hotel, but not oh-my-goodness-amazing.

We will pick you up there and show you the wonders of this exotic country. ... more less
