“Beautiful place to stay for a great price!”
Reviewed 1 January 2008

We visited Costa Rica in December 2007 and stayed at Hotel La Rosa de America for a total of four nights. This "gem" of a hotel is Located only 7kms from the San Jose airport. Not only is it a great place to stay the day of arrival and the night prior to departure, but you can use it as a "base" during your adventures in the Central Valley. The grounds are beautifully keep, with a very inviting swimming pool. Every morning we were treated to a very large tropical breakfast, which gave you the energy needed for your daily travels. The owner Robert was always very eager to assist in your travel plans and organize tours or a rental car. Of all the hotels that we stayed at while in Costa Rica, we felt the most comfortable at Hotel la Rosa de America. Great value!

Reviewed 10 January 2007

This is a great, affordable hotel, near the airport, in a nice neighborhood. There are many places to eat nearby, and we felt we were in the "real" Costa Rica, not a touristy area.

Our six-year old loved the nice swimming pool and the fresh fruit breakfasts. Hosts Jim and Roslyn are extremely helpful and nice people. Jim will create a map for you for anywhere you want to go in the Central Valley, which we really appreciated. Jim gave us maps to Poas Volcano, La Paz waterfall gardens, and Cafe Britt in Heredia -- we really enjoyed all three attractions.

Two thumbs up for Hotel La Rosa de America.
