I think that readers should know what to expect when one visits San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica and if one chooses by chance to stay at the hotel Casa Colon. I wrote a review for a famous hotel website and they just prints the first sentence!
Firstly San Jose is a dump! There is no reason to visit this city if not necessary. The airport is if e and just on transit is no problem. But there is really nothing to do and nada to see.
Iris expensive and the value for money is miserable!
The hotel is pretty looking, well situated in the middle of the city, and the staff is fire day, but that's it!
The management is very stingy with 1.towels - u get one towel per person from the front desk ( after paying about. $80 a night! 2. There is no light - everything is dimmed!3. "Breakfast is included" what a joke. Firstly I must go to the kitchen to get coffee - had to bring my own Tea bags as they had none plus no milk. Has anyone Ed
Ver seen a hotel with no milk?and for this price?
They write that if u are 5 minutes late with the check out u must pay $5 for each 15 minutes or so.
Stingy management! Hope no one will come to your hotel!
