“Great Little Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2013

This is a great little hotel, right in the Centre of San Jose, within walking distance of the centre. I had a great time wondering around and visiting the sites, and getting a feel for the city. Away from the heavy traffic, which pollutes the atmosphere, this was the perfect place to stay. The hotel has a colonial feel to it, with friendly staff. I would come back again. Sandra Packham UK

Room Tip: Perfectly located for visiting this city.

This is a great little hotel-even if it is pink. It is right downtown in a run down area but the hotel is wonderful. It is an old house that has been converted.The rooms are large and very funky. It is clean.The staff are very courteous and they were happy to answer all our questions. Breakfast was great and there was lots of it.
If you want to stay in a hotel like a Hilton-dont stay here. If you like different and unusual-this is the place.

I stayed here with 2 friends in Daisy room. We stayed at the beginning and end of our holiday in Costa Rica arriving from into and leaving San Jose.
It's convenient location - only 20 minutes to the airport but close enough to walk to the shops and check out Mercado Central for souveniers.
All the staff are very friendly and helpful.
The room was clean and there was a fan above the bed to keep us cool.
I'm not sure if the room we were in was above the restaurant area but there is a lot of noise so I would recommend taking ear plugs if you are a light sleeper - plus, since this hotel is a stop over for other guests, you will be able to hear alot of banging around when guests have early departures and drop offs.
Hotel was thoughtful enough to provide us breakfast boxes for our early departures.

The building is really nice and it is really conveniently located, just two minutes walk to the National museum and only 5 mins to the main pedestrianised downtown area. The rooms were a bit small and there were no outside windows so a bit stuffy.
Breakfast was a buffet and very good.
They had a nice sounding dinner menu, but when we went down the restaurant was shut and we could only choose from a limited bar menu.
Staff were friendly and they give you a free welcome cocktail.

My family of four was greeted warmly and enjoyed a comfortable night sleep upon arriving in San Jose after a long journey. The hotel's ambiance is quite relaxing with beautiful interior wood, open atriums with natural light filtering in, a soothing water fountain, and gorgeous paintings throughout. The breakfast was delicious and offered an abundant selection - they even provided a highchair for our infant. I would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in San Jose. Thank you very much to the staff at the Hotel Fleur de Lys.

This hotel has old world charm and a great staff who were helpful and friendly. Our room was very comfortable with two large beds, large windows and a spacious bathroom. We had dinner there upon our arrival and it was delicious with an extensive menu and relaxed setting. Breakfast was buffet style and though the choices were plentiful, the staff made my husband fried eggs instead of the scrambled ones in the buffet. There's also a bar and outdoor seating which though small is quite pleasant. There is a large room with two computers for internet access which was much appreciated. This hotel is easy walking distance to many attractions and a wonderful Argentinian restaurant, La Esquina de Buenos Aires, around the corner. We will definitely be back next time we are in San Jose!

We loved it. The hotel is a cute place~ an old mansion turned into a hotel. We also got great service. Our room was upgraded when we arrived and the guy at the front desk helped us get a bus ticket for traveling the next day. We slept well there, also! The bed was comfortable and breakfast was very good. I recommend the place if youre traveling through San Jose
