Reviewed 11 July 2013

If you can get it on sale it is a great value. It is close to bus stations. Can be somewhat noisy during the day but quiets down at night. Is is a nice size and the welcome cocktail is a nice touch. The wifi did not work in our part of the hotel. English speaking friendly staff.

Dear guest

Thank you for your good comment. We are very happy to hear that you have appreciated to stay your last night in Costa Rica with us. Our Hotel is small enough to be able to give the best service to every one of our guests, which we love to doo.

Best regards

Jordan, Hotel-manager and his staff

The hotel is located very well, directly in the city center. The rooms are clean and relatively big, ours had a little roof-deck, too. The house is beautiful with its old charm. As said before, the staff is really kind, courteous and is able to help you with any of your problems.

On drop of bitterness: The hotel is located directly to the train station. The train everytime blows the horn for a while which can be really annoying. Nevertheless, the trains are only allowed to do this until 7 or 8 pm.

My husband and I needed a place to stay in San Jose, Costa Rica that was clean, safe, inexpensive, and also close to the heart of the city so we could walk to many things or take short cab rides. Fleur de Lys met all those qualifications, and then exceeded our expectations! The only draw back is the the occasional horn from the train. But other than that we highly recommend this hotel for a downtown San Jose stay.

I stayed at the Fleur De Lys 3 nights and then another 3 on my way out of Costa Rica. I loved this place. The rooms are all different, not hugely spacious, but enough, with closets and hangers, hot water all the time. The place is decorated Victorian style. Breakfast is included, huge buffet, traditional Costa Rican food and western, very very good. All of the staff were super friendly and helpful and many spoke decent english. The hotel is in a great location, 1 block from 2 museums, Natural history and one other, can't remember the name, but I walked from one to the next, 3 in total. It's also super close, about 6 blocks from the main shopping road, where you can find piles of shops, cafes, restaurants and a very old Theatre which offers shows and is a museum too. I would totally stay here again, they have a tour spot downstairs in the Lobby where you can organize full day or longer tours and there is a great little bar where you can enjoy a beverage or bite to eat at the end of the day. Loved it.

Nice beautiful hotel with very friendly staff! Very clean, nice rooms but a noisy train passing the hotel early in the morning. The food in the restaurant is good too!
For that affordable price the best option for a stay in San Jose!

Dear guest
Thank you for staying at our Hotel and writing a comment about this experience. We are very pleased to see that you like our Hotel even that we have this really folklorique old train passing by. I guess it has to be part of the Towns busy life!

Hope to welcome you again in our house.

Kind regards
