“Convenient location and good for short stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2010

Stayed at this hotel before and after a tour of National Parks and before our final return. 2 of the rooms were dark with no outside windows, however the third was very bright and airy. There is no lift and some rooms are on upper floors. A good hotel for our stop overs.

Stayed here at beginning and end of Costa Rican trip, in different rooms both clean and comfortable. Free wireless internet & computers for guest use. Coffee available downstairs and in the room. Breakfast adequate, not exceptional, but enough to fill you up. The position is very good & although we had front rooms, we were not really disturbed by the train.

Don't expect luxury, but a good basic hotel at a reasonable price.

Stayed here first and last nights on holiday ( Costa Rica MUST be visited - best vacation destination EVER ! ) really nice old style hotel, loads of character and agree with all the positive comments from others. Spotlessly clean throughout, excellent breakfast - best we had in CR - and really excellent evening meal and very good value. The train acts a wake up call at 6.60 am !

the hotel is really ok, it's clean, very helpful people at the desk. If you consider the price of 100$ a night though, it is really a bit overpriced. As we booked it already in advance, we just picked the recommendation of our travel agent.

Excellent location only a couple of blocks from the main attractions.
The public areas of the hotel were fine but the rooms could do with updating. A tram runs nearby from 6am but I did not find this a problem. The only outside area is a small garden to the front with a few tables and chairs.
Very friendly and helpful staff, reasonably priced restaurant serving good food and free high speed internet. Good value for money given its location (about 70 GBP / 90 USD per night at time of writing). Hotel can arrange 'INTERBUS' pick up and drop off for the airport if requested. This is a lot less expensive than a taxi. Airport journey 30 minutes.

My partner and I stayed 1 night in the Jacuzzi suite on our arrival to Costa Rica and had a great time. The hotel is in a great old mansion that is literally a block from the National Museum and other San Jose attractions. The room was tastefully decorated, and felt like a great deal for the price. We arrived too late to have dinner at the restaurant, but found breakfast the next morning to be on par or slightly better than on the rest of our trip. Once we arrived, the staff were great- we got there signficantly later than we had planned, and found someone waiting for us. There was some confusion when we called earlier to confirm our reservation, but that was the sole issue we encountered. Generally speaking, San Jose has some interesting attractions but I would not want to make it the centerpiece of a trip to Costa Rica. Even you are there at the beginning or end of a vacation, or visiting on business, this hotel seems like a great option.

  • Liked — Location and the cool old house.
