The hotel staff is very kind and they are very competitive as well as well educated. The rooms are nice except rooms 518 and 521 which I stayed. They look as old as the building is. Even knowing that the hotel is a tradition hotel in San José, the rooms should have newer furniture.
In room 518 the chair to seat is broken because being extremely old. Toilet is more than 20 years old. In the other rooms is fine. Just make sure the rooms with balcony, the glasses should be noise proof cause at night there is too much noise downstaris.
