Stayed at this hotel our first and last night in Costa Rica. It is as centrally located as you can get and there were no issues with feeling unsafe at any time. There is a small gated and well-guarded parking lot with the entrance at the side of the hotel. Parking is free. The hotel and rooms are very very clean and beds were comfortable, typical of a hotel geared mainly toward business travelers. Staff was helpful. Hotel restaurant - breakfast was great, soup was great, avoid the steak wrap bc the steak was cold and tasted like pickled beef jerky, unless that's something you would like.
My only warning is not about the hotel itself, but that San Jose's streets are arranged in an unusual manner. The streets are not labeled consecutively , but by even numbers, then odd numbers (10, 8, 6, 4, 2nd St. then 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11th St.). There are NO street signs, so I had to count streets while my boyfriend drove. The hotel is on Central Avenue and 7th street, and we spent half an hour zigzagging around before we were able to access it. I'm sure if we had taken a cab it would not have been an issue.
