This beautiful Victorian building has such old worldly charm but with all modern amenities required for the perfect stay.
It is set a short walk away from the bustling centre of San Jose on a quiet side street. Check in was efficient and quick although as with all Costa Rican hotels we visited you are given a welcome drink while standing filling out paperwork the minute you arrive. Not at all relaxing especially after 18 hours in transit.
We had room 17 which was lovely and had everything required for our two night stay. It was very private and hidden by lush planting in the courtyard. Toiletries were generic but ok, bed was lovely with comfy pillows. Widescreen tv if you need it, two ceiling fans, quiet air con and opening windows so plenty of ways to adjust the temperature.
The hotel is quirky with small courtyards and internal gardens, a small sun terrace with tropical planting and two small jacuzzis. You can eat inside or out in the beautiful central courtyard. Dinner was superb as was the good choice of al a carte breakfast. Again like most hotels here food is very expensive but at least here it was superb. The staff are very formal but very efficient.
If you come to San Jose this hotel is a must on all fronts.
