After walking nearly a mile with a 70lb piece of luggage I finally arrived at Hotel Amistad. I had been told at Hotel Morazán that they could not confirm my reservation even though I had a confirmation number from hotels.com. After I explained my dilemma Mr. Carlos at Hotel Amistad got me a room, asked me to have a beer and relax while he procured me a key. I was in my room in less than ten minutes, even before I could finish my Imperial Silver. All without any reservations. I tried to book another hotel (Morazán) to save 9 dollars a night. That wont happen again. Hotel Amistad is clean, safe and has the best food in San Jose. Thanks for being my St. Jude Carlos.
