Hotel Le Bergerac Boutique
Ranked #48 of 78 Hotels in San Jose
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We are staying here for 2 weeks for work. This is our second time to lodge in this hotel. We love it -- the staff is wonderful, very nice and accommodating. The restaurant -- Cyrano's -- is also quite nice and the waiter Erick is just great! He enjoys interacting w/the clients and is always in a bubbly mood. He clearly likes his work.
The hotel is located in Los Yoses, which is a nice tranquil area close to mall San Pedro and the barrio Escalante, which is replete with new restaurants catering to healthy eaters, vegetarians, and hip folks. We can easily walk to our work in Zapote and also downtown if we do not wish to ride the buses.
The hotel has different types of rooms but ours is the best: large, with a balcony and a mini-fridge. Other rooms have private gardens and other amenities. We like the balcony -- it overlooks the street and we can see what is happening outside.
All in all, a wonderful place to stay -- not fancy like the Trump Tower in Panamá but homey and comfortable. We prefer this by far!

Room Tip: Either habitación 12 or 14 -- both are good.

My son and I spent several nights at Hotel Le Bergerac. The managers (Arthur and Henry) and their staff are friendly, professional, and very helpful (for example, when we returned to the hotel after a day of white water rafting and needed medication for a sunburn, they located one of the few pharmacies that was still open in the evening, then sent us with an English-speaking cab driver who translated for us when we got there). The hotel itself is an older building with character. We stayed in a superior room with a balcony and a view across the city to the mountains, then in a deluxe room with a patio. We had a great time in Costa Rica and plan to return; when we do, we'll stay at Hotel Le Bergerac while in San Jose.

Spent a week at the hotel. The entire staff bent over backwards to help make the stay enjoyable. The hotel, so I am told, used to be a private estate until it was lost in a card game. The new owner then converted it into a hotel, hence why its location is nestled in the Los Yoses (residential) sector of San Jose instead of downtown.

Bus stops within 200 yards of the front door if you're into public transportation. They'll coordinate taxi service and have transport to/from the airport ($32.00 USD - about standard fare), and gladly coordinate export taxes (another $32) so there is no line when leaving at the airport customs.

The typical (included free) breakfast was fine to get one started: juice/coffee, fruit, toast, rice & beans, eggs. Service was excellent (Luis and Eric).

The front desk staff (Daniel, Jeramy, and Helen) - their "english" names for non-spanish speakers - were professional, courteous, and knowledgable of the city/country and handled all questions with a smile and sincerity. Fluent in English but will gladly tolerate your broken spanish if you're not a native.

Likewise, the management/office staff (Arturo and Henry) expeditiously sent e-mails to coordinate reservations and keep the information flow concise. My wife especially appreciated their efforts.
Even the room maid and gardener had a smile and morning greeting each day.

Couldn't ask for a more considerate staff.

The rooms were clean, and refreshed daily. Not 5 star downtown New York style but not the $400 price tag either. Nice for what you pay for in a city. Only a 60 cent bus ride to downtown (8-10 blocks/ about 3/4 mile). Cabs were easy to get but like in most cities, they'll route you the long way to your destination if you don't call them on their fare-bumping. Street names/numbers only exist at major intersections/roads and not in the residential areas so be forewarned!

Would recommend staying there and if/when I return would book the hotel again.

Le agradecemous que me ayuden ! (Hope that's right Jeramy)
Thanks,
Jeff Main

Le Bergerac is located in a very nice, accessible area. Interesting places a re near by, so my taxis were affordable. Breakfast was included, abundant, and consisted of tropical fruits, juice, coffee, bread, jelly, eggs, gallo pinto, fried plantain, and cheese (delicious). My room was very clean, nice, had a balcony and a small garden with a table and chairs.

Room Tip: Get a room upstairs.

Cost: About $160 a night or so

Staff: Extremely friendly and courteous; top notch

Room:
-two queen beds; very spacious, beautiful, waxed hardwood; spacious bathroom and shower

Breakfast:
-hot breakfast included-not buffet style, but served by your waiter (fresh juice, toast, fruit, tea/coffee, scrambled eggs, two small fried plantains, and gallo pinto-which is a typical costa rican rice/black bean mix)
-good quality, excellent service

Location:
-short cab ride (about 4-5 dollars) from the city center where you can find the cathedral, museums, outdoor gathering areas, fast food, etc.

Cons:
-you cannot dispose of toilet paper in the toilet - we got around this by being extremely sparing with our toilet paper usage
-no air conditioning (can get a bit warm during the day, but we were usually only in the room at night and it was very cool)

Overall, this was a great little place, and if you can deal with the cons listed above, I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 5. It was really nice.

Quiet, more up-scale location but close enough to walk to museums, large mall and parks. Our room was in the newer section of the hotel - spacious, clean and with a small garden sitting area outside. Meals were good (breakfast, lunch and dinner available) - but menu does not vary. There is a nice area to sit outside during your meal - which we enjoyed. Staff were very attentive and always available. Bed was very comfortable - I would recommend staying as your base location if visiting San Jose.

Our stay at hotel le Bergerac was awesome. We were treated so kindly by all the staff on all our comings and goings and so helpful with activities and site seeing keeping very busy. Felt very safe at hotel nestled one block from the busy main avenue. Would totally stay there again. About half hour taxi ride from airport and an easy walk to museums, the mall and groceries. Loved our stay!
