We stayed in 2 rooms on two consecutive weekends. The family suite was less nice than the other room we stayed in. Our experience with the front desk staff was not wonderful. They were neither overly helpful nor overly polite. We left a note for the manager and did not receive a response. Other than that, it's a good place and it was quiet.

I stayed in the Cristina for several extended periods over more than three months in 2009.
I enjoyed the experience. The rooms are spacious, comfortable (if basic) and clean. The internet service was free and efficient enough for me to download and upload photographic files.
The staff wre always friendly and helpful.

I stayed at the apartotel Cristina for five nights while negotiating a purchase of a vehicle in San Jose. I had a basic room; it was clean, and quiet.. The location is convenient to both the downtown area and also the higher end shopping in Escazu (by cab).The desk staff helped me to arrange to rent a cell phone, and arranged a very helpful driver . The breakfast is excellent and the Italian restaurant on site is also excellent. Great value.

Loved the Apartotel Cristina. Very responsive staff. Nice clean rooms, with good kitchen. Pleasant pool. Good and varied breakfasts (with fresh fruit, eggs, toast, cereal, plaintains, rice and beans, yogurt), included in price. Complimentary coffee and hot tea always available near reception. Very reasonable rates. Free and fast internet. Very handy laundry room in basement--(pretty cheap--one gets the tokens at the reception). Cheerful maid service. Telephone in apartment (free local calls). It is all so convenient and pleasant, in a quiet neighborhood. Would be glad to stay here again.

Reviewed 7 January 2010

My husband and I, along with my sister and her boyfriend stayed at this place while we were in San Jose for a few days in December 2009 and January 2010. The location was a little out of the way, so it is more convenient to have a car while staying at this place. However, there was a taxi stand a couple of steps from the hotel and given the size of San Jose and the location of the points of interest, a taxi ride from Apartotel Cristina will not be exorbitant (as long as the taxi's meter is turned on). Given the unpleasantness of San Jose, we actually preferred to be a little farther from the "action" so that we could have some peace and quiet.

We had two different types of suites during our two different stays at this hotel - the first was more run down but cheaper while the second was newer and more expensive. Both times, we slept 4 adults in the suite. Both had two bedrooms, one bathroom, one kitchen, and one sitting area. The breakfast was included in the price and was a very good breakfast with a good selection of food, served by the pool every morning.

Staff were helpful and answered our questions accurately, politely, and quickly.

The only down would be that their reservation system is not the most efficient. On our second stay, we emailed them several days in advance inquiring about space. They did not get back to us, and we needed to call them on the day of our intended arrival to confirm. Otherwise, everything else was fine.

WiFi and wired internet connection included. Ample rooms with living area which is great if you are working. Breakfast is a buffet and always good and plenty of it.
I have stayed here many times when I come to San Jose on business. You will get a discount if you pay in cash.
If you have a family group there are some two and three bed roomed suites that work out really well.
