We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica. I must say we were a little disappointed. We had read such good things about this hotel. We stayed in a very small and cramped room with one tiny window near the ceiling that looked out into the restaurant. It was very dark with terrible lighting. It smelled a little damp. There are hardly any windows in the hotel or restaurant. We didn't want to go out in the dark around San Jose, but were weren't thrilled with sitting in our dark room all night. There was no temperature adjustments in the room, so it was hot. The breakfast that was included was very basic. It was clean and sufficient, but there are probably better options out there for $80 per night.
On the good side, the staff was all very friendly and helpful, and the guard at the front definitely made us feel safe in what seemed to be a little bit of a sketchy part of town.
