I stayed at this wonderful little hotel for one night as I was traveling back to Canada. Room was very clean and convenient to get to. Staff was friendly and helpful. There is a free transfer from and to the airport that you can schedule before arrival, the driver was really nice and the vehicle was clean and spacious. The pool is one of the coldest I've ever been in, which was so refreshing after being out and about in the heat.

Room Tip: Rooms poolside can be a little noisy.

Good value for the money, a very quaint and colorful place with its festive tile/mosaic work throughout. Comfortable large room with a small lanai and kitchenette. Nice pool! Extra points for a book exchange a very friendly staff. Quite a few restaurants within walking distance. Above average breakfast with great coffee.

My latest trip to Costa Rica included was with my spouse and was for some significant dental treatment. We wanted a hotel where we could relax between dental appointments. We chose LaSabana based on a friend’s recommendation and we could not have made a better choice.

We chose the small apartment which includes a separate small kitchen with a stove, microwave, coffee maker, and refrigerator. This provided more than adequate facilities for preparing small meals. We took our complimentary breakfasts in the restaurant. Excellent juice, fruit, and 4 daily hot dishes which included pancakes, empanadas, plantains, and gallo pinto amongst others. Additionally, the two lovely women who ran the kitchen made incredible omelets for us.
Additionally, when the front desk staff realized we were getting dental work, they arranged dinners of home-made soup, yoghurt, and smoothies, delivered nightly to our room. This was also complimentary and was most appreciated by us both.

The staff was always so friendly, and so eager to address any of our needs. They are incredible. Special thanks to Alberto and the chap who was usually on the desk during the evenings. Front desk staff also speak excellent English.

Our bedroom was nicely furnished with modern furniture, a comfortable bed, and large flat screen TV. The entire apartment was kept spotless by the cleaning staff.

The pool area was kept clean with lots of towels on hand. It was great for lazing on those days when we otherwise felt too uncomfortable to take in the sites.
The room rate, taking complimentary breakfast into consideration, and the discount provided for Prisma Dental clients, was just pennies above what I have paid per person for much less comfortable accommodation in San Jose in the past.
The location is a bit of walk from downtown but very close to the major dental and medical clinics. Sabana Park is just a few yards away if you want a nice stroll.

If you want a moderately priced, extremely secure, clean, and hospitable hotel, you cannot go wrong. They also have a toll-free number from Canada and USA, which makes booking rooms very easy.

Room Tip: If you are light sleeper, take a room in the rear building, Calle 48 has some noisy traffic in the mornings.

The hotel was truly excellent. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in Apr 2014 and it had a really nice home-like feel. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. There was a good sized swimming pool, excellent breakfast, complimentary tea and coffee and in our studio, a well stocked kitchenette. Sofia, the owner, helped to make our stay really memorable. Thank you to everyone at Apartotel La Sabana. We would have no hesitation in booking to stay in this hotel again.
