Hotel la Posada del Sol
Ranked #28 of 67 San Jose B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Given the price of this hotel, it's not such a bad deal overall. The staff were mixed but the breakfast was tasty. Having said this, the room we stayed in wasn't the nicest and didn't seem to reflect the photos online.

In terms of location, we struggled to find any reasonably priced restaurants nearby which left us wandering uncomfortably at night; however, there seemed to be more options during the day.

Unfortunately we were awoken by the sound of a cat jumping around on the roof which was rather disturbing until we figured out what it was!

Also, the bedroom had an unusual layout with a toilet behind a magnetic door on one side of the room and a shower on the other side which made it seem less like a hotel and more like a prison cell...

Nonetheless, you get what you pay for and overall it could have been a lot worse!

Stayed: September 2013, travelled as a couple

Pros: This hotel is located right in the center of San Jose. The rooms have television. The breakfast is very good. Good room for the price. There are some pretty good restaurants nearby.

Cons: It's about a $20-$30 taxi from the airport. Restaurants in the vicinity close early.

Hotel Posada del Sol was fantastic for our quick two night stay in San Jose. The staff were extremely friendly, sweet and attentive.
It's really clean, cosy and has a deliciously filling breakfast!
There is a nice outdoor patio in the backyard and the place has free wifi. In addition, it's safe and secure. We stayed in a private double and would definitely reccommend this place to anyone passing through San Jose.

First of all the Roms are really beautiful. The Hotel consists of 5 double rooms, which have a big comfortable bed and at least 2 fans. The bathroom was very clean and the whole interior was setup with a special look for the details.

There was a safe in the room and in Front of each room you can enjoy a nap in the comfortable hammock. The whole Areal was very quiet and you were awaken by the birds in the trees.

Laetitia the owner was one of the nicest persons we met in Costa Rica and assisted very kindly in all of our questions.
