My wife an I stayed here in the third week of December. We came to San Jose for a friends wedding and decided to make a little vacation out of it. The hotel was priced great and looked modern and in good condition. Turns out, it is exactly what it looked like. The rooms are perfectly clean and considering the price, are in excellent condition. The staff is super friendly (Buenas!!) and will provide you with anything you need. Breakfast is not just included, it's also really good and different every day. Hang out at the hotel bar if you have a "spare" evening, you may be surprised whom you meet. We got invited to Mexico by a couple who were also staying at the hotel. It was great.
The hotel is located in walking distance to the park, national stadium and several restaurants, which are mostly good. (review first!) The concierge and cab drivers (the way to get around in San Jose) are nice and very knowledgable - Just book day trips when you get to the hotel, we went on three and they were all great.
The hotel has a small gym in the top floor, the only thing missing is a pool, but you can use the pool from an apartment complex two doors down. If you're a workaholic like me :( you'll be glad to know, that the wifi is reliable!
