I'm not sure what my expectations should be for San Jose. The staff could have been nicer. Just did not care. I waited to check in for 40 minutes behind a needy customer and the woman was rude to me and did not ask for back up. The bellman saw us waiting so long he came over and we told him we could see people in the back watching us wait and not helping us. So he went and got another front desk person to help us. Again I don't know what the options are in San Jose but I would never stay there again. Our boutique that we booked outside of this tour was amazing I would do that again. Very rustic but so Costa Rica and literally steps from a Saturday farmers market.

The hotel is centrally located and within an easy walk to most attractions. The hotel itself is a bit tired, but comfortable and quiet. Breakfasts were plentiful and of good quality.

Staff in the breakfast area were all very helpful from phoning back to our room to food selections.

02/09/2018

Hotel is in a good location to shops and museums.

02/02/2018

it was fine - we were only there for a few hours, most of them sleeping, didn't really get too much of a feel for the place & location

01/26/2018

Room could of been better, not the cleanest, would of asked for another room, but it was only one night.

Many large groups so elevator service was chaotic at times and breakfast was crowded. Breakfast staff did an excellent job keeping the flow going. Good location.

06/24/2017

the hotel's location was very good, it's in the center of town so very convenient, but the hotel was very crowded, the lobby was full of people all the time, staff looked overwhelmed

05/19/2017

we didn't have much time here to experience the hotel or surrounding area but from what we saw we were pleased.

02/25/2017

The staff was great! They were very helpful with suggestions of places to visit and restaurants, as well as directions.

Grateful there was front desk staff that spoke english

Place was decent for a nights stay. Breakfast was horrible

07/02/2016

as we arrived early the hotel service accommodated us with a room. Since we had been in route to Costa Rica and in airports for about 12 hours we were hungry. So I asked it we could get breakfast, staff said NO, Giving that the next day we had an early tour and missed breakfast, i think it should have been given an arriving breakfast. Make our stay a bit more personal. The staff could have looked into our activities for the next few days. Since we actually pay for a breakfast at the hotel and we didnt get it..No big deal now, at the time would have been a great convenience for us.

Really classy hotel with a beautiful view

05/01/2015

Staff was 100% helpful.

01/15/2015

The location was just what we had hoped for, so we would probably go again unless you could offer a similar location in a hotel with more 'heart.' The desk staff was not overly helpful and one woman was actually rude. No water was offered as an amenity and we actually had to pay for it - the only time in a Costa Rican hotel. The waiter in the restaurant and those in the breakfast room were efficient and friendly. It felt like being in the USA rather than in Costa Rica - a bit hard and less friendly than what we encountered during the rest of our trip.
