            Hotel is an oasis in a city of chaos. Great as a base if you need to overnight in San Jose but I wouldn't be staying in this city for too long.

          • Single
            7.4

            The check-in at 3 p.m.

            Staff are friendly. Wonderful location. Good value. I see it is listed as 3 stars, and that is conservative. I would rate it higher. It is a noisy, busy city and the hotel is a welcome relief from that.

            Breakfast buffet...always the same, and by 9am, they tend to be out of things and in no hurry to refill. Day 2 the maid removed the bathrobe from my room, and it took 3 days and 3 requests to get it replaced.Internet was out a few times, and staff were very matter of fact about this.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            - Comfortable bed & pillows - good room size - friendly staff - good location

            - Expensive water from mini bar ($6.50 for 500ml of Fiji)

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            - Free Internet - Restaurant with views over the city - Hotel in the City
