We had a great stay at the Isla Verde Hotel. It is just a short bus or taxi ride from the downtown area but the hotel feels like it is in a safe area and the hotel feels very safe. To get downtown you can catch a public bus that picks up right across from the hotel and only costs 300 colones to tale you downtown. The hotel staff was very nice and super helpful. They helped us a book a tour for the next day and had multiple great dinner suggestions, as well as many maps and instructions for how to see the sights we wanted to see. We stayed here both at the beginning and end of our stay in costa rica. The hotel rooms are new and nice and clean. The hotel is quite although if you stay along the main street you can hear some of the street noise. The included breakfast was also great and very satisfying.

Peaceful tranquility complemented with comfortable and clean accommodation! Sitting out on our own balcony overlooking the slopes of the Poas volcano was just heaven! :) The friendly hosts completed the perfection of this hotel - always helpful and informative, and ready to offer advice for sight seeing and exploring.
We just cannot wait to go back again!

Had a great experience. The lodge looks small from the outside but looks are deceiving. The staff was great and catered to our needs. Nice fireplace as well to sit by at night and have a glass of wine.

We spent 2 weeks in this hotel. The location of the hotel is good: a lot of restaurants and shops around. The cleanliness of the hotel is perfect, staff was friendly and helpfull, the set up and variaty of breakfast is exellent. Tv can be a little bit bigger and wifi can be stronger. We enjoyed staying there and recomend this hotel not only for weekend but for a long period.

We stayed at the Trapp Family Country Inn upon our arrival and the night before our departure from the San Jose Airport. The grounds and the Inn are beautiful. The staff was excellent and the food was very good. The breakfast which was included in our price was served on the beautiful verandah and was presented in a professional manner.
The Inn is away from the public street and surrounded by the rain forrest. It is very secure.
The bed was a little hard for my taste and the only other thing that was less than perfect was there was not a chair in the room. The TV was old but that was not important to us.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Buena Vista for 2 nights and had an excellent experience. We had originally only booked one night and planned to stay there the day before we left Costa Rica, but bad weather at another location led us to call Hotel Buena Vista the day before our stay to see if they had any availabilities for another night. They were very helpful, spoke perfect English, and booked us a beautiful balcony room that very day. The parking area felt very safe, the staff were smiling and happy to help us find activities in the area. The rooms are spacious, and it was cool enough even in July that we didn't mind there was no A/C. The first night we stayed in a room in the main hotel, and the walls are a bit thin. There was a large tour group staying at the hotel and we could hear them during dinner and whenever they entered/exited their rooms. Our second night was completely noise-free though. We upgraded to a private villa (there are 5 on property). We had a huge room with 2 beds, 2 couches, a private screened in porch overlooking San Jose. We ate dinner on property that night, huge portions and good quality. It only took us about 20 minutes to get to the airport from the hotel, but you would never know you were so close with how private the grounds feel. We will definitely stay again when we return for our next trip!

I thoroughly enjoyed my 1 night stay. Abraham at the front desk was the main reason. He was welcoming, attentive and courteous. Whenever I needed him, he was available and quick to respond. I liked the overall hotel as well nice theme and everything was clean and well maintained. I will definitely be returning on my next trip to San Jose

This hotel was great mostly for its people. The desk staff, bartenders, wait staff, cleaning staff - all nice and very helpful. I travelled with my sister and we stayed in Cala - the rooms have names instead of numbers. We had 2 comfortable beds and a nice bathroom with a shower/tub combination. We were there from 7/2 - 7/8 and slept with the window open every night and were very comfortable.
In addition, the food was excellent! Breakfast was the same everyday and very good, but the dinners the chef prepared were some of the best around! Try the Spaghetti - who would have thought an Italian dish in CR would be so remarkable?!
The staff was helpful in confirming tour pick up times for us, responding to a call when we broke a class in the bathroom - eek, and even arranged to order and pick up a cake my sister requested for my birthday. I don't recall the name of the bakery, but the cake was to die for! I'm sure if you ask, they can hook you up.
Overall, a great place to stay!
One thing of note, there is a train that passes (down the middle of the street!) about 60 feet from the hotel. it didn't bother us at all, in fact we liked hearing it. But if you're sensitive to such sounds, be aware!
