"Excellent ambiance in the heart of the city"
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!

El Rodeo Estancia Boutique Hotel & Steakhouse

"Convenient-Wheelchair Accessible-Reasonable Price"
We live in Costa Rica and El Rodeo is one of our favourite San Jose hotels. It's very convenient to the Juan Santamaria International Airport and is much more reasonably priced than the "big name" chain hotels which may be a bit closer. The adjoining steakhouse offers a large menu with the sides served family style -- you won't go away hungry! The grounds are well kept and the rooms have huge bathrooms and are nicely decorated with very comfy beds, coffee makers, fridges and A/C. A hot breakfast is included in the price and the free Wi-Fi actually works which is more than a lot of San Jose Hotels can claim. The staff is very helpful and most speak excellent English. Everything is accessible by ramps, unlike most hotels here which have steps everywhere. Highly recommended!

"La Giocanda...delightful, sincere, helpful hosts"
San Jose itself is vastly less charming than we expected...it's as ugly as the rest of Costa Rica is beautiful. But La Giocanda was a great find, and I'm grateful to the other reviewers for pointing us in the right direction. Antonella and Enzo (Italy) with help from Debbie (Brooklyn) have created a home away from home for three days of museum and symphony trips, all within a few blocks. They are fantastic hosts, great cooks, and Debbie may be the best massage therapist I've ever had. Berta the cat and Shila the dog are adorable. Antonella helped us rent a car, saving us hundreds. We kept their business card, knowing we could call them from anywhere for help. On our way home we plan to stay again.

"Close to airport. Convenient, family run"
Very nice hotel that is close to the airport. I was picked up in a reasonable time at the airport rental car agency. I arrived after lunch and was guided to a local place that was quite adequate for a snack before dinner. The room was nice, affordable, and clean. Nice pool and restaurant, bar. I was up early the next day for a flight and transported in plenty of time for flight with a nice take out breakfast that I ate on the way. A very nice touch! I had a good dinner there and met other guests and shared stories and experiences. Fun. It was recommended by a neighbor in Costa Rica.

Hotel Don Carlos

"Don Carlos - a unique spot in San Jose"
We stayed for two nights at Don Carlos. The staff was outstanding in their assistance, and English was spoken at the desk. The Hotel itself is like an art museum, and the Gift Shop at Don Carlos had a wide array of beautiful souvenirs - woodwork, art and jewelery. A welcome cocktail, buffet breakfast and 3 minute call to our country of origin and calls to anywhere in Costa Rica were included. I would recommend this hotel for the comfortable atmosphere and charm, cordiality and convenience. It is not a new hotel but that is part of its charm. It is central enough that travel including walking to attractions is convenient.

"Great Location, Great Staff, and Kids loved pools."
Kids loved the pool and slide, great location, walked the park blocks to National Museum, Kids Museum, and the Central Market. Was impressed with San Jose, very busy, hard to drive, parking nightmare, but once I figured out that one side of city was evens the other odds, found the hotel easily and had free parking, instead of over $20 for 24 hours in neighboring lot. Owner was really nice, full of information, breakfast was lovely, great hot sauce, and we loved the rooftop terrraces and old historic feel of the rooms. They even bumped us into a bigger room for the kids. Sure, there could be a bug or two, but this is the tropics, and the rooms and grounds were clean and tidy. I would highly recommend this hotel for people with kids, my 7 and 11-year old boys loved it, and the exercise rooms is pretty good place to watch world cup too!
