Isla Verde Hotel

200 Oeste de la Embajada Americana, San Jose 10109 - Map
"Pay the extra for an interior room !"
Staff is lively and helpful. Breakfast was good, too. And room eas immaculate and nicely decorated. Initial room choices were either on an air shaft or super loud with street noise. Pay the extra $10 a night for a room on the interior courtyard. Take the bus across the street into the town center. Quick, easy, fun and cheap !

Posada El Quijote

1 Km E, 25 meters S, 50 meters E, Escazu 10203 - Map
"Excellent choice for the San Jose area. "
Posada El Quijote is outstanding. The staff is friendly, attentive, and helpful, and the view of San Jose from the inn is outstanding. Bjorn and Alcides helped us book taxi rides, rent a car, find restaurants and attractions, and even upgraded our room and comped our airport transportation after a mixup with our arrival date. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the Costa Rican breakfasts will help jump start your day of exploring this beautiful country. If you're looking for an affordable and memorable place to stay in the San Jose area, I would not hesitate to recommend Posada El Quijote. They went out of their way to make us feel at home.

"A gem of a find!"
We were looking for a night to stay close to the Poas volcano and came across this place, it was literally 5 minutes away. Poas Lodge is small, but the atmosphere is excellent. The lodge is placed on the mountains and overlooks San Jose city and gives a great viewpoint. The host were excellent and very accommodating. The food was excellent and fresh as they source their ingredients locally. Would definitely stay there again.

Colours Oasis Resort

Blvd Rohrmoser, NW Corner of Triangle, San Jose 10109 - Map
"close to farmers market"
Only stayed 2 days- room was very cramped and stuffy. They were in the process of painting, doing electrical work and setting up the new bar area. The paint fumes were a bit overtaking. The lounge and patio areas were really relaxing and would provide a good visit. The staff was helpful and friendly and the food was excellent. I would stay again only for a short stay though. I enjoyed the shower but the room was too stuffy for a long stay. For the price I paid it was worth it, but if your charged over $ 50 I would prefer a different place and come there for the bar/night club only.

Trapp Family Country Inn

"Airport oasis"
My husband and I stayed here on the last night of our 2 week vacation in Costa Rica. We wanted to avoid driving into San Jose before our flight home. We arrived at the hotel early but were able to check in without a problem. The grounds of the hotel were lovely and made you feel like you were in the jungle, not right next to the airport. Although you can hear planes flying overhead as with any airport hotel. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel which was quite convenient but just okay in terms of quality. The gentleman working the front desk on the morning of our check out helped us arrange for the car rental company to come and pick up our car so we didn't have to do any stressful navigating on the day of our departure. He went above and beyond.

Hotel Buena Vista

Road 130, 9 kms north from the airport, Alajuela 4050 - Map
"Great hotel close to the airport"
This hotel has everything you could want for a comfortable and safe stay near the airport unlike the airport hotels. The time I stay at the Buena Vista is a large part of my vacation and not a place to bide my time before I start traveling around the country. The view is breathtaking, and the staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. I look forward to being in a safe, beautiful, and easy environment where everything I want and need is provided graciously when I travel and this hotel does this easily! All rooms are lovely and renovated but for luxury check out their villas which are spectacular! I would recommend this place to anyone that loves beauty, service, and serenity!
