Close to US embassy

Very secure hotel but other facilities not walkable. Lobby and parking behind barred fences. Nice staff, good clean rooms and very nice breakfast. Quick elevator serviced the 4 floors. They called us a taxi and made sure driver took best route to our destination. Good stay. Could have used better map to find place. A local citizen had to call hotel for directions and followed him to hotel.

Location was not good to far away from everything

Mattress and pillows so uncomfortable location was not good to far away from beach and national parks

We're a city hotel where we don't promote beaches or national parks as close attractions to our establishment. It usually takes about an hour to get to the closest beach and national parks such as Irazú Volcano, Jacó Beach and Poas Volcano.

Pros: Staff was always ready to serve us. Breakfast was good.

Overnight in San Jose

Posted Feb 15, 2016 on Hotels
We stayed because of a layover between flights . The drive time from San Jose airport was about 20 minutes . There is no open restaurant on the property but there are some close by . The room was large and clean . The king size bed was comfortable and had a good selection of pillows . We had breakfast included which was simple but adequate . A good , cheap alternative for an overnight stay .
