Nice hotel on a quiet zone.

Posted Sep 8, 2015
Pros: Quiet neighborhood, free parking inside the hotel (small but safe).
Cons: Ice availability.
Location: There's a bar/hotel around the corner. Didn't have the opportunity to check anything else.
Overall experience was good. I had 2 minor issues: 1. No ice for a late night drink 2. 1st morning i was charged $18 (for 3 people) for a breakfast that it was supposed to be included. 2nd morning i got a "ticket for a breakfast" and everything was better. Food was OK, no fancy meal, but still good. I would recommend this hotel. I would stay again on it. Nice and friendly personnel.

No AC! All lights off in hallways all the time.

Posted Jul 20, 2015
Pros: But the staff were friendly and helpful.
Cons: AC, food, lighting.
No AC, that was unexpected. we are a tall family, and the low ceiling going upstairs was strange at least plus the Lights in the hall were always off. Breakfast is beans and rice and egg if you ask for, being cooked for you, not a buffet style. We had a 9 years old child with us, restaurant if you can call it, charged us $5 for a child breakfast daily, while the room is supposed to include breackfast free with stay. Hotel room was not cleaned for 2 days, even though hotel was almost empty. We expected a little more comfort.

Great location with fantastic WiFi

The Vesuvio Hotel has a great location, at a walking distance of San Jose's major touristic attractions, it is also near convenience and drugstores. Besides that, the staff is super nice and helpful. Nice typical breakfast included and I have to remark that there is WiFi at no additional cost in every corner of this cozy hotel.

Excelente ubicación y amabilidad del personal

Posted Jan 31, 2015
Pros: El servicio y la ubicación
Cons: Las escaleras son un poco angostas.
Location: A pocos bloques se encuentra el zoológico, el Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud, el Museo del Jade y el Parque Morazan.
En general todo el personal es muy amable y siempre están a la orden para lo que se necesita. El hotel se ubica a unas calles del centro y del bulevar principal, aunque decían que caminar era peligroso, durante nuestra estancia todo fue tranquilo y la zona bastante tranquila. Algunos muebles son algo viejos pero cumplen su cometido, pues en general sólo llegabamos a dormir y bañarnos. Muy recomendable

Nice hotel in downtown

Posted Dec 14, 2014
Its a very nice hotel with very friendly staff. Would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in the nearby of downtown. Wifi worked really well and they have many tour options to volcanoes, beaches and national parks. They have a really friendly and good chef in the restaurant.

excelente ubicación

Posted Sep 25, 2014 on Hotels
Parece una gran casa con habitaciones, el personal muy amable y atento como todos los TICOS!! la ubicación excelente,caminando se encuentran todos los sitios de interés de San Jose y ESO ES MUY CÓMODO. Estuvimos 4 adultos y la habitación espaciosa y limpia pero es necesario que mejores las condiciones del mobiliario y de los pasillos la hacen ver fea!! NO tiene elevador y aunque solo planta baja y un piso como nos tocó al final de pasillo fúe incomodo porque no hay quien ayude con el equipaje.El desayuno suficiente y empieza a las 6 am ESO ES MARAVILLOSO para poder aprovechar desde temprano!!

We phoned for a shuttle pick up from the airport and was told to just get a Taxi. Cost $30.00. One of the reasons we chose this Hotel was free airport pick up. We were supposed to have a balcony which we didn't that's ok because the room was so small we never spent much time their coffee was supposed to be included but they kept running out But all in all we were off to a better place so it didn't mater.
