We loved every part of our trip to Costa Rica. Every place we stayed and every person we met was genuinely happy and friendly...Except Hotel Louisiana. Very strange and unfriendly vibe immediately upon arrival. Luckily we only were there for a night with early departure the next day. We left the premises as soon as possible to eat and relax...

I stayed for one night after getting into the airport very late. My ride was waiting for me which was very comforting especially traveling alone in the middle of the night. The check in was quick easy and friendly, and yes, you'll need $100 deposit. Breakfast was fresh and delicious!

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The biggest drawback was NO ICE MACHINE!! Further, each day when I asked for ice at the desk, I was given a half filled small baggie and told that was all they could spare. I found that quite annoying. Also the shower temperature fluctuated from hot to cold. Overall the staff was friendly and...

You can get good deals on the internet for this hotel (and this is a major plus), but would recommend including breakfast in the room fee if considering eating there in the morning since ordering from the menu is expensive for what you get. Personally we didn't like the atmosphere it service, but everyone has their own taste.

My recommendation to anyone considering staying in Hotel Luisiana – STAY AWAY! And here’s why. We (my wife, myself, our daughter and her family) liked the location, the spacious rooms, the just-fast-enough Wi-Fi, so this last stay was our third. We did have some doubts about staying there after the bad taste in our mouths left after the second visit...

After a long day of travel, it was nice to arrive at a hotel that offered a friendly welcome. We enjoyed breakfast and loved the coffee any time of the day. Our group was arriving at many different times and the front desk was very helpful storing bags and letting us know how to find each other.

The hotel property was very average, don't expect anything fancy. The room was spacious, but had an unusual smell. The beds were too soft for us. There were no flat sheets on the beds. The bathroom is very basic, hotel provided hairdryer. Mini frig offered 2 beers, 2 waters and 2 cokes, (for a charge) and that was it. Pool...

Do not pre-pay for room, dinner, breakfast on their "plan". Only 3 cheap pasta options for choices. Wanted to pay difference and order grilled salmon "NO, not on plan!" Asked for water: NO, not on plan!" Asked for credit for breakfast, as charter flight would be very early: "No credit, as prepaid online."

Clean, spartan room, friendly staff person. Extremely limited choices on dinner meal plan which included only coke and coffee beverages, no reimbursement for missed breakfast due to early airport shuttle. Overall not a pleasant welcome to Costa Rica.

Beautiful building- very European looking, nice/safe area. The room was very clean and open (not cluttered like many hotel rooms). The dinner was truely amazing- we had the pumpkin ravioli- kudos to the chef! We only stayed for one night, but this will certainly be our go-to hotel in San Jose on future trips to Costa Rica!
