The hotel is located in a suburb of San Jose and is not far away from the airport. As such, it mainly caters for visitors on their first or last day of their trip to Costa Rica. It is a very decent choice considering the following: - San Jose main city does not seem to offer similar options - Santa...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 January 2017

If you are planning a visit to Costa Rica, I would strongly recommend the Holiday Inn Express Forum at Santa Ana. There are several reasons; first and foremost, the staff there are real friendly and very personal. Dixiana and Priscilla at front desk are extremely cooperative and making sure that you are comfortable. Second, the other staff are wonderful too...

This hotel is convenient for the airport and has places to eat nearby (catering for tourists rather than locals, so expect high prices). Rooms are clean and comfortable and breakfast is buffet style and typically Costa Rican.

An adequate hotel for a short stay. Rooms are spacious and clean but breakfast choices are somewhat limited. There are several good restaurants within a couple of minutes walk and some shops, including two supermarkets, within five minutes walk. Otherwise nothing to attract tourists to the location.

The Holiday Inn Express Santa Ana is just what you'd expect from the brand. The staff are friendly & helpful and the property is well maintained, very clean and pleasant throughout. For the price it probably can't be beaten! Location is good, being close to a number of shops / restaurant, although I'm not sure there's anything touristy nearby (I...

Overall I think you could do a lot worse, but frankly I wish we had stayed elsewhere. THE LOCATION If you have business or some other reason to be nearby, then the location is actually quite nice. There are a lot of nice restaurants within a very short walking distance. There is a very nice little grocery right across the...

We stayed at this hotel for one night between transfers. It is OK. Breakfast is included which had both hot and cold items available. There is a pool. Across the street is a market to buy groceries and a few strip malls with a variety of restaurants (the Indian restaurant is very good). The hallways can be noisy - if...

If you are traveling to Costa Rica to see its countryside and don't want to pay higher prices or stay right downtown, consider traveling outside to this suburban location. The breakfast that is included is generous and delicious, a fine introduction to food in a country whose best attributes do not include food. This Holiday Inn has a small gym,...
