HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

I have been staying here sporadically since 2012 for work. So this review is based on multiple visits plus my current experience checking in today. Location - great location that is close to the airport and my employers office. Retail and dining is easily reached by walking. Building- its a bit dated but the price makes up for that. Typically...

I really like this hotel and recommend it for everyone (for business or vacation trips). The service is excellent and front desk people are very nice and helpful. Executive lounge service and breakfast is great. There is a shopping plaza just across the hotel that has restaurants and a nice size market. Hotel shuttle service is fast and good ($10...

Great location close to the airport and a good end to an amazing, busy trip. The rooms are huge with big comfy beds, nice bathroom and lovely pool area. Good sized gym onsite for if it rains. There are a number of shops and restaurants in the area for evening meal. Top tip, get a normal taxi to the airport...

If you need a hotel in San Jose this is a nice place. We were traveling around Costa Rica and needed a room in the city for one night and being a Hilton guy I booked here. This is a wonderful hotel, open air hallways, friendly staff, large rooms and a fantastic breakfast. I will always stay here in San...

Would not recommend hotel to my family, friends or business associated. The first room we would not stay at due to the order which was musty. I got sick with the next room we stayed in and had to keep blowing my nose and was full of bugs. The third room we moved to was noisy. Not a good experience

Very close to the airport. Spacious rooms very clean. Ambiance around the hotel makes you feel that you're in a tree house in the middle of the city. Breakfast is more like a brunch every day not just Sunday. Very attentive staff. Transportation and tour bookings on site. You get more than you expect for being close to the airport.
