This is not a luxury hotel or a hotel located near exciting attractions, but it was clean and comfortable with friendly bilingual staff. I stayed hear while getting dental work done by Dr. Anglada. It was a quick walk to his office. The neighborhood seems safe and there are little shops and food nearby.

I stayed at the KC in Sabana. The location is pretty good. Close to central downtown but there are some good restaurants close so it's an easy and relatively safe walk. The grounds of the hotel are very nice and the pool area is immaculate. My room however wasn't bad but also wasn't good. I'd equate the room quality to... More

Rooms are comfortable, and food is very good, I liked the decoration details in every area of this hotel. You can take the sun at the pool area, close to the restaurant and then go for a walk to La Sabana park or San Jose downtown.

Great chain! I always enjoy Aloft properties. This one was lacking in prompt service at the lounge bar and restaurant. Not at all personable most of the time. It appears they are struggling with the POP system. They need some training in my opinion.

I called to send a bottle of wine to a room for a friend of mine travelling to Costa Rica on her honeymoon. The extremely helpful and friendly female concierge quickly assisted me. Within a few hours, my friend had texted me they had received it! The concierge was professional and courteous! I highly recommend this hotel!

Had a great stay with the family. Clean hotel and friendly helpful staff. Breakfast buffet is very good and the location worked well for us - quiet street just a few minutes walk to the park and 5 minute taxi to the Coca Cola bus terminal.
