This room was very standard in a very good location. The room could be a bit loud at times and made it difficult to sleep. However, perks such as kitchen use and location made is bearable to stay in for a couple of nights.

The staff are all really friendly and helpful. The hotel is basic but very clean and well maintained. There is hot water and bathrooms are clean. The garden is a lovely place to hang out and the breakfasts are good.

I traveled to this hotel with a G adventures group and enjoyed every moment. The beds were clean, good breakfast and close walk to the city. I would definitely recommend this hotel to people staying in the San Jose area!

The breakfast was good--especially the omelette and the typico (rice, bean, egg). The location was good for what I wanted to do--a nearby oral surgeon for implant. And it was only 20 minute walk to downtown San Jose. One of the nicest places for shared space that I have ever been outside of luxury hotels. Front Desk Ernesto was a...

If you are looking for something glamourous don't go. Ideal for a short stay in san jose not far from the airport. Budget customers or backpackers recommended, friendly common area with sofa and backyard, nice tipical breakfast. Rooms are simple and overall clean.

We needed a soft place to land after our voyage from frozen Saskatchewan to warm Central America. This place did it for us, we did not walk very far to find a bank, grocery store and a restaurant to fill our needs. The management did everything they could to make us welcome and comfortable.

I found the hotel clean with comfortable Central American furnishings. The front desk people were good at English and helpful with ideas for places to go and places to eat. I liked the garden area. Cable TV was available and even some shows in English.
