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.

I needed a place to stay for a night unexpectedly. Las Orquídeas had a room, the manager was friendly and understanding, the room was clean and well appointed and the included breakfast was delicious. Starbucks is across the Paseo Ruben Dario and there are several stores within walking distance. I have found a new oasis in Los Yoses, Sanjose.

Nice people and good spot, but just far too noisy to have any decent sleep. From the trains and the horns blasting, to the room literally shaking when the trains go past and the thin walls where you can hear everything going on in the surrounding rooms (and I mean everything). We also went to get into bed on the...
