I thought I was in a fancy NY hotel with all that security...Front desk was very helpful and understood English..I got a discount being a Dr. Anglada patient. Carpet looked new and hotel was in good shape. Breakfast was excellent with mixed fresh fruit and eggs were served to me cause of my chewing needs. Location was very good for...

We stayed here for two nights as part of a larger group package. Hot water was not to had nor was an adequate supply of towels. Air conditioning was not an option. I wouldn't trust the room's door to keep out a strong wind let alone someone who wanted to break into your room. There is a bonus of staying...

Visited Costa Rica for Dental services and Tourism; both were a great experience. Unfortunately, the same could not be said of our stay in El Sesteo which as others have noted has apparently gone down hill. Proven by the overall dated appearance of the property and rooms, and compounded by the poor front desk service. Added to the overall bad...

I haven't stayed here for a couple of years but before that, every year for differing periods of time. I like that it is close to Sabana Park. Lots going on there. The nearby restaurants are not great - with a couple of exceptions. If you like fast food, it is available at McDonalds. But, it is near to bus...

You know, any time your interaction includes apologizing to the receptionist for having to interrupt him to get your key to your room, it's probably downhill from there. I've stayed at this hotel several times over the years, it's proximity to Sabana park, ARCR, and other services makes it pretty convenient; but since it's been purchased (presumably by a Chinese...

The Registraion desk is manned by very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful young men. They will suggest interesting or exciting places to visit and order your tour or taxi or make reservations. They are fluent in English, so it's a relief when your Spanish isn't quite clear enough to explain your needs. There are two stories to this Ushaped hotel with...

Used to be able to handle this place for a night. They have changed ownership and no longer allow a small pet which puts them off the map for us. Price is just OK, food poor, coffee weak, creepy ceilings that are hard to look up at, traffic very noisy, and easy to hear your neighbors. Carpet that is old...

for staying in San Jose for one or two nights, it´s a good alternative. It´s not far from the center, you can walk easily within 15 min. Sometimes you hear a noise from a train but thats all noises you can hear. The rooms and the surrounding is ok. Nice Poolarea but without a bar. Point to highlight: very friendly...

A good hotel in San Jose, if you only stay for a night. All in all is very average, nothing to write home about. Location is quiet, if you can overhear an occasional whistle of a train passing by. Small garden with a small pool, no bar, but a fridge with drinks.
