We only stayed in San Jose and this hotel for 1 night, but were pleased with our time there. Our room was spacious and very modern and the wi-fi was fast. The restaurant was VERY nice and the hotel staff was all very friendly and professional. We were able to walk to a large local park a few blocks away....

I can't stress this enough. .. this place is a dump! We were put in a third floor room and hauled our bags up a filthy staircase because there is no elevator. Our room was out dated and in poor shape. There was no air, the fixtures came off the wall in the bathroom, and no refrigerator even though there...

Stayed at Hotel Autentico for two nights. Our room was on the third floor. (no elevators) The website and photos on this site show updated rooms. I don't know where those rooms are located. (Perhaps another section of the hotel.) Our room was VERY basic. Three twin beds, window AC unit, and bathroom. Beds were very hard - I did...

Hotel Autentico has two levels of room. One is for budget travellers, especially those on a tour, and a higher class with better rooms. We were on a tour, and our room was basic and clean with good beds, hot water, and a good night's sleep. The staff are quite friendly and appreciative of travelers who attempt to use Spanish,...

A very good well run hotel.with no frills just basics but everything you could wish for if passing through San Jose for a day or two. Clean decent size rooms, hairdryer, coffee machine, good comfy beds, strong warm shower. Near enough to airport and near enough to town centre but not too close to either.

Stayed here twice last month (Feb 15) just before and after a tour of Costa Rica. The hotel was about 20 minutes from airport (we arrived at 23.00 and left at 04.00 so no traffic issues) Lovely base and currently being upgraded. We stayed 3 nights before the tour and one night after. We actually got the same room on...

The hotel was not exactly in the center of San Jose but a few minutes out of the main city. This I did not mind because there was a supermarket walking distance. The pool was very nice and medium sized. The rooms were comfortable and moderate with hot water considering other hotels have complicated procedures to get hot water. My...

The hotel was okay. The rooms were fine though I never figured out how to reach the ceiling fan that had a pull chain designed for very tall people. The shower had hot water which was a nice treat as other places I stayed in Costa Rica required one to turn on an electric heater to heat the water as...
