Things are different and more organize..Hotel is run by a Chinese-Costa rican Family:The wife of the owner and her two daughters.Upon my arrival I was warned by one of the daughters that if I brought a friend is 20 dollars more.Also she brought it out that girls are not allowed in in they are Not proper dress..At the beginning they seems defensive and cold..Complaining about ex manager Robinson which I know from my previous stayed at this hotel..Finally after the ice melt they were nice to me and get me her personal dentist which I really appreciate it
Breakfast is OK...Coffee is 24 hours which she told me the day that I left.Dont ask for Mayonnaise in the breakfast because she said she dont use it..Orange juice is made from powder ..
No milk..Only cream in breakfast..For the price 47 dollars its OK...
Location is very Good .Blocks from teatro nacional and the infamous Del rey...Behind the INS building and the Holiday Inn
No girls hanging out in the Lobby like it used to be in Calvin times
Taxi is not a problem because they call one for U
I couldnt use my UBER app because like in all San Jose hotels WIFI was weak and never works
It was an amish family from Pennsylvanian in the breakfast dress as in their country .I wonder..Did they are allowed to use planes??
Hotel its for sale
They still got legals problems since the time Ex Manager Calvin was skimming money from the employees and pocket it .
Did anybody knows anything about Calvin??
I heard he is in Colombia Now.
This african american manager was a case but he was nice to me in the Hemingway and in The Tiquicia Hotel.However every place I went to San Jose he owns people money and skim somebody.
While on breakfast she seems to be bother everytime I asked for water or something.That happens When Owner Family are the employees.They dont feel to be polite or courteous to the guest.They really don't seem to care .Dont feed the birds in the breakfast area because they kept coming back at you.Atmosphere is great and U feel like in a Hemingway museum
U got a safe in the room
Rooms dont have phones inside and I need to do a lot of locals calls and it was frustrating because I had to asked her for a favor of using the front desk phone
I stayed only for a night
Hotel is Not doing well after the changes and its up for sale
She also warned that if anybody help her to sell the hotel she wont give any commission because by law person had to be in real state costa rican license
We depart as friends .I probably gonna stayed there again in my future dentist visits in San Jose....Breakfast began only after 730am so if U have to go earlier dont even bother ....
At the End I review this hotel as average.
Construction site outside my window.But it wasnt working that Wednesday
Be careful..Those hanging outside the hotel are trannies(she males) and Not girls
Shower got good pressure and its Hot and cold
