Very good 8,0
Beautiful lobby but beds could be better.
Beautiful hotel lobby with lovely decor and helpful staff. Room was small and felt a bit industrial, but it was fine. Only complaint is that the bed is pretty hard and the pillows are very hard and not soft like I expect pillows to be. Location is in the middle of a bunch of stores and some restaurants. Not a critique of the hotel, but this was our first time in San Jose and found the area to be very hectic and stressful. We had to leave before breakfast, so I cant comment on that. Overall we had a nice stay for a good price.

Exceptional 10,0
Great hotel and it’s restaurant. Only down side is it’s is difficult to navigate the city traffic and there is no signage as to where the hotel is. We were lucky and asked at random and found it.

A couple days in San Jose-Costa Rica!
Disclaimer: I was up-graded to a better room -Very spacious room, with own yacuzzi - I did not used. It- -Room had all the basics: AC, WiFi, Mini bar, TV -Included breakfast on my reservation. Large buffet -Very Central -Friendly personnel -The big room looks cold: no pictures, needs a small rug to cut the emphy space, the wall's paints - pictures - does not help to "warm up" the room
