8/10 Very good

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in San Jose. The hotel goes by Villa de Rios in Costa Rica but as Apartotel on Expedia not sure why but it’s easier to find the location using Villa de Rios. The hotel was okay for just the one night. The bed was comfortable and we liked that the room had two bathrooms but the smell was not good. It smelled like cigarettes and air freshener/moth balls. We let the room air out and it got slightly better. We did not use the pool but it looked nice. The place itself is pretty centric and there is a covid testing lab less about 5 mins away by car which was very convenient.
