    Hotel is an oasis in a city of chaos. Great as a base if you need to overnight in San Jose but I wouldn't be staying in this city for too long.

    The check-in at 3 p.m.

    Staff are friendly. Wonderful location. Good value. I see it is listed as 3 stars, and that is conservative. I would rate it higher. It is a noisy, busy city and the hotel is a welcome relief from that.

    Breakfast buffet...always the same, and by 9am, they tend to be out of things and in no hurry to refill. Day 2 the maid removed the bathrobe from my room, and it took 3 days and 3 requests to get it replaced.Internet was out a few times, and staff were very matter of fact about this.

    - Comfortable bed & pillows - good room size - friendly staff - good location

    - Expensive water from mini bar ($6.50 for 500ml of Fiji)

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    - Free Internet - Restaurant with views over the city - Hotel in the City
