Good location and staff, basic and a bit noisy
Good location with big rooms, friendly staff, reasonably priced breakfast. Early morning trains are very noisy. Nice that guests are able to use the pool and communal kitchen of backpacker hostel across the street. Airport shuttle was extremely efficient and reliable. Hotel is good value for the price and location.

I really liked this well kept colonial property located right in the heart of San Jose. Near the courthouse, I found coffee shops and restaurants with multiple dinning options and delicious cousin. Perfect area for a nice walk and friendly people around who do not hesitate smiling to you and saying hello or buenos dias. I would definitely book this pretty place in the future. I will be back!!!

Dodgy outside, lovely inside.
Getting to the location is a bit dodgy and we were told to walk down the main street with more traffic/people to get into the centre. Once inside the place is lovely!! I had a private bathroom, which was nearly as big as the bedroom!!
