Score from 142 reviews Excellent
Clean, well maintained, close to a variety of restaurants. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful.
Really hard to get a quiet room, despite my requests when I booked and again when I checked in (located on a really busy street/bus route). Dinner at the hotel was poor, better to go out. Poor value, won't return.
WiFi Clean Fitness room
Had to pay for third person
Staff is frendly.
Food is so poor and unpalatable! But I think it is mainly Costa Rica's problem. Most of hotels which I tried in Costa Rica had the same trouble.
Good view of the mountains surrounding San Jose. Free wifi & parking. We stayed at Park Inn a few nights before, wish we had booked Tryp for our whole stay in San Jose. Was just lovely (cheaper & with much better breakfast - do the waffles!). At checkout my wife left her new iphone behind, but the staff ran after us and returned it :)
Parking was outside hotel on adjacent block. At night you needed to get a guard to open each time you needed to access your car. Lobby is up a flight of stairs, no elevator , so with heavy bags its a bit of a nuisance.
everything is good
breakfast is good but not more choices
A staff very attentive and friendly,varied breakfast, comfortable bed. Located in a quiet area.
I was upgraded to a premium suite, thanks to Booking.Com. Absolutely great, spacious, well appointed, sitting area with 2 sofas, bar and under counter refrigerator. The bed was extremely comfortable, comparable to my Tempur-Pedic at home. Staff was great and extremely attentive. Location was fabulous, museums, parks, shopping all within walking distance or very inexpensive taxi ride, The breakfast is excellent.
Sad to leave, sorry i couldn't stay longer.
The hotel was convenient and the included breakfast was great.
Upon check in I notified them that I had erred on the number of days we wished to stay and ask if we could extend the booking by one more night at the same rate. They agreed at the time but did not honor the agreement upon checkout
Comfortable and safe
Poor wifi service
Parking and wi-fi included, cleanliness, location
Good location in downtown. Comfortable room and bed (though not as amazing as the photos show). Nice view of the city and the hills beyond.
Average food at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast.
Very nice hotel in best location,new and big rooms, very comfortable! Perfect to visti San Josè
I really liked the retro style of the hotel. The building looks like it's from the seventies but it's kept in an excellent condition. A decent four star hotel at a very decent rate! Big rooms! Recommendable!
I loved the staff, everyone from the parking attendant (super nice) to the staff inside the hotel.
Only that for the cost is a bit high for the location. It's great if you are staying in San Jose but if you are traveling around the country it's not a bit far. I stayed out of the room 2 nights due to the distance.
the hotel was clean, the restaurant's food was surprisingly good and the staff were really helpful. Sabana park is right next door which makes for a great place to walk around when you don't want to deal with walking around central San jose.
The airport shuttle costs $30 for up to 4 people which is not stated on their website. Also, if you want to have a lot of choices for food or to be close to night life this isn't the hotel for you as there isn't much around the hotel.
Cleanliness, Wi-fi in bedrooms, parking, location,
Great location. Lot of possibilities to eat around the hotel. Internet is very fast and stable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great breakfast buffet.
Nothing. We were very satisfied.
no window in my room. not like the beautiful picture online.
the house staff and reception are outstanding. The hotel is a five star hotel in terms of expectations for Costa Rica. I visited the country for almost two weeks and stayed at this hotel 3 times during my various maneuvers across the country as it is ideal, centrally located and incredibly nice. Once again the reception and house staff are fantastic and the food buffet for breakfast is wonderful and healthy
there is absolutely nothing not to like about this hotel
Local and International Calls are free. The staff. The location.
The food could be better
excelllent reception staff, ALEX.
Location, close to down town.
1. Rooms were to bright, it needs dark curtains. 2. Breakfast was the same, it needed more verities. 3. The east side of the hotel music was to loud, it woke us up in the middle of the night a few times. I think there is a night club or a bar somewhere near.
Great hotel! Would come back again
continental breakfast is plenty! not so far from bus terminal or centre of the city.
