A gem in San Jose!
Jose at Che k in was cordial and attentive. The room was clean, updated and has a nice view. The hotel was central, walking distance to a pedestrian avenue that has everything you need to make your stay pleasurable. It is close to Tracopa and other bus systems. Breakfast was good, too.The price was really affordable. I give it a 5 stars and recommend it. Keep up the good work!

8/10 Very good

Good location in the centre of San Jose, walking distance to the squares and central market. Also walkable from the Tuasa bus terminal to/from airport. The room was simplistic and no air con. Breakfast is served on site in a cafe which is also for non-residents. We had an excellent gallo pinto.

4/10 Fair

I’ve said here twice both times 2 weeks at a time. First time it was decent. Staff wasn’t over helpful but they got the job done and it was a pretty good experience. The breakfast is good. The people who work that part are so kind and pleasant to see. This second trip was rough. They over charged me a day and would never refund it. They kept saying the manager wasn’t there. Only the manager could do it. I had surgery while I was there. I needed a extra pillow to prop up with. They fought me for 2 days and had to get managers again to get me a pillow. I left my room key in the room when I checked out. At the front desk they held me hostage locked in the hotel I already over paid a day for they wouldn’t refund to go get the key before they would unlock it and let me leave. Mind blown the way I was treated. Room was perfect and the key was where I left it. They were soooo rude. I doubt I’d be back and I’d use cation booking with them. They do as they please and sorry no manager!
