    We left very early in the morning and did not eat breakfast.

    The floor of the shower was beautiful polished stone, but very slippery.

    The hotel is right in the city center, 5 minutes walk to the Gold Museum and National Theatre. The staff was very nice and helpful. It is handy that they've got their own restaurant. The food was good and the service perfect. The room was very clean, including amenities, hair dryer and Wi-Fi in the room.

    Nothing, I will never go back there and cant recommend it - the good ranking is only because its cheap

    I had only 6 hours before my flight and booked a quiet room and they confirmed it written!!! But they gave me a room to the road with a traffic light that was beeping all the time - impossible to sleep here. They gave me another quiet room with a big noisy machine infront teh window. Terribel noisy. The 3rd room was to the inner patio and was better, but I had to move 3 times till a got a medium noise room. CRAZY!!! 2. I needed an invoice for my business. The reception Guy Rexon (? or something like this was his name), couldn´t even give me an invoice after he charged my credir card. He told me only in the morning. But I left the hotel at 4 am so I knew they will not give it to me. Fact: The girl at the reception at 4 am wouldn´t do it! They give you a proforma or whatever but they dont want to give invoices because they want to avoid paying taxes.

    Very friendly and helpful staff, always pleasant and welcoming. Great breakfast with lots of warm and cold options! Large room with stair and elevator access. Fantastic location right in the heart of San Jose. Highly recommended!

    They could use better curtains to keep the sun out in the early mornings.
