    Very good

    They gave us the room before the scheduled time, since our. arrived very early in the morning. The gentleman who runs the bar during the day, very kind, explained to us all about Costa Rican beers, and suggested places for us to go near the hotel. On the way back, we could use the hotel taxi, it seemed to us a good service, fast,. how and sure, also for the hour they offered us fruit, rolls, tea. and coffee to take away.

    The taxi I had coordinated never arrived, there was no one with. my name written on a sign as they had indicated. When I arrived, there was no one to help with the luggage. The bathtub didn't have a plug to hold the water, so I called the front desk and they sent someone over. I never got to use the bathtub, I touch myself. The bed was not as comfortable. I only used the pool once because the water was frozen, as a suggestion it should be. In general the rooms and facilities of the hotel are quite old or at least it seems that way and some of them are neglected, like the bar of the swimming pool. I asked for a room service drink and they never took me.

    hotel is quiet and close to the center of San Jose. breakfast is very rich, gym is very complete. pool area is nice. staff is very attentive and professional, especially the receptionist who attended us. room is large.

    hotel is a little old in my opinion, it needs a little renovation. Since we entered the room there was an unpleasant smell, like mold or maybe it was the carpeted floor (which by the way had a pretty big stain), you should think about removing it and using laminate or porcelain flooring. Similarly since we arrived, room in front had some kind of vacuum cleaner on, however, it was turned off until the next morning, so it was uncomfortable to be listening to the noise of the engine all night. mirrors in front of each other, creating a double reflection. pool water was very cold, you should think about it being heated. View from the window.

    -The breakfast staff is very attentive and helpful to your needs. Particularly Mercedes and Alvaro are people who make you feel welcome. -The people at the front desk try to arrange for whatever you need. -The pool and Jacuzzi are very good, as is the printing service. Too bad there are only 2 computers and you have to use them because the internet signal in the rooms is bad.

    bar manager made me feel uncomfortable by refusing to check my credit, said I didn't have any and didn't solve this situation, all I had to do was go to the front desk to correct that detail. internet in the rooms is not working well. signal is constantly going down. -I asked for three beds in my room and first night we only had two. publicity for the congress I attended said that the hotel provided transportation and it was not true. They don't even have that service available for the trip to the airport. neither for the arrival nor the departure, If you want something like that. it's an additional cost,

    bathroom is high, clean and aesthetically beautiful. room was well equipped, plenty of places to plug in a laptop or cell phone. hotel itself is good, it has an industrial concept, with exposed concrete, makes it different, I like it! breakfast is very good, you find many options in the menu, taste was quite good (Believe me I have tried many hotel breakfasts, this is one of the best).

    mattress of the bed was old and with the internal material worn out by the use, it was like sleeping in "dunes" or in the hump of a camel... back pain the following days I had to control it with pills. Due to hotel policies, if you order food at home, pizza or some fast food, because the menu of the "room service", restaurant you don't want, messenger can't enter after the Lobby, go to your room, you must go out to pick up your food until the Lobby. Although I am Costa Rican, it is the first part of the world where I have traveled that has this kind of restrictions. location of the rooms is a bit confusing.

    Perfect

    comfortable hotel, has everything for a vacation or business stay, Gym, pool, restaurants, location is not ideal for walking around but by taxi is very close to downtown San Jose, if you bring a car do not hesitate, ample parking and excellent place to go and come to the attractions near San Jose as the Irazu volcano, I think there is no perfect location in San Jose, if you stay downtown, you must use public transport or car to go to the other attractions. staff is very attentive. There is a small shopping area nearby to try out the local food and buy something you forgot to give on the trip. Although we did very well on this trip. If there is a next time I will do it in a different way, 2 nights in San Jose and rest driving around the different attractions of the country staying one night near the attraction, especially in Quepos, Manuel Antonio and akejadis volcanoes of SanJise. Quepos deserves a stay of at least 2 nights.

    Staff was friendly.

    When I arrived in the evening the power was out, so no lights and no one to me park the car and help with bags up front. When I checked in the bell bow helped me through the dark with a flash light, but got confused with the room he was taking me too so it took a while. The ac was inconsistent and blew hot air for hours at a time. I had bitten by mites in one bed so I transferred to another.When I had breakfast in the morning I was asked to sit in the corner and rushed through eating so they could close the breakfast buffet.

    The hotel was incredibly clean and pretty. I enjoyed the gym and the pool. It really is a gorgeous hotel for business travelers.

    I had hoped that I could walk around the area from the hotel. But, the area turned out to be neither pretty nor safe. Consequently, I was stuck in the hotel with cabs taking me around. San Jose is not where travellers (aside from business travellers) should go. Skip San Jose. Seriously.Take a flight directly from SJO to one of the more scenic areas in the country. The food and drinks at the hotel were overpriced for the area. A waterbottle was $4 (where it is $1.50 or $2 elsewhere). The breakfast buffet, which was not included, was $18 and pretty basic. Breakfasts come with most other hotels in the area. I would recommend La Grand Oro in San Jose over this hotel. La Grand Oro is $50-75 more. Also, the Radisson's maids (for some reason) kept coming into the room despite the "Do Not Enter" sign on the doorknob. I asked what they needed (in Spanish) but received no reply.
