    Hotel Santo Tomas was the perfect home base for us while we traveled Costa Rica. The staff was amazing and always ready to help in any way. Very clean and the best breakfast!

    Pleasant Stay
    Refurbished old mansion, with spacious, though somewhat basic, rooms and lots of comfortable outdoor space. The block looks a bit seedy but within easy walking distance of many sights and restaurants.

    Loved our stay here. Easy walking distance to parks/museums/restaurants, very friendly staff, amazing breakfast, and we loved being able to use the hot tub/pool during down time. Will definitely look to stay here again on future trips.
