Great hotel in an excellent location
I stayed 2 nights at Hotel Maragato, located on the pedestrian street Ave. Central, just a few steps from the National Theater, where you can easily catch a taxi if needed. The location was perfect - close to restaurants, shopping, banks/ATMs, mercado central, & walking distance to sights/parks/museums. It's also right across from a casino, if that's your thing. Since it is a busy street, it can be a bit noisy. The receptionist asked me if I wanted a room with a balcony (noisier option, facing the pedestrian street) or one without (the quieter option). I opted for the balcony, as I wanted to be able to people-watch. I'm glad I did. I stayed in Rm 806 (top floor) with the balcony. It actually wasn't noisy at all, as the door kept enough of the noise out; plus I was high enough. As for the room, it was comfortable & very clean, including the bathroom with a nice, warm shower! It also had a fridge & mini-bar. The A/C worked very well, & the wifi worked well in the rooms and on each floor. Breakfast is served on the 3rd floor dining room, and it was great. You had your choice of breakfast from a menu (American with eggs, toast, etc. OR Continental OR traditional Costa Rican breakfast, and a couple of other options). It always came with coffee, juice, and fruits. The staff here were also very friendly. Overall, I had a great, relaxing stay in this hotel.
