The hotel is quaint, full of character and cozy. The staff is very accommodating, and professional.

Good value overall
Good value after I got a new room. My initial room was a windowless dungeon-like room with no windows to the outside and consequently little airflow. But they promptly switched me to a better ventilated room upon request. Bathroom sink was cramped and awkward, and hot water ran out about 8 minutes into my shower. But service from the doorman (Paolo or Pablo was his name) was absolutely excellent- a friendly a helpful gentleman. Overall good value for a brief overnight stay in San Jose on the way to our destination.Bring earplugs. And staff was good about coordinating transportation with the tour company that we used for our trip to Tortuguero NP.

We chose this hotel because its located close to the center of town & was good value for the money. The Jade Museum, National Museum, Gold Museum and the National Theater are all within ~15 min walking distance. So are several restaurants. The hotel itself is a 100 yr old house, with nice woodwork that has been converted. The staff was very helpful. The hotel does not have an elevator which can be a problem if you have large bags - but the staff helped carry ours upstairs. Our room was spacious, the beds comfortable,but the bathroom was small & difficult for 2 people to use. Appliance wise, the room is sparse - no coffee maker, fridge or microwave. We missed the coffee maker because we had to leave at 5am for our flight. Breakfast is included but for other meals you have to go elsewhere.

Nice hotel, but noisy.
I really liked the hotel vibe, the building, the history, and restaurant attached. Overall the place was clean and comfortable. However, my room was noisy (I don't complain easily, and can sleep through most things), but I found myself waking up at night because birds chirping and cars honking in the early morning. Perhaps if you were on the opposite side of the building this would not be an issue.
