Hotel Colonial, San Jose
The staff was great but the hotel is in an okay neighborhood. I did not know that when I booked that the guest wasn’t allowed a visitor

good hotel
This hotel was great, the only thing is that they were remodeling the hotel so there were a lot of noise during the day and it was a little messy but overall the location of the hotel was great and the staff was very friendly

The most spacious room (junior suite) we stayed in while visiting Costa Rica. Friendly staff. Excellent water pressure in the shower. Great bedding but the bed could use an egg-crate pad. Loud, Loud, Loud street noise took some time getting used to after the first night.

Centrally located but loud
This hotel was centrally located, which was great for walking to nearby restaurants and shops. However, the street and train noise was very loud, and my window seemed to rattle as traffic and trains passed. Location was good and only there for one night before flying out, so not too bad. But if you'd like a more comfortable stay, best to look elsewhere.

Nice hotel in a good location
A nice hotel in the downtown area of San Jose - close to the main two shopping avenues. They arranged an airport shuttle for us for a good price.
