Nice hotel but extra charge for guest or visitor
It was a nice hotel with nice rooms with friendly staff. They do charge $50 for extra guest unless you book for two people. Was just a query of mine.

Unique hotel in el centro
This hotel is downtown with unique floor plans. Basically there are two levels per level. Some rooms are stacked so you have to use stairs to get to your room after you get off the elevator. Some rooms are two levels with the stairs inside the room. Some of the upgraded rooms have a kitchenette and 1/2 bath downstairs with the bed and full bath upstairs. There are no cooking pots or pans so the cooktop is more for show unless you bring your kitchen with you. Some rooms do not have windows. Breakfast has plenty of options. There is a money exchange place downstairs next to the front desk. There is a pizza place on the corner across the street and a grocery store around the corner. Overall it is a good unique hotel for being in the center of the city.

Business Trip to San Jose
I've been to Costa Rica on several vacations. This was a business trip and my first time I had stayed in San Jose. The couch wasn't the most comfortable. Beds were nice. Make sure to ask for a room with a window. I believe this was an old office building that was converted into a hotel so some of the rooms do not have a window. Breakfast was adequate. Gym was small but OK. Rate was very good. Location was in the heart of town. Only problem is the heart of town isn't the greatest. I was told it wasn't the safest place to walk around at night which I still did and never had any issues. I had some free time on a Sunday and did a lot of walking. The city center areas has many streets that don't allow cars at any time. Overall I would recommend the hotel.
