Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Exp Overall a great property. Genette and her entire was great. September 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by El servicio del personal te hace sentir como en casa El hotel es bonito y comido, solo tiene el inconveniente de estar en el centro lo que te aleja de los tours que por lo general son fuera de la ciudad. El personal es muy atento y servicial, el restaurante para cenar tiene un excelente vista. Recomendable si tienes que estar en el centro de la ciudad. September 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excelente experiencia Con gusto recomiendo este hotel, el personal es muy atento, realmente nos hicieron sentir muy bien. September 9, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Regular Atención en recepción manifiestamente mejorable. Instalaciones muy anticuadas y necesitadas de una urgentísima renovación. El wifi no funcionaba en la habitación. En la recepción dijeron que era un problema del router que estaban arreglando los técnicos (cosa que resultó falsa). Excelente desayuno buffet, sin duda alguna lo mejor de este hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice stay in the heart of San Jose Excellent location. Walking distance to the main drag, plenty of restaurants nearby.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Permanencia satisfactoria Limpieza, trato del personal y del Restaurante donde desayuné. Su posición cómoda y céntrica en la ciudad con acceso a centros de comercio sin dificultad.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Restaurate del Piso 17 El restaurant del piso 17 tiene unas vistas increibles y los menus especiales son espectaculares.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Una estadía placentera Tengo la costumbre de que cuando viajo a San José hospedarme en un hotel, me di la oportunidad de probar en este hotel y quede sumamente satisfecho, con todos los servicios del hotel, el restaurante de los pisos superiores es exquisito y la atención de la señorita es sumamente placentera y sumamente amable, recomiendo este hotel July 15, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, comfortable, service staff excellent,,, Good location,,,fix the shower,,,better food in rest.,,, Maids and porters were excellant,,, July 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel de calidad En varias ocasiones me he trasladado a San José por asuntos de trabajo, capacitaciones, reuniones, etc. Siempre me había alojado en otros hoteles por recomendaciones de compañer@s de trabajo; sin embargo en esta ocasión me recomendaron éste, y la experiencia fue estupenda, al punto de que me seguiré alojando ahí todas las veces que viaje a San José. El personal es muy amable y atento, lo hacen sentir en familia e importante con solo pasar la puerta principal del hotel. Las habitaciones son muy cómodas, una vista hermosa y el detalle del coffe maker en el cuarto para prepararse un café a cualquier hora fue genial, el desayuno impresionante, muy bueno. No tuve la oportunidad de disfrutar del gimnasio pero en mi próxima estadía lo visitaré. Se los recomiendo para mí sería un hotel de 10 estrellas. July 13, 2014
