Feedback from Travelers

Amazing - simply amazing! Highly recommend.

- JASON B, FEB 2020

Enjoyable intro to CR culture and history

- MARTIN T, MAR 2016

The hotel room was small, but not unexpected for an urban, historic hotel. The breakfast was very good, the hotel location was good for walking to nearby local markets.
