Feedback from Travelers

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.

- ANNA H, MAR 2016

The people made a huge difference. We felt very welcome and cared for. The Hotel facility and infrastructure seem a little old, but this is all we needed in San Jose.
