Nice, clean and comfortable. The staff is quite helpful and friendly. iEverything is made to be environment friendly; no plastic utensils, you can sort all garbage and you get to it and drink in beautiful ceramic dishes, glasses and cups. It is my favorite place to stay in San Jose and breakfast is delicious.

I'm so glad I chose this hotel for my one night stay in San Jose before heading to the airport. The shuttle driver came over to the smaller Sansa airport terminal and was there and in uniform before I even walked out of the small hanger. We had a pleasant trip to the hotel and the hotel staff was out to grab my bags before I could even walk up the stairs. The check in was easy and we were even able to change the shuttle the next morning for my travel companion as we were on separate flights. They also brought us cappuccinos and cookies as we were checking in. We felt like VIPs. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. What an adorable hotel. The pool and breakfast area are beautiful. Lots of flowers and birds. It truly feels like an oasis in the city. It's walking distance to a large park and a few restaurants. You can even get room service from one of the restaurants down the street if you'd like to not leave the property. The free breakfast was delicious. Made to order eggs, rice and beans, fruit, yogurt, etc. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Shower gets hot fast and towels are soft. What more could you ask for? Especially at this price! Would stay here again in a heartbeat if my travels brought me to San Jose and feel completely comfortable if I were alone.

Absolutely loved this small local hotel. Well situated for all needs. We stayed at the beginning of our trip for four days and again for two after a stay in Monteverde. It was like coming home. All the staff are so committed to making sure your experience here is positive. The pool area is beautifully landscaped as is a great spot for breakfast or just to relax after a busy day. We would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to fellow travelers. Thanks to the staff at La Sabana for a wonderful experience.

We stayed here for two nights in August in a clean and spacious two bedroomed apartment. The hotel is conveniently located near to La Sabana park and is about a 20-30minute walk to the centre of San Jose. The buffet breakfast was good and pleasant sitting out on the pool terrace. We didn't use the pool as the weather wasn't quite up to it. Decent fast food chicken restaurant close by and short walk to a very good Italian albeit a bit expensive.

Thank you for your comments!! So happy to hear you enjoyed relaxing at La Sabana, and also took advantage of our hotel´s location. We are close to everything, yet away from the noise and hassle. La Sabana Park is the cherry on the pie. With its lush green year-round foliage it is a beautiful spot and also the best place to soak Tico Urban Life at it´s best!

Thank you for mentioning we have many dinning options within walking distance. We are very excited to report we now have Room Service!! You can order a snack of a full three course meal to be served in the privacy of your room. Perfect option for those who wish to stay in, but do not feel like cooking. Hope to show you this new service during your next visit!

Hope you have a wonderful day, best regards!

Perfect oasis of quietness in the city! Great place to get settled before starting your Costa Rica round trip or get prepared for departure. We did both. Staff is extremely helpful and nice. The pool is great. And close to the park! Best place with kids.

Thank you for your comments!! So happy you enjoyed your stay! Many of our guests call us the Oasis in the City, we love to think of ourselves like a peaceful haven for both body and mind :).

And, we love to host families!! So glad you could enjoy beautiful Sabana Park with the kids!! When my kids were small they loved feeding the ducks and riding horses during weekends. Now that they are teens they like riding their bikes and going on the paddle boats in the lake. It´s just a great place for families of all ages!!

We hope that we have the honor of hosting you again. Thank you so much for writing, have a great day!!
