Reviewed 13 September 2016

Spent five nights here last week and found this lovely apartotel to be one of those best kept secrets, so to speak. The front desk staff are so very helpful and friendly that they make you feel like you are part of the family. The place is very well maintained, spotless, and is tastefully decorated with local artwork. The grounds are beautifully landscaped ~ simply "Pura Vida" from start to finish. It is also located in a more quiet, yet convenient area, within walking distance to the new stadium and adjacent to the park, La Sabana. I travel to Costa Rica every month, and this is a place I will stay again and again!

OH, and I love to cook--the room has a full size fridge, a two burner "stove," a small table, utensils and everything I needed to prepare some very delectable Italian meals! The domestic staff even brought me some spices I needed and came by to enjoy the aromas wafting from our room into the hallway! The laundry room is clean and available at all hours--with an iron and board for those of you on business trips. LOVE THIS PLACE!

Room Tip: Rooms above the pool and away from walkways might be more quiet, but I like the action, so the groun...

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!
