    A good stay

    Stay was partly due to proximity of the Cima Hospital where I was having treatment. No real complaints other than shower glass could be a bit cleaner and dated carpet. Service was good and great location with excellent restaurants close around

    Excelente ubicación! dentro del complejo Plaza Tempo (mercado gastronómico) a pocos metros de la Av. Escazú y del Multiplaza. Respecto al hotel deberían considerar tener frigobar en las habitaciones y que sean rigurosos con las personas que no usan mascarilla.

  • 4.0.Fair

    If you look at the positive reviews you will see copious mentions of this property's excellent location. Unfortunately, that is where the positives end. Here's the bad: no glasses or bottled water in the room; the TV screen was fuzzy and only had Spanish language channels; the halls were filthy; the breakfast was a fixed plate that was unimpressive; the bar was expensive ($4 USD for a 500ml bottle of soda); the package for the bar of soap was torn open at one end (used?); no fridge in room. I could go on...

    This is our second time staying at this Holiday Inn. We had no issues at all and the room was clean and comfortable. It is also nice that there are so many restaurants so close to the hotel. Literally 1-2 minute away via walking.
