The Best Western here is quite pleasant. The pool area is gorgeous, beautifully landscaped with rocks and palm trees. There are a number of places to eat all around this area, as well as some shopping (souvenir shop in the lobby) and museums.

We stayed for one night as we were flying out of Costa Rica. The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. Our room was quiet. It was hard to get the airconditioning to the right temperature as there is no thermostat. And the airport shuttle was not running during the day when we needed it.

The rooms are old but the hotel is nice. The pool area is unique (20m pool) and the garden is well maintained. The FO staff was helpful and the 24/24 breakfast is an excellent idea. The casino is also great. If the hotel renovates their rooms - it will probably be one of the best in town. Quality / Price - good match.

This is a very nice hotel for anyone looking for a place to stay in San Jose for a reasonable price. We were there for 6 days and enjoyed our stay. Very nice rooms, excellent service with two restaurants to choose from. Well located and close to most tourist attractions. Highly recommended.

The hotel is very clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Recommend this hotel. The hot tub was the best just make sure you know what time they put the heater on. Pool is not heated and was too cold for us to go in and enjoy. The landscaping was impeccable as the workers worked very hard in keeping it maintained. They too were very friendly. The housekeepers were very prompt and kept the rooms clean and made up when you returned. They have a recliner in the room w... Read more

This was a fabulous hotel! It is especially perfect for families. My 4 boys enjoyed the pool, hot tub and basketball court. There was a workout center and a laundry facility. The Denny's next door was the best Denny's I've ever been to! There was a grocery store next door that had all the great Costa Rican coffee. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Their is a sense that check-in is just robotic. I am close to 70 years old and they give me a room at the end of building's long corridor, knowing I am a senior?? Then upon arriving to my room, pulling the luggage behind me, irritated and angry...wondering why the front desk would not know better, so I have to go back, ask for a change. Sure, they were amiable about the change, and did so.....but then I had to go back, get the luggage and change rooms. Then my nephew, who paid a higher co... Read more

Excellent hotel in San Jose Costa Rica. The rooms are amazing. We enjoyed the pool and the infinity spa. Everybody was very nice. This was our third visit and I enjoy more every time. They have a bar Sangria and I suggest you have your breakfast there, because Denny's can take forever. The hotel allows you to have breakfast at Denny's or at Sangria. Be careful Sangria opens at 7 in the morning. They have wifi in the lobby. There are restaurants close by.

Clean, good security, options for breakfast (traditional at Sangria Cafe or American at Denny's.) Tourist options available at front desk. Lots of eating places around and quick shopping stops. I found the amenities good and the shower was great!

I stayed here a few weeks ago and it was great, the hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful, always with a smile on their faces. The rooms were nice, yet the only thing I would object is that Wifi was not good in the rooms. Overall thanks to the hotel staff for all you did for us!!!

I stayed here with a group of students on a community service trip. The hotel is clean and comfortable, the pool is very nice but the hot tub wasn't working and will probably be fixed on Costa Rica time (meaning someday not too near in the future!) We a te at the Rooster Bar and Grill across the street - good food. The neighborhood is kind of sketchy so we didn't walk around a lot, but there's a little supermarket very close where you can get anything you need. There's also a Denny's right at t... Read more

The rooms are very comfy and loved the the view towards the pool. Even during the hottest day you can just relax at the balcony and enjoy the view. The amenities were perfect and I am very glad that they have extended the list of choices for breakfast. Also there is a breakfast special menu to be ordered only though room service. Overall I had a pleasant experience and would recommend this hotel.

This hotel has internet and restaurants. It's an easy taxi ride from the airport and it was affordable. It's nothing to write home about but it serves it purpose. I landed, took a $23 taxi here, ate, slept and went on my way. I recommend this place.

I traveled to San Jose for a long weekend with two friends. I picked this property because of the great price that was offered as part of a vacation package on JetBlue. The pictures depicted a modest, well-kept resort. Upon arrival, this is exactly what we found: a more-than-modest, well-kept, smaller resort!! We were Very happy with the facility, and the extreme friendliness of the staff. Although the hotel is older, it is going through a very discrete renovation at present. I didn't even notic...

Our tour group stayed at this hotel the first and last nights of our tour. The first night we arrived very late at night after many hours of traveling and it was good to be able to grab a quick bite to eat at the attached Denny's restaurant. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. Ours looked onto the centre court, which was quite relaxing. On our last night of the tour, we took advantage of the laundry facilities and were able to wash and dry our clothes (very helpful after the beautiful hot... Read more

We stayed our final night here, the check in was smooth and we visited the casino. We soon discovered the perks the hotel offered was not up to par for a Best Western, it was clean and nicely decorated, every room had a pool view and the grounds were well maintained.

This hotel looks great on the outside and within the lobby but the rooms are old and dated. Our room smelled kindof musky when we opened the door but once the air conditioner was on, the smell went away. The beds are comfortable and the wifi in the rooms seemed strong. I wish there was a coffee maker in the room so I didn't have to get up, dress, and walk to the lobby. The bar and casino were very nice and the food was average.

As soon as we arrived the service was great and attentive. The pool view was very nice and it was easy to find our way around the hotel and restaurant area. The breakfast included was great and saved us money, everyone treated us great! The pool area was very nice. The airport transportation was free and the staff was friendly!

We only stayed one night between arriving from London and then heading on elsewhere in CR. The advertised shuttle is infrequent so call the hotel to check times. A $25 cab preferable to over an hours wait. Room and on site restaurant ok after a long flight. Breakfast being available before a 0600 pick up a bonus.

Overall this hotel is in a good location , secure there is always a staff member walking around the premises which gives you a sense of security . I will return to this hotel next year. One thing I will like to add is that the breakfast is included which is good however the menu is very limited for those with a voucher , but it was still ... Read more

This hotel is in a great location. Was very clean and comfortable. Casino on lower level was great also. The only complaint I had was being awaken at 6am by a marching band playing loudly in the courtyard for 30 minutes. Hotel should have alerted guests so to not be startled at that early hour. Otherwise the hotel is great.

If this facility is close to your area of action in San Jose, don't hesitate. Location is particularly relevant in San Jose, as traffic there is one of the worst in Latin America. I guess this is due to the very old street system they have there. Trust me on this one. Best Western Irazu is an old facility, but decently maintained. Nothing fancy, keep that in mind. No mini bar, not even the possibility to make charges to your room. It must been a success in the 80'. The gym sucks, the equipment... Read more

Nice hotel. Nice pool and outdoor hot tub. Decent gym. Don't eat at Denny's (overpriced and not worth it) but the sangria restaurant and the casino both have good food. The rooms are ok, not a fan of the carpet or the fact that there's no fridge in the room but overall room is clean

This hotel is very nice. The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent. The rooms are a bit small and smell old like dust and will give you an instant headache. The wifi is absolutely horrible if your room is on the far end of the hotel. I definitely recommend the hotel but if you plan to use wifi, get a room close to the lobby or you will not be happy.

I went here with my gf, the attention was good, the room had a TV, a bathtub, a little coffee maker and the bed was comfortable. The hotel has a swimming pool and a lot of restaurants nearby. Even that the experience was good, for a couple it's not really a great place, there are another ones a lot better, it's more like a business trip hotel.

Just left the hotel this morning. The public facilities such as restaurants, lobby area and swimming pool seems to look okay. But was big, a lot of space, couple of tables and even coffee station and an iron (for what?!). But where is the hot water in a shower?! This is very important thing for me. And even if you wait for a while the water will not get warmer. Plus strange smell in a room itself, everything seems to be very old. However staff is smiling, friendly and willing to help.
