We stayed at the Hotel because of a class reunion I was attending. Hotel was picked by a fellow Costa Rican classmate. My wife and I think that it was a great choice. Nice, clean and superb attention. I would definitely book it again. Great location too.

We were suppose to stay two different nights as we passed through San Jose. The first night was great, room clean, staff cordial and food at the restaurant both dinner and breakfast were great! The second night which was at the end of our trip, we arrived to find out there had been a water problem on one of the floors and we had no room. However the hotel had already booked us a room at a nearby hotel, paid the difference in price and drove us to the new hotel. Very impressed! Will definetely s... Read more

We stayed 5 nights at the Parque del Lago and were lucky to get an upgrade to a superior room looking towards the car park and Paseo Colon. The room was spacious, with an extra sitting room with couch, well appointed, very comfortable beds and high-quality linen. Everything worked well, including wi-fi, A/C; shower excellent. The staff especially the front desk were very helpful, we even borrowed the bikes with no hassle. There's an excellent iMac in the foyer. The restaurant looks nice but the ... Read more

Very clean and great prompt service. Higher end appearance. We had a couple of needs during our stay and staff immediately responded. Great value. Price included full breakfast. Rooms and bathroom are a bit small. Located near a park and the National Soccer stadium. Numerous fast food restaurants, bank and pharmacies nearby. We spent the day walking through the city to see the sites. The hotel shuttle to the airport was $30 dollars.

We loved this place, such a nice little hotel and nice people. A good central location. Spacious, clean rooms with good amenities provided. We based ourselves here either side of flying out of San Jose and it was good for that. Free breakfast and happy hour at night!

The front desk and all other staff were friendly, helpful and engaging. The hotel is in a downtown location with easy access to venues in that area. The room was clean, well appointed with a great shower/tub combo. Decor sort of modern. The view from our room was limited to the buildings across the street.

I was very impressed with Parque del Lago Hotel. Its location off Paseo Colon Boulevard (the main drag in San Jose) is excellently situated. The hotel is modern and could not have been cleaner. 5-Star customer service. The restaurant was extremely attractive for this wary traveler and his family: great menu and reasonably priced! I felt safe and comfortable, as did my family. As a high-level American executive, I whole heartedly recommend Parque del Lago Boutique Hotel.

This place is very nice located in The Sabana Parque area which is about three miles to the downtown - promenade - shopping. The room was a bit small and had no refrigerator; one girl at the front desk offered to change the room but did not tell me if there would be an upcharge. I decided to keep the room which was very clean and the maids were VERY good and concerned that I was getting good service. The bathroom was state of the arts but rather small.

1. The rooms they say are available never are, twice this has happened. small details that when you're in a hurry in the city make a huge difference, that's why there's an option to pick the room type when booking. That's why it properly works for business men passing by a city. Saving time saves money. Not that this hotel would know about that. 2. A $100 blockage for a $14 meal. Over 48 hours pass and they seem not to worry much about returning funds that do not belong to the hotel. As a payin... Read more

I will say the location is clutch if needed to go to and from airport, but besides that a disgrace for a "tripadvisor award". The outside is very clean and business like. The front entrance looks like a small holiday inn that needs some updating. The front desk staff seemed as if we were bothering them when checking inn. The rooms were disgusting. They smelt of mold, toilet was not cleaned, shower was broken, and bed was extremely uncomfortable. The only reason we booked this hotel was bas... Read more

I stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend when we first arrived in Costa Rica. It's the perfect hotel to stay in to explore the city. It's situated near the Parque Sabana and the national stadium and is a 20 minute walk to all the main attractions. Staff are really helpful and the robes and slippers provided make the hotel a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of San Jose. The only downside is the room can be a bit noisy as its facing the main road. However, I was so jet lagged I slept th... Read more

Stayed for five nights and the staff was always attentive and accommodating. The traditional Costa Rican buffet-attled breakfast is absolutely delicious, the rooms are clean and modern, and the hotel is in close proximity to the city's major attractions. The property's small size allows personalized service so you'll feel like you're at a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel. Definitely happy with our choice and would stay again!

After flying in to Costa Rica at the crack of dawn, I was more interested in relaxing than hitting the town. Then it started raining like crazy. I was so glad I had such a comfortable room to just chill out in. The lobby has little cookies, coffee, and lemon water. The staff is super friendly and it was fun chatting with them as I enjoyed my complimentary welcome drink in the bar. For me, it was great to have a nice quiet hotel room I could stay in and be lazy and rest up for a week in the jungl... Read more

We stayed here the last night of our Costa Rica in two-week vacation. It is conveniently located in the vicinity of the airport while still giving us the View of being in downtown San Jose. The hotel was clean comfortable and the staff was very helpful. We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant which was what we found to best meal we had all trip. The breakfast offered the next morning was equally satisfying. I would recommend this hotel for anyone needing a nice place to stay .

I want to first start by saying our stay here got better as each day passed. During check in we felt the staff was a bit rude but we thought possibly it was just us. We are laid back people (hippies) and believe this hotel is little more upscale so we felt at times we may not have been their typical guests. The hospitality staff (ladies taking care of the rooms) were the friendliest, we were asked what room we were in every morning during breakfast (were there 5 days), and didn't feel as welc...

The room was clean and quite in the 3 rd floor. The breakfast comes as a buffet with all you need to have a good start into the day. The hotel itself looks not very modern (interior or the fancy elevator). The staff of the breakfast restaurant was friendly and responsive while some of the front desk people acted pretty cool and professional. Not very personal. We are not sure whether this place can be recommended as only the price of almost 80 USD per night was outstanding.

We stayed at this hotel upon landing in San Jose because we did not want to get on the road right after arriving. It's a very nice, clean and well sized boutique hotel. The staff at the front desk were super helpful when asked for dinner recommendations and they helped us set up our sim card (as we did not have near enough Spanish the figure that out). The buffet breakfast (included in the price) was delicious and offered great selection. We would definitely come back here.
