          It was a great hotel with excellent staff. Not far from airport in Alleulaja

          • Average rating
        • Group of friends

          My friend and I had excellent service from Michael and Heiner the bartenders. The food and the accommodations were very good.

          The staff overall was not very friendly. When we said hello no one responded. When we went to the breakfast buffet no one talked to us or helped us. Your staff needs to be more friendly and provide a feeling that makes people feel welcome.

          in the weekend nights a little bit noisy because of a disco nearby

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          San Jose is a noisy city and when just traveling through, as we were, all we want is a clean, quiet room and decent dining facilities - this hotel is perfect. However for value for money too it can't be beat. The included breakfast was top rate. Monitored parking is also provided in the cost.

          Well decorated and rooms with good area

          I believe it is a litle overpriced

        • Group of friends

          My friends and I were all pretty impressed by this hotel. Very savvy design and clean. The staff tried to be very helpful, but seemed overwhelmed and slipped on booking our shuttle to the airport in the morning saying that we did not 'call back to confirm'. The same person who helped us when checking in happened to be the same person who helped us that morning and somewhat redeemed himself by immediately booking another shuttle, however I was disappointed to find out this would be at an extra cost to us.

          This is not really a complaint or any reason to not stay at the Tryp San Jose, Sabana but just a caution warning to be careful when going out at night. I have truly been in worse areas, but the hotel is located in the heart of the city.

          Western hotel with a great dinner menu, especially the tuna tartare.

          Location was horrible. There was nothing to see or do around the hotel. Breakfast was not nearly as good as dinner. You could hear all of your neighbors. It made it very difficult to sleep.

          I loved every aspect of this hotel: it's clean, beautiful, good breakfast included, people are nice (and speak English), there is an exercise room, big and comfortable bed, parking in the basement and 10 minutes walk from downtown San Jose. And all that for a price so reasonable it's almost unbelievable, especially after travelling in so many parts and hotels of the country which offered far less quality for a higher price most of the time...

          Very comfortable, friendly staff, nice breakfast, parking included, close to the airport

          A little harder to find

          Beautiful hotel! Great to be close enough to go for a run in La Sabana! Thanks for a wonderful visit!

          Hotel is very modern, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, feature big flat screen TVs, bedding and towels are of high quality. Continental breakfast was included in the rate, service and food were exceptional. Hotel has its own airport shuttle service.

          The location is a bit too far from the center of the city and walking around the hotel at night is probably not recommended.

          We liked the hotel! Really nice rooms, excellent breakfast, great service.

          The location isn't fantastic - it's neither in the city center or near the airport. The toilet wasn't working very well.

          Super friendly staff. New modern rooms with very comfortable beds. We've stayed only one night, but I've had the best sleep ever. Breakfast was nice and gret service. I would stay there again!

          Friendly, knowledgeable staff, well-kept building by USA/Canadian standards, good knowledge of English, clean rooms, excellent security, excellent breakfast (included). A fabulous stay at a good price.

          Location is in San Jose, so some issues with security outside hotel after dark.
