Radisson San Jose

Central Valley & Mountains

Rating: Mid-range    

Radisson San Jose overview

The Radisson San Jose has a great central location in the historic district of the city. It is an ideal base for exploring some of the popular attractions such as the National Theatre and the Golden Museum, both of which are within walking distance. The hotel also offers easy access for shopping, exploring and dining out in the many local restaurants found in the vicinity.

However, if you don't want to venture far the hotel has excellent facilities to offer its guests. There are two restaurants each serving a cross-section of local dishes and international cuisine. The main restaurant has views over the pool and the Cafe Tropical has a more informal setting and looks out onto the hotel gardens. Bar Jobo offers a lively atmosphere where you can enjoy a drink and listen to live music. There is also an on-site fitness centre, a sauna and a delightful outdoor swimming pool, perfect for blowing away the cobwebs after a long-haul flight.

The rooms at the Radisson are comfortable and stylish. The decor is a mixture of carved wooden furniture and stone obtained from the quarries of Ecuador, the colour palette is warm and inviting. Each room has complimentary WiFi, TV, hairdryer, minibar and of course a coffee machine with delicious fresh Costa Rican coffee.

Mr. Christopher Ellsum (20/04/2019)

"We were extremely tired from the flights when we arrived so wre looking forward to have a good night's sleep before starting our holiday adventure properly the next morning. However that was not to be the case. The air conditioning was extremely noisy and with it switched off the room was far to warm. The fridge kept making loud rumbling noisies through the night but to cap it all the road noise all night long was very frustrating. On a more positive note, the staff were very nice as was the breakfast."

Mr. Duncan Harriss
"A bit souless and the journey from the airport took 90 minutes. If we went again we would go into the country"
Mrs. Judith Delap
"Adequate to our needs but a bit big and not walking distance from the centre of SAN Jose which meant we had to use taxis."
Mr. Neil Henson
"A functional hotel."
Mrs Claire Thomas
"A clean functional hotel and served the purpose of a comfortable bed to sleep in following a long flight and to get ready for our trip. We know that we were placed there as it was the only place we could be collected from for our rafting trip. There was nothing wrong with the hotel it just doesn’t compare to some of the other outstanding hotels we stayed in."
