5/5 Excellent

I have stayed at the Apartohotel Don Francisco many times on visits to San Jose. The location is fantastic, in a beautiful neighbourhood, and close to many stores and restaurants. The rooms are huge, and have a kitchen, which is great if you don't feel like eating out. It is much more like a private apartment than a hotel, at an affordable price. Automercado is located close by, for all of you grocery needs. It is quiet and comfortable, and the staff are fantastic and friendly. I would highly reccomend.

The directions were confusing and did not send me to the right area. I like that there is a front parking area for easy check-in as well as a gated back parking lot area for overnight parking. There are food options close by if you have a car, not really within walking distance. There was a pamphlet in the room with food delivery service options. The rooms are clean and I like that there is a kitchenette available in the room. The showers were a little weird with the change from extremely hot water to ice cold water while in use. I would stay here again.

Great location. Very close to Multiplaza and Hospital Cima. Place is a little old, bathroom had a stink to it and place was a little run down. But it was large in size and the front desk man was very helpful
