Hotel Alta is very nice and it was exactly the hotel we were looking for: a particular hotel, not too big and not banal as one of the large hotels USA-style. The architecture of the hotel is particular, the staff is polite and friendly both at the reception and at the restaurant.

A great hotel with spectacular views from all rooms over the central valley. Great restaurant. Complimentary great tasting coffee all day. Our room was large with a large covered balcony. There was a large odd shaped bathroom with a large walk in shower.

We stayed at Hotel Alta Las Palomas on the first night of our trip to Costa Rica. It's a first class hotel, very atmospheric with beautiful furniture and features. The room was excellent and very comfortable. The restaurant served very good food, with a wide choice of dishes. It's a shame we couldn't stay longer.

It has a fabulous view over the San Jose basin, and sunsets to match. The restaurant was great. The food was beautifully displayed on our plates, and tasted just as delicious. The server George is like a waiter of the past; attentive to our needs.

A great hotel with a splendid view over the city. We had a good room, with a balcony overlooking the city from the hillside location. Balcony was an excellent place to have a drink.

We had two wonderful stays at Hotel Alta las Palomas in February. It's a nice boutique hotel, tucked away from all the traffic and with a nice view of the valley. Easy access to the autopista. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a place to stay on the western side of San Jose.
