It looks like the hotel was upgraded to attract the tourists in Costa Rica. Everyone, from the reception, restaurant, room service and the bell boys were friendly and spoke some form of English. I gave a 4 star for lack of great bathrooms. They should have been upgraded as well. Enjoyed the stay at the Crown Plaza. Don't miss the... More

The hotel arranged a pick up from the Airport, that was a great start of my trip. The staff was wonderfull, they all spoke english very well and were willing to help. The room was nice and big, the only thing I can give as feedback is that I would recommend to update the bathroom, it is a bit outdated.... More

The hotel is on the outskirts of San Jose. The hotel is located on a very busy street. Make sure you get a room towards the back of the hotel. The staff was extremely professional and kind. The staff goes out of their way to make sure all your needs are met. Good value. Highly recommended.

Friendly staff, good breakfast, clean and spacious rooms, the hotel is outdated and needs major renovation. It has a huge fitness club and two pools, which feel worn out. Nevertheless a warm friendly place to stay.

This is an absolute terrible hotel. I really have no words... the fact that it's a crowne plaza is a shame. First, the hotel is in a terrible area of the city, walking to anything is a hazard since you have to cross this large intersection with no pedestrian signal... and Costa Rica isn't exactly pedestrian friendly. Second, the hotel... More

Great breakfast buffet with a wide variety of fresh fruits. Food choices include a balanced selection for those observing a vegetarian diet. Meals are at the right temperature. Staff is friendly, attentive and make every effort to accommodate client requests. Cost is very reasonable.

I only stayed one night but unfortunately I wouldn't be returning. The hotel itself isn't bad but for the price, (over £100 a night) it was not worth it . It's an old building and the room had a musty smell to it and broken, old fashioned windows. The bathroom need renovating also, as the shower flooded the bathroom. On... More

We always stay here the first night and the last night of our stays in CR. Good location (near Mas x Menos and Rostipollos) and comfy rooms at good value. Do not miss the restaurant here both for breakfast and dinner. Pablo and one other server (I forget his name; sorry) were fantastic. Casino brings in a bit of a... More

Old-fashion hotel located in a good location. The building is quite dark and the rooms don't have enough light which means you must turn the lights on very early. Bathrooms need an urgent improvement since they are not in shape for a 5* hotel. Fitness center is shared with a private club, it is very complete. Food menu looked bored... More

I stayed here for 10 nights in a King Suite. This hotel is very nice. The staff is very friendly and most speak English. There is a nice lounge on the first floor and also a very nice pool area. The food is great and reasonably priced. A casino is on property for those that like to try their luck.... More
