The rooms large and comfortable, and the hotel is gorgeous. My husband stayed here on our last night of our honeymoon in Costa Rica. We ended up spending a lot of time in the hotel bar because there isn't a great deal to do in San Jose, but we had fun watching soccer and listening to live music! It was... More

We stayed at Hotel Fleur de Lys for 2 nights as a short stop before leaving for Arenal. Overall, I have nothing to say against the Hotel itself. We had a free upgrade for the jacuzzi room. It was really clean smelled good. The staff was nice, helpful and the food was good. Restaurant are expensive in San Jose and... More

I love hotels with character, and this hotel definitely has it. The hotel is located in one (or several?) authentic San Jose houses and is well-decorated; my friends who visited San Jose before me liked the house and took pictures of it - we discovered it while watching their pictures. The rooms are clean and very pleasant and cozy. My... More

This little gem is located near to the theatres in San Jose, very close to the centre of town. It is right by the bus station for Turrialba, and alongside the railway track. when you arrive, they put a lovely cocktail in your hand, and then you get a room in the wood-panelled warren of the old buildings that make...

Stayed here for a night. The location was great for a wander around San Jose central. The breakfest was fantastic which is great if you have a long day of wandering or continuing on to somewhere else. I also loved the patio and bar, its very comfortable and relaxing.

Nice historic building, friendly bilingual staff. Watch when booking, I used booking.com and when I checked into the hotel there was an up-charged for an additional guest for the same room.
