Hotel seemed to be under new management and is doing its best to fix itself up. Having arranged through them, we chatted with an owner & an employee about what ended up a sketchy airport taxi pickup. Instead of our names on a sign, a random/unprofessional appearing man showed me my name on a cell text instructing us to wait...

This was a nice hotel in the centre of town, walking distance to most of the interesting areas. The staff were great at offering advice, and the afternoon coffee and breakfast were both tasty.

We have stayed a few days in this hotel betweem our trips around Costa Rica. You often need to come back to San Jose to go somewhere else. We have even left our lugage in the hotel for some days without any trouble. This is very good value compared to some other hotel we have been in Costa Rica.

I booked this nice little oasis twice while in CR. Both times I found the staff to be kind, nurturing and very welcoming. As my first experience in Costa Rica I am glad I stayed here, Nice little garden and breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is very well located, the staff is helpful and speak English, a real plus since I am an ugle American...

We stayed at the Kekoldi in 2007 and found it comfortable and in a safe area (Barrio Amon), so it was easy to choose our hotel when we returned this summer. Again, we weren't disappointed. The rooms are well furnished, have good beds, fan, closet, fridge and safe (if you need them). Bathrooms are fine, showers hot. Breakfast is provided...

We flew into San Jose late in the afternoon on a fly-drive/hotel voucher package and stayed here overnight before heading off before 7am the next morning. We were provided with a large double bedroom overlooking the small garden and the make-shift bar (nb. there is no restaurant). It was very basic but could not be faulted on size and cleanliness...
