We got a double room in this hotel for $65 a night. It was clean, nicely sized, and the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They also offer a tour desk which can arrange any number of things for you.
As it was humid, but not particularly hot, in San Jose, it was fine that this hotel does not offer air-conditioning (many don't). They have two free Internet computers available for guest use and include a "breakfast" with the room (this being a pastry and coffee/juice).
The location is good. You can walk into town, but the hotel spot is quiet and secure-feeling.

We stayed four seperate nights and had three different rooms. All were on the "ground" floor and very clean. No. 6 tended to be a bit noisy since it the door was in the court yard area and the bathroom jutted up against the back of the kitchen. It was, however, large and clean.
A continental breakfast is served outside in the courtyard area beginning at 7 a.m. It's a self serve type with different breads daily, cereal, toast, fruit and of course, coffee. If you would like a hot meal, you must request one. It may be a breezy in the morning but the chairs and tables won't blow away. They're so heavy it's difficult to slide the chair out!
The Pre-Columbian Lounge serves good lunches and dinners until 9 p.m.
We used the laundry service and also took advantage of the free e-mail to keep in touch with friends and family at home. There are two computers, one on the main level and the second on the second floor.
Free calls within Costa Rica can be made from the reception area or you room.
An in-house tour company is available and can arrange anything you want to do during your stay.
There is a nice, although pricy, gift shop in the lobby. If you have a chance to stroll over to the central business district, you'll find other less expensive shops with Costa Rican souvenirs along the way. You'll also run into some pricy galleries.
Slip your extra change in the "maids tips" slot to the left, past the mail box and just before you reach the door to the street. It's easy to miss but they certainly deserve a tip.
