    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was quite good Room was spacious & the shower was good It is about 10 mins walk from San Jose city centre (Avenida/Calle Central)

    Very competitive price. Rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable. Tv had loads of international channels. Airport pickup was not cheap at 35 usd, but they organsied it for me and I was glad that someone met me upon arrival. Staff is friendly. Breakfast is included, if not much. Wifi worked, but only in the lobby.

    Seems to be a bit out of town, not sue, if you can walk to the tourist attractions. I just used hotel as stopover.

    Close to downtown, but there are many better options for less

    Rooms are humid most of the rooms have muddy corner view Breakfast is a fake - 2 slices of bread with rice and artificial juice, bar is managed by reception so it is really bad Glass of wine $5 Laundry prices $5 a shirt You can watch a beer in a refrigerator but they won't sell it to you in the evening due to a strange hotel policy There is no internet in most of the rooms, so you will probably see people in the lobby I wanted to stay for 1 more night just not to move my luggage but they told me that the hotel was fully booked. However, there were lots of vacant rooms in Booked.net website so there was an obvious discrepancy

    I was please to stay at cocoon hotel one good thing was the elevator which vary convenient if your on 3-4 floor the breadfast was nothing to brag about,but it came with the price of the room.

    The only bad thing if your thirsty for bottle water be prepared to pay $4.00 or 2 thousand colones for 1 litre of water, what a shame to sell at that price.

    Ok hotel for the price. Normal standard. Good breakfast. Two options to choose from. Central lokation. Near Caribe bus station.

    The hotel is qute close to the centre and the pedestrian streets, but in a very rough neighbourhood! Bums and garbage everywhere in the area.

    Very friendly atmosphere and clean rooms, Air conditioned, good food included breakfast Management tried their best!

    Mildew or mold in our room. Leaky faucet in bathroom that no one cared to log.same for the leaky toilet, water running all night, but not bad enough to complain, but again, no one seemed to care when I brought it up at check out.

    I liked the overal atmosphere of the hotel, the convenient location to the Gran Caribe bus terminal, the nice, spacious room.

    The wifi connection often dropped although I had one of the two rooms closest to the router. A restart of the router usually helped and there is one wired laptop available for guests in the lobby. The location in the red light district may be offputting to some, but I didn't feel less safe than in most parts of San José.

    Staff were extremely helpfull, airport shuttle was 30$ extra which is a good deal, since the hotel is about 25-45 mins away depending on traffic. The driver of the shuttle Jose is awesome! He picked us up at the car rental when we dropped our rental vehicle off. All the staff speak fluent english and can answer any question about Costa Rica! More of a budget friendly hotel but a warm welcome, would stay again.
