Location is the only good thing about the hotel

We stayed at this hotel for a total of 3 nights at the start and end of our tour, staying in 2 different rooms, and this was the worst out of all the hotels we stayed in.

Voyages Jules Verne have used the Fleur de Lys on their Costa Rica tour for a while now but are moving to another hotel from April, which implies that we arent the only people who haven't enjoyed staying there.

The location is a mixed blessing - it is certainly very close to the centre of San Jose but even closer to a local railway line which has very loud trains on it from 5am during the week. Even with earplugs it was hard to block out the noise of the train horns, resulting in some poor nights of sleep.

The outside of the building is covered in pink corrugated plastic, which isn't particularly attractive but the inside of the hotel has more character.

Unfortunately, when it comes to the rooms character does not equal comfort and both of the rooms we stayed in were dark and cramped and needed refurbishing.

Breakfast was basic but adequate and we certainly didn't see any of the muffins and pastries described by other reviewers when we were there!

Most of the staff were pleasant and helpful though and the free internet access was very useful.

There are quite a few restaurants/cafes nearby and turn right out of the hotel and then right at the next corner and you will come to Cafe Urbano (good for cheap snacks) and Nuestra Tierra (nice food but rather expensive).

All in all, the location is the best thing about this hotel but if we ever go back to San Jose then I think its unlikely that would be enough to encourage us to stay there again.
