This is a great apartment!
This apartment is very modern with two big Samsung TVs and an ice maker! The building is secure and very quiet. The bed is really comfortable, good water pressure, very roomy. No complaints. There is a hotel adjoining the building where you can get breakfast or a drink, so you don’t feel marooned after 10:00. (BTW, use the Radisson Park Inn to navigate as using the building address is troublesome) Too notch facility and Elena was great to work with, especially when I ended up being an hour and a half late to pick up the key. Thanks!
Lovely apartment in the city
Elena was a wonderful host - she was responsive and helpful throughout booking and our stay. She had Marco meet us upon on our arrival to walk us through the property. The property had everything we needed for our stay in the city, and it was just a short cab ride to the cultural areas and city market. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a few days of ‘city life’ amongst the beautiful water falls and rain forests!
Totally Satisfied in San Jose
Very nice, modern, 1 bedroom apartment with all you need for a great stay.
The bed was super comfortable, the living room , kitchen, bathroom, perfectly setup and super clean. Being swimmers, really liked the full length lap pool to get in our km. swims each day. Get the chance recommend the Aqui Es, Argentian Restaurant and the Machu Picchu, Peruvian Restaurant in the local area. Also the Central Market is within an easy 15 minute walk for a true local, Costa Rican shopping experience. Elena, was fantastic to work with, super easy to communicate with and is able to set up transport to and from the airport and valuable time saving information on the local area. Highly recommend Elena’s apartment for a great, safe, comfortable stay in San Jose.
Very nice accomidation. We are very happy and highly recommend this home away from home! Thanks Elena!
Perfect Location, Amazing Host, Excellent Home
Elena was an outstanding host - she was so friendly and easy to communicate with from start to finish.
She was able to arrange transportation to and from the airport for me. Recommend Resturants and local attractions, answer many general questions. She always made me feel important.
The apartment location was perfect with a door man, underground parking, gym, pool and walking distance to many little grocery stores.
The apartment had everything you need from: WiFi, Apple TV, new appliances, great bed with amazing sheets, soft towels and air conditioning.
I visit Costa Rica often and will be sure to make her home my new “home away from home”.
You will not be disappointed staying here - I HIGHLY recommend Elena and her home.
Staying at hotel is better
I don’t know from where I start , the apartment is new and in a nice area but me personally I hate when someone telling me shut off the light or shut off the A/C before you leave she text me .... she talk to me over the phone and she sent me an email wow she care but it’s too much I’m paying more than hotel for her apartment I don’t need no one to tell me what to do in my apartment for the 4 days we spent there second thing there is only 2 towels only for 4 days amazing love Jr we are taking shower one time only and I’m there not to clean I want to have fun even before I leave I clean all the apartment gave it to her so clean !!!!!! Third thing you give 5 stars if you relax at the BED the most important in any trip but the bed in this apartment is the worst bed I ever slept on you will go and you will see for that in the four days we stay there we rent 2night hotel because we don’t wanna go back to the apartment and my back still hurting until now from last night sleep, other than that she was nice and she call me and text me and email me to leave the keys on the table buefore I leave, most important is the bed just be aware!!!!!!!!!
I would like to address, clarify and correct your comments that are inaccurate and misleading.
When guest arrive I send a template message with information from WiFi passwords to a sentence that asks to please turn off the air conditioner when you leave. I was simply trying to give you important information and the rules of my home.
You mention only two towels: there are two towels hanging in the bathroom and another 2 towels in the closet in the bedroom. You must have seen them when lying on the bed because it is a walk in closet without a door and they are clearly at eye level in plain sight. In addition, they were shown to you by Daniel when he showed you around the home.
I have only received positive feedback regarding the bed and the bedroom from all of my past guest.
I chose not to review you out of respect: we got off on the wrong foot when I agreed to let you check in well before the normal time and you began to berate the security doorman because the gentleman coming in the elevator with the key was not fast enough.The behavior continued with the person who gave you the key.
When the cleaning team arrived, after your departure, they had to put furniture back where it started as you moved furniture from room to room. The towels, mentioned above, were stained too,
I followed up with you often because I take great pride in providing exceptional service and an apartment I am proud of. You never once mentioned any dissatisfaction.
Clear communication is the key to success and I encourage you to ask your next host if you have any issues - you never know, there may be a quick, easy and possible solution. I communicated with you the last two days of your stay and you never once mentioned that you left and went to a hotel. I have a feeling you just added that out of spite.
As you can see from all of the other reviews you are the Outlier from the normal exceptional experience had by others.
100 Meters from a fresh fruit market - on the first floor there is a small shop for the basics. Wifi - Flat Screen TV - Washer Dryer - Air Conditioning We would be happy to answer any questions as I grew up in San Jose and have infinite local knowledge.
