Hotel Santo Tomás Review

The front of this century-old former coffee-plantation house does butt up against the sidewalk on a busy street, but close the front door behind you and you'll find an oasis of quiet in the center of the city. On the fringe of Barrio Amón, the hotel has spacious rooms with wood or tile floors and lots of deep, varnished-wood furnishings. Some of the tiled bathrooms have skylights. A bright breakfast room adjoins an interior patio, and if you keep traveling back into the interior of the building, you'll find a small outdoor pool, a rarity in a hotel of this size in the capital. The especially friendly, helpful staff makes this a real find.
