Our favorite of the capital's many apartotels—part apartment house, part hotel—sits on a quiet, out-of-the-way street north of the La Sabana park. Bright, cheery suites have equipped kitchens and one or two bedrooms. Rates include a big buffet breakfast. Cristina has a devoted return clientele made up primarily of business travelers and medical tourists, Costa Rica's hot new tourism segment. The hotel offers periodic Internet promotions.
