Fodor's Expert Review City Express San José Costa Rica

Autopista General Cañas, San Antonio, Alajuela, Costa Rica

This comfy Mexican chain with minimalist decor has an outlet in Costa Rica and a stay here puts you just a few miles from Juan Santamaría airport. Think of it as a Latin American counterpart to Holiday Inn Express. The predominant clientele are business travelers on a moderate budget, but all are welcome, of course. Rooms consist of uniformly tan woods and tiles with splashes of color in the spreads and wall hangings, and floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of light. All rooms contain a desk and work area. Rates include an ample breakfast buffet.

PROS

  • bargain rates for what is offered
  • proximity to airport
  • ample breakfast buffet

CONS

  • sameness of a chain hotel
  • tricky road access to get here off highway
  • rooms are pleasant but basic
