It was a central hotel, perfect for a 1 night stay
The room wasn’t ready at checking time
The staff at the reception was very helpful, Especially Neri
Excellent affordable and feels like you’re experiencing the real Costa Rica and the real San Jose. You might want to call ahead if you’re driving your own car to figure out how to approach the parking lot as there are one way streets.
Everything else was great
Parking was not easy to find. In fact the hotel itself was not well marked.
Located in the historical and lively heart of downtown San Jose, Costa Rica, right on Avenida Central, Costa Ricas most famous and visited pedestrian-boulevard and only 11 miles away from Juan Santamaria International Airport. Within walking distance of the Balmoral, you will find San Joses main art, cultural, financial, government and historical landmarks and institutions e.g. National and Melico Salazar Theaters, National, Gold and Jade Museums, the Metropolitan Cathedral, as well as some of citys best entertainment, shopping, and healthcare facilities.
