Costa Rica Hotels: 495 reviews and 694 photos

Very clean, safe, gated hotel, with doorman to greet you, let you in. Breakfast included. Staff are very accommodating, friendly. Just off the main avenue in down town San Jose. Walk a few blocks to the national theatre, the bus station, centeral market. Everything is so close. I have stayed there 4 times. The price has been $50.00 for two and $35.00 for one (us funds). I stayed in a hotel just blocks away that cost $100.00 a night (us funds), was not all that much better, for the money.

Hotel Doral is 300 meters west of the centeral park. At 4th. ave. and 8th. st.

Unique Qualities: Dining room on top of the hotel has a great view of the small, busy streets below, and some of the sky line and hills. Rooms are very clean and quiet. Food is great. Hotel Doral is a great deal for the money, in the hub of the city.
