This hotel is listed a 3 1/2 stars. It might have been 20 years ago. The unit we rented was worn out. It had not been updated for many years;e the floors were worn out, the shower/bath had sections of the coating missing, the bathroom taps had been used so much that the chrome was worn off. The furniture was '80s style. As others have stated, people moving chairs in the unit above could be heard clearly. It's old. It is at most a 2 star hotel. The front desk people were very friendly and check in was easy. The guard at the gate didn't have us on any list, and was confused, but was typically friendly as Costa Rica. The unit is very spacious, and clearly used to be an apartment building. The storage area with shelves was immense. Parking was secure and convenient. Access was a little challenging during rush hours.
