Positive Reviews

A Good Value For The Money.

Budget-minded guests advise that the accommodations are basic, comfortable, clean, and a good value for the money. The property is tucked away in the very heart of the old town historical district and just a stone’s throw from the Picasso. We enjoyed our stay and the staff was great.

A Prime Location.

Guests note that the Residencia Universitaria San José is centrally located in old town, close to unique shops, fine restaurants, coffee houses, bars, lounges and nighttime entertainment. The straightforward venue worked out fine for a weekend stay. The price is right and guests comment that the service staff is cordial and helpful. The apartments include a kitchenette for the flexibility of self-catering.

Plain and Simple.

Guests note that the lodging is one of the best values available, noting that the rooms are simply furnished with the basic amenities one needs for a good night’s sleep without the high price tag. Wi-Fi is free and fast.

Negative Reviews

Damp and Dark.

Some guests have commented that the hallways of the venue are drafty and dark at night.

Rather Noisy.

Guests have commented that the lodging lacks soundproofing and that their sleep was disturbed by late night guests returning from a night of partying. Other guests have suggested that one should request a room on the backside of the property away from the street noise.
