Hotel Santo Tomas

Why We Love This Hotel

  • A former coffee plantation house, with traditional Victorian style
  • Provides a more local vibe, a few blocks away from main touristy areas, though some say it's a little too gritty
  • An interior courtyard has a pool and Jacuzzi, and there's free daily breakfast
  • Pleasant and helpful staff


Hotel Santo Tomas used to be a coffee plantation house, and it keeps a lot of its original charm and colorful tilework -- you feel like you are staying in a house more than a hotel. The rooms are simply furnished with Victorian-style items to match the architecture.

Within a pleasant and quiet central courtyard sits a pool and an elevated hot tub, which are connected by a waterslide. Next to the pool are a decent-sized gym and a casual restaurant, El Oasis. The cuisine is international with an emphasis on traditional Costa Rican cuisine, and is highly recommended by locals and past guests. Breakfast is free with your stay.

Hotel Santo Tomas is a seven-minute walk from the center of San Jose, where there is a pedestrian mall with shops, restaurants and fast food. It's a five-minute walk to museums, local attractions and Morazon Park, one of several small parks throughout the city
