Where to stay in San Jose

You'll find the majority of San Jose's accommodations between Parque Metropolitano La Sabana and the botanical gardens. This area offers luxury chain hotels in the west, simpler guesthouses in the older section of town in the east, and budget-friendly hostels located on side streets, just off from the primary commercial thoroughfares. Many hotels have sprung up close to the airport, located northwest of the city.
