My lovely lady and I will be arriving in San Jose during the first week of July for a year (or more) in Costa Rica. Can you recommend any reasonably priced, but good (i.e. safe, reasonable quality, internet connectivity, etc) hotels in San Jose?

We're going to have quite a bit of stuff naturally, so we definitely would like to arrange a shuttle to pick us up from the airport. We might be there a night or we might be there 2 weeks...What do you think?

When I was preparing to fly out of Costa Rica recently (where I was taking an immersion Spanish course), my early morning flight got cancelled because the pilot had a heart attack (before he got to the airport - he's doing fine now). The airline (Continental) put me up in the Best Western Irazu in San Jose for the day until the next flight (which wasn't until around 10:00 p.m.). It was a pretty decent place.

The Adventure Inn on the east side of San Jose looks pretty good for your purposes. It has lots of tours leaving from there and is operated by a Canadian. They also have a shuttle from the airport. We will be staying there for 2 weeks in January and have looked at several other hotels.

Don Carlos hotel in Barrio Amon in San Jose is really nice. My Mom and I stayed there for a few nights when she came to visit. The hotel is an old coffe baron's house and is family owned. Excellent service and there is a restaurant that serves pretty good food. Breakfast included if I remember. It's located in a historic district on the eastside of San Jose and has airport pickup. You can also book tours through them that leave from a hotel a block away. It's also close to the bus stop for buses to San Pedro, Cartago, Tres Rios, Zapote and so forth.

The best western irazu (not in irazu, but 5 miles from the airport) is fantastic. Great bar, good location, very helpful staff.
