Hotel 1492 is a small family owned hotel in the heart of a great neighborhood, barrio escalante. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a great place to rest your head for a night.
The property could use a little makeover to freshen it up. Small independent places are struggling so We need to support them more.
This is a small hotel (about 10 rooms) but this is what makes it unique. The staff at the hotel are extremely helpful and polite. The hotel is also closely located to many restaurants and bars. We stayed at the hotel during the Corona virus lock down, but the hotel was always appropriately staffed.
There is a railway line close by. All trains toot their horns as they pass through the town. This would not normally bother me, but because we were in the hotel more than wanted because of the corona virus lock down, this became extremely annoying!
The location was further out of town than I expected and the area was not great.
This hotel was everything we needed. Small hotel room, but just the space we needed for our 3 nights visit in San Jose. The staff only spoke Spanish, but did their best to help us out and we could communicate at the end and they were very helpful and kind. Looks just like the pictures! The neighbourhood was amazing. From what we could understand it’s a safe and hip area, and the restaurants and cafes is never ending. Every single place we went to for food or drinks was top notch. The area has something for everyone, and there’s a restaurant on every corner! Especially Franco’s for a coffe in their back garden or Pandeli for a fresh breakfast. It’s only a 10 minute walk into the old town of San Jose, and 5 minutes away from Parc Nacional that also has some restaurants around it! You won’t be disappointed with this hotel!
Great value for money. Second time staying here for me. Bars and restaurants 10 minutes up the road. Safe area
