apartotel La sabana review (san jose, costa rica)
If you are flying to Costa Rica, chances are you will have to fly to San Jose International Airport. Whether you are flying back out, or catching a bus to a different part of the country, you may want to stop over for the night and rest. I chose to spend the night at Aparthotel La Sabana, which was super convenient. I arrived late at night after two long flights and an even longer queue at customs. But the transfer to the hotel was super easy and convenient, even though it was already 10pm!
How to get to apartotel la sabana from san jose airport
As mentioned above, the transfer is super convenient. The hotel arranged my transfer prior to my trip. I simply gave them my flight information, and they arrange for a shuttle to drive me from the airport and back to the airport to catch my flight the morning after. The hotel is partnered with a shuttle company called Interbus. You simply walk out of customs, grab your bag and head to the Interbus counter. They will give you a sticker to put on your t-shirt, for the driver to find you outside. The drive to the hotel was about 20 minutes (we dropped other people off on the way).
This hotel is perfect if you are looking for a charming typical Costa Rican experience. There is a lovely swimming pool and lounging area.
I stayed in a double room (with two single beds). There was a bathroom with shower, a desk, and the beds we very comfortable. Room service is available until 8pm if you are hungry.
Breakfast is included, and served every morning from 6:30am by the swimming pool. The perfect scenery to enjoy some yummy fresh fruit and a cup of coffee! Breakfast is buffet style, you can help yourself to a wide variety of fruit, juices, costa rica dishes, pancakes, and you can order eggs aswell.
I really want to point out how lovely and welcoming the staff was. Everyone from the hotel just seemed so happy and friendly, it was the perfect start to my trip! 100% recommend!
