Recent review (14/07/2009)

Jenell Weitz thinks…

"the service was helpful, they did our laundry for only 10 dollars per load. Also they allowed us to check in to our rooms even though we arrived very early, around 10am."

About Hotel Vesuvio

Personalized service is the key to this owner management Hotel. The management makes it a priority to give their guests the fullest attention to every detail.

Hotel Vesuvio, a traditional colonial house, is located in Barrio Otoya/Amon, one of the oldest districts in the historical city, surrounded by beautiful houses and buildings dating back to the colonial times of San Jose. Vesuvio is away from the noise and traffic of downtown, yet close enough to be able to walk the cultural and central business within 5 minutes. Also the international airport Juan Santamaría is just 20 minutes from the Hotel.
