En el corazón de la capital
I just walked into this hotel by chance and after taking the room for the first night and making a tour around, I think it is a very good value for money. It’s in the heart of the city, and very close to eveything, especially the Mercado Central.
Hotel Nuevo Johnson (Facebook – Map)
Cost of the room for one person: 7000 ₡ (Colón*) which is about 14 $ per night.
Amenities: Private room with a double bed, TV, private bathroom, WiFi (not in all the hotel).
The only thing I forgot to ask is whether they have hot water 😀
In front of the hotel, a lot of people sell red peppers (chile [tchilé]), avocados, onions, tomatoes…
* The “Colón” is the Costa Rican currency. In the plural we say in Spanish 7000 colones [kolonés].
