This is a wonderful little hotel, just perfect for early departures or late arrivals from the airport. It's Persian flair reflects the style and grace of the owner and host, Henri. Artist, intellect, historian and philosopher, this kind innkeeper is at the heart of this hotel. Accommodations are simple, but well appointed and clean. I only wish we had stayed... More

For a few years now I have been stopping at "Henry's" every time I fly in and out of costa rica. He is the kindest man, an artisan, and has many good stories to tell. Every bit of the beautiful carpentry and decoration was done by hand. If you are lucky enough to eat one of the Persian dinners you... More

Casa Antigua is just a few minutes away from San Jose airport and a quick walk from Alajuela's most popular venues (the casino in particular). For that reason its location is very convenient. The whole place is decorated with taste and creativity. The backyard is inviting and very relaxing, plus you can enjoy the company of a dog, a cat... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms were small, but comfortable and nicely decorated. The complimentary breakfast included tons of tasty fresh fruit. The backyard area was amazing - tons of cool hand crafted tables/chairs, parrots, a swimming pool etc. But what really made this place awesome was the owner, Henry. He was extremely friendly and very helpful. If... More

My husband & I stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica. I looked at there website before I booked the room and I feel like they falsely represented the hotel. We planned to sit by the pool have a drink at the bar and eat at the restaurant. But none of that was possible because the pool was... More

The host/owner was very accommodating. He got us a room very quickly. We had everything we needed right when we asked for it. The courtyard area is beautiful! We were the only guests at the hotel that night as it was 2 days before Easter. We ate a lovely and delicious dinner at the hotel and had a wonderful long... More

It was the character in the picture that caught my eye, as well as the reasonable rates. After three nights of staying here, I can easily recommend this place as a landing or departing spot for those travelling to Costa Rica. Henry is among the best hosts and gave me a very warm welcome. As a hotelier of my own... More

Amazing food, amazing atmosphere. We were staying at a hotel across the street and thought this place looked interesting. We walked over, and what a great find! Excellent personalized service, interesting artwork and woodwork. Persian theme was quite intriguing. So different and unique. Don't miss this. We'll be back for sure!
