The place IS hard to find ... look for the little flags. We booked and confirmed our stay here via the internet. Our stay was to include breakfast. When we arrived at the Casa Aura, we were told that because we had not confirmed, we could not have breakfast WHAT?. But, we HAD confirmed & had the email proof. We... More

I stayed here for two nights last month and enjoyed my stay. I got crazy lost on my way there (none of the cabbies seemed to know where it was, eventually had to call the hotel for directions there), so make sure to look for the large Farmer's Market -- it's just a block north of that. I booked a... More

The rooms were okay, the shower could have more warm water, the bed was okay. Everything was clean and the girls were welcoming though not the most service minded I've met on my trip. The breakfast was okay, not the best. I've stayed at cheaper, better B&B's than this.

I arrived in cartago on a stopover to another town. Not feeling like traveling anymore I searched tripadvisor for a place to stay. This place is super convienent, clean, and safe. Cartago is a nice little town to stop for a night. There's a supermarket really close and cheap food near by. The place also has free Internet and wifi!

Very friendly and nice B&B located quite down-town on the road to Irazu. Friendly staff and nice rooms. Decoration with a personal touch. Garden and Terrace for guests use. Perfect for a visit of Volcano Irazu. Fogret about the street name ! Watch out for the ICE. If you ask somebody always mention the ICE which is across the street.... More
