beautiful views; impressive decor and design; warm and caring hosts. can't realistically walk to area sites but on the other hand, you wouldn't get the sweeping views of San Jose and the surrounding mountains if you could. Currently, there is construction being done close by so it gets noisy early. No problem for me as I'm up early anyway but... More

Having lived in Escazu 40 years ago as a young teacher, I knew I was in for a shock on my first return to Escazu. As I read reviews of hotels and saw complaints about too much noise and carousing, I wondered what it would be like to return to the quiet little town I had lived in. Then I... More

Very appealing design. Comfortable sink into it bed, clean. The bathroom was large and had a great tub. The view from our room was beautiful at night and in the early morning. Very quiet, romantic and secluded. We will go back.

La casa Cristal offers an excellent view of san Jose and surrounding mountains. It sits on a hillside away from any hustle and bustle. We stayed in 2 different rooms on either side of our trip. Both were equally clean and spacious with balconies. The only downside was that there were a few days of high winds. However, the personal... More

We stayed here over New Year's eve 2013 and WHOA!!! What a SHOW!!! The whole city of San Jose erupts with fireworks on NYE and Casa Cristal has the best view of the city on fire! I have never seen so much gun powder and so many fireworks set off at the same time in my entire life- it was... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of our 10 day visit to Costa Rica. Casa Cristal is high on a hill overlooking San Jose and the views are spectacular--especially at night. We were lying in bed one night and the phone rang. It was Zeida to ask us if we were looking out at the moon which was... More

Five star reviews are pretty rare for me, but Casa Cristal fully deserves all five (or even more) stars. This intimate, friendly, peaceful hotel is located in Escazu, in the suburbs of San Jose, about a 30 minute taxi ride (US$30) from the airport. We stayed two nights, on either end of a one-week vacation in Costa Rica. It was... More

A little gem in Costa Rica. The owners are very gracious, the place is lovely, a little difficult to find but we found it on our own with GPS help. Stunning view of the city from the room. Jacuzzi in the room...Recommended
