First time experiencing Casa Isabella and I can say this is the best kept secrete in the San Jose B&B industry!. Safe neighborhood, convenient to shopping and banking, quite location, quality stay. Although the airport is 15 km away, a private van and driver is available for $30 for up to 5 people. Roberto Lizano, the manager, is fluent in... More

Initially, we would stay here for three nights, but we liked it so much that we changed plans and returned at Casa Isabella halfway and at the end of our trip. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are spacious, breakfast is fine, the view over San José is nice too, but basically we came back because of Roberto, the owner.... More

My wife and I took a two week adventure vacation with our 6 and 9 year old children. Nothing was planned and we just wandered around Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. Knowing nothing about San Jose, I randomly picked this hotel the night before hopping a bus from Nicaragua. We all felt like we had won the lottery. The rooms... More

Roberto at Casa Isabella was the nicest person that I think I have ever dealt with in the hotel industry. His attention and personality are truly remarkable. This b&b is a MUST stay for anyone travelling to Costa Rica. Not only is Casa Isabella a gorgeous place, but it is budget priced, offers meals, as well as tours, cars and... More

A lovely place located walking distance from several restaurants (or a $2 cab ride). The only drawback is it's a $30 cab ride to the airport. The room was lovely, and even with a small problem, the owner was very accommodating in changing our room. He was also a lifesaver on an issue when we arrived. We are very grateful.... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. Owner, Roberto was very informative and helpful. The breakfast was great. Started with coffee and juice, then a plate of wonderful fruit. Some days we had a typical Costa Rican breakfast...eggs, beans & rice , ham & toast and I think one day we had cereal & fruit. Our room was #2 which was actually... More
