Casa Alfi was full of good energy. Safe, clean, spacious, central and a nice breakfast to bat! The owner, Alfi, and his ladies, Lulu, Mercedes, Olga and Carla, made us feel so welcome and at home. We felt super comfortable leaving our boys, 11+13, while we went for walks in the city.

What a great location.. easy walking distance to most attractions. Very close to Teatro Nacional & Gold Museum. Felt like a very safe area.. the police seem to have increased presence to ensure entire Centro area is safe. Feels like a comfortable B&B. Good value. Owner & staff are very helpful.

We stayed at Casa Alfi in March 2011. Sorry Alfi it took us so long to write this. But im sure it says something that after almost four years we remember our stay at this wonderful little place with great affection! At the time of our visit the hotel had basic but comfortable rooms. The breakfast was supergood! And the... More

We only stayed 1 night in San Jose but this was perfect for our needs. It was central and near all downtown attractions and in a safe well lit area. Our room at the back was huge with good hot water and quiet. We left before breakfast but Alfi did us a packed sandwich to take with us.. Very helpful... More

I've stayed in Casa Alfi 3 nights. I was happy about the location as it is in a very center on a pedestrian street. It is surrounded by restaurants, shops, the theater, museum, dancing places etc. Easy to get taxi. It was safe for me to return alone at night, as near is located the police station which increases security... More

I have been staying at Casa Alfi for years, too many visits to count, but I always count on a great price for a very comfortable room that includes a "tipico Breakfast" cooked to order every morning. The place has an ambiance that makes an old "third world" traveler like me feel right at home. Then there is Alfi himself.... More

Visited Casa Alfie with 8 other friends and rented his entire hotel for 7 nights. This is the 5th year and each time gets better and better. I recommend this venue especially for all visitors and such a great time when a group of friends/family rent his entire hotel. The staff aims to please and are attentive to all your... More

Casa Alfi feels like coming home, or satying with friends. No cold hotel atmosphere here, you are welcomed by owner Alfi and if you're lucky he will share one or more of his interesting stories with you. There are only 9 rooms, which makes it a friendly and warm little hotel. The rooms are spatious and clean and a Costa... More
