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

Our friends booked rooms for us here since we only needed to stay in San Jose for 5 hours before our flight out in the early morning. It's difficult to find (took us 40 minutes up and down one way streets) if you have a car because it's on a one way street and on the pedestrian only part of... More

This was a one night stop for us since we arrived in Costa Rica somewhat late. We were on our way to la fortuna and needed a place to stay for the night, so after reading some decent reviews via tripadvisor and recommendation from our lonely planet guide, we opted for casa alfi for the night. Lets make this quick.... More

We stayed for one night and arrived around 10pm, Alfi was there to settle us in and made us a toasted sandwich and we had time home made stew which was delicious. It was a nice touch to have a personal welcome when we arrived. Our room was clean, good sized with fan. good shower with warm water. The only... More

It's not the Ritz, but at these prices, were you expecting the Ritz? Lovely, helpful staff almost make you forget that the rooms are Spartan and cramped. The location is perfect, and the brekky bearable, for a morning or two, but the bed was not as comfortable as some reviewers. I would go back, but the Casa Alfi is not... More

We stayed only the night whilst passing through San Jose but you cannot beat the location for walking distance and access to everything. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The beds are comfortable and we had one of the best nights sleeps in a long time. It's true you do hear the noise from outside early in the morning,... More

A group of 15 of us went to San Jose to see the Nutcracker Ballet and spent the night at this little known gem of a place. It was clean, had a great homy atmosphere and the employees were helpful.We all live in Costa Rica but do not spend much time in San Jose. This was a very pleasant surprise.... More
