The hotel is near the US Embassy with easy access to public bus transport to San Jose and travel destinations across Costa Rica. It has a beautiful interior garden inhabited by birds, fish, and Kiko, the orphaned white faced monkey. We stayed for 2 months on business and pleasure. The staff was wonderful and helped us plan the many trips... More

Casa Lima was wonderful. My group really found it to be our home away from home, and we were glad to return there after traveling around other parts of Costa Rica. Nelson and his family took great care of us in every sense, from the awesome food, anything we needed in our rooms, accommodating our big group, as well as... More

Casa Lima was both wonderfully inviting and quick to address any needs that arose for us. The breakfast was wonderful home made rolls, fresh fruit, fresh made juice, and amazing coffee. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone traveling to San Jose!!!

Owner came to pick us up from airport and take us to his little paradise. He said he had owned it for 7 years. When I found out how much work he and his family had done to the place himself I was amazed. Nelson goes a long ways beyond necessary to suit your needs. Especially if you are having... More

Casa Lima is a unique place to stay. I investigated other recommended places and found this to be the best value, and perhaps the most friendly and helpful of all. Will most likely will go back for future trips.

I was really anxious as I planned a trip to Costa Rica with my teenage daughter, who stayed on for a service trip. I was so surprised by the hospitable, gracious service at Casa Lima. Visions of predatory vendors (I totally get this is their source of income, but that sense of invasion that can come with visits to developing... More

My husband and I stayed in San Jose for three days. Unfortunately, we did not make any solid plans in San Jose before we arrived besides our hotel reservation. Thankfully, the owner/manager, Nelson, gave us several suggestions, helped us call taxis, and truly went out of his way to ensure that we had a nice time while in San Jose.... More

We loved this hotel the 1st time we stayed, 2 years ago. This time, however, we were disappointed. We arrived around 9am (our flight came in at 5:15am and we came directly from the car rental). We hadn't planned on staying in the San Jose area that evening, so we were walk ins. They gave us two interior rooms and... More

A friend and I found ourselves in San Jose needing a hotel last minute. I am so thankful that we happened to stumble upon this gem after a taxi driver recommended it due to its central location. From the moment we stepped foot through the front door, Nelson, the general manager, greeted us and treated us as friends. He allowed... More
