I enjoyed staying at Casa Cambranes twice. The hotel owners were really friendly and helpful, rooms are very clean and comfortable and they provide a good breakfast. There are restaurants, a supermarket, ATM and pharmacy a short walk away. The hotel is set in a quiet neighbourhood so the rooms are quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

The rooms are not fancy but have what you need and have large bathrooms. There is free internet. It was a great find and will... More

Carlos and Natalia are fantastic hosts. You are like family when you stay here. From invaluable travel help to the freshly prepared breakfast in the morning to great conversations in the evening, I couldn't ask for a better place to stay while traveling. They even gave me a cell phone to take on the road to call them if I... More

Hotel Casa Cambranes is a great option for staying in the San Pedro/San Jose area. The rooms are spacious enough, clean and comfortable. But most important is the hospitality provided by Carlos and Nati. They helped with taxi arrangements, restaurant guidance, and even invited me to watch a football match with them at a local restaurant. The also prepare a... More

Carlos and Nati were perfect hosts for my first visit to Costa Rica. They made me feel at home and provided invaluable help throughout my stay with them. My itinerary was disrupted, and they helped me with every aspect of my first visit to their country. Thank you so much!

The rooms were quiet, very clean and the linens were changed daily. The staff was excellent, attentive and very friendly. They went out of their way to attend to our needs.

In our opinion, Casa Cambranes is the best place to stay in San Jose Costa Rica! My wife and I just celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary at Casa Cambranes where we stayed for 8 wonderful nights. The two of us have vacationed often in places like Hawaii, Alaska, Arizona etc., staying at many hotels, motels and B &B's; and we... More
