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 staff/owners were so friendly and helpful, it felt like we were staying with friends. They helped us to navigate the city and even gave us a local cell phone with their number, so we could contact them if we had a problem. The phone gave us more confidence to explore the city. They made and served us a real... More

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. We were provided with breakfast each morning at times that suited our schedule. Also, we were provided with a cell phone for calls while in San Jose. You just... More

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

Ok, so the colinas pequenas were somewhat challenging for the first week or so and, perhaps, just perhaps, crossing Avenida 10 at rush hour was challenging, not to say life-threatening, still my wife and I stayed at this small twelve room hotel for our three weeks in San Jose and could not have been more pleased. Carlos Aguilar and his... More

The previous reviews that I read prior to booking were all good, but not really good enough! There were 2 of us. The owner and his finance were wonderful! Their service was above and beyond. They recommended places that we were considering visiting (and some that we hadn't considered) and all were great. They organized a day-long tour to visit... More

I cannot speak highly enough of the service, cleanliness, and the charm of this "hidden gem". I spent two wonderful weeks at this comfortable hotel while having dental work done (a block away). I have been traveling to Costa Rica for years and was recently told by friends in San Jose that Casa Cambranes was the place to stay. I... More

Family member recently completed an excellent 2 1/2 month stay here. We did not know what to expect in San Jose and feel so very fortunate that he stayed at the Casa Cambranes. What so many others said is true--a wonderful place to stay, with Carlos and Nati more like friends and family than staff. All the little issues you... More
