A nice and clean place to stay right in the middle of the city. Patrick is very helpful and can help you organise additional trips to the countryside as well as car rentals etc. There's a train track in front, with trains passing in the early morning and in the evening. That was perfectly fine for me, but if your... More

Patrick is a very helpful host, made us feel at home and had answers to all our questions. Casa Leon is very quiet, despite the train tracks (train starts early and stops early, didn't bother us at all). The rooms were clean, the coffee was excellent, it is a comfortable place to rest. The surroundings seemed a bit sketchy, but... More

Good location in san jose. Great for starting of a trip in costa rica. Good price during low season. Wifi works. Can be a... More

I booked two differents types of rooms which the more expensive ( but not so expensive: -) ) one was really nice. Anyway also the cheaper room is nice, simple and clean. I suggest this... More

I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights in May 2014. Initially, I was going to be fairly negative but changed my mind during my stay based on my experiences. After several emails confirming my arrival and requesting a taxi to meet me at the Tica Bus terminal, I never received a response. I telephoned the night before to confirm... More

We stayed here for one night in February 2014, it is within walking distance to the town center and the room we stayed in was basic but clean and comfortable. Patrick was very helpful and and even called our bus for us when it was late. No complaints, good value.

Price - Quality is great! Casa Leon has nice spacious rooms that are clean, as is the bathroom. Owner Patrick is very helpful. He showed us nice places to visit and the best way to go from the hotel to the main street. The only thing that might be a problem for some people is that the hotel is right... More

Stayed here for one night with two friends. The owner Patrick was super helpful and waited up for us as our flight didn't land till 10pm. He showed us to our room and made us feel at home. Also offers great wifi and if you pay with cash I believe that you get a discount. Wish I had more to... More

This is not the fanciest hotel you'll ever stay in, but for the price, it's probably one of the best deals in San Jose. Clean and comfortable rooms, pleasant owner, 5 min walk from the National Theatre and city parks, bakery 100m away. I'd return here. When trying to find it, note it's actually on a little sidestreet next to... More
