I stayed here with my sister for 1 night and wished I had stayed longer! The staff were great and the room was clean and comfortable. The shower was the best I've had in Costa Rica! We loved being able to use the clean, well-equipped kitchen and eat in the open-air courtyard. Great breakfast buffet with lots of options. The... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Big and clean rooms with places to put your things. The hotel has neat design with an interesting lay out and typical Costa Rican decor! Not to mention the amazing breakfast!! Free coffee all day, use of computers, ping pong table, garden area, and many comfortable places to sit and relax.

I recently went to San Jose, Costa Rica as a dental tourist. I stayed 12 nights at Kap's Place, and I was truly impressed. Although it was not expensive as far as hotel rooms in San Jose go, I had a great stay. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the shower had HOT water and lots... More

Kaps Place is small nice, clean with very good breakfast, friendly staff. The only little downside is that noise seem to carry far, if you're a light sleeper you will be up around 7, when breakfast is served. Besides that very nice stay, beautiful breakfast area and hangout spots. Will return again next time we are in costa rica.

Great Bed and breakfast place ,fantastic breakfast, little oasis, not far from center,good value and friendly staff. Despite being close to center it is very quiet.Different areas to read and relax in Hammocks and lovely outdoor area. Clean and colorful!

Stayed for three nights in a double with bathroom annex room. In hindsight, we would have only spent one day in San José...and one more day elsewhere...it is an underwhelming city. Kap's Place is welcoming, clean and safe. Kitchen is extremely well stocked (including blender, microwave, panini maker) and in the annex there were only two out of several rooms... More

We stayed in Kaps Place for one night after a long haul flight to San Jose . The rooms are decently spaced and offer everything you really need, including a hot shower, which isn't a no-brainer in Costa Rica's budget places. The beds are comfortable but people taller than 6ft may find them a bit too short. If you're easily... More
