I spent a night here in Kaps Place and loved it. It's a cosy family run guesthouse with a pleasant atmosphere and decor within. It's a pretty building with lots of different corners - kitchens, 2 lounges, a TV room. The wifi works fast and the place is safe. The best part however is the breakfast!! It's a massive all... More

Myself and 2 amigos made Kaps place home for 2 weeks in August. Karolina and her staff were pretty engaging, provided us with good service and helpful info about neighbourhood and things to do to pass our time in CR. Overall,we had a massive time. It was a great stay and have nothing major to complain about.

We stayed in KAPS for 4 nights in July/August. We are a group of girl guides from the UK 3 leaders and 10 girls. KAPS was ideal for us, the price was excellent and the location safe.

I stayed here for a few nights in July. The hotel placed me in a room called "Chalet 2." It's a (very) tiny room under the stairs. I didn't have room to open my suitcase - I had to place it on the bed to open it. No windows, though an attached bathroom does have a window at head level.... More

Kap's Place was truly a delight. It's easy to see why it has earned a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. My room and bathroom was very clean.
