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!

Staff were super accommodating and helpful arranging onward travel and also can arrange a convenient pick up or drop off at the airport. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The common areas are very pleasant to hang around in. The included breakfast is very tasty and plentiful. The hotel is located a few blocks away from the central area of... More

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

We stayed at the chalet in room 4 and 5 I believe, which are simpel but beautiful and clean. The hotel owner made us a really good price for the two double rooms as a family, We liked the kitchens, where we could make tea and warm up the bottles for the children. The hotel is within walking distance from... More

First off, this place is great especially if you are staying for a longer time. We stayed here for almost a month while working, and were quite comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly. Breakfast here is great- typical Tico style with fruit, coffee, fresh juice and more. Parking is available as well. The hotel is spacious, and there are plenty... More

I have just stayed one night in Kaps Place and really enjoyed it. The taxi driver found the hotel without a problem - even with all the one way streets. The street was pretty quite, but we also just arrived around 10pm. The receptionist was friendly and showed us our room. It was clean and cozy. The pressure in the... More

I was visiting Costa Rica for an outdoor adventure with all details planned. I decided to arrive a day early and stay a day late to explore the San Jose area and after spending a lot of time researching B&Bs, hotels and hostels, I booked with Karolina (the owner) at Kaps Place. Karolina responded to communication quickly and was always... More
