Looking for an eco hotel in San Jose, I touched down and headed for Hotel Aranjuez - but it was full and the security guard sent me across the road to Kaps Place. I'm soooo glad he did :~) I've stopped through San Jose a few times during my month long journey in Costa Rica, and have always loved the... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Kap's Place for one night in Dec 2013 after landing in Costa Rica. We were exhausted from 14 hours of travel, so we very much appreciated the quiet and relaxing vibe of the hotel. Rooms are modest but comfortable - nice bathrooms.

This is the second time my husband and I stayed at Kaps Place. Kaps serves ok breakfasts, always the same fare, but fairly good. The staff is helpful but the place is very noisy at night, more suited for young college students travelers than adults. Folks playing pool, drinking beer, smoking, and carousing until late isn't our idea of comfortable... More

After our wonderful journey throughout Costa Rica, my partner and I received an email from KAP's Place to welcome us back home safely to the United States.

We were not really impressed by the hotel. The receptionist got very unfriendly when we wanted to make tea after 10 pm and the way she said it was very rude. The breakfast buffet was not very varied. Rooms also very basic and simple. But the location is nice and the outside area of the hotel too.

Not impressed. With so many options in San Jose, stay somewhere else. Pet peeves... Internet curfew @ 10 for public computers, who does that. Horrible beds Not the best neighborhood Looks like my 16 year old sister painted the hostel Bedding is from 1970s Positives Very quite.
