Sylvia was a welcoming and thoughtful host for my wife and I's stay in her hotel for our honeymoon. The breakfast at the cafe is good and the coffee great. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in San Jose. The location is good with access to museums, parks and government buildings nearby. Sylvia and her staff are knowledgeable... More

This a great hotel to stay in while visiting San Jose. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel makes for great city walking with plenty of restaurants and shops to vista close by. It's about thirty minutes from the airport. The little cafe downstairs makes a nice light breakfast for the guests. It can be a... More

The Posada is a great result of a family runned hotel. Tha ambien is so cozy, the rooms so well decorated, the sharing rooms make you feel like you are over a friend's place. Location is great, walking distance from the main shopping street and the mercado de artesania. Approved and Loved :)

Great ambient and style!!! The hotel is very rustic with unique decoration, very cozy, sofas, dimed light, wooden floors, walls filled with pictures of the owner´s family, I love that. Rooms are decorated in the very same style, but each one is different so it´s quite fun to choose the one you want. My room was clean, pretty and tranquil... More

Great Hotel with lovely rooms in a good Location. Every room is decorated individually with lots of details. Great help with booking tours. Trains tracks did not bother us at all because trains didnt run at nighttime and during daytime we were out of the hotel most of the time. Definitly recommend the place and would stay again!

The hotel is a nice historic building in the heart of San José. The staff is friendly and very helpful. So far, so good. The problem is the noise. The rooms are not well isolated, so that you can hear any noise made in the hotel or arround it. It's right next to a major road (lots of traffic) and... More

I have stayed at this hotel on 3 separate occasions now, so clearly it is a decent enough place to keep drawing me back. Every time I have arrived I have had a member of staff greet me by name (I wasn't the only guest there either!) and then go out of their way to help me and make sure... More
