The building is very beautiful. It's really near the city center. The train travels almost "inside" the building! ;-) But it's a nice detail, at least for me! The rooms are very different among themselves. We stayed there for 1+1+1 nights (3 nights but not in successive nights) and we had 3 different rooms. The first 2 were huge, suitable... More

Stayed here on 3 separate occasions, twice in the magnolia room and once in the toucan room. The guys at the desk were really helpful and friendly. The rooms were spacious . Beds a little lumpy and water was cold on occasion but they were the only down sides. The breakfast was lovely. Location was central. Everything you could want... More

Stayed at the hotel for several nights during recent visit to San Jose. It's a very nice hotel near the museum and city centre. Has a good restaurant and the manager and staff were extremely helpfull. Rooms and the lobby were clean and comfortable. Will definitely stay there again.

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!
