Hotel Castillo is a nice little hotel in the Barrio Amon district. Clean well appointed rooms in a peaceful setting, coupled with great service make this hotel an excellent choice for those who want to stay in this area and get a good deal at the same time. Perhaps more geared towards the single male adventure traveller than for families,... More

Hotel Castillo has been a favorite of mine since 2005. The hotel is nothing fancy, just plain and comfortable. The rooms are clean, and the manager and staff treat guests like family. For the room rates I pay, it is one of the best bargains in San Jose. I particularly enjoy the camaraderie of the other guests over breakfast and... More

Despite the previous reviewers thoughts, I decided to stay at the Castillo. And if a Hilton style experience is what ur after, then skip this hotel and many others in the San Jose area, unless you have a lot of room on your credit cards...this one was great value. I had a room in the rear motel style unit last... More

Well, it was an okay stay ... but only that. The staff are very good and helpfu with loal knowledge of where to go and what to do etc. But the rooms lack certain features that I take as necessary. Yes, there is free wifi, TV and a double bed. But there is no drinking water, no tea/coffee, no fridge.... More

The Hotel Castillo is located in Barrio Amon, probably the nicest neighborhood in San Jose. The hotel itself is well maintained and very reasonably priced. The hotels courtyard has an outdoor bar and is in a jungle like setting. It makes for a nice respite from the very urban San Jose. The La Palmas restaurant next door is a bit... More

While not your ordinary hotel in the manner of layout, it works well. The price is reasonable and the clerks and managers are quite accommodating. Not far from some good restaurants and drinking establishments. Some of the taxi's may not know of the location, so having a knowledge of where it is located helps...Detras el INS. is a good start..... More
