The owner is totally obnoxious and disrespectful of customers, regardless of the fact that when they reach her place, they have X hours’ flight behind them. She takes advantage of hotel booking sites, but once people have made their reservations she asks via en email, which I was fortunate enough not to receive, to make a prepayment via her own... More

Clean, affordable and close to city attractions where you can walk to by foot such as the museums and markets. A continental breakfast is included with the room fee (fruit, bread and coffee). The owner, Donna is very nice and gave us a lot of pointers to make the most of our stay. The only Con was my room was... More

During my trip to Costa Rica in March 2014, I was looking for a conveniently located B&B which was close to all of the major attractions in the city. Casa 69 fit the bill perfectly! It is just a 7-8 min walk to the National Museum/Artisans Market, and a 15 min walk to the National Theater area. Dining/drinking options abound... More

As I had read in previous recurring comments, the owner systematically refuses customers who have booked through Bookings.com, on the ground that the price shown on the reservation printed by the customers displays the 13% VAT. Her strategy is to accept those reservations to fill her rooms daily, but if she has had customers without reservations come to her before... More

Unfortunately we did have a very bad start when I informed you that there is a 13% tax on our room. You continued raising your voice and shouting even when I showed you the e-mail we sent you regarding prepayment for your room to confirm your reservation. You stated you never received it and then you told me you know... More

The rooms are nice and clean. It's about 15 walk into town. The staff were friendly however the owner was a bit off-hand during the reservation process and during our stay. The hotel is home to 3 dogs and 5 cats. The main problem, which was a big one is the noise. It's very NOISY. There's a train which goes... More

Its been a year since my last stay. This time I took my Mom. Everyone was friendly, the room was clean, the plants were well kept, the breakfast was wonderful - in short - I want to keep coming back. Thank you for a great stay!

As we arrived at night, they told us they didn´t have any room for us. They took us to another hotel where they supposedly reserved a room for us, but that hotel didn´t have that other reservation. So, we ended waking with our bags searching for a new hotel. We didn´t see much of the hotel (But be aware of... More

Our policy requires that we receive payment to guarantee a reservation. The best way to do this is to book and prepay your reservation through our web site. These reservations are given priority. We did not receive payment from you. As such we did not hold your room. We did however find you alternate accommodations at a nearby hotel with... More

My boyfriend and I had a great stay for two nights at Casa 69. We arrived very late at night but there is a 24 hour reception which was ideal. We had booked a deluxe room and it was lovely, just how it looks on the pictures. There was a fridge and a safe in the room which was an... More

The hotel is located 15 minutes walking from the downtown concourse and there are a number of museums and other sites in the area. There are also some good restaurants nearby. The Peruvian... More
