Walkable distance to the city center, museums, restaurants and national theater makes this little please a perfect base for staying in the Capitol. Few things to be aware if you considering renting room at Casa69: place located in the middle of district with active night life. Two night clubs are located on the same block and about 5 bars in...

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

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
