Casa 69 was a very nice hotel, the staff were VERY nice and attentive and Donna was a gracious host. The room was nicely decorated and comfortable. The one thing I would recommend is that you DON'T stay in room 1 or I would imagine room 2 also. The noise from the bar next door was CRAZY. Ask for one... More

We spent 4 days at Casa 69 and enjoyed it very much. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated, the staff very helpful, but the best part was the rooftop patio. We had a coffee each afternoon on the patio and took in the views of the mountains. Alma and Memo spoke very good English, and one of them were always... More

Arrived at Casa 69 in the evening, and unfortunately, our reservation could not be found. As we were not familiar with the surrounding area, this left both my wife and I quite uncomfortable. It took a bit of time and negotiating before we were able to secure a room at a respectable hotel nearby. While Casa 69 did pay for... More

What negotiations? We owned up to our error. One of the two reservations was cancelled by your party & we mistakenly thought it was both. We sent you by taxi five minutes away to another luxury hotel which is a considerable upgrade & twice the price. Everything was paid by us. I am not aware of ANY negotiations taking place... More

I'll preface this review by emphasizing that the majority of reviews I write on tripadvisor, Amazon, Facebook... are positive reviews. Casa 69, unfortunately, does not qualify for such a review. Cats cats cats where everywhere. While we tried to sleep, cats in the hotel fought and performed other various acts at high decibel levels. My wife, unfortunately, left her toiletry... More

I do not understand why you returned to Casa 69 if you had such a terrible experience. We have had people misplace things and blame it us on a number of occasions. Once we had someone forget their GPS on the dining room table and put a review on Trip Advisor stating we went into their luggage while they went... More

Incompetent individuals, lack of customer services, failure to met guest demands. We booked and paid for our stay. We're in communications before booking about our early arrival and need for shuttle pick up. Of course no room or bus pick up. And even though they had our flight info and email. There is much to be said about these two... More

It is a sad day when someone blames everyone else for their mistakes. Your booking came in very clear - check in Feb 11 and check out Feb 12. Check in is after 12 noon so we were expecting you after noon on Feb 11. You continued to correspond with us always mentioning your arrival on the 11th. You did... More

We stayed here in January 2015. It was a delight. Easy walking distance to the heart of the city. I was surprised that I enjoyed San Jose so much. Great museums, galleries, theaters, and food. We stayed in Room 2 on the ground floor, which was very quiet. Walking around the hotel was a series of delightful surprises: cozy fireplace,... More

My friend and I arrived to Costa Rica with no real plan for what we were going to do. When we got to Calle 69, we were made aware that all of the beaches were far from the capital and if we wanted we could book something closer to our destination. Problem was we didn't know what we wanted to... More

We stayed at Casa 69 for three days on a Dec 2014 trip to San Jose. It is located at the east end of downtown San Jose and is walking distance to the main areas on Avenida Central.
