Spent one night here so that we could see some of San Jose before going on to Quepos. Found it to be have a certain charm, as most guesthouses do. Staff were quite helpful, directed us to downtown, etc. Ate dinner at the pub just down the street, very good food and beer. The rooftop view was lovely, saw the... More

I stayed at Casa 69 while in San Jose for 10 days for dental work, the owner was lovely and very accommodating and friendly. The staff are also excellent, I literally was laid up in bed for a couple days recovering after surgery and they even blended my banana's with the ensure powder I brought since I couldn't eat for...

As usual the best for the money, unrivaled in its category. The owner and staff are always kind and helpful. The rooms are really clean with thousands of coloured pillows tuned by colors with the simple but pleasant decorations.a nice taste. The inner gardens keeps in your mind you're in the tropics,with furry cats playing tigers.. It s a very... More

My family (2 adults and 2 children aged 7 and 8) spent three nights at Casa 69. The location is great, just a 10 minute walk downtown to the museums Theatro Nacional and the pedetrianised shopping area. Our room was clean and spacious with a fridge and safe. Breakfast was included in our booking, this was a very basic meal... More

We stayed two nights on our arrival to San Jose, had two rooms in the courtyard at the back. Rooms ok, no ac bit dated and not the cleanest in nooks and crannies. Bathroom fine and got toiletries. Breakfast is only fruit and bread, jams, tea, coffee and juice, although tea did take ages too come. Had two nights of... More

I recently spent four nights at Casa 69 in San Jose Costa Rica. Whilst the location was convenient, the internet was very sporadic with frequent brown outs, breakfast was very minimal just tropical fruit, bread, juice and coffee, and very noisy on the weekend. Alma, Lola and Enrique were friendly and tried their best to take care of the internet... More

I had dealings with Donna whom I believe is the owner. Based on every other review that is not glowing Donna will justify her actions. It’s interesting on how some folks can have great experiences and others are ripped off or mislead My review is based on a per-booked and paid room done in advance with the understanding that someone...

I have been staying at this hotel on my frequent trips to Costa Rica numerous times over the past 7 years since it was owned by Kurt. The only criticism I've ever had of the hotel is that the Wi-Fi internet signal doesn't work in the rooms on the East side of the street. I stayed at this hotel again... More

Stayed at Casa69 for 2 nights. It was very relaxing, the beds are comfortable, the rooms are very clean. It is a quiet area except for the fact a commuter train goes by starting around 4:30 but its not a big deal. Donna was very friendly and helpful. the only thing i can say is wrong is that the wifi...

The WiFi didn't work at the hotel and when I informed the gentleman at the front desk, he told me I could just use the computer in the lobby which was not helpful. I also requested a wake up call or knock so I didn't miss my flight, well that didn't happen, but luckily my alarm worked. I requested a... More
