We visited Casa 69 for only one night in August. Some one night lodgings barely stay in my memory, but Casa 69 was not one of those places because of Kurt. He was so super friendly and helpful and yes, hilarious that I won't be able to forget him at all! As the others mentioned, the barbed wire a la... More

Arrived late in San Jose and had the taxi drop us off at Casa 69. The owner Kurt is a incredibly entertaining German guy who greeted us with Rum and Cokes. We must have chatted from 11:00pm till 2:00am - Kurt providing very useful information from where the local sauna is, what time of day its busiest, great nearby restaurants,... More

We arrived in San Jose for the first time and quickly found the driver that Kurt from Casa 69 had arranged to have waiting for us- we are a bit early but he was there and ready! The city can be a bit over whelming very chaotic the stone walls lined with barb wire topped with tin roofs. Than we... More

Last August, my friends and I were excited to stay at Casa 69 in San Jose BUT was severely disappointed, angry and bitter all at the same time. Since we rented a car, we tried looking for Casa 69 on our own but was unsuccessful. The owner kept insisting that it was right next to the Nicaraguan Embassy in downtown... More

Casa69, Owner at Casa 69, responded to this review

I do remember the phone conversations with the guest vividly. Three times I explained the way to the Embassy of Nicaragua and the third time I advised that they ask a cab driver to show them the way. We are in a small street, not an alley. Every guest receives with the payment confirmation very clear driving directions to be... More

Although it can be a bit difficult to find (across a side street from Pizza Hut), it is right on the edge of any and all action in San Jose. Combine that with an artful, tropical decor, and stellar service, and it's a pretty quality choice. When I screwed up placing my car in the garage too early, one of... More

We spent 5 days at this gem that we found online. After researching several B&B's, we decided on Casa 69 because of its location, price, and, above all, great reviews. We completely appreciated the service provided from check-in to check-out. All of the staff were anxious to provide us with excellent service. Casa 69 is located in a very safe... More

ok, got the room here for one night because of the reviews here on TripAdvisor. Very very pleased. Owners were great - fun and helpful! They emailed us directions to the hotel in Spanish - so we just had to show the print-out to the taxi from the airport - and he got us there safe. Rooms were clean and... More

Cannot beat that price. Wow!!! English-Spanish-German-French?. No... More
