Casa Laurin was one of the most memorable parts of our 2-week stay in Costa Rica. We stayed there the night we arrived and again the night before we departed for home. Ginette, the hostess was friendly and extremely helpful for a first time traveler to Costa Rica. She made arrangements for a taxi to pick us up at the... More

This is such a great place to stay. Ginette makes you feel at home while you are a away from home. This was my second time staying here and highly recommend this B&B. The breakfast she prepares is always excellent!

I spent over a month at Casa Laurin and loved every minute of it! I went to Costa Rica to recuperate from a bad back and stressful life from working too many hours. I wanted to stay at a place where I felt comfortable and would feel at home. I was working while staying at Casa Laurin. I taught two... More

Another visit to Casa Laurin B&B and as always, everything is perfect. Car rental was delivered and dropped off at Casa Laurin, no worries. Nice walk to restaurants and short taxi ride to the mall. I am looking forward to my annual visit in October.

The innkeeper, Ginette, takes great pride in customer service. She speaks three languages, she orders taxis and speaks with the drivers to make certain they know where to go. She orders dinner at a guest's request. She is equal to a travel agent with her knowledge of day trips or overnight stays. The B&B is spotless and the rooms are... More

Casa Laurin was just what we needed after spending 2 weeks in the costa rican jungle. The home itself is gorgeous, lots of wood work and is located in the prestigious "beverly hills" of San Jose. The rooms are quaint, cleaned every day and the beds are comfortable and we got a great sleep. Also, there is satellite TV and... More

Casa Laurin is the best B&B in San Jose. Accomodations are great and Ginette, the owner, is attentive to all your needs. The correct place for a pleasant vacation, where you will feel at home away from home.
