I just returned from spending 2 weeks at Casa Laurin, while I was in Escazu for dental work. I chose this place for the location to my dental clinic, I was able to walk to it in less than 10 minutes.As I discovered I was near absolutely everything. When I first arrived, Ginette greeted me at the door and showed... More

We made two very pleasant stays at the Casa Laurin where we appreciated the location, hospitality and quality accommodation. We stayed in the two superior chambers that are carefully designed and equipped. Ginette, and her replacement Ginette!, were a great source of information and they did everything to make our stay enjoyable. We have no hesitation in recommending this establishment.

Ginette is the hostess with the mostest! Great house and location but what makes this so special is Ginette who takes care of all your needs, handling reservations, appointments, and providing you with the best driver who speaks fluent English and is so accommodating. We all became great friends.

Every year in November, I travel to Costa Rica and stay at Casa Laurin before heading out to other places. The rooms are well maintained and very clean. I always feel at home in my room or sitting in the main living area next to the pool. Taxi drivers know this location and if not, it is easy to find.... More

This is a great B&B to stay near San Jose. Ginette was so nice. I had to stay 7 days and if it was possible, would have liked to stay much longer ! I will recommend this B&B to all my friends without any problem !

Ginette runs a very good operation giving you personal attention that makes you feel part of the family. As many other guests, we were visiting for some dental treatment (as this is not near tourist attractions). The area is quiet and secure. There are many restaurants within walking distance as well as a Wall-Mart. There is also a local bank... More

After exploring several options on Trip Advisor, we decided to stay with Ginette when my husband had dental work in October. We definitely made the right choice. Ginette welcomed us and directed us to a nearby restaurant for a much needed meal after a long day of travel. She helped us with banking and shopping and even went with us... More

We stayed with the lovely Ginette in August 2014. Ginette is very warm and welcoming, there is nothing she can do for you that is too much.

We stayed overnight before a flight out of San Jose with friends who had been here many times. Ginette was extremely welcoming. We appreciated the refrigerator for guests, the computer to check in, & the details including the instruction booklet in the room.
