“Very cozy boutique hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

I travelled with my partner, we found this place on the web with a nice rate. You feel like home in this little hotel. We stayed only for a night in a very comfortable room with two beds, tv and a huge bathroom. María Luisa (Mother) was our host, a sweet lady who you can chat with for hours.

The breakfast in the garden was delicious!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

I have stayed at this B&B at least a half a dozen times. I live far from the city and need a place to stay when I come to go shopping for those things you can't find in the jungle. The family is super nice and accommodating. The B&B is conveniently located in the city where you can go downtown, visit the museums and national theater, catch a soccer game, go shopping, etc. They have a great patio to enjoy breakfast with the pet birds, turtles, and adorable yellow labs (all well mannered and don't bother the guests). A great Peruvian restaurant is located only a couple of doors down which is the icing on the cake. There's free parking. I often opt to catch a taxi to go places since they know where they are going and it's cheap. What more can I say, it's a great place and I will continue to go back.

I've stayed at Angels in 2007, 10 and 11....and enjoyed each time. The rooms are clean and comfortable, a great value, and there is a wonderful patio for breakfast, with pet parrots in cages chatting away. There is free computor use, free parking for a rental car. This friendly and interesting little family run hotel is highly recommended.

A Delightful family takes care of you in a safe little Gem of a B&B. If you are comfortable traveling in Central America, this family operated B&B will delight you. Personally home cooked breakfast served in a patio area tops off basic, clean rooms. Conveniently located between downtown and the University, 1 block from the bus line that takes you to both for 200 Colones (40 cents USD) each way.

Me and my partner are from Germany and we been in Costa Rica in March 2008. First of all: This country is a dream. We had visit San Jose, Arenal and Manuel Antonio. In San Jose we been in Angels Hotel in Barrio La California, only minutes away from the city and the park and the museums. This small B&B has only 5 rooms and the host family is realy wonderful. We loved to stay there and the rates are very reasonable. We have had a great time and want to come back.

  • Liked — the host family is so great. You feel like at home
