A group of 15 of us went to San Jose to see the Nutcracker Ballet and spent the night at this little known gem of a place. It was clean, had a great homy atmosphere and the employees were helpful.We all live in Costa Rica but do not spend much time in San Jose. This was a very pleasant surprise. Two blocks from The National Theater, so we could walk and there was no need for a cab. It is also within very short walking distance from the Gold Museum, National Museum, beautiful parks, and Chinatown. There are excellent restaurants nearby and lots of places to shop and find almost anything you want. You can book tours through the hotel if you want a guide. The owner speaks English and is onsite. 'Can't say enough about this place. We plan to go back again in a couple of weeks for the Grand Tope of San Jose and will be staying again at Casa Alfie. It is only 2 blocks from the theater and the parade route. These two blocks are closed to all but foot traffic....very handy. Alfie is an excellent host and cook. If you ask you can very some very interesting stories.
