I've stayed at the Casa Cambranes several times over the past two years, sometimes for as long as a month at a time while I gave a class in San Jose. To me it is the perfect place for its reliable wi-fi, bright, clean rooms, and most of all the warmth and charm of manager Julio Cambranes, a Guatemalan historian and author who will go above and beyond to assist his guests with logistical matters, suggestions of what to do in San Jose, or anything else. Each room in the hotel has a personalized, brightly colored design that makes them quite unique. And each morning the breakfast menu is so delicious and substantive (fruit, toast, traditional Costa Rican beans-and-rice, etc.) that I have serious problems saving room for lunch and dinner! The Casa Cambranes regularly has guests from all over the world, especially Latin America (during sessions of the next-door Inter-American Court of Human Rights, it is populated by lawyers and their clients from diverse countries).
The Casa Cambranes is a good deal (roughly half what the other area 4-star, the Boutique Jade, charges) and long-term guests can ask about pricing arrangements. Generally everything comes included in the room (internet, etc.) There are also snacks and beverages for purchase.
