This is a beautiful old property in San Jose, Escazu District. Though a little frayed and worn around the edges, it is very nice. Free wifi, free breakfast, and an exceptional staff. Some minor fixes and a little upgrading and it would be a 5-star facility.

We just returned from a perfect family vacation in Costa Rica and stayed the whole week at the Posada El Quijote (less than 30 minutes from the airport).

We used this location as our base while we traveled around the country. Our stays were comfortable and the hosts were very accommodating. There were three of us sharing a large room with 2 queen beds. On our last night in, Bjorn and Alcides offered our friend a large room to herself, at no extra charge. It was a nice...

Bjon and staff is probably the best staying experience I've ever had! So professional and help are everyone on staff. I spoke at a conference at Real Intercontinental and the Uber drive there was short and inexpensive

Al, the receptionist was amazing! He was so helpful in all things we needed. Bjorn, the owner was likewise kind, and amicable. If you're looking for a sterile, USA environment, go to the Marriot. If you want a superbly aesthetic, peaceful Costa Rican experience, come here. You won't be disappointed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Posada El Quijote is a Spanish colonial inn set against a backdrop of spectacular views of Costa Rica's central valley and the city of San Jose.Situated atop the first hill 3.5 miles from the city center, Posada El Quijote is far enough to be in a comfortable country setting, free from the congestion and noise of the capitol, but close enough to enjoy easy access to the city and its facilities. The recently refurbished hotel, with a history dating back to 1994, offers an alternative to the large hotel chains that have recently established themselves in the area; Large enough to accomodate groups, but small enough to offer a very homely, relaxed and personal atmosphere. The staff (and onsite owners) are always prepared to provide their best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. ... more   less
