This is my second trip to Costa Rica. During my stay at Posada El Quijote I had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Bjorn. He was the best hotelier I have ever encountered. He is friendly and treats you as his own family. He is generous with his resources and goes above and beyond to ensure that his guests have... More

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.

This is a well managed clean B&B with fabulous views of San Jose. It is well furnished. The common areas are spacious. There is a lovely patio overlooking city views. The area at Escazu is upscale and comfortable. I will return Marie

I just returned from my second stay this year at Posada el Quijote. It is the perfect place to be if you want a quiet retreat with an awesome view and lovely garden surroundings. My husband and I are “dental” tourists so this mountain setting away from the city is perfect after a day at the dentist. Bjorn (Norwegian) owns... More

Bjorn was wonderful to our family and treated us to a splendid experience. The place itself is situated on a hillside overlooking San Jose and the vistas were amazing. Viewing the rainstorms making their way over the city and towards us was breathtaking to say the least. Posada el Quijote is certainly designed for tranquility and relaxation and it showed.... More

We have stayed in lots of places in San Jose and this was definitely the best. Super friendly and helpful staff and owners, comfortable rooms with great views over the city, lovely garden with children's play area, and good breakfast included.

What a wonderful hotel. It has great views of the city, a friendly staff, and the breakfast (3 different egg/pancake options with fruit and coffee and fresh orange juice) and room were lovely as well. The hotel is also very secure. Wifi very strong. Great value!

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
