We stayed for four days and had no problems or complaints the entire stay. Safe, quiet neighborhood near the US embassy with some restaurants and activities within walking distance. Uber fares were never over $10 USD for going to various places around the city and if you can't get a ride, Nelson or his staff can arrange transport. Clean rooms,... More

We had gone for dental visit at Prisma which is within a 20' walk from Casa Lima where Nelson the owner, Suzie and the rest of the crew provide a friendly, almost family like atmosphere of assistance and knowledge of the area. We enjoyed the Continental breakfast of rolls, fruit, coffee and juice every morning; couple of times we also... More

I recently spent most of a ten day dental trip to Costa Rica at this wonderful establishment. Nelson, the owner was extremely accommodating to our needs. especially my wife's sensitivities to fragrances. We went away for a few days and they held the room at our request to assure it was still tolerable for my wife when we returned. As... More

The service was outstanding and friendly. The price was terrific and having a restaurant available added to its value. Quiet area of town with local parks close by. I felt safe and comfortable the entire time. The Casa provided transportation with a smile to dental appointments

Casa Lima was small, quiet, friendly, clean, and private. We loved the ambiance, the staff was very friendly, the food was delicious and affordable, and our room was the perfect size and clean. We would definitely go again.

The owner was nice, but the hotel was not. The room and common area were very dirty and the neighborhood was sketchy. We had no hot water and the restaurant was average. Most of the hotel guest are dental patients coming to San Jose for dental work. The owner caters to these guest, but not so much anyone else. They... More

We loved our stay at Casa Lima. Nelson greeted us warmly and went out of his way to assure we had everything needed during our 8 days in San Jose. Waking up to the sound of rustling leaves, the waterfall, and chirping birds in the courtyard was so nice. The complimentary breakfast was tasty and you could order more substantial... More

From the moment I stepped through the door, I felt at "home". Everyone was so welcoming and kind. I arrived in San Jose on Nov. 24th, 2015 and stayed 2 days at a different hotel that I did not care for. I contacted Nelson, it was HIGH season and did not know if he had anything available, but I was... More
