Casa Cambranes is located in the suburb of San Pedro, close to a big mall. While slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Jose, it's only 25 minutes walk ti the centre. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Their recommendations (best place to change money, places to eat and shop nearby, etc) were on the spot....

On arrival from the airport at the hotel we were immediately met with the warmest of welcomes from the hosts Nathalie and Carlos and of course Marvin the cat! Carlos is a wealth of knowledge about Costa Rica and freely spends his time researching things on your behalf including hunting down the cheapest car hire rates available. The rooms are...

We only stayed here one night so we didn't do much exploring, but it is a quiet location with shops nearby. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was delicious. An Uber was called for us instead of a taxi which was nice.

I selected this hotel for my sister and I based on the tripadvisor reviews. The room was a basic room but the service was exceptional. Carlos, Natte and Marvin (the cat) made us feel at home. They were very welcoming. Our first night there Carlos walked us to the area where there were several restaurants and told us about each...

I have never been treated so warmly by a hotel ever. Knowing that we had just arrived from the USA, Naty handed us a phone to use while we were there, in case we needed to make a local call or to contact the hotel for some reason. Naty and Carlos are awesome. The rooms were comfortable and I loved...

We were pleasantly surprised by the warm caring welcome we received. Four of us stayed for four nights. Hotel was clean comfortable and reasonably priced. Each morning Natty prepared a delicious breakfast with a personal touch. Carlos and Nattie answered all questions about the region and helped us with our plans. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend.

As stated in every other review - the hosts are truly kind and helpful, the room comfortable, a quiet residential neighborhood, and @ a 30 minute walk to the city center. Some reviews said good for one night, but I would argue that the wealth of restaurants catering to the locals is a good reason to stay longer.

Very friendly and helpful; nice, colorful hotel and location. Shops and mall within walking distance. Good hotel to stay at if you plan to visit San Jose, Costa Rica. Daily breakfast was tasty, healthy, and was of local flavor.

This quaint small neighborhood hotel has the most fantastic inn keepers. They will be attentive to every detail of your visit to San Jose. They helped us with local restaurants, tours and transportation.
