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... More

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.

After spending a few days up in the Nicoya peninsula I returned to San Jose for 3 days prior to my departure. I had chosen this location mostly based on it's proximity to where I wanted to go. The outside of most of the buildings in the area having grates was, at first, surprising. Once inside however I found this... More

The owners of Hotel Casa Cambranes are lovely people and were very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make my time in San Jose more enjoyable. I also loved their cat!

Hotel Casa Cabranes and the owners Carlos and Natty are very friendly. They were so welcoming to our group. They assisted in finding a spot for our group of 12 to find a good dinner. They even loaned us a cell phone while we were out in case we needed anything. They made us feel at home in their hotel.
