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! Areas of improvement: Need fly wire screens on the windows, as insects came in. I had to close the two top windows as it was... More

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.

Convenient location (near the university and walking distance from the city centre), nice hosts who make you feel at home, a quiet neighborhood, really great breakfasts featuring fresh local fruit, and well-kept, clean rooms make for a great experience. It has sort of a B&B feel to it. The only downside is the lack of air-conditioning. This would not normally... More

This hotel is more like a bed and breakfast and only in the best possible ways. The proprietors, Carlos and Naty, are so warm and helpful to guests. They speak English and Spanish fluently and really know how to make a gringo (like me) feel at home in a foreign country. The rooms are very clean, though, simple. If you... More

Hotel Casa Cambranes is a great choice for a stay in San Jose. Caring hosts are willing to help with any request...even got up at 3:30am in the morning to make sure we got off safely to the airport for our "too early in the morning" flight!! Rooms are simple, clean and comfortable and include a good breakfast. Good Wifi!!... More

This 12 bed hotel is run by Carlos and Nattie and offers superb simple homely accommodation in down town San Jose. This is a safe area and is close to the courts of human rights and is a short walk to a shopping centre with many bars and restaurants also. Breakfast is included in the modest price and was delicious... More

Home for 4 days of our extended Costa Rican trip has been Hotel Casa Cambranes, a small place in bustling San José that feels part hotel, part someone's home, probably because it is both. The hosts are Carlos and his wife, Naty, who are truly the most gracious, accommodating hosts we've ever had. Highlights: Carlos and Naty - they helped... More

Hotel Casa Cambranes is the place my husband and I continue to call home here in Costa Rica. We have now stayed here four nights (and counting!) over the span of 2 weeks, leaving only to explore other areas of the country and then return. Being here is like being home.

Great location that's for sure. 2 supermarkets within 10 min walk, restaurants, Starbucks and a shopping mall nearby.
