My sister and I stayed here twice during our recent trip to Costa Rica and it was great. The location is out of the main area of the city (quiet neighborhood) so it is not that easy to walk into the nightlife/shopping district but the hotel is very nice. We had dinner at a lovely cafe nearby (Cafe de los... More

We arrived late at night after a long journey from the UK. Check in was quick and easy and we were soon settled in our comfortable room. The ambience and character of this hotel (which is several houses joined together with wonderful plant-filled courtyards and lounges connecting everything together) really got our Costa Rican holiday off to a perfect start....

This hotel had great service, it was clean, and in a safe area near restaurants. They had complimentary water jars for the rooms. We only stayed one night on our way back home, and this was a good choice.

rooms were nice, super clean, a little quirky; beds were comfortable; there are ceiling fans. I'm using quirky in the best possible sense. Each room is unique and has original local art. The bathroom in the second room I stayed in had a shower you had to step down into; somehow they made it work! Breakfast and coffee were terrific,... More

My boyfriend and I made the mistake of booking the 'hotel' opposite Hotel Aranjuex. Its important to note that we were not paying customers at Hotel Aranjuex. We went over to enquire how much a shuttle bus is to the airport (cheaper than the property we stayed in) and we were made feel most welcome by the gentleman on the... More

We stayed here twice, 1 night each time. The first night we were in the main building, quite a charming, more rustic room. The second time we stayed in one of the rooms across the road, which was much more like a standard hotel room. Both were clean. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. The location is great, about 10... More

We stayed in this hotel for a few nights. It was a ten minute walk from the centre but a very quiet neighbourhood. The people on the front desk were very helpful. It was a lovely quirky place made of several houses joined together creating a unique atmosphere. Breakfast is truly outstanding both in quality and quantity. Worth staying here... More

This hotel was the perfect introduction to San Jose, Costa Rica for me. We arrived late, and the hotel staff were very helpful, showing us to our room, and getting us settled. We stayed for two days and would highly recommend it. The grounds are simply beautiful. There are lots of beautiful nooks and gardens with superb flowers and art... More
