The historic Posada Del Museo is located within walking distance of downtown San Jose, museums, and nightlife. The staff was exceptionally friendly, the room very spacious and clean, and the breakfast tasty. The one downside is that the hotel is situated along a very busy street, causing some noise from the early morning. Therefore, I'd recommend the hotel to anybody... More

This room was clean and the hotel was average. It is noisy. A train goes by many times during the day. The pictures of the hotel make it look more well maintained than it is. The area of town is not in good walking distance to the sites.

Centrally located and across the street to the Museo Nacional, this quaint and old hotel offers a family ambiance in downtown San José. Its broad balcony, old woods, hand-painted ceilings and homey feel, was a refreshing break from the big-and-expensive hotels. Rooms that face the Avenida Segunda (2nd Ave.) can be a bit noisy at night. Next time we'll try... More

The building is very beautiful. It's really near the city center. The train travels almost "inside" the building! ;-) But it's a nice detail, at least for me! The rooms are very different among themselves. We stayed there for 1+1+1 nights (3 nights but not in successive nights) and we had 3 different rooms. The first 2 were huge, suitable... More
