I've been reviewing hotels and want some confirmation. We usually stay in fairly inexpensive places, b & bs, hostels, little local places.
From my guidebooks, I had selected these to consider in San Jose:
Hotel Costa Rica Morazan
Hotel del Rey
Well, the TripAdvisor reviews of the first two focused on the women available to the guests, and the super-friendly, super beautiful staff. Those don't sound appropriate for a happily married couple in our 60s. :-(
Backpackers got pretty mixed reviews, Pangea terrible reviews, and CR Guesthouse really stood out as the best option.
We are not interested in casinos. We are more interested in culture, museums, history, parks, cafe life, markets (but not shopping otherwise). In terms of location and value, would the Guesthouse be a good choice?
