“close to airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2009

I found this gem on these forums, am I glad I did. On arrival in Costa Rica they met me at the rental car pickup to lead me to their place. It is a very nice, very clean, very quiet hotel close to whatever you need to get you started visiting this country.The staff insisted on driving you to local establishments so you do not get lost. A great conveniece.
The folks staffing this hotel were the first of many very friendly, helpful people we met on out trip.
It is so convenient to the airport it is the perfect place for first night and last night of a trip to this country.

I was there with my best friend and his feyonce for almost 10 days.
The managment was great and very professional.
The bedrooms are very comfortable and the apartment is very nice. Near by you can find a mall where you can get almost everything you can imagine...

I have made several trips to San Jose in the past year and a half, and each time I choose a different place to stay, as for me that is part of the adventure. This has been my favorite stay by far. Although it is billed as a bed and breakfast, it is really more than that. When my daughter and I stayed there last November our "room" was actually an efficiency apartment with a bathroom, 2 bedrooms, a kitchen and a living room.
An inline water heater was installed over the shower, so hot water was never a problem (and that is not always the case in CR)
Tell management what time you want your breakfast served and it is delivered and layed out for you there in your quarters - eggs, toast, and fresh fruit. There is a coffee machine and refrigerator in each apartment, Valet parking was also a huge convenience.
But what really made this place great was the management. It is owned and managed by a young Costa Rican couple who are very helpful and clearly take great pride in their hotel and their hospitality. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and to make sure you have what you need.

  • Liked — the management, the way your breakfast is brought to your room, and the spaciousness of the lodging
  • Disliked — no view
