“Great Hotel and location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Stayed at the hotel for several nights during recent visit to San Jose.
It's a very nice hotel near the museum and city centre. Has a good
restaurant and the manager and staff were extremely helpfull.
Rooms and the lobby were clean and comfortable.
Will definitely stay there again.

Sylvia was a welcoming and thoughtful host for my wife and I's stay in her hotel for our honeymoon. The breakfast at the cafe is good and the coffee great. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in San Jose.

The location is good with access to museums, parks and government buildings nearby. Sylvia and her staff are knowledgeable about activities nearby and take pride in the hotel and their service.

This a great hotel to stay in while visiting San Jose. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel makes for great city walking with plenty of restaurants and shops to vista close by. It's about thirty minutes from the airport. The little cafe downstairs makes a nice light breakfast for the guests. It can be a little noisy with the little train that runs along the main street, so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. All the staff at the hotel were wonderful and very accommodating.

The Posada is a great result of a family runned hotel. Tha ambien is so cozy, the rooms so well decorated, the sharing rooms make you feel like you are over a friend's place. Location is great, walking distance from the main shopping street and the mercado de artesania. Approved and Loved :)

Great ambient and style!!! The hotel is very rustic with unique decoration, very cozy, sofas, dimed light, wooden floors, walls filled with pictures of the owner´s family, I love that. Rooms are decorated in the very same style, but each one is different so it´s quite fun to choose the one you want. My room was clean, pretty and tranquil considering you are in the middle of San José. The location was ok, it´s about four blocks from the main center with shops and restaurants and there are two kind of ugly streets you need to cross to get there. But then San José´s center is nothing really pretty anyways. The hotel is just in front of the Museum (nice big building that is well lighted during the night) and on a pedestrian walk, so in a reasonable neighborhood. There is a railroad nearby, but the train passes very rarely and it did not bother me at all. The price (around 60 USD ) includes breakfast and generally speaking I think it is a very good deal for San José.

Room Tip: Really difficult, I wished I could try them all. But if I should recommend one it would probably be...

Great Hotel with lovely rooms in a good Location. Every room is decorated individually with lots of details. Great help with booking tours. Trains tracks did not bother us at all because trains didnt run at nighttime and during daytime we were out of the hotel most of the time. Definitly recommend the place and would stay again!
