“A true Diamond...”
Reviewed December 5, 2007

We just stayed at Casa 69 for three nights, and I am very sad to be home, and not there. The location, accommodations and breakfast way exceeded my expectations. The owner and his staff were helpful and a joy to be around. This is an expereince I will never forget. I can't wait for my next visit. I stayed in three different rooms--all were great. Also, this is a fantastic location. It is only a couple of blocks to the Meseo Nacional, the Teatro Nacional, Mercado Central and other attractions.

We can't say enough great things about this wonderful inn. Kurt, the owner, is a gracious and helpful host. We felt as if we were special guests in a beautiful home. The breakfast is a treat, and Kurt will ensure that you are safely on your way to your next destination with taxi reservations and good information.

You won't find a better place in San Jose.
Besos Kurt!

We stayed for the first night of our trip, arriving late from an international flight. We had a room inside the main house though the others were large building out the back.

The hotel is clean and comfortable and the breakfast lived upto reputation! Had a chilled vibe but we really weren’t around long to enough to check it out. The staff working whilst we were there didn’t speak much English (not necc a bad thing) but we managed to get by and they booked a taxi for us to leave the next morning. We ended up paying about $10 more than quoted when we reserved – but I suppose that’s our fault for not checking before we paid!
