I spent a couple of days in San Jose at the beginning and end of my trip to Costa Rica, staying at Casa 69. Even before I arrived the owners and staff were helping me navigate the Costa Rican culture and plan the rest of my trip.
When I arrived Ralph made me feel right at home. The hotel feels more like a home than a hotel. The atmosphere is as relaxed and friendly there as the decor is lively and fun.
Ralph and the rest of the staff not only helped me to settle in, they also helped me make reservations for transport and activities elsewhere in Costa Rica, and suggested places to visit or see in the City. Ralph gave me a couple of recommendations for restaurants that were excellant, one of which became my regular lunch spot while I was in the City. I could walk from the Casa 69 to just about anything I needed, and I felt safe on my own even in the evening.
I loved Costa Rica and hope to return again some day. And I will definitely start my next visit at Casa 69 in San Jose.
