I had booked by phone but when we arrived on the 22nd December there was a for sale sign up and eventually the owner turned up to confirm it is no longer open. Shame, it looks lovely from the outside. We had to find somewhere else having just got off the plane with all our kids and bags.

I'm glad we decided to "splurge" and pay a little extra than cheapest rooms in town. The private bathroom was nice, air conditioning was very functional and welcome, tasty breakfast, a hammock and seating on the (giant) back patio area, and a pool which was in surprisingly decent swimming condition (ok, so there were a few bugs and leaves, but...

There is one stretch of the old Posado Real in Liberia that has beautiful old colonial houses. Casa de Papel is on that stretch, though it's not really that old. It is a much more authentic alternative to the modern hotels in the area. There are very comfortable outdoor areas, beautiful gardens, and some great decorating in the public areas.... More

We spent 2 nights here and had an excellent time. Adrian can organize ANYTHING. Friendly staff, Adrian speaks perfect english. The best part of the is the big porch with the pool. There is nothing better than waking up, go for a swim, relax in the hammock and then have your first coffee of the day. There are also lots... More

We decided to tack one extra day onto a group tour so we could explore Liberia and get some gifts before leaving. This charming colonial was such a surprise. The 130 year old original tiles, the antique stirrups and wooden period furniture, and most of all, the patio and pool with lovely garden. Our first room (#4) was beautiful with... More

Like gebgdc said -- an absolute oasis. More of a b&b than a hotel, this was a fabulous find. Very, very centrally located -- about two blocks from the main park in Liberia and within a block of two of the very small number of Rough Guide restaurant recommendations. Most of the hotel folks didn't really speak much English, which... More

Liberia is a safe, very clean little city and Casa De Papel is situated very close to restaurants and the central square, so it's nice to stroll about and look at the shops. The hotel is small with a beautiful covered seating area/eating area in the courtyard. Very pretty and well kept garden and pool. Very clean. The staff is... More

My favorite part about this hotel is the outside - the entire building is covered in old Costa Rican newspaper articles. It's really beautiful and fun to look at! As for the hotel, the prices are good and the service is great. The staff is friendly and able to speak English if needed. The rooms are a little small, but... More

Nice historic home with easy to find location,but disappointing in most other ways. Room was stuffy even with the A/C. Futon mattress on a platform. Pool was a bit cloudy and uninviting, but the setting was beautiful with lots of greenery and a large covered living space nearby. Breakfast was flavorless, dry scrambled eggs with dry toast, no butter or... More

My friend and I needed a budget place where to spend the night in Liberia before our departure to Europe. This place is a piece of art, beautifully decorated in a retro style. I loved the patio where guests could relax by the pool. The location is ideal: just a short walk the centre, and bus stop to the airport,... More

“Note that some rooms have private bathrooms, and some don't. We had booked a room with bathroom, but got there early enough to be offered a choice between two rooms at same price level, and we actually chose the prettier one with shared bathroom. And didn't find that to be a problem at all.”
