My husband and I have stayed here several times during the beginning and end of various travels through Costa Rica and we are never disappointed. The rooms are simple and clean, a basic breakfast of toast, fruit, juice, and coffee is included, and the bilingual staff is extremely helpful. They can arrange for a rental car to be brought to...

I spent two weeks at this eclectic and friendly property. Convenient to Centro by public bus. Nelson, a Cuban American from Chicago, can offer tips and any info you need regarding San Jose or Costa Rica. The staff is pleasant and friendly. Don't miss the stars here: Kiko the monkey, an iguana, scores of tropical fish and birds and a...

Front desk speaks English, Spanish and Italian. Rooms were bland, and not what I would call clean. We stayed 2 nights and there was NO maid service, which was the first time I have seen this in even a B&B in many years. We paid almost $100/night for the family suite: most of the furniture was antiquated; TV small; poor...

Casa Lima's hospitality and knowledge of the sights and attractions of Costa Rica is unparalleled. My husband and I stayed for four days and were impressed by the level of service, beauty of the grounds and quality of the tours recommended by their staff. And the food at the in house restaurant-delicious!!!! I highly recommend and will be returning soon

My husband and I left for Costa Rica the day after our wedding, and our first (of two) stops was San Jose. We were a little reluctant at first. Neither of us had ever been to the country, and we were concerned about finding a safe place to stay in San Jose. Then we found Casa Lima :) Not only...

It's a comfortable and nice place for stay. It's like be at home. The decoration is very original, rounded of nature. Rooms are perfectly clean and comfortable. Something that I loved was bread in breakfast. You have to taste it to understand what I'm talking about. Another advantage of this bed and breakfast is that everything is near, principal streets,...

We loved this place!! We arrived at Casa Lima late in the evening and were greeted by the owners Nelson and Judy. We were tired but hungry and they went out of their way to make us a pizza. Throughout the entire 10 days, the staff at Casa Lima went out of their way to please us and make us...

Casa Lima is truly a Costa Rican jewel. If you must stay in San Jose, I could not imagine finding a more relaxing place to stay.
