We stayed here for one night - that was enough as we didn't sleep too well thanks to the noise of the bar next door and the very loud trams. We also had a drama with parking - we had paid $10 for a space but a car was blocking it so we couldn't put our car in, we left...

I was recommended this place from a friend in Canada. I'm a solo backpacker, so this was a treat to stay here for a night but totally worth it! The minute I walked in the door, I was early so my room wasn't ready: but I immediately felt at home with great conversation, coffee & fruit. The rooms are huge...

So we stayed one night (one too many) at Casa 69. We were planned to be picked up the next morning to go on a volcano hike. We were mainly staying in Cahuita for our trip to CR, but had to stay a night in San Jose for the hike. Staying at Casa 69 was a mistake. I went off...

Staff ok, not overly friendly but not rude either. Some rooms are small some are large but very clean. The hotel is next to a very noisy bar so expect to be till 2 am on Friday nights due to the noise. It is also next to a train station so if you don't mind the train and bar noise...

We stayed at Casa 69, only 2 night, enough to realize that it's no a place to stay in San Jose I repeat, no recommend, noise of two bar, the train every 2 hours, lack of maintenance, and the only person that help is the nigh guard.

We had a great couple of nights at Casa 69. The location is perfect, staff were friendly and the room was very comfortable. There's also a beautiful view from the rooftop patio and a nice continental breakfast included. I'd highly recommend checking out Oso cafe (next door) while you're there. Their pizza, empanadas, and mango goji lemonade are incredible.

For the price you pay, this has to be one of the best B&Bs you could go to. The rooms are decorated like a five star hotel. Breakfast was fruit and bread, with coffee and fruit juice. Additional items were available for purchase, such as pancakes or gallo pinto. We were in the annexe and it was really quiet, although...

We looked for a safe, clean and relaxed place in central San José and this was bullseye. Nicely decorated with helpful staff. Small garden-area. Breakfast was fresh and good. As some have mentioned here earlier, this was an oasis/waterhole almost in the city-centre. Have a beer on the roof terrace and watch the odd commuter train pass by further downhill...

Pros: affordable, good service, friendly staff, breakfast included Cons: -woken up by trains starting early in the morning (~4:30) which is obviously no fault of the hotel owners but was a significant minus. -for some reason our room was left unlocked everytime it was cleaned. Not sure if this is standard or an oversight. Overall the premises seemed secure and...
