We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our trip and the last night on our 2 week trip to Costa Rica - family of 3. It is within 10 min by taxi from the airport and about a 1/2 hr bus ride into San Jose which we did on both our first and last day in the country. The owners are so nice and hospitable, lovely rooms - 2 double beds with hot showers, wi fi and TV. A wonderful breakfast is served, felt like being with family at home. Our room was located at the back of the hotel and was very quiet - view of city and mountains, there is a seating area outside of the room if you want to just sit and read or relax. There are restaurants, the central park, and cathedral all within walking distance of a few blocks. The bus terminal for San Jose was easy to find, about a 1/2 hr ride, and we were able to take in a few sites within San Jose on foot - mainly the downtown area. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
