Hemingway Inn

Reviewed 31 December 2011

I have been staying at the Hemingway Hotel for the past 5 years. I am so impressed with the new owner, the new manger and the rest of the great staff - friendly, interesting with lots of enthusiasm for making great new changes. Finally, the Hemingway has gotten management that fits the unique, artistic feel of the historical building.

There is a family like atmosphere that makes the guests feel welcome and like part of the team. They get to know the other guests and often make arrangements to meet up again on their next visit. There have been some wild and crazy goings on in the past. Those days are over. Now, it's professional, clean, fun and improving everyday.

Be sure and visit the small, but fascinating Jade Museum filled with beautiful examples of Costa Rican Indian Pre-Colombian art - only one block from the hotel. There is also a small park across the street from the museum where you can join the locals sitting and chatting amongst the tropical flowers, magnificent trees and bamboo.

Found Calvin the new owner and all his staff to be super friendly and helpful. The have really been putting in lots of time making the place better and are very open to my thoughts. Its a great location and the area is clean and not too noisy, just some car on a not too busy road. My room was quiet and the perfect temperature. plenty of english and spanish on the TV and WiFi everywhere. Will come back and stay again. The new staff is just 2 months old so I wish them luck

Room Tip: $35 dollars for a single bed room is a good deal here.
