It was our first trip to Costa Rica. A buddy and I were there for the Central America travel experience, and initially landed in San Jose. We has a referral through a friend to stay at Casa 69, which is centrally located in San Jose. It was the only thing we booked next to the flight down. The plan was to travel without reservations. We were met at the airport by a very friendly associate of the hotel, who welcomed us and drove us to the hotel in a shuttle bus. The staff at the hotel were equally friendly, and provided us with a comfortable accommodations, and plenty of information on sites to visit, currency exchange, transportation information and different options to travel by. We further met and visited with the hotel owner Donna, who provided us with a very warm welcome and an insight to the local culture and to travel tips. The room accommodations were great, with all the amenities you need. There were all the options available for room sizes, number of beds per room, as well as staying in the main building or across the road at a secondary building. There was a friendly little pub down on the corner from the hotel, which provided a variety of drinks and food items. The hotel itself has a lobby computer and phone, that provided free international calling which was quite convenient.
Very flexible access to the international airport through the shuttle service, makes the stay in the City worthwhile, instead of having to stay in the industrial area around the airport. There is so much more to see and do locally downtown.
A high recommendation for this hotel accommodation.
