We had a lovely stay at Casa 69 our first and last night in San Jose. Kurt was extremely helpful over email ahead of our visit, providing information on transportation, directions, and recommended places to visit while in Costa Rica.
The location is in the city, and was not as difficult for taxis to find as I might have thought. It is quite hidden. The rooms we stayed in were lovely -- beautiful art, clean bathrooms, comfortable beds, and a nicely stocked mini fridge. The breakfast was simple and perfect - bread, jams, fresh fruit and juice, and delicious coffee. The staff was very helpful and polite. The rooms had satellite tv which was a nice surprise, we were even able to watch part of march madness!
The only cons that come to mind is that our room the first night was a bit noisy. But it wasn't really a big deal for us city dwellers. We would definitely go back! It's always nice to support gay friendly businesses (that are also straight friendly!).
