Casa Alfi is comfortable and right for my budget. It is conveniently located in the heart of San Jose. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included. Access to the Internet is free, but is a little slow. It works and it is available. That's important to me as I need to check my flight status and email....
