We stayed at Casa Lima and the name is the truth. Casa, your home away from home. Nelson and Judy and all the staff made me feel at home from the moment I walked in the door. The rooms are very comfortable, great food, and amazing ambiance. I would recommend this place to anyone. Nelson also set us with a...

I was in Casa Lima for almost 2 months while in San Jose for work. Everyone was really helpful. I loved their breakfast. I stayed in room 19. They definitely do need to give it a bit of maintenance and I did mention it but otherwise I was very comfortable all the time. It is a safe area, close to...

We stayed at Casa Lima in April of 2012 in both the beginning and the end of our trip. We have family who lives walking distance from the hotel and chose this property mostly because of location but also because we had a great experience booking the property and retrieving info from the management. The courtyard was beautiful! We spent...

The courtyard and the wildlife inside was always great to wake up to. Nelson and his staff were awesome and took care of all our needs. It was a great jumping off point to our Costa Rican vacation. We would recommend this place to our friends and family.

Just finished a week's stay at Casa Lima. A good place to explore San Jose from. Clean, well run establishment with an exceptional Concierge. Daniel is the best for arranging transportation, things to do, or taste treats of local specialties. He has a "personal" touch that is a true talent. Try the pizza - it's great.

In February of 2013 I stayed at Casa Lima B & B, along with about a dozen other people who were in San Jose for church-related outreach. The family atmosphere at Casa Lima was the big plus. Nelson and Daniel were so friendly and accommodating for my personal needs and the needs of the group. The central courtyard/garden area really...
