I booked a room with friends at Casa 69 for our night of arrival in San José. After having such a good experience, we came back two more times over the course of our stay in Costa Rica. The rooms were all decorated beautifully (I saw the inside of most of them) and are located on the opposite side of...

We stayed at Casa 69 one night as we were passing through San Jose. The hotel was quite pleasant, the room was lovely and the entire facility was very well maintained. Everyone on staff was helpful and quite pleasant to interact with as well. The only down fall I could point out about the actual hotel would be that they...

This means that once you arrive, it is not necessary to take a taxi to many of the activities that most guests are looking for - shopping, National Theatre, museums, great restaurants, casino's and night clubs. Some hotels may...

I stayed at Casa 69 at the beginning and end of my trip to Costa Rica, and I am happy I did. The accommodations are clean and pleasant and the staff and owner engaging and very helpful.

The owner and the Staff of Casa 69 are very friendly! They helped us to organise a Taxi and to give back our Rental Car. The rooms are clean and have very nice furniture.

My fiance and I were doing some traveling around Costa Rica so we really weren't looking for somewhere to stay for more than one night. A local shop recommended casa 69 as a great little spot to check out, so we did. It was great. We loved it so much that we decide to stay for a couple of days...

The place was a little tricky to find - even with GPS and Google maps (which is not very helpful in much of Costa rica!); and it didn't help arriving in the dark. Once there though the space is really quaint and well put together. The room was very small but clean. the art on room 6's walls not quite...

Thank you for your review. It is nice to hear from guests who have enjoyed their stay. My wife Donna and I purchased the Hotel a year ago and have been changing and updating some of the decor since then. The art in room #6 was some of the original artwork that came with the Hotel.
