Costa Rica is filled with attractive lodging options, but when it comes to San Jose the options become narrower. The capital city has lots of potential, but it seems as if hoteliers sometimes forget about it. For this reason, backpackers are often resigned to spending scary nights at the rundown hotels near the Coca Cola bus terminal, businessmen flock to the soulless and expensive chain hotels, and families traveling with pets forgo the capital altogether and seek lodging far from the city.
Hotel Casa 69 in Barrio La California is the perfect option for travelers looking to spend quiet and comfortable nights in the heart of San Jose. Casa 69 is the address to this charming hotel located on 25th street, on the east end of the downtown district. Everything that travelers need is within walking distance of this cozy boutique hotel, which is ranked number 3 among 50 similar bed and breakfast lodges in San Jose by the esteemed Trip Advisor travel review website.
Hotel Casa 69 occupies a historic home that is part of the heritage of San Jose’s elegant residential architecture before World War II. Like many well-appointed houses in the neighborhood, Casa 69 features an immaculate garden and a rooftop terrace that looks down to the tower of the National Museum, the city and part of the central mountain range to the southwest. Central Avenue, the main pedestrian boulevard, is just a short walk from the hotel, as well as restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, parks, art galleries, and everything else the city has to offer.
All rooms match the combination of modern and traditional décor found throughout the hotel’s courtyard, living room and dining room. Each room features a television, small refrigerator, private bath, room safe, and alarm clock. High speed wireless Internet can be enjoyed throughout the boutique property, and a desktop computer is also available as well as free phone calls to the United States and Canada (the couple that owns Casa 69 boutique hotel is from Canada). A delicious breakfast is available each morning.
With prices starting at $45 per night, Casa 69 is the perfect lodging option for travelers arriving in San Jose. This is a pet-friendly hotel, and the management is also involved in the support of a sea turtle rescue organization. Gay travelers are always welcome. Ticos and foreign residents can inquire about special pricing.
