Travellers' Choice
Posada El Quijote is a Spanish colonial inn set against a backdrop of spectacular views of Costa Rica's central valley and the city of San Jose.Situated atop the first hill 3.5 miles from the city center, Posada El Quijote is far enough to be in a comfortable country setting, free from the congestion and noise of the capital, but close enough to enjoy easy access to the city and its facilities. The recently refurbished hotel, with a history dating back to 1994, offers an alternative to the large hotel chains that have recently established themselves in the area; Large enough to accommodate groups, but small enough to offer a very homely, relaxed and personal atmosphere. The staff (and onsite owners) are always prepared to provide their best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

The first night was a little nerve-racking; we arrived on a Saturday, and it was loud up until 1030 or so outside of our room (we were close to the entrance gate). After night one, we were much more comfortable:) The staff is excellent and very accommodating; it was almost as though we were cruising once again—afternoon coffee, breakfast each morning, and lots of activities local to the hotel. We have been all over CR, which was very peaceful even though it is close to the city. The pool is lovely, and the garden area attracts many birds. Plenty of seating on the pool deck, and most days, it was almost private. The owner lives on-site and is very helpful as well. He even helped me get a bottle of wine and flowers for my wife for our anniversary:) Quiet, serene, and private for being so close to the city is nice. **They do accept American cash, and if you drive, parking can be a bit tricky at times, but they make it work💪

The Posada is located in the outskirt of the capital, beautiful location and we had a very nice room. The staff is very nice and helpful and we enjoyed staying there very much....a very cosy place ! The only But.... is the following: as we had to do a COVID test for our next destination, the receptionist kindly offered us to have a doctor coming to the hotel with a reasonnable extra charge. compared to the hospital price. It was very convenient indeed and the result came in less than 24 hours. However the testing process was very painful, done with a long plastic spatula without any cotton at its edge, not at all the standard ones used...It has been over three weeks now and we still have pain in the nose....would recommend doing it elsewhere...

We were stuck in San Jose because of Covid-19, so we stayed over at this hotel for a few nights. The owner and his assistants are so warm hearted and helped out whenever they could. The Hotel is beautiful, with a panoramic-view from the pool and a delicious breakfast. Every room has its own kind of charm. Perfect for relaxing and getting rid of the noises from the big city.

We stayed at Posada el Quijote for two nights to visit family in San Jose. It was just wonderful. We felt so at home here! We will return when we visit next year, if all goes well. Lovely room, GORGEOUS view, delicious breakfast. Ivan at the front desk was terrific. The owner greeted us at breakfast, and was very nice

I recently stayed at Posada El Quijote, for ten days! It is heaven on earth and I hope to return next winter. This year was my third visit and it is the perfect place to recharge your batteries. Flights are cheap, and this year, It cost me about $700 for ten days, breakfasts, simple dinners, wifi, and a free washer and dryer. Couldn't do better than that! The city of San Jose isn't much but there are some great restaurants, my favorite is 11.47. if you want to shop there is a huge mall nearby. The Posada sits on a hill overlooking the city with palm trees swaying during the day and the city's lights sparkling at night. It has a great outdoor pool. The rooms are clean, comfy and serviceable, but the large living room has comfy chairs and sofas and that is where I like to sit. Trips to the jungle or beaches are easy to get, the owner Bjorn is very knowledgeable and witty and Alcides and Ivan who run the place with him are the sweetest most helpful people you could ever hope to meet.
