I spend there just one night, my first night in Costa Rica. The room was nice, clean and not noisy. The bathroom was clean as well. The lady (owner) is really nice, it has been the best local behaviour that I received. She recommended me a restaurant to have dinner and the food there was awesome and cheap (and around...

Location is close to ave central which is the main street that allows you to walk to a lot of great places. Caveat is that the hotel is next to rail tracks so you'll hear the train at 530am. The price is good so if you plan on waking early then it doesn't matter

The Hotel Casa Leon is a great place to stay in San Jose. We spent two separate one night stays (flight in and out) and this was one of the best maintained and pleasant places we had stayed. We had two separate rooms and they were both cosy and clean. Patrick was very helpful during our stay and arranged a...

The staff was very nice- our rooms were incredibly affordable therefore not a luxurious place but all we needed was a clean private room and bathroom and that's what we got! Very cute sitting are in the entrance. Only reason I write 3 stars is because they have a dog and it bit my friend, so do not touch the...

Patrick the owner helped us out a lot with directions, buses, and even a taxi ride at 4 am. He is a very nice and for the price you can't beat your own room and WiFi and private bath. It didn't seem hot enough to need air condotiong. Both night's we stayed here were awesome! 10/10 would do again.

Nice stay in the heart of san jose. Superb located near nice restaurants, bars and shops. Very friendly hosts, patrick and his wife. Clean rooms. As written in the description, the hotel is located next to a train route, so it can be loud. I would recommend this place.

I was really happy with my stay at the Hotel Casa Leon, Patrick (I think his name was) was very nice and easy to talk to. He was super helpful with where to go and how to get around. The hotel itself is VERY close to downtown blocks and the central market. I would stay there again.

We stayed here for one night as a pit stop between flying into Costa Rica and making our way to Puerto Viejo. It's very central and rooms are nice and clean. What really stands out is the owner who's name I can't remember! He booked us a taxi to meet us at the airport and also provided us with a...
