Javier and Pilar are wonderful hosts. They seem to genuinely enjoy the hospitality business. They make a great effort to make sure your stay meets your expectations by providing everything from sightseeing and restaurant suggestions to calling (reliable) cabs when needed. Pilar has a very nice garden and I photographed butterflies every morning. The breakfasts were tasty. We met and had interesting conversations with other travelers and shared notes about traveling in CR. Very homey and comfortable. It's a great starting and stopping point for visiting Costa Rica.

The house is nice and comfortable. Rooms are spacious and functional. Wifi works fine and at good speed. Beautiful tropical garden. Javier and Pilar are very friendly hosts.
Breakfast sitting in the garden is a great experience. Javier and Pilar and their staff will serve you abundant breakfast with fresh pressed juice, tropical fruits and eggs accompanied by good bread and good coffee. All in all a nice experinece.
Next time in San José I have no doubts on where to stay.

Just a perfect little place. Xavier and Pilar are warm and wonderful and the house is quiet, comfortable, accessible and in a nice neighborhood. It's like staying with family.

My stay at Casa de las Tias was my first bed and breakfast experience. My daughter and her boyfriend recommended this lovely place to me, after staying there thier first night in Costa Rica in January. Xavier and Pilar were the most lovely people, they made me feel so welcome, and so very helpful with all of my travel arrangements. The property was absouletly breathtaking with all of the beautiful flowers, each morning while eating breakfast on the backyard patio I would see multiple varieties of butterflies and birds. My room was very clean and my balcony view of the gardens and mountains was beautiful. Xavier and Pilar gladly arranged to have a van transport me to the airport at 4:45 am my departure day. My visit to Costa Rica was wonderful and my stay at Casa de las tias was part of the reason! I would highly recommend this beautiful home away from home!

A home away from home! Casa de las Tias offers a welcoming country-like oasis in an urban setting. Xavier and Pilar are most accommodating and provide a friendly and comfortable environment to start or end your CR adventure. The house is simple and enchanting. The surrounding grounds are alive with flowering plants and numerous species of birds. We loved it here!
