Fodor's Review

Budget travelers looking for airport proximity will find this urban oasis an excellent value. Descendants of the Catalan family that thrived in this heritage house in 1920 still live next door, and historic photos of the mansion in its heyday line the earth-tone walls inside. The spacious rooms have low-slung, wide beds that make the ceilings seem sky-high—but avoid the room next to the washer and dryer. Breakfast is served in a courtyard shaded by a fig tree. Plenty of restaurants are within walking distance, the airport is a 10-minute taxi ride away, and just a few blocks away is the bus stop for La Garita, Poás, and most destinations in central and northwest Costa Rica.
