Fodor's Expert Review Mansión del Parque Bolívar

Avda. 11, Cs. 11 and 13, San José, San José, 10101, Costa Rica

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The pleasures of a small French-style inn are yours at this restored three-story mansion—rooms are all on the top floor—that dates from 1910 and evokes the neighborhood's stylish heyday. Accommodations range in size from smallish rooms to a family suite that easily sleeps four people. All are generously furnished with the old (period woodwork) and the modern (flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and in-room safes). The second floor here is taken up with the reception area and its friendly staff, as well as the La Terrasse restaurant.
