San Jose's best B&B
on June 01, 2015
Came to San Jose for a dental clinic visit. Stayed at Casa Lima and it was a great experience. Nelson and his family were the best in making me feel welcome and helpful in getting me to and from the airport and the clinic. The residence is a magical place with all manner of native species in the courtyard. It was like living in the Costa Rican jungle while staying in the city. Listening to the waterfall outside the room was so peaceful at bedtime. Food there was great, no need to go anywhere for dining. San Jose is a neat city and enjoyed walking around to sample the local life, feeling very secure there, a lot to see. I will be returning to San Jose in the future for more dental work, and my wife and I are going in the fall to visit. Casa Lima will always be our main destination, Nelson can arrange all manner of trips for you to visit the volcanoes, the jungle, the Pacific or anywhere in country you may wish to see. Nelson and family at Casa Lima are the best, I highly recommend Casa Lima for a great and peaceful stay.

Nelson and his family were such gracious hosts--always helpful and sincerely welcoming! The food they prepared for our group was always outstanding and varied. The rooms were cozy and clean, and there is a beautiful garden in the center of Casa Lima with many places to sit and talk. I would absolutely come here again, and I highly recommend it to other people that want to experience a lovely hidden gem of Costa Rican hospitality. :)

The owners are excellent host. Nelson is very helpful and informative with travel tips and ideas. The grounds are exceptional. If you enjoy watching wildlife in your backyard, then this is the place for you.

Nelson the owner could not be nicer or more accommodating as was his staff.Property as a whole is fun to stay at with a good location.Fresh fruit.biscuits.and great coffee and juice is more than adequate for "desayuno". Rooms are clean and fresh everyday.
My problem ( my fault) is stairs.Bed was a little shaky with weak mattress.
All in all it was fun.
The staff definitely makes the place.The manager Kiko and his girlfriend
Lucy are a trip.
A garden delight!!

It was an unexpected pleasure to see the garden with the different flowers and plants. The birds, fish and Don Kiko were a lesson in biology. Peaceful and beautiful. Staying at CasaLima is good for your soul!

The owner and family live in and run this oasis. Casa Lima is located in a quiet neighbourhood a few blocks from the American Embassy. It was a good landmark and kept us from getting lost.
The Kittens Sunshine and Boots kept us amused.
Kiko the monkey played catch with the kids while we finalized our daily schedule. The atrium is a relaxing oasis.
We stayed in the adjoining family rooms and our teenage son and daughter were happy to have seperate beds. The view from the balcony was amazing.
Showers had " hot water on demand", pure luxury.
We took the bus downtown to the Market and churches, and took the Loma bus back to the Embassy. So easy.
There was a farmers market on Saturday and I bought fresh, I mean FRESH, vegetables including Breadfruit. So fun. They even sell goldfish there.
Great BnB , great hosts, great location . Highly recommend this spot
15 minutes from the airport $25 Orange taxi ride.
Casa Lima is the Place to Stay in Costa Rica!

Casa Lima is the only place I'd stay while in San Jose- a true bed and breakfast with that home away from home feel and excellent food. The rooms are comfortable, the staff extremely helpful and the location is in the center of it all. Nelson and Judie were great in helping us make the best of our stay, recommending some awesome tours and local hotspots. Can't wait to go back- already planning my next visit!!!!
A Veritable Menagerie

We recently stayed at Casa Lima at both the start and end of a whirlwind adventure trip through Costa Rica with 3 pre-teen - teenagers. Judie welcomed us thoroughly but what caught the attention of all included 2 cats, 1 monkey, 2 iguanas, a parrot, 2 turtles, and the wild birds that few in and out of the courtyard to check things out. This place has it all, in a safe residential neighborhood outside of downtown San Jose. As a way to get in/get out of San Jose as you move through the country, it's great.
Give this place a look!

Had to make a stop in San Jose for some dental work. Surgery was extensive and I did not feel well. All of the folks at Casa Lima made our stay excellent. Everyone was helpful, responsive to all of our needs and could not have been more supportive. We will be staying at Casa Lima in the future and hope to enjoy there hospitality again. Want to try the pizza next trip!
