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.

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 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!!!!

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.

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!

We very much enjoyed our stay. We checked in thinking we were getting a basic hotel that happened to be close to family and were pleasantly surprised. We stayed at Casa Lima at both the beginning and the end of our trip. The courtyard was amazing, a little oasis in the middle of Pavas! Don Kiko was a blast to play with! Our rental car was safe, there is outdoor parking, it's monitored, we had no issues. We felt secure, our rooms were on the 2nd floor and you needed a key to get to the upper level exterior hallways that lead us to our rooms. Our rooms were adjoining. One with 2 twins and one with a queen. Both had bathrooms, A/C, mini fridge and TV's. We were very comfortable. There was a couple, a single and a 5 year old in our party. The breakfast was great! I always enjoy the typical Costa Rican continental breakfasts, fresh fruit, juices, bread and plenty of coffee!! We will most definitely come back! We found our gem in the city! We stayed in April of 2012.

Great value for the price. The service was excellent and the food was good. However, if you're a big eater, the continental breakfast may not be enough. There is an option to purchase breakfast from the menu to supplement the continental breakfast. Rooms were a great size and were very clean, though the mattresses could be a tad softer, but that may just be a personal preference.
