This little place was just great. We had a room reserved for only one night but unexpectedly needed an extra night and when we showed up a day early they were very gracious and helpful. Our room was nice and clean and comfy and the mini-jungle complete with monkey was fun! Our first night we had dinner there and it was cooked to order and very good. We went back to our room and a few minutes later they brought us up a complimentary bottle of wine. What a nice touch and much appreciated!
“great place to stay in san jose but hard to find”
A hard place to find but worth the effort.A little misleading from looking at the entrance,but once inside it was very nice.A jungle courtyard including birds and monkey was very nice.
The first night we stayed was great. The second night (at a different point in our trip) when we checked in the room hadn't been cleaned. The owner's had been out of town on a vacation for a week and it seemed to have been overlooked. They were incredibly apologetic and moved us to a suite for the night. Awesome courtyard garden and bar area. I'd highly recommend.
Everybody here was great, very friendly and helpful with directions when we needed them. The place is beautiful, like being in a little rainforest.
“Great atmosphere and staff at this B&B.”
Casa Lima has great character and a very helpful and friendly staff. The room and private bath was just fine. The only drawback was poor water pressure in the shower and water that was just warm, not hot. Parking is on the street, so don't leave valuables in the car.
“Quiet and Comfortable”
This was a lovely and very reasonably priced B&B. We were just staying one night before we were picked up for a three-day white-water rafting adventure, so it was perfect. They have a kitchen on premises, but it is closed for dinner. When we asked for a suggestion where we might go for dinner, the owner said, "You don't need to go anywhere - we'll fix dinner for you." There is a monkey, some lizards, and other wildlife in the tropical outdoor bar area.
“Great jumping off point for your CR vacation!”
All in all it was a great experienced. Nelson and his staff was friendly and helpful with all are needs. The courtyard was beautiful with lots of wildlife all around. It was great start to our Costa Rican honeymoon! Exactly what we were looking for!
“Laid Back, Friendly”
This is a small hotel that's good for a quiet, relaxed time on vacation. Staff is friendly and they learn your name. It's run very casually.
“It's a beautiful little B&B, but . . .”
Casa Lima is a beautiful little B&B in a quiet neihgborhood about three blocks off the main street, behind the American Embassy. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful, even if you don't speak much Spanish. It has a nice open-air garden in the interior court. The dining tables are in the entrance breezeway next to the garden. Everything is very clean and well maintained. The rooms are beautiful. But. . . there was too much background noise for me to sleep very well the two nights I stayed there. There is a waterfall in the garden that ran full blast all night, both nights I was there. My first night, what sounded like an air-conditioning unit was also running all night. My second night, the wind was rattling a large piece of corrogated plastic intermittently all night. If this type of noise doesn't bother you, by all means try it. You'll probably like it if you like this type of accommodation. But I think I will try somewhere else next time, and hope I get a quieter place that is just as homey.
