CASA LIMA is a gem!Posted Feb 23, 2014
Located in an upscale area, within waling distance of restaurants and a bit of shopping. Fantastic service by owner NELSON and a friendly staff. They can't do enough for you. Several guests were return or long-term folks and you can' t have any better reference than that. We highly recommend this place and want to return.

Friendly, welcoming bed and breakfastPosted Aug 21, 2013
Pros: The customer service, the welcoming atmosphere, the beautiful interior of the lobby/courtyard, and large rooms.
Cons: Wish there would have been some sort of protein with the breakfast, such as cheese for the delicious, warm rolls.
Location: Quiet street near the U.S. Embassy. Banks, shopping, groceries, restaurants and gas station in walking distance.
The customer service at Casa Lima is wonderful. Nelson was very welcoming, and called me by name as I walked in the door to check in, having never met me before. Gabriel was awesome, and treated us like family. Our family enjoyed having a monkey, 2 cats, a parrot, and other animals in the open courtyard. The family suite was great because it was 2 separate rooms, each with its own bathroom and entry door. Our daughters appreciated having 2 twin beds instead of 1 double bed in their room. We really felt like we were at home while staying there. They gave us suggestions for excursions, arranged a reasonably-priced taxi for our trip to the airport, and called the rental car agency regarding the return of our car. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. Shops, banks and restaurants are within walking distance.

One night before early flight from Tobias airportPosted Aug 20, 2013
Pros: Good location, clean, friendly staff.
Cons: The monkey and birds were close to the dinning room. I didn't like smelling them while I ate.
Location: Close to Tobias Bolano airport and American Embassy.
The rooms are basic but clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had pizza and pasta, both were very good. I would stay here again for one night. The rooms are close together, but the air conditioning provides "white noise" to help drown out noise.

Great jumping off point for your CR vacation!Posted May 1, 2013
Pros: The courtyard and the wonderful staff
Cons: If I had to pick something i guess it would be they didn't sell beer, but that wasn't that bad.
Location: It was near plenty of shops, banks, resturants, and the american embassy.
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!

Safe, WelcomingPosted Mar 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
I was just in town overnight. It was a safe neighborhood to walk around. Close to stores, pharmacies, US Embassy (hopefully you don't need to seem them). Staff was friendly, helpful with tips and coordinating activities/transportation. I would prefer not to stay in San Jose myself but many folks there stayed there as their home base and did day trips. Lots of animals around.

Nelson is the man!Posted May 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
Great time at Casa Lima -- THE PIZZA WAS DELICIOUS -- Nelson really knows the area and makes sure you are taken care of. The resident (rescue) monkey, Don Kiko, was very cute, and the courtyard is a very relaxing/beautiful space. Felt really SAFE staying there :) two thumbs up!
