About this area

San Jose

Located in San Jose, Hemingway Inn is near a metro station and near the boardwalk. San Pedro Mall and Multiplaza Mall Escazu are worth checking out if shopping is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Morazan Park and National Park. Check out an event or a game at Costa Rica National Stadium (Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica), and consider making time for Ojo de Agua Spa Park, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the bed & breakfast's central location.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service

The owner was very friendly and helpful, the hotel is simple, but has some kind of originality, which also helps to create a feeling of adventure. The location is great, just steps away from downtown.
