I was in Escazu to visit friends, and chose this hotel based on price and TA reviews. I was pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Registration was simple and quick, the room was clean, comfortable, and with a nice view, and the hotel was very quiet while I was there. The service was very friendly and professional, even when...

Quite good during the 4th of July Weekend. TIL that the expats in Escazu have had a fireworks display for the past 50 years. The show from the balcony of the Out of Bounds Hotel was a full on blast of explosive colors and booming sounds. Breakfast is basic but plentiful. More important, the yummy coffee was available at will....

We dropped in around 4pm on a Sunday and the person working didn't seem to know if they had rooms available and seemed uninterested in helping us until we said we needed two rooms. He showed us the rooms and told us the price and when we agreed he then gave us keys and sent us on up to the...

This is a great budget b&b. There are only 5 rooms. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is good. Nothing fancy, but a good clean room for a good price. The Taj Mahal restaurant across the street has good food.

We stayed for one night before our return flight from San Jose. We didn't see the hotel during the day but the night view over San Jose from our balcony was breathtaking. The hotel was virtually empty because of Easter and we checked in later that we said at the time we did the reservation. We had trouble finding the...

It's finding places like this that make TripAdvisor such an incredible tool. Decided to use this hotel as my San Jose bridge between Quepos and the airport. Stayed here two separate nights (one before going to Quepos, one after I got back) and I was truly impressed with the service and with the hotel. Fernando is an amazing host and...

Nice little B&B away from the city center. Great views, free wifi and delicious breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was a great place to stay before we started our adventures around Costa Rica.

As others have mentioned, the two things that make this place shine are the wonderful view out across the city and of the surrounding mountains, and the manager, Fernando. The room was fine, quiet and clean, with a great shower. Fernando was great, always willing to offer assistance or answer questions. There is also free calls to the U.S. which...

I stayed at the Out of Bounds Hotel for three nights and found the room to be very clean with a comfortable bed, and a nicely appointed room.
