Room was clean and quaint. The owner was very helpful. Not really any to do at property but it is very well located to the heart of San Jose. I walked everywhere I went. Within 3.5 miles of 2 malls. San Jose is a very friendly pedestrian city.

Room is basic, celling fan was a pleasant surprise. Bed was comfortable. Room and bathroom clean. The amenitities are not really there. Supposedly a kitchen is available but I did not use it. The location for the price is great. I left every day and returned just before dark. Located downtown San Jose near a lot of interesting places. Great...

The staff were very kind and attentive! We had our baby with us (and consequently some extra luggage) and everyone was very accommodating. They made sure we had everything we needed during our stay, and helped us plan our onward travel. The guesthouse is right in the middle of the city so you can easily walk to some great places,...

Spent just one night here as we used San Jose only as an entry and exit point to Costa Rica. This is a very affordable alternative, the place is comfy, clean and it is only two blocks away from the National Museum.

Like if you were at a acquitance place, you have your own key for the house so you come and go as pleased. The lady at the front desk is super kind. Quiet and clean place for resting. Just few steps from downtown.

We spent 2 nights in San Jose while traveling from Granada, Nicaragua to Tortuguero. Originally we had only booked 1 night at Casa Leon but decided to take an extra day to recoup from the intense travel schedule. We found Casa Leon to be a good place to sleep though we didn't spend much time there otherwise. Patrick, the owner...

I spend there just one night, my first night in Costa Rica. The room was nice, clean and not noisy. The bathroom was clean as well. The lady (owner) is really nice, it has been the best local behaviour that I received. She recommended me a restaurant to have dinner and the food there was awesome and cheap (and around...

Location is close to ave central which is the main street that allows you to walk to a lot of great places. Caveat is that the hotel is next to rail tracks so you'll hear the train at 530am. The price is good so if you plan on waking early then it doesn't matter

The Hotel Casa Leon is a great place to stay in San Jose. We spent two separate one night stays (flight in and out) and this was one of the best maintained and pleasant places we had stayed. We had two separate rooms and they were both cosy and clean. Patrick was very helpful during our stay and arranged a...
