Casa Conde Hotel & Suites
Ranked #32 of 78 Hotels in San Jose
Reviewed 16 August 2017

After reading some negative reviews, I didn't see this hotel as outdated or even 'budget style', we paid £120 for 2 nights for a 2 bedroom apartment, each room with a double bed, kitchen area with washer/drying, oven, kettle etc. A living room with TV, considering how much you would have to pay for this sort of room in the UK or somewhere in Europe very good value. It is out of the way and you do need to drive or get taxis, we stayed here after a busy 3 weeks travelling from Guatemala to San Jose and just wanted somewhere to relax and thats what we got, hot tub was lovely, had in room massages! The food was nice, the staff were nice. there is a bar but when we stayed it was quiet, there were only me and my friend in there! The pool is not heated so us quite a shock if you jump in unknowingly! Not somewhere you would stay if you wanted to be close to the city and had a big itinerary of things to do!

Dear Levi,
Thank you so much for staying with us. It was a pleasure to host you. We strive for our service to be the best and we are glad it didn't go unnoticed and that you were treated like home. We are an oasis close to the city where you can have rest and relaxation with great amenities, and as you mention a comfortable suite with two bedrooms, kitchen, living room and dining area.

We hope to see you again very soon!

Best regards,

This former mental asylum turned into a hotel has all the interesting history and folklore of Costa Rica, no professional hotel staff, everything has the Costa Rican "Ticos" style a mix of good hearted and naive souls. The decoration is ethnic, artisanal and minimalistic. There is no elevator so prepare to carry your luggage to the second floor if you are located there. The food is served in a buffet, standard Costa Rican Menu, nothing elaborated, the pool, cultural decorations and the gardens are pretty, but the place needs a big repair and better cleanliness standards. The rooms are like little apartments with a kitchen, dining room and 2 bedrooms. The ambience has a sadness of times gone and an old melancholy. Outside the walls and gate of the hotel the strangers look suspicious, don't step outside of Casa Conde Hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at building number 1 that view to the central plaza of the hotel and on the first floor.

Dear Maria,
As you experienced, we are a colonial hotel with all the modern comforts: Spacious suites equipped with a kitchen, living and dining room areas, one restaurant, bar among others.

Our outdoor pool and patios have amazing gardens where you can view Costa Rica's beautiful flora.
Our hotel is just outside the city center, in a local quaint neighborhood, just steps away from La Paz Park.

Best regards,

Great hotel with amazing food. Let me just say the buffet breakfast is by far the most amazing thing. Such variety of fresh hearty food. They have a garden that grows real fruits. The pool area is amazing although the water was wayyyy to cold. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa with full kitchen, dinning area, and living room. No tvs in the bedrooms. Just one in thw livingroom which was fine. Villa was very clean although thwy didnt seem to know what a wash rag was., kinda weird. The front desj attendant was extremely hwlpful and friendly. He even helped me work on my spanish by holf conversations with me in spanish and correcting and mistakes i made. Loved tgis place will definately stay here again.

Looks beautiful from the outside and in pictures. Pool and Jacuzzi were nice. The room is very worn and outdated. Not attractive, although clean. Beds were comfortable. Full kitchen is nice - but absolutely no cookware/dishes/silverware provided. Worst was an overwhelming smell of insecticide. The only reason to stay here is if you have some reason to be in the immediate area.

People here know English and Spanish, and are very friendly. It rains a lot but every problem that arises they solve within seconds. Service is amazing and the bar inside is even more awesome with all kinds of fresh fruit drinks! Awesome pool and definitely the best place around!
