You will ♥ it! Casa Conde has it all...

Hotel rooms are full apartments fully equiped even washer and dryer. Staff is very friendly, efficient,knowledgable in their own field and corteous and not in a fake like manner; true to heart and dedicated to their craft. Hotel is impecable and set up like a Spanish colonial village. Many gatherings and functions such as weddings, industry meetings, baby showers and family reunions are very well orchestrated making this village buzzing and alive. Too many good points to write in such a small space. Eight short kilometers from the city center and an army of inexpensive taxis will get you in the middle of what you are looking for in San Jose or anywhere else in Costa Rica with the diverse tours offered by Casa Conde.

Unsafe neighborhood

Bad location. Too far from town. Unsafe neighborhood. All neighboring houses and businesses had burglar bars on windows and doors. Could not walk around outside compound in day or night. Rooms was small and musty. Thank goodness the staff was nice and a good restaruant. Would not recommend this hotel.

A Pleasant Retreat

Excellent dining in a pleasant environment; friendly English speaking staff; a variety of room types with kitchens; but surrounded by a neighborhood not inviting to pedestrians. Taxi service readily available, but hard for a foreign driver to locate the entrance. However, a good place to meet with a group tour, as we did.

Great for Business Travel

Ambiance was wonderful, flowers & vegitation, the art, artifacts, It was friendly, well maintained, with conseige services, great gym, pool and a great breakfast. It is a hotel were people come and go and not a resort type of a stay which makes it harder to meet new people, good for business travel.

If you take a cab make sure they have a meter system, otherwise fare varies from $6 to $10 for the same trip.

Sweetly hidden away Casa Conde San Jose

Christmas vacation in San Jose and all over Costa Rica started at Casa Conde IN San Jose. Glad we had a GPS, or we would not have found Casa Conde!! It's quaintly hidden in the middle of a questionable neighborhood (even though we did walk to a near-by park safely). Staff is VERY friendly. I was frustrated that the pool was always taken over by a party that didn't seem to have anything to do with actual guests of the hotel. Food was very good...wonderful breakfast every morning! The hotel itself is very beautiful. I would suggest a better set of furniture for seating in the small den of the hotel room, but was very pleased with the two separate rooms, the kitchenette and the laundry facility IN the hotel room...wonderful! We were able to get some washing done. Felt very safe within this 'compound-like' wonderland. I was very disappointed that the gorgeous jacuzzi was COLD...was so looking forward to a warm place to sit and relax after a day in San Jose. It never did warm up.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Short walk to the nearby park, through a grassy field along a walking path where locals go to exercise and picnic. You'll see horses, vendors selling their goods, families on Saturdays, and over the walking bridge there is a park for kids to play, other vendors, a spot to ride horses, a peace monument in the middle of a lake, etc. For you bikers, there is also a velodrome (my husband had to check that out).

Good food

Can't really walk around the neighborhood, but hotel area was secure. Dinner and breakfast were outstanding. One of our rooms had a washer and dryer which was very helpful. 25 minutes to the airport, really needed GPS to find this hotel.

Wonderful Stay

Personal service; staff extremely helpful and would go out of their way for our enjoyment. Resteraunt food was five star; staff was helpful and very friendly. I loved this place and would go back again. Too far away for beach goers, but enjoyed mountains, rain forest, coffee plantations, volcano tour, city tour; our purpose was to see how we might like retiring to this area, and we were impressed.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

If this is your first time take a few tours. We actually hired a driver on our fourth day and directed him on our own tour of Escarzu and surrounding areas for sightseeing, dining and shopping for about twelve dollars an hour. You probably don't want to rent a car and do your own driving; hiring a driver was informative, affordable, and enjoyable. The location of the hotel was fine for us, but if you like the beaches it's too far away.

terrible neighborhood

It's very difficult to find, and the staff while very friendly when we finally arrived could not providw clear directions, either to the hotel or to the airport the next day. The compound itself is nice but the room itself, while ample and full of amenities like extended cable, laundry, and 2 bedrooms, feels like a model home, with cheaply constructed furniture including a smelly couch. Would not spend more than 1 night here, the less time the better.

If driving your own car, get clear directions via email before attemtping to find this place. Best to go by taxi.
