Expected more after reading reviews that said things like "boutique hotel." perhaps the terrace rooms are much nicer than what we got ( we only stayed one night so were given a very basic room with a tiny bathroom). Wasn't bothered by any train but by an infernal racket at a nightclub next door. Expect this is only a problem...

Casa 69 fits the definition of a Boutique Hotel very well. We have rooms of various sizes, many of which have been recently remodelled. The rooms are bright, cheery, and we have incorporated many paintings from local artists. The pictures on the web site provide a testimonial to this, and we always hear very positive comments regarding the rooms and...

My boyfriend and I liked this little spot so much we went back to San Jose for 3 nights during our month long trip. If you are an animal lover this is the hotel for you. There are several house cats living at the hotel. They are very friendly and beautiful. We have 3 at home and really loved having...

My family arrived late in the afternoon due to not being able to find Casa 69--even with GPS, we drove by it no less than five times. So, make sure you get the names of the bars located next door. The locals could not tell us where it was, even though we had them call (three times) and ask for...

So it was noisy. Other than than, it was wonderful. Very cosy with just nine rooms, beautiful gardens, safe and secure, includes continental breakfast. You can also order a full breakfast for $5.00. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would give this hotel a 5star except for a few things. It is adjacent to the railroad tracks and...

We stayed at Casa 69 for 3 nights and were very impressed. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The bathroom was nice, lots of hot water, and good pressure. The bed was very comfortable. We went to Limoncellos for dinner and the food was very good at a reasonable price. The staff was very helpful and even gave us...

Casa 69, a Boutique Hotel/B&B, was our first stop in San Jose. Ralph, Lola and others were very hospitable and helpful. Our room was bright and clean; great coffee and fresh fruit for breakfast. Casa 69 is also located within comfortable walking distance of the National Museum, the National Theatre and the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum. In the downtown area Central...

Stayed there again for a pit stop on the way home on our last trip. The owner, Donna, was out of town but there were a couple new hires who took great care of us. Needed a 4am wake up call to get to the airport and we were pleasantly surprised with not only a wake up knock on our...

We've been staying at this B and B for four years now-have made three trips to San Jose-and it's definitely the best place to stay in terms of service and value.

It took us forever to find this hotel (we were driving), and when we finally found the place, we almost decided not to go see the room (the blue door and neon 69 are not the most attractive), but we were very glad we stayed! The room we stayed in (king size bed and queen size bed with private terrace)...
