Property Description

Welcome to your home in prime downtown area. Where HISTORY, ART, CULTURE, PARTY & LEASURE TIME ALL COLLIDE !!

Stay in our 1950's Spanish Revival style jewel centrally located in the heart of San José´s downtown historic district and right across the street from Parque Nacional. La California & Escalante nightlife, shops, Art History museums, bars & restaurants are just moments away!! Taxis, trains and buses are within walking distance and are readily available to transport you to your next destination.

There is no other private residence this close to the spectacular and statuesque park. In fact, the neighborhood is the park. Upon entering, you quickly realize you've traveled back to the old days of grandeur and style.

A cascading staircase greets you in the foyer and a featured chandelier lights the elegant sitting area with a view of our indoor garden. Take time to look around the house and get a feel for the period in which it was built.
As far as night life is concerned, Barrio California in San Jose has got more restaurants and bars per square meter than anywhere else in the city. We are a stone's throw from The National Theatre and all of the major National Museums.

The guesthouse finds itself as a favorite amongst artists and musicians. The Central American Symphony members consider Casa del Parque their home when they play the National Theatre. Folk artists, dance troupes and popular bands from neighbouring countries return again and again while touring in San Jose.

For those travelers that might want to veer from typical budget hostel or party hostel environment and feel the real magic of a Costa Rican experience, our multilingual staff can guide you in any direction you may want to travel.
We offer free: WI-FI, luggage storage, fresh Costa Rican coffee and tea, cable TV, kitchenette, stereo and CD player and some of the best advice in town.

It's okay for one night if you are leaving right away but atmosphere and layout are just weir. Also the washroom is just odd.

There is a resurant really close to some private rooms, and the restaurant play music until 00:00 , there is no way to sleep there. In some dorms the sun is very strong in the morning (around 7) and there is no curtain so it's really hot and woke us up early.
