A Colossal Place To Ttay
My wife and I spent 7 days in Elena’s beautiful apartment. It was exactly as described. There is a small grocery store under the building and a larger AMPM store (think 7-11) 80 metres 100 away. The PALI grocery store ( much larger) was only three blocks away.Elena was most hospitable and made sure everything was in order upon check in, asked if we needed any assistance or suggestions and helped me with my Spanish. The pool is great and sunsets on the roof are excellent. Two TVs, one in the lounge room had essentially Spanish speaking shows, but the one in the bedroom seemed to have mostly English speaking shows and movies.
A $4 taxi ride took us to Aveneda Central, the great walking street in San Jose, and close to parks and museums. It was a breezy but sunny day, and the city was alive with a cacophony of sights sounds and smells. Buskers everywhere, blokes with loud speakers selling their wares at full voice, sirens abound as well and the ubiquitous car horns. It was great to be alive.
One of our visits was the Mercado de Nacional Artesernals where everything Costa Rican can be found souvenir wise and bartering is expected and a fun place to visit. There is so much to see and do in San Jose and Elena’s place is a great starting point.
When we return to Costa Rica (not if) we will definitely stay at Elena’s again.
Muchas Gracias Elena.

Once again - perfect!
Thanks for the opportunity to stay again on your property Elena!
Very nice and clean place!!!
We loved this chic apartment - don't miss staying here!
Our host Elena was very helpful and the apartment was well equipped and beautifully decorated. We loved the neighborhood, great restaurants within 4-5 blocks and we actually walked to downtown San Jose to explore the Mercado Centro and the D'Oro Museum. This is a great value for the amenities, including rooftop deck and pool. I would highly recommend staying here, it is very secure and Elena does everything to help answer questions.
Wonderful experience in San Jose
My husband and I stayed 2 nights in Elena's apartment and could not have been happier. It is centrally located, incredibly clean and has all of the amenities that we needed. It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel - and the bed was incredibly comfortable. If we ever are able to go back to San Jose, we will definitely look to book again.
Super downtown condo
This was a great place to stay for our week in San Jose. Lots of upgrades compared to other places we've stayed - bigger tv's, better microwave, convection/toaster oven, Kuerig coffee maker for example. As others have said, Elena was very attentive and checked several times to see if we needed anything. The keyless front door lock was a nice convenience since we didn't have to worry about a door key.
We've been to Costa Rica several times and this trip was partially to experience San Jose. We are walkers and the weather cooperated so we were able to walk everywhere. Within about a half hour walk we visited the National Theatre, National Museum and the Jade Museum. Paseo Colon is four or five blocks away and a Pali grocery store is another block or two along the Paseo. So it was easy to stock up on food.
We would certainly stay here again when in San Jose.
100 Meters from a fresh fruit market - on the first floor there is a small shop for the basics.
Wifi - Flat Screen TV - Washer Dryer - Air Conditioning
We would be happy to answer any questions as I grew up in San Jose and have infinite local knowledge.
