This airbnb is the best. The location is perfect, very near Parque Sabana and the stadium. The accomodations are superb. Even though it is in the city, it is quite quiet. Our queen bed was comfortable. There are 4 other guest rooms. The common area is very large with a nice sitting area and several dining tables and chairs. We enjoyed eating at the table on one of the 2 private balconies. The kitchen has all things necessay to cook in house if you want. There are designated areas with ample space for individual supplies. We were very happy to have found this place. The hosts live nearby and are very helpful. They speak many languages and can answer all your questions. We highly recommend this airbnb and hope to stay here again.

Alexis & James were fantastic hosts. Via 'Instant Book' we were able to book only half an hour before our arrival (we couldn't book in advance as we were not confident with our travel plans due to hurricane Otto). We were welcomed in, shown around the house and bedroom, we were also notified of the necessary info re wifi (iffy connection in bedroom), shared areas, keys and breakfast plans. Breakfast works fantastically well, you can just help yourselves to the provisions provided, cereals, toast, eggs, fruit, a variety of spreads, teas etc. My partner had an earlier flight than myself so we were due to leave at different times, Alexis & James let me stay until I needed to leave for the airport later that afternoon. James also made me a ginger drink as he could tell I wasn't feeling well, so thoughtful! James had tried to arrange an airport shuttle for me for 1pm but the driver was not available, so James took me himself for the same price, what a life saver. The area is so lovely, a completely different experience than the area of San Jose we had stayed in the week previously. The apartment building is lovely and the pictures dont do the place justice. We were recommended a place for drinks and dinner, and thoroughly enjoyed both. We would definitely stay again if we find ourselves in San Jose.

I thought I would have to wait for a trip to Canada to enjoy Canadiens hospitality, but I was wrong. I found this Canadian couple (Québécois ) who were really great hosts. They speak English, Spanish and French, and are extra helpful with advise from the local scene. Will stay again in next trip to CR.

Alexis and James were wonderful hosts and their place was just perfect. I'll tell you why: 1. Location - great access to downtown San Jose, shopping areas such as Multiplaza and the major hospitals and medical services. 2. Security - totally safe and secure with secure parking as well. 3. Comfort - the hosts think of everything to make you comfortable - nice bathroom, bed, fans, television, desk - everything is very convenient. 4. Ambiance - the place is just lovely! The building is bright, airy and open with many windows and beautiful views. It is decorated in an elegantly traditional style, yet eclectic, with the feel of world travel. 5. Space - although our room was not large, there are various lovely open public spaces to sit and read or converse with other travelers. 6. Convenience - A large shared kitchen is available to all. It is fully equipped and they provide coffee, cereal and eggs for you to cook, as well. It is all very well organized with private kitchen storage space for each person. Alexis and James were always there with a smile, to help offering info on where to go and what to do in Costa Rica. They seem to have a genuine concern for each of their guests. And though they are there when you need them, they never impose and we always we had privacy. Residence La Paz provided a great value and pleasant experience for us. I highly recommend it.
