Memory foam mattress topper. Wireless Internet (2Mbps), Guest Computer, Bar, PS3, wall-mounted TV w/Netflix, jacuzzi shower. Very modernized.
The condo is a 3BR/2BA. I live in one room, and occasionally have a guest in the middle (shared) room and/or the first (private bath).
Your room is a 18x12 with shared bathroom. The room has a TV (no cable) with PS3, stereo and a small closet.
Bed is a normal twin size bed with a tempurpedic-grade 4" mattress topper brought from the US.
Room is not facing the street so traffic noise is minimal (though we are downtown, so anywhere you stay will have SOME traffic noise).
If you are visiting San Jose for business or pleasure, there is no better deal than this.

Usually I work from the bedroom during the day, and go out in the evening. There are some occasions where I may be out of the country, however there is a house manager for the days I'm not here.
Bario Amon is mostly the "art district" in the daytime and the "party district" in the night time. A LOT of the historic downtown stuff is located within 5 minutes of walking and within 60 seconds in a taxi.
You are within 3 blocks of a major bank, grocery store, exit highway, and a LOT of bars/restaurants.
For those of you who have been here, we are 1 block from Little Havana, 6 blocks from Sportsmans Lodge, and 6 blocks from Hotel Del Ray.
About 3 blocks up you have access to nearly ALL local bus stops. The Coca Cola bus station (trips out of San Jose to the rest of Costa Rica) is a $3/5min taxi ride from the condo. In other words, this is an EXTREMELY convenient location.
NOISE - We are downtown. Your room is NOT facing the street and is isolated a bit, however if the AC is off, you may hear some traffic. My room overlooks the street so I keep my fans on, but in your case, if you keep the AC fan running, you will hear nearly nothing. In 6 years I have never heard a single guest. The walls here are THICK.
NIGHT TIME - In any city, the downtown areas can be a little unnerving at night. San Jose is no different. Just be aware of your surroundings, take the red taxis, and you should be fine.
PHONE - If you bring a phone and expect to use it, it needs to be UNLOCKED and it MUST WORK on the AT&T network. If you want to get a pre-paid phone chip, you can use iPhone 3/4 but ONLY if they are the AT&T versions (Verizon WILL NOT WORK). I have a friend that rents an iPhone 3 for $10 per day and you are responsible for a $150 (refundable) deposit plus whatever you charge the phone with (usually $2 a day is good).

My second time at Scott's was as pleasing as the first one.
Staying at Scott's was really nice. He has a really cool place, well located. He and his teammates are really friendly and welcoming. They make sure everything is alright.
It is also easy to change your reservation if you need to.
The apartment is really cosy and well equipped.
Scott and his unit were the perfect place for us while staying in San Jose. His unit is located in a safe building in a location very near downtown and super accessible for bus stations, site seeing downtown and the like. If you're looking for a safe, convenient, modern (hot water - a rarity from our travels throughout Costa Rica) place to stay you've found it with Scott's penthouse apartment!!!
The location is great, a short walk to everything downtown San Jose. The apartment is great too, spacious and with everything one might need. And Scott is a fantastic host too, who always had some good advice and helped me out with some logistical details. Would come back any time :)
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
