We rent 3 rooms in our home, just 7 minutes from Airport, located in a safe residencial.
Buss Station very close, only 100 meters.
Best place for your arrival or departure at San Jose Airport. Safe place for car.
Lleguemos del aeropuerto tarde y ese casa está muy bien ubicada y fácil para encontrar. El cuarto es muy seguro, la casa limpia, todo corresponde a nuestros esperanzas.
My experience was "eh", and here's why...
Our shuttle came much earlier than expected from La Fortuna to San Jose, therefore we arrived at Wolfgang's place way before 'check in' time. The shuttle situation was completely out of our control and it was they only way we could get to San Jose, so we had to take the early shuttle.
The place is well tucked in a nice neighborhood and we were exhausted from our travels and major car sickness, we thought we'd see if it would be fine if we arrived early and hang out in the common area until our room was ready. We, two young females, had no where else to go and still feeling very sick from the shuttle ride. Upon arrival, the hired help let us into the living room and said in broken English that they would contact Wolfgang. Great! Not a problem for us, we were just thankful to sit and take off our heavy backpacks in the cool temp house and try to get over the car sickness.
We felt absolutely awful for arriving early as it was but when Wolfgang arrived he wasnt pleased that we arrived so early and was very adamant that we check in at the appropriate time. Fortunately the room was clean and ready for us so he reluctantly took us to our room. Because he was so displeased with us even being in the living room just reading a book, we felt like we should just stay in the room until our flight the next morning, 18hrs away. The place wasnt welcoming, bed was missing springs so we kept rolling off the edges and overall we just felt like we were a nuisance. Their cats were nice but I dont appreciate finding them under the covers in the bed. I was really frustrated and was expecting better. I was also expecting that the other travelers would all gather and talk or hang out, but the place didnt really invite that. Very sterile.
Now I'm sure that some of my feelings of this place was due to the language barrier and he didnt mean to come off that way. I'm sure he is very nice. Would I come back even if he was super friendly? I dont know if I would but I am willing to try again.
I'm sorry Wolfgang, I really wanted to like it there :(
The Lady that talked with you was the house maid and only speaks spanish.
We do you not try to speak another language when travelling im Latin America countries. Try to learn some spanish. We had a lot of guestes here and nobody had problems with the cats. Outr checkin time is after 3:00 P.M. and we gave you the room hours earlier, so what is the Problem?
The reservation was canceled 11 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Das Zimmer bei Wolfgang ist wirklich der ideale Ankunfts- und Abflugpunkt in Costa Rica. Man hat es vom Flughafen aus nicht weit und kann an seinem ersten Tag erst einmal ganz in Ruhe ankommen.
Wir haben auch ein paar Tipps von Ihm bekommen...in wieweit die für uns gut sind, werden wir im Verlauf der Reise noch sehen! ;)
Was mir nicht ganz so gefallen hat, war das Badezimmer, zumal das Duschwasser nur warm wurde, wenn man das Wasser nur minimal aufdreht...bei dem Versuch die Temperatur zu justieren habe ich zudem einen Schlag (website hidden) wo wir schon ein paar Tage hier in dem Land unterwegs sind, musste ich jedoch feststellen, dass die Sache mit dem warmen Wasser nicht nur bei Wolfgang ein Problem darstellt! :D
Von daher: Top Lage und für den Preis auch sonst alles super!
Es gibt nur leider diese Art von Duschen in ganz Costa Rica. Es gibt eine weitere Einstellung für heißeres Wasser, hättest Du uns etwas gesagt hätten wir das in 10 Sekunden einstellen können. Daher immer vor Ort melden und nicht hinterher reklamieren. Kommunikation ist alles.
Our stay at wolfgang's was perfect! We arrived after 9pm and wolfgang's son was there to greet us as soon as we pulled. The place was super nice just as shown. Great experience!
I chose the place due to its location. Great neighborhood. Very safe, even went jogging around the area by myself. There were also stores and restaurants nearby, within a 1 -2 km walk.
I don't even know where to start with Wolfgang. I corresponded with him via email trying to get "specific" directions, and all I got were terse replies from him. Ask someone. Look on GPS - I didn't have GPS.
When I arrived, he was abrasive and terse. Not at all warm and welcoming. He barked at me that the room wasn't ready and to put my bag in the corner. Ok. No problem. He barked he had to go send an email right away and disappeared. I went to sit down and when he returned he said I couldn't sit there because it is only for people working on lap tops and the common area is over there (just a few feet away)... Mind you - there was NO ONE there. It was just me, the house cleaner who was cleaning and him. Then he said, "well, it's ok to stay there now... but sit in the common area."
I didn't see the room, so I can't comment. It was a gated neighborhood off the highway, not far from the airport - the only reason I was staying there.
I went to lunch with a friend and when I returned I left. This is how unfriendly I thought he was, and I did NOT feel comfortable there at all. Maybe he is just someone who barks when he talks, but I don't care to be spoken to that way.
Mind you, he has 6 rooms he rents out - and this appears to be about money, not meeting new people and curiosity about others.
After two weeks of relaxing in CR, this was not a great way to end my stay. Fortunately, I went to my friend's and had a great time for my last 20 hours in CR.
We never had such a Person like you in our home, please read carefully all my other Reviews from guests all over the world, and here the Facts:
This Lady asked for early check in and we agreed that the can leave her luggage at 11:00 A M. We had to clean the room as other guests left the same time. She was waiting in the living room and asked for our WIFI Password and was two hours busy. Then she left the house without talking anything and even not saying goodby, very strange experience !!
