New!!... Fully equipped , refurnished one bedroom apartment, ideal if you come for vacation, have to work , come for medical turism or if you just want to know the feeling of living in San José. It is located in the Hotel Area of Downtown, but it is not a hotel, is your home away from home. Located on the 5th floor of the building it has a great view to the north side of town.
You can count on having everything you need for a light breakfast, there is also a laundry room and assigned laundry day. Sorry no maid!!... but if you plan on a long stay we can arrange for one to come once a week for an extra charge.
Interaction with Guests
I will meet you when you arrive to hand you the keys and show you the apartment , if I can not do so the building manager will be there. He is a very nice guy, doesn't speak english but manages to communicate with you. If there is any need he will call me at your request.
If you have to leave early morning there is a drop box where you can leave the keys.
I will be just a message or phone call away just in case anything comes up or if you need any instructions on moving around San José.
The apartment is located near hotels, restaurants,parks and museums it is in a nice side of town, but it is best you follow instructions to get around since, like any other city, from one block to another it can get ugly. I recommend you study the map and you will be more then fine getting around. Like any city that you are getting to know you should never be over confident, when you arrive I will be more than happy to give you some instructions also so you can get around safely. If I can not greet you personally at your arrival please send me a message if there is any doubt on your location( please use the maps you find in this add in " Getting Around". The place is just three blocks away from central avenue where you can find very nice shops a nice street walk, and see the beautiful National Theater or the Mail Building which are one of the land marks in San José. You might want to go take a peak at the Hotel Costa Rica, which is the first hotel built in San Jose in the early 1900's.
If you are coming in, in a rental car there is a 24 hour parking lot just 50 meters away (the building doesn't have parking lot). If you have access in your phone to internet it is much easier to get around Costa Rica with an app called Waze.
If that's not your case and If you want to go to other places in San José , or even if you are going to the beaches or volcanoes, the bus stations are located very close.
I also recommend you go to the Hotel Aurola Holiday Inn, which is only two blocks away and book a one day tour , there is plenty of places that you can visit and return the same day.
You can also take a taxi outside the main door, and within a 15 to 20 minute ride you can go either to the west side or the east side of the city, where you can find all the exclusive shopping malls.
You can find in the apartment a map of San José that will help you to get around, but I highly recommend that when you first arrive and want to go out to get to know the city, take a left from the main door and at the first street light take a right towards Central Avenue (three blocks), you can begin exploring around from that point on.
Either the international airport or the national airport are within a 25 minute ride.
Other Things to Note
You can ask for a roller bed for another guest with no extra charge. There is a community laundry room and it will be available to you only upon request, so if you need it please let me know so I can arrange date and time for you to use is.

No Smoking allowed... If you need to use the laundry room you may do so, but should ask for availability. Love pets but the place is not right for them , sorry about that!
