A bit of paradise in the city, Casa Abierta is one of the most highly recommended B&B's in San Jose. Elegant home in the heart of quiet and safe Barrio Dent/Escalante, considered by locals to be the "in" neighborhood in central San Jose. Walking distance to top restaurants, gastropubs, galleries, shops, museums, parks and the University of Costa Rica. Scrumptious breakfast. Gracious and knowledgeable hosts.

The space
Relax and immerse yourself in the beauty of our home's tranquil, multi-cultural, warm, and welcoming ambiance with its handcrafted furnishings, collection of local art, and lovely garden and fountain with its constant array of visiting birds. Enjoy interesting conversations, sleep in quiet elegance, and breakfast on fresh tropical fruits, local delicacies, homemade bread and jams, organic cereals, yogurts, and rich Costa Rican coffee.

Poas is a spacious, high-ceilinged, beautifully furnished room with a queen bed. If Poas room does not appear available check all our listings.

The first floor consists of a great room (living room and dining room with an adjoining garden and patio), a guest bath, a large modern kitchen with all appliances and utensils, a pantry, a laundry room, and our Barva room. Upstairs there is a den/library and our Poas and Irazu rooms and Orosi Suite. The downstairs floors are covered with a warm terra cotta tile while the upstairs floors and built-ins are all of fine Costa Rican hardwoods. The home is decorated in rich earth tones and features hand-carved woods, mimbre, wrought iron, fine fabrics and carpets, and a collection of multi-cultural art. Almost all of the furniture was handmade in either Honduras or Costa Rica. There is high-speed wireless internet service throughout the home.

Guest access
Although the rooms we offer are private spaces, the rest of the home is available for you to enjoy throughout your stay. Interesting conversations, local recommendations, and daily breakfasts are included. Laundry services are available upon request.

Other things to note
If you have any questions, concerns, booking problems or any of the rooms appear unavailable send us a message, and we will do our best to accommodate you. We can book transportation, tours and assist you with other needs. We are happy to help you in any way. Just ask!

Why stay in the suburbs, far from cultural activities requiring expensive taxi rides through heavy traffic to get to where you want to go?

Considered by locals to be the “in” neighborhood in the heart of the city, we are centrally located, safe, quiet and within walking distance to both the city center and the University of Costa Rica. Within a few blocks of our home, you will find the most popular restaurants and gastro-pubs in the city along with an abundance of galleries, museums, parks, theaters, cinemas, shopping areas and excellent public transportation. At the end of our street is a lovely park that runs along a creek for several blocks.
