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 SJ. Walking distance to top restaurants, gastropubs, galleries, shops, museums, parks and the University of Costa Rica. Scrumptious breakfast. Gracious and knowledgeable hosts.

Darrylle is the perfect host. He provides you with everything you could possibly need from the moment you book. An extremely interesting man too - some of his stories are absolutely fascinating. Plenty of places to eat and drink around his suburb - listen to his recommendations as we had some delicious seafood. Half an hour walk into town or a $4 Uber.

Darrylle is wonderful. He is welcoming, warm, friendly and very kind. We enjoyed his home and our conversations with him. The space is very safe, clean, spacious and tranquil. It is about 15min from downtown (by car) and 30min by foot. His home is located in East San Jose and the neighborhood is well taken care of and safe. We enjoyed walking around the area. There are many restaurants, pubs, and cafes within walking distance if you are willing to wander. Breakfast was delicious and comforting. If you're looking for a home away from home this is the place for you. Darrylle is more than willing to help with recommendations and reservations if needed. Thank you so much for your help and a great experience.

Darrylle was a great host. Very easy to communicate with and gave us exact instructions to find the place. The room and bathroom were very spacious and clean and Darrylle was extremely nice and accommodated for my friends early flight out the next day. He also provided us with ways to get around the city and to the airport. The location is great too. Walkable to the city but far enough so thats its nice and quiet and it is in a very safe neighborhood. I highly recommend staying here.

Great house and great host. Even we had to leave by 6 in the morning, Darrylle and Kanti were still very kind to prepare breakfast for us. The house is also super nice. Strongly recommend!

Darrylle & Kanti are wonderfull hosts and excellent companions - worm, hospitable, generouse, intelligent! We enjoyed staying in their house immensly! And we'll remember it forever. Alex and Anna.
