Great staff, great bar/restaurant

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 21, 2010

La Amistad is a peaceful little oasis on the fringe of downtown San Jose. The front-desk staff tries hard to be helpful and the bar/restaurant is very nice. Say hello to Asta, the bar/restaurant manager if you visit there.
It's a short walk to the train station by Parque Nacional and only a few blocks to other beautiful downtown parks like Parques Espana and Morazan.
It's not the cheapest hotel in the area, but the prices are competitive.

Unique Quality: The laundry service is free. Please just tip your maid who will take it away and bring it back. They also offer free calls to the U.S. from your room.

Directions: One block west of the big Hospital Calderon Guardia. Most taxistas know the hotel, but they all know where the hospital is.

Costa Rica's Best place to stay

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

My wife and I have stayed several times at La Amistad Hotel Inn which is smack-dab in one of the most historic (colonial) central parts of San Jose (Barrio Amon). This area of central San Jose is very safe and quiet (http/hotelamistad.com) [info@hotelamistad.com]. La Amistad is quite historic in its own right and has a staff to welcome people from all over the world. The term "welcome" definitely applies -- from Owner, Matt Kinkelaar to the ladies preparing a delicious breakfast. English is spoken with clarity and with an attitude to genuinely help tourists and/or business people. The room accommodations (some semi apartments with kitchenettes) are newly furnished with good phone service, cable TV, computer room, and individual, well fitted bathrooms. Even the goldfish in the fountain are friendly (one is expecting since April 30). We paid $58.00 per night and would never think about staying at La Cuesta or any other hotel/B@B in San Jose. One great asset is La Amistad's location within several blocks of the well known Cafe Mundo. La Amistad can fix you up with a rent-car at competitive rates. My next trip there will be in July.

San Jose Centro - quiet barrio

by written on September 10, 2002

La Amistad Inn is one of the quietest places I've stayed in San Jose. It's located in Barrio Amon, close to Hospital Calderon Guardia (mention this to taxi drivers if they don't recognize the name of the Inn).

The breakfast is adequate and the rooms are nice. Negotiate for a better price or better accomodations!

Unique Quality: Quiet residential street

Directions: Taxi Directions: 100 metros al Oeste del Hospital Calderon Guardia, Entrada de Emergencia.
