#1 of 12 hotels in Escazu
Posada El Quijote is a Spanish colonial inn set against a backdrop of spectacular views of Costa Rica's central valley and the city of San Jose.Situated atop the first hill 3.5 miles from the city center, Posada El Quijote is far enough to be in a comfortable country setting, free from the congestion and noise of the capital, but close enough to enjoy easy access to the city and its facilities. The recently refurbished hotel, with a history dating back to 1994, offers an alternative to the large hotel chains that have recently established themselves in the area; Large enough to accommodate groups, but small enough to offer a very homely, relaxed and personal atmosphere. The staff (and onsite owners) are always prepared to provide their best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

The views are great. But that's all this hotel has to offer. Everything else felt more like checking into a convalescent home, not a hotel. They locked it up tight at night, and had signs prohibiting sex workers from the property posted at check-in. It made me feel unsafe to stay there. The room itself felt more like I checked into someone's grandmother's converted garage. Comfortable enough, but also not cozy or well designed or decorated. I wouldn't stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 day for dental work. Beautiful property, clean and comfortable room. Breakfast provided-very tasty. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Alcides (desk clerk) went above and beyond when we hosted a small gathering. Will definitely stay here in the future.

...when we are welcomed by Iban and Al's smile as soon as they see that we are back, again, for the x-time. At our first San Jose visit, accidentially we found this small, cosy, old colonial style build hotel. From the minute we entered we felt at home, not only all we need is presented without additional costs or nerving staff. En contraire. Wlan, breakfast, spacious rooms with my own bathroom and so on..it is all a given.,,..Swiming in the pool after an exciting, hectic day at Big City Life San Jose, calming down, soothing, melting into the short but colourful picturesque sunset presented to us from wherever we stand swim or lay at the Posada. The 2 staff members Al and Iban are descrete, still, whatever we ask or wish for is easy handled by either one of them with a smile. Love it here. We will come to stay here whenever we are in San Jose. For travelling to and from Costa Rica la Posada is the best start and ending, the smoothest port entering or leaving La Pura Vida.

We had a very good experience at this hotel! It was nice and with a very service minded staff! We had been trough a terrible fire accident where we lost all our clothes so they offered us to wash our clothes for free - the little we had gotten. We also lost our key and they handled that professionally and kindly! The time we had to check-out was in the middle of the night so no transportation available so they offered to get us to the airport for a reasonable payment. We are very happy about our time there and the service and help they offered made it all so much easier and nicer! I will definitely recommend this place ! Intimate and quiet as well with a small pool and some games and books available if you feel like it!
