Stayed here last April for a few nights. Clean rooms, great breakfast, great staff- very helpful with directions and suggestions for food. Excellent communication from point of booking on. We really enjoyed our stay- would go back if ever my travels take me to Escazu.

I had no idea what to expect when I booked this place. I had a good feeling from the start, as emails where answered promptly.

Small boutique hotel in fairly quiet neighborhood. Comfortable public areas. Very home-like with house dog and trampoline. Simple but very clean rooms. Excellent breakfast included with several great options. Very reasonable prices. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Amazing view of the city.

This is a beautiful old property in San Jose, Escazu District. Though a little frayed and worn around the edges, it is very nice. Free wifi, free breakfast, and an exceptional staff. Some minor fixes and a little upgrading and it would be a 5-star facility.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 capitol, 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 accomodate 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. ... more   less
