No title - expert review
One of the city's first guesthouses (technically it's three different houses), the Don Carlos has been in the same family for four generations. But the spirit of Carlos Bálser, the hotel's Liechtenstein-born founder - painter, geologist, archaeologist, and general jack-of-all-trades - lives o...

If you're looking for a small hotel that is unmistakably Costa Rican and hints at the days of the planters and coffee barons, this is the place for you. Located in an old residential neighborhood, only blocks from the business district, the Don Carlos is popular with both vacationers and businesspeo...

Regional Charm and a Great Location - user review
Charming hotel in the center of San Jose on a quiet side street. Very clean. Avoid rooms on the third floor as they can get very hot in the afternoon/evening (no A/C). Excellent English speaking staff (except for the evening bar/restaurant waiter who was overworked and surly). Gift shop is horribly ...

Great location for shopping, and overnights! - user review
In the heart of downtown for shopping, right next to a Bank to pay the Exit Tax, they lock the doors at night, you can still venture out at night, they will lock the lobby door behind you. Food is basic and cheap and the...

A great find - user review

Good location in San Jose made it easy to walk to areas of interest. The hotel also has a service to book additional ...

Treated like a Don - user review
Some of the most helpful front desk staff that I have ever encountered. Nice bonus is that dollars can be converted at any time! Unlike most hotels! It is worth the extra ten dollars for the room upgrade ... private balcony, two sofas, bigger bathroom and semi private parlor (room #10). I was in a r...

Loved it! - user review
This was a wonderful place to stay. The staff was excellent and very helpful. My room was enormous, clean and within walking distance to just about all the down town attractions. The art work and complementary cocktail were unexpected bonuses! It would be hard to find a better place to stay for the ...

Good place to eat - user review
I stay at the Hemingway Inn across the street because the rooms are 1/2 the price, but I go here to eat dinner or lunch because it's a 1 minute walk. The prices are very reason...

Value, Ambience, Shopping and GREAT coffee - user review
We've stayed at the Don Carlos about a dozen times now, and continue to favor it over other similar hotels in San Jose. The staff is great, amazingly helpful, and can set up any t...

Lovely experience - user review
The welcoming staff was delightful and the small cafe and 24 hr internet were nice touches. Some concern over being told that the neighborhood was not safe (repeatedly told this), but n...
