Lonely Planet review
Built around an early 20th-century house that once belonged to President Tomás Guardia, this lovely Barrio Amón inn exudes a slightly campy colonial-era vibe. Thirty-three rooms are nestled around a pre-Columbian–themed sculpture garden with a sundeck, tables and a small pool (ideal for kids). All rooms come equipped with cable TV, lockbox and hair dryer. Don’t miss the Spanish-tile mural, just outside the onsite restaurant, which beautifully depicts central San José in the 1930s. Credit cards accepted.
