The Hemingway Inn, located in the historic quarter of San José, provides an excellent location from which to explore museums, great restaurants, the Simon Bolivar Zoo, the National Theatre, souvenir shops, the central market and the infamous night life circuit.


An authentic Spanish mansion in Barrio Amon, the Hemingway is one of the most photographed buildings in all of San José. Though the city has grown around it, it was originally built as a large hacienda for the family of a wealthy coffee plantation owner in the 1920´s. Still retaining its former charm, it was renovated completely twelve years ago and remodeled to become a charming bed and breakfast.


There are three types of rooms with different price ranges; Economy, Standard and Large Standard, depending upon size and location.  All are equipped with, comfortable beds, cable television in Englisn and Spanish (including live feeds from New York of the Big 3 US networks), telephone with free calls within Costa Rica and ceiling fans, free Wireless Internet access for your laptop, a clock-radio, new furniture, an insured in-room safe ($3 extra per night), and a private tiled bath with hot water shower.  In addition, the hotel also offers laundry service, free luggage storage, and secure gated parking ($8/day).


There is a complimentary tropical buffet breakfast on the garden patio each morning from 6 to 10 am. where you can enjoy eye-opening exotic fruit juice, home-made tamales, French bread and local preserves, fresh local tropical fruits, mild white Costa Rican cheese, hard-boiled eggs, Gallo Pinto (a local rice and beans specialty), and freshly perked Costa Rican coffee.


After a day exploring the sites and sounds of San José, relax and unwind in their Jacuzzi hot tub on the jungle patio, or keep in touch with family, friends and business with their complimentary Free Wireless Internet access.   There is also a computer room upstairs for those traveling without a laptop.
