Costa Rica Travel Store

The Hemingway Inn is located in the historic quarter of San José , close steps to all the museums, great restaurants, the Simon Bolivar Zoo, the National Theatre, souvenir shopping, banking, the central market and the infamous night life circuit. We even provide a walking map at the front desk to help you locate nearby points of interest.

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, only twelve years ago it was completely renovated and remodeled to become an adorable bed and breakfast.

Though none of the seventeen constantly updated guest rooms are the same, they all have comfortable beds, cable television with over 60 channels in Spanish and English (including live feeds from New York of the Big 3 US networks), telephone with free calls within Costa Rica (and ability to make international calls with a credit card). We are proud to offer new furniture, clock radios with alarms, an insured in-room safe ($3/night), and a private tiled bath with hot water shower in every room. All 17 rooms are equipped with ceiling fans to circulate the air, but heating and air-conditioning are never needed in San José . Rated as one of the world's great climates, we are 4,000 feet above sea level and enjoy a comfortable 72-75 degrees year -round. Our rooms come in two price ranges, Standard and Deluxe, depending upon ambience, size, and location. We also offer laundry service, free luggage storage, and secure gated parking ($8/day).

We offer a complimentary tropical buffet breakfast on the garden patio each morning from 6 to 10 am. You will 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 our Jacuzzi hot tub on the jungle patio, or keep in touch with family, friends and business with our complimentary Free Wireless Internet access. An 802.11g, Wi-Fi compatible "wireless Internet access system" is installed throughout the hotel. We also offer a computer room upstairs for those traveling without a laptop.

Our knowledgeable bi-lingual staff can arrange for you to rent a reliable car or 4X4, or advise you on several types of educational tours. We can book your trips to the rainforests, to relax in thermal pools below an active volcano, go on a sunset cruise, or settle for the slow pace of a secluded sun-drenched beach. For the curious there is bird- and nature-watching, and for the adventurous you can climb a mountain, horseback ride or try some of the world's best (and safest) white-water rafting. The Hemingway's central location makes it a great home base to discover all that Costa Rica has to offer.

Our management makes every effort to ensure that your stay impacts positively on the indigenous physical and cultural setting of this exceptional country, and thus allowing future visitors to equally enjoy the Costa Rican experience.
