Barrio Amon y Otoya 100 Meters West of Hospital Calderon Guardia, San Jose, Costa Rica
Situated between Barrios Amon and Otoya, away from the traffic of Downtown San Jose, La Amistad is in a quiet and safe historic neighborhood full of Neoclassical and Victorian mansions originally built in the early 1900's by wealthy Coffee Barons. What was once a 6 room private mansion has been recently renovated into a 34 room luxury Hotel. A German Entrepreneur, Wolfgang Hilbick, purchased the mansion in 1992 and started a small Bed & Breakfast founded on the belief of basics; a clean room, a hot shower and a hardy breakfast. It grew from 6 rooms to 40 over the next 15 years, until it found its new owners in 2006. An American Group purchased the Hotel and has spent the last 2 years renovating the Hotel and redefining the Mission Statement: "Treat each person as you would treat an honored guest in your own home".
La Amistad, "Friendship", is the heart and soul of your travel experience. It's million dollar transformation created a new style and flare; South Beach Miami meets Costa Rican Culture.
