    Very nice host. They leave you alone most of the time to enjoy your trip but is always available when you need help. Safe accommodation to explore the city and surrounding areas.

    Everything was excellent! Mari was very friendly and showed me around the very spacious apartment. The location was in the calmer part of the Cl 33, right where the restaurants are at.

Welcome to these charming apartments of the exclusive Sofia Building in the prestigious Barrio Escalante, considered one of the best places to live in the world. The cozy homes feature private bedrooms, living rooms, full kitchens, and bathrooms, perfect for those seeking a modern and vibrant lifestyle. Our building is famous for its Restaurant Sofia Mediterranea at the entrance of our building.
Our apart-hotel concept and prime location are suited for every kind of guest, from large groups to solo business travelers in Costa Rica.
According to the British magazine Time Out, Costa Rica has one of the 51 coolest or coolest neighborhoods in the world in 2022. This is Barrio Escalante, located between Avenida 3, very close to the confluence of Central Avenue of the capital. Its main street is 33, better known as Calle de La Luz. According to the publication, Barrio Escalante is ranked 41st and is the only Central American site on the list. Calle 33, which begins where the now-extinct La Luz grocery store was located, is known for being the center of good local and international food and being the trigger for a new residential development in eastern San José. There are some 20 restaurants, cafes, and bars on that street alone, without considering those on other roads in the dynamic Escalante neighborhood. In the surroundings of that same road, some residential developments are beginning to be built, mainly apartments aimed at a young public that seeks to live close to everything, especially entertainment venues. But there is also space for those who had left the neighborhood and returned delighted with their rebirth. For all of them, getting to dozens of restaurants recognized for their culinary excellence will take a few minutes on foot. “Barrio Escalante is a unique place with wide gastronomic and cultural diversity. Besides that, it is located a few meters from the central area of San José. We should work to repopulate and improve our capital in an orderly manner,” said Alfredo Atmetlla, Marketing and Sales Manager at Interra, a firm that promotes the 101 Escalante development. In addition to a swimming pool, gym, and other recreational activities, it has a business center so that residents can meet with clients without leaving the area.
