It was a small room, but totally clean and very close to the airport, and the guy at the front desk was very helpful. There was also free Wi-Fi and breakfast included, so it fit our needs to crash for the night.

No parking lot, no hot water, many lights weren't working in the room, the sheets were stained, AC unit barely worked and made all kinds of noises - just to name a few. Staff was pleasant and helpful and the room was cheap ($40usd)

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights. it is half a block from the Central Park - the dead center of town. It has all the local charm you could want, but most important, was the manager - Chema (pronounced 'shay-mah'), not sure of the spelling, but what's in a name. Anyway, he worked from early mornings to... More

We needed a place to simply store our bags before leaving for a red eye flight yesterday evening and booked this place due to the location to the SJO airport. Let me just say that upon arrival -our view was barbed wire fences, graffiti, and an area that made me grip my purse just a little bit tighter. We walked... More

Straight to the point no frills. We drove from airport to the hotel. Some one is at the front desk 24 hrs a day. Make sure your car is empty and bark right on the stre wet across from the entrance not only can they see it but it's a police station right down the street. Check in is quick.... More

We spent a week in Alajuela and stayed in this simple home. Our priorities are to have a comfortable bed and a decent bathroom, as we don't like to spend a lot of time in a hotel room while on vacation. This place has both. The staff were all extremely helpful with suggesting restaurants and things to do. They were... More

We arrived at 1:00am and were nicely greated by the desk clerk. No problems at check in. No lift to our room on the thrid floor which was very clean and had a good confortable mattress. After a less than mediocre breakfast our car rental arrived and we were on our way at 9:00. The hotel served our needs well,... More

The service from this small comfortable hotel is outstanding. An easy trip from the airport, we originally planned one night, staying 4 instead. Suggestions from the owner and staff were extremely helpful. For being on a busy street with construction next door, the place was incredibly quiet. Rooms were adequate and clean, the bed more comfortable than our much higher... More

The place is adequate. Nothing to rave about. I booked this room through Hostelworld and was not happy with their representation of the room. It served it's purpose of a landing space after the flight. Would not stay additional time. And was awoken to the construction across the street at 5:30 am. Would have booked elsewhere if I had known... More
