It's ok, according to quality and price ratio. Although it was noisy and no elevator to the third floor was available. The staff was helpful. We also get transfer to the airport for free, which was nice!

Great value, friendly staff and very clean. Perfect place for a night in between flights. 5 Minutes from the hotel to the airport. They collaborate with the orange airport taxis and it works perfectly. The hotel picks up the bill and organizes the transfer. No hazzle, no extra costs, highly recommended. The hotel itself is very clean but basic. The... More

Not fancy at all. But is a clean spot and a good bed. Has a small pool in case you want to temp avoid the heat. I checked other places around and this was one of the few that meet (exceed)the minimal requirements. Price was good. Recommended

We spent the first night in La Guaria Hotel when we land in Costa Rica Convenient location (5km far from the airport), very basic and simple rooms. If you look for a basic, clean but convenient location this is a right choice! Breakfast is included and service is at the right level. Pura vida :)

I only stayed here for one night after our flight got cancelled and couldn't fly out until the next day. But the hotel was convenient to the airport and they paid for the taxi service, which was nice. Friendly staff. They were able to accommodate us for that one night and it was already late. The staff was very friendly.... More

A small, quiet hotel just north of downtown, about 6 minutes from the SJO airport. It was super clean, quiet, and had a TV in the room. It was a solid 50% cheaper than the hotels two blocks closer to the airport and MUCH more "vacation" than the hostels around. Has a nice clean pool as well. I booked in... More

They emailed me a write up to show a taxi driver for how to get to the hotel, which made it really easy. The staff was really lovely and helpful, we even saw the guy who told us how to get to a restaurant on the street later and he stopped his phone call to ask us how our dinner... More

At the recommendation of friend in Puerto Viejo, spent the night here prior to our flight home. Simple clean rooms, good breakfast and free airport transport. All for $52 per night. Nice helpful staff. What more could you ask.
