This is a nice facility with a pool and an adequate breakfast. No air conditioning, though, and they messed up our reservation giving two twin beds to myself and 6'2" son. They said they'd fix it and assigned, instead, a room with four twin beds. We pushed two of them together for him and made it work. The taxi to...

If you are not bothered by CONSTANT, LOUD, and annoying road noise by the major highway that is right beside this hotel, then you might like this hotel. It is basic, but very clean and well maintained. The long-time owners had just sold the place and it will be under new management very soon, so it will be interesting to...

Stayed here for one night before venturing off all over Costa Rica in our car. Close enough to airport and on the way out of town. Restaurant was very good and rooms were clean for a great price. Not sure if I would stay there if I was spending more time in San Juan.

I booked this hotel because it was close to my friends home in Alajuela. Its very clean, very quaint and the owners are really good people. The rooms are nice and they have all types of rooms. I will say that if you want a more quiet time, do not book one of the large apartments near the highway, and...

I liked the owner, the staff and Oscar (the cute little dog). The room was big and very clean. The owner made arrangements for taxi rides and excursions for us. We also took the bus a couple of times from downtown to Alajuela and then from Alajuela to El Coyol! I wish I could have brought Oscar home with me!

This hotel is close to the airport with easy access to the highway. It is nothing fancy but offers clean rooms, a small pool, and welcoming lobby area where breakfast is served. The breakfasts are fresh fruit and scrambled eggs with coffee. The best part of this hotel are the friendly owners. They are very accommodating and helpful with any...

This hotel is very conveniently located close to SJO airport so we booked it for one night. Our flight arrived after midnight and we contacted the hotel to let them know we'd be arriving late. They told us to ring the bell outside the gate upon arrival. We did this for nearly 20 minutes, no one answered. The neighborhood outside...

The situation was the following: The reservation did not come to the system until the next day (of the check in) at 2:20am, it means she came 2 hours before that her reservation arrived. For this reason, the guest came to the hotel and rang the bell without any response. On June 4, the hotel already have all the guests...

We arrived late into San Jose and needed a convenient overnight spot before heading to La Fortuna. They stayed open for us and got us checked in. The rooms were simple, but clean.

We arrived one afternoon. Tired from our travels from Santa Teresa.

Excellent location close to San Jose airport. Safe, clean and good sized rooms. The service we got from David (staff member) was excellent, very friendly and helpful. The owners are Italian and English so a good range of languages spoken and both are very charming and helpful.
