Arrived here late one evening, rattling along the cobbled, dimly lit streets of Alajuela ; our driver looking nervously for the hotel entrance. Nothing much to look at from the outside, but once indoors the place had a certain homey (and definitely Costa Rican ) feel to it. Very helpful young man assisted us (and recommended a fabulous restaurant nearby...

We selected B&B Hotel Pacande Alajuela because it is near the airport and reasonably priced for Costa Rica. Room 5 is right behind the check-in desk and since our window opened to the hall where people passed when they entered, it was rather noisy. The shared bath was clean and well stocked with TP and shampoo. Nice to have breakfast....

We just got back from a week in CR. This adorable and comfortable B&B was the last place we stayed before our early morning flight. We stayed in room #3 at the end of the first floor hallway. It was a bit small, but comfortable & clean, with plenty of space in the closet for luggage. The bathroom was clean...

This hotel is located very near the center of town but on a quiet street. We were in a “Queen Room”, with a small ensuite -- small but comfortable enough for one night. The included breakfast was bread with jam and fruit (and coffee). The place could do with some improvements, and there was quite a bit of mildew along...

I stayed here 1 year ago and had the best experience at Hotel Pacande. It's a perfect spot to stay when you are either entering or leaving Costa Rica. It's close to the airport, the rooms are scrupulously clean and affordable, the space is relaxing and the family who runs it are genuine and kind. Would highly recommend.

Stopped here for one night after flying in to Costa Rica. Everything with the place was good. Room was large, clean and comfortable, breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly. Only note that soured the visit was the person on reception tried to overcharge us by $10 or so and refused to acknowledge the price in the booking...

I´m the manager who came when Carlos, the guy that stay that night at the reception, was charging you. I did explain you that it was a mistake made by us, that we gave...

When I started up my business in Costa Rica, I looked for lodging for both extended and return visits. Not satisfied with five prior situations, to my good luck I discovered Hotel Pacande. It offered Latin American hospitality and European character that I encountered in the past in other small, successful family-run guesthouses, including clean, safe, quiet rooms at a...
