We paid for a room with two beds, a private bath, a working TV and internet. We were put in a room with two beds but the bathroom was shared with the manager of the hotel, down the hall. We tried to turn on the TV and it couldn't be plugged in and did not function. The internet was not...

Mi Tierra is in a good location for walking to sites and restaurants in Alajuela. And it is quite cheap. Beyond that I haven't great things to say about it. The staff are friendly but sometimes not as informed as one would hope. The room was clean and very basic. If things like maid service during your stay, or a...

Our first night was at Hotel Mi Tierra. It worked out beautifully. There were only maybe two other people staying there that night. Breakfast was lovely and everyone was friendly and helpful. We had the number of beds we requested. When we returned for our last nights the place was packed with teenagers and we were not provided with the...

Mi tierra was a good spot to overnight on the begining of the trip. Breakfast was filling an delicious and the staff was very helpful in getting our day started. The owner was really friendly and had great suggestions of what to do if you were staying in the area. More of the hostel feel rather than a hotel but...

The hotel is very close to the airport, and convenient. The staff stayed till I got in, which was late. They are very accomodating, and speak English, for those who do not speak Spanish. I had a room with shared bathroom, as that was all that was available. The room was "bare bones", but clean. The neighborhood is not too...

I should start by saying that I never actually stayed at Hotel Mi Tierra. I originally booked this through Hostelworld.com which clearly indicated a 24 hour cancellation policy for the hotel. Four days before staying here we had to change our plans and contacted the owner directly so they could have as much advance notice as possible. The owner told...

Close to airport - A taxi ride way awaits a smaller hotel I would have thought it more a Hostel than Hotel. The room (Limon) was bare basics. It could sleep 4 in a pinch - double and single bunks. As we only needed a bed overnight it fit the bill. Rooms clean, but the pillows, not so nice. The...

We stayed our final night in Costa Rica at this hotel and it was very nice, clean, basic and the staff is great. The room was spacious (there were two of us and we had a double bed and a bunk bed in our room and there was lots of space for luggage, etc..). It was very clean and very...

You might be surprised, after reading all of the positive reviews, at the bare-bones basic level of comfort here. Yes, the staff is nice and it's a quick taxi ride to airport (not free shuttle). Our tiny room "Alajuela" had the double bed with threadbare sheets jammed against the corner, a huge window to nowhere, paper thin walls, and dim...

Our flight was cancelled due to a snow storm. We were supposed to stay 2 nights. Roberto forgave our first night even though he would not have been able to rent it out last minute. This gesture was very much appreciated. We arrived at 3am a day late, as our new flight was also late. They opened the gate for...
