Reviewed 16 March 2010

Stayed at Iberia for one night- not too bad.
The hotel staff is very slow, don't expect quick check-in & check-out. The room had a queen bed, a window, small fridge, and bathroom with shower.
Breakfast is not included in $38.00 per night room rate, however the restaurant prices are not too bad.
Average hotel for average price, nothing special.

Reviewed 26 February 2010

Prior to leaving the states we had chosen Hotel Iberia for it's close location to family and downtown and booked two rooms. The reviews were somewhat positive and the price of $33 a night plus taxes for a single offseason room was reasonable.

Long story short:
1. The room was tiny. The bed was even tinier.
2. Only 2 towels and 2 pillows provided. Refused to provide more when asked.
3. Shower door fell off at first use.
4. A/C did not work.
5. No elevator, and no A/C in the building.
6. They shut off the A/C when we left. Wanted to charge us $15 per day to keep it on to keep the room cool.
7. Room was generally aged in appearance. The pillows were old and flat. Bedding was old and not very comfortable.
8. Hotel manager was rude and unhelpful. Made no attempt to remedy the situation.

We checked out of both rooms first thing the next morning.

In contrast. we moved to Hotel Castilla. A/C in entire building, security cameras, helpful staff, large updated rooms, all the towels and pillows we wanted and basically everything you expect in a hotel plus great service for the same price.

This hotel is clean and off of the main road, but not far from it. The prices are reasonable (the "special" discounted rate is the standard; the "standard" rate is used during special occasions, such as Carnaval.) The restaurant, which can be accessed without even walking outside, is one of the pricier options in David, but as far as I can tell, it is also one of the best. I'm not sure what else to say about a hotel that gives you exactly what it promises; perhaps that is it. There was one problem; our A/C was loud. Try the A/C out before you stay.

The Iberia is not a luxury hotel, but the facility is close to downtown, sparkling clean, has good security and the nicest and most polite staff you could ever hope to meet. It was quiet, gave us Fox News around the clock, wireless Internet, EXCELLENT (cheap) rates, and great food in the restaurant (located in the older section of the hotel, just around the corner). We were always greeted with smiles and helping attitudes, and we would definitely stay there again.

After reading TA we chose the Hotel Iberia when arriving by bus from Costa Rica at about 8:30pm. The staff offered to hold our bags behind the counter so that we could eat before checking in & phoned over to their other building (Iberia Sur) to let them know we'd be over shortly. We had phoned ahead from the bus & they had let us know that it would be a $2.00 taxi ride from the bus stop that was about 3-5 min. ride away.

Later on our way back through David we stayed a second night. Front desk folks were very helpful with directions. We again ate at their little restaurant which was a good value with professional, helpful staff.

The rooms are basic, butvwith a/c, cable tv, & private bathroom with hot water the clean accomodations were definately worth the $35/night.
