Clean, comfortable and quiet.
Good facilities and good location
It was noisy
Helpful staff, good breakfast. Room with king sized bed is available.
Air conditioner had some problems, but was not needed.
We liked the proximity to the airport and the view of the cathedral from the balcony.
The free parking is actually street parking which made us a little nervous. The room/bed were not very clean. The ac barely worked and we couldn't leave the balcony open because the noise from the street was so loud. Also, they own a restaurant downstairs and the breakfast was not very exciting.
After staying in so many dark hotel rooms it was lovely to have a nice bright room with its own little balcony overlooking the cathedral. Convenient for a cheap taxi to the airport and a short walk to the local bus station for taking a trip to Volcan Poas and other places of interest. Nice breakfast included in the room rate and staff were flexible about letting us check in a little early.
José/Chema and his wife were very nice and helpful, always around 24/7 and speaks very good English. The rooms are lovely, we stayed here again near the end of our trip and had a nice balcony. The shower is nice and powerful. The breakfast is nice and hearty (bacon/egg, gallo pinto/pancakes, toast, juice, coffee). The hotel also operates as a Pizzeria during the day. For the price the value is great. Alajuela is a better place to stay than San José, the hotel is nearer a lovely park where locals sit and chat all day, very safe. The streets have no signs but is next to the Cathedral so easy to be directed to there. There's a nice sports just bar down the road called Relax, which was busy opposite Pizza Hut.
Clean, comfortable rooms in a great location.
This hotel is cute, felt safe, close to the airport and overall the best value we have found near the airport, as we have travelled in and out from SJO quite a bit. The room was clean and comfy. Run by a husband and wife, they are friendly and helpful about where to eat, shop and park. The hotel is in a great location downtown, so you have everything close by...but may be a little noisey for some. We were surprised at how fast Jose had breakfast ready...so we could zoom to the airport. And how tasty it was too...pancakes, eggs, toast, and cookies...coffee and juice...all included!!! We are planning to stay there again next week when we fly back into San Jose next month.
friendliness and helpfulness of the husband and wife that ran the hotel
noise level - mostly from other guests but could hear everything that was going on in the hall way/ other rooms
It's only 5 US-dollars to the airport by taxi. Super fast WiFi. Clean. Helpful staff. Very cosy bed.
It was near the center of town so it was easy to walk around and find good, inexpensive restaurants, coffee shops, etc. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Price for the value was good. I prefer local places over the chains.
We had a rental car and it was very difficult to find since we didn't have a GPS. The directions said that it was at First Street and First Avenue (Uno Avenida y Uno Calle), but even the police didn't know where those streets were located. They should have said that they were next to the main Cathedral and plaza then give the street names. Also, the town of Alajuela doesn't mark their streets so it was impossible to find the streets and distinguish from the avenues.
The hotel was only $57 per night. That's the only positive insight that I can offer.
Hard to sleep from all the street noise. Musty (old house) smell. The breakfast was horrible (cold scrambled eggs with something that slightly resembled ham, a dry pancake, cold coffee, and bugs in the sugar dispenser. The food was cooked & plated earlier & re-warmed in the microwave. The WIFI was really weak on the third floor.
Excellent location - very close to airport
Only soap bars in the bathroom - no shampoo or shower gel
Jose - the owner of the hotel was very friendly and helpful
Room was not clean at all

Dog pup at the entrance
The staff were pleasant. The room was clean. We were just overnight before an early morning flight, but it was nicer to stay where we could go and have a walk around the area.
There's a lot of street noise from traffic.
very nice staff!
Extremely noisy plumbing woke us up at 1am when someone took a shower above or next door. Shower curtains are short so water leaks out into bathroom floor, causing severe slip hazard. No breakfast if leaving early. No secure car parking.
Location very convenient as right in the centre, staff were helpful, breakfast was good and quick
The wifi didn't work on the top floor other than that all was good
Location is realy good, right in the center. Walking distance to all attractions and bus terminals Staff is nice and breakfasts are surprisingly good. Airconditioning.
I do not know why they do not buy new towels. The two I had in my room were all in stains and ripped in several places. They was just nasty! Shower cabin has poor design, so water stays on the floor forever. Pillows are awfull. WiFi did not work on the top floor, I had do go to the lobby. Very noisy in the mornings I used to live in much worse hotels during my travels, but this one is not cheap. I stayed there for one night and the nexd day found a much better hotel for the same price
Fine if you need a bed close to the airport
the room wasn't particularly clean.
Very helpful staff and very comfy bed. Really close to the airport, only $6 in the taxi
Couldn't get wifi at the top of the building in our room
