great airport access, and local culture exposure

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: local culture and airport access, and price 55.00
Cons: parking
Location: on the corner of central park, access to local stores, and the old US favorites Mcdonalds, tacobell, burger king, great coffee shops, local artistry,
more of a bed a breakfast than a hotel. the bathrooms were clean with hot water, the stairs are very narrow, and all but one room are upstairs, not good for those with limited mobility. rooms are about 8x 10 with a bed, small TV, air-conditioned, and adjoined bathroom 6x6, shower, sink, toilet. This is a Safe place to stay, directly in the center of Town. Parking can be a problem. You must use public parking on the street from 6am to 6pm at a cost of 500, colones per hour, (less than 1 US dollar) At night there are a couple of spots directly across from the hotel that will be watched all night. I had no safety or security problems on my stay. The in house restaurant has an Italian theme, the owner considers himself a Chef. However, he did not prepare my meal and the Calzone was undercooked and doughy. My partner had Pasta and it was very good. Overall, I enjoyed it do to being in walking distance of anything I needed and wanted, and it is only 10 minutes from the Airport, which is only a 5.00 dollars taxi ride.

Excellent location in Alajuela

Posted May 29, 2014
Pros: Needs some TLC. Towels were older and worn. bathrooms were small and cramped.
Cons: layout of the room needs to be changed, so the TV is in front of the bed instead of on the side.
Location: Great central location in Alajuela. Walking distance to everything. Buses and taxis always available.
We stayed here because we were visiting family who live in Alajuela. The hotel is right in the center next to the Cathedral and central park. Lots of activity and walking distance to anything. We took the bus to San Jose a couple times. Easy and convenient.

Awesome location to explore the city

Posted May 7, 2014
The location of the hotel was key. In the middle of Alajuela you can really get a sense of the culture and people. We walked around the city for hours exploring. The employees spoke English and were extremely helpful. It was fairly inexpensive and a great place for a night or two especially at the beginning or end of your trip since it's only a 10 minute drive from the airport.

Excellent Bargain for 8-minute Cab Ride to SJO

Posted May 5, 2014
Pros: Cute, great location, low price.
Cons: For the price, this is as good as it gets.
A nice little hotel in an urban setting. Street noise was fairly loud. Staff was very helpful and friendly. I'd stay there again if I had to be near the airport. It's a bargain hotel, so if you want fancy, this is not your place. I didn't get to try the breakfast since I left so early. Clean room, good WiFi.

Convenient and very comfortable

The staff were truly excellent, always there to help. The room was large with a king bed, perfect to hide away with a loved one before flying home. Very reasonable rates. Thanks guys!

A good centrally located budget hotel

Posted Apr 27, 2014
Pros: Location, staff.
Cons: Rooms a bit dated.
The hotel was perfectly adequate for the one night that we stayed in Alajuela. Its location is brilliant and the staff extremely helpful. The rooms are basic but fine. It is good value for the money.

Nice hotel and close to the airport.

Posted Apr 20, 2014
Pros: Very clean and staff very hospitable.
Cons: WiFi is limited.
Location: You are about 30 minutes from the Capitol, San Jose, but traffic conditions might make it longer. An hour or so from the Poas Volcano, a must see.
Seems to be a fairly new hotel with very nice accomodations, i.e. TV, small refridg. and comfortable beds. If WiFi is very important for you choose a room on the 2nd floor. I was on the 3rd level and it did not work very well. The staff was very nice. There is someone always available 24/7. Most of the staff speak some English. Hotel not good for anyone with physical disablities, no elevator, and I do not believe there were any rooms on the first floor. I will definately go there again. A decent complimetary breakfast. In the evening it is an Italian Restaurant, which I did not try. Someone posted that it has a coffee shop; it does not. But you are in Costa Rica, plenty of Coffee everywhere. Overall I give them a 5 and the price is right. I was very impressed and when I visit again I will be staying there.
