Trapp Family Inn slipping since last yearPosted Jan 24, 2015
Pros: location to Saan Jose airport
Cons: 24 hour service
Location: the location is an industrial area so nothing to do nearby
Last year Trapp Family Inn provided shuttle service from and to the airport.....no more this year. Last year this hotel provided a nice fruit/coffee/tea/milk 'breakfast' for early flights but this year was half a cup of 'tire store' coffee. Beds and pillows were a bit stiff and lumpy.

Amazing find in Alejuela!Posted Jan 21, 2015
Pros: The staff, the hotel grounds, the citrus orchard, the pool, the rooms, the food.
Location: 5-10 min from the airport. Perfect for a short overnight in San Jose/Alejuela area.
This hotel was far beyond our expectations! The grounds are beautiful with a citrus orchard, pool, beautiful architecture. Our room had lovely french doors that led to a balcony. The food at the restaurant was delicious. The hotel staff was kind, knowledgeable, helpful. I can say enough about this place. The rooms are basic and clean. I ended up with a few bug bites when I woke up, but hey it's Costa Rica. FYI for future travels, we did get scammed on a taxi ride from the Alamo office, where we dropped our rental car, to the hotel. The hotel staff later informed us this should cost $5. It was our mistake for trusting the taxi driver. Our taxi to the airport the next day was the right price ($5)- lesson learned.

Wonderful findPosted Jan 20, 2015
Pros: Beautiful lush gardens, old European feeling
Location: 4 mins to airport, that was the reason to stay there; otherwise the neighborhood doesn't have any reason to be in it.
It was a lovely small family hotel, old European charm, and most conveniently only 4 mins from the airport! Beautiful landscaping, it was a real oasis!

Friendly hotel for stays in AlajuelaPosted Jan 11, 2015
I would absolutely recommend this hotel. It was clean and spacious. The meals were lovely. We had excellent help booking a hotel for La Fortuna from the front desk staff. It was a bit of a challenge to find but that was part of the fun.

Hidden Gem near the AirportPosted Dec 30, 2014
The hotel is a little hard to find. Even our driver missed it. But what a nice surprise behind the gated entrance! The hotel is very beautifully designed and very well maintained. I cannot believe it is only an airport hotel for transitional stay. It is more of a graceful villa. We had very delicious dinner and breakfast. Five stars to the chef and Monica, the front desk assistant. The only complaint is the noise from airplanes taking off, but it did not disturb us too much as it was not very frequent.

suggestivo hotel immerso in un'oasi di verdePosted Dec 16, 2014
Cons: L'hotel si trova a pochi chilometri dall'aeroporto però arrivando di sera, abbiamo avuto difficoltà a trovarlo per mancanza di segnaletica.
La nostra esperienza è stata breve perché abbiamo trascorso una sola notte. Possiamo dire che l'atmosfera coloniale che si avvertiva negli ambienti, era suggestiva e piacevolmente rilassante.
