Nice hotel close to San Jose airport

5 out of 5
Posted Feb 12, 2017
Pros: Really nice breakfast and verandah.
Everything was fine, but airport noise was noticeable, but on the other hand this was also the benefit of being so close for pick up and drop off.

A little oasis close to the airport

Pros: The front desk staff were super, the grounds are beautiful, and the meal fantastic.
Cons: The rooms could use some maintenance (sink drain, loose door knobs), the TV could be updated, and wifi coverage was spotty.
We stayed here the night before our departure, and it was an excellent choice for that. The rooms are showing some age, but overall we had a lovely stay here, enjoying the pool and grounds. The staff were excellent, and took care of arranging taxis and our car rental return. We ate dinner here, too, and the meal was excellent.

After a late arrival late arrival into San Jose airport it was Quick five minute taxi to the hotel to the hotel. Quick five minute taxi to the hotel to the hotel. even with the late check in for ourselves and another couple the host was able to get us a couple of cold beers and we were all able just sit around and relax in the lodge. With the river running adjacent to the property it was a great night sleep. The grounds were well-kept breakfast was great We had some time to explore the surrounding neighborhood before we got our taxi into the city of San Jose. Would definitely recommend Trapp Famil we had some time to explore the surrounding neighborhood before we got our taxi into the city of San Jose. Would definitely recommend Trapp Family.

Nice hotel, peaceful grounds

Posted Dec 8, 2016
Pros: The hotel overall is very nice, close to airport. Staff incredible nice and very attentive.
Cons: If you can improve the Hotel Sign visibility from the street, to make it easier to guests to find it.
Location: Not much to do in the area close to Hotel, except to visit the Poas Volcano, and the Butterflies gardens.
The hotel sign is not big enough and its very hard to find, specially if you are driving at night into San Jose. Crazy traffic in San Jose and very poorly marked avenues and streets, makes it very hard drive into the hotel. Once you enter the hotel, it is indeed very nice, and the grounds are very pleasing. The staff is extremely accommodating and very helpful. The rooms are nice and very spacious, no AC on the rooms, but not too bad, San Jose is usually cool at night. Airport is very near for convenience.

Good place to stay close to the airport

We arrived around 6:30 on a Friday night after driving in horrific traffic; it took us 30 minutes to go the last kilometer. I definitely recommend that you do not arrive during busy traffic times! The grounds and rooms are very pleasant, but we had a short stay with an early flight. We ate dinner after our arrival, and although the menu is limited we had a good meal with attentive service. The hotel arranged an early morning taxi to the airport. We wish we had more time to spend enjoying the peaceful surroundings in the midst of a busy city.

Short stay, 3 nights, at the end of our Costa Rica

Posted Nov 9, 2016
Pros: Close to the airport but a comfortable hacienda style hotel.
Location: There are some good restaurants nearby and a rescue zoo as well as a museum in Alajuela which has interesting historical artifacts about Costa Rica in
Trapp family Inn is an impressive, old style hotel with a good pool and a large garden with a lot of trees, flowers and birds. Although close to the airport the plane noise is not that bad and is a good choice for a last night or 2 before going home. We stayed in the low season so there were not many other guests however we were treated well and ate in the restaurant a couple of times and the food was good. The connection to the Trapp family of sound of music fame is real and there are pictures of the Austrian family in the lobby.

The staff at Trapp Family Country Inn is first rate!!! They accommodated me hours before official check-in and even gave me breakfast although the kitchen was officially all with no extra charge. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable, water pressure in the shower excellent. Everybody was very friendly and helpful!!!

We stayed at this hotel one night to be close to the airport. Hotel was suprisingly beautiful and very tranquil. It is in a very lush setting with a river flowing behind. Staff was super friendly. Complimentary breakfast was great.
